    The B model will be a 2 speed go-kart.

    Help needed for an assembly

    For compression, tension and twist, the top one will work quite well. For compression and twist only, I would suggest the bottom one:

    Big Dog Fast Running Quadroped Robot

    Nice work. What is the shock absorber used for on each leg?

    Powered up xl motor issue

    I would suggest contacting Lego customer support. Explain your test and issues, don't mention that you took it apart, and see what they offer as a solution. There's a good chance they'll send you a replacement motor.

    Solaris Urbino 18 Articulated Bus

    Very pretty build with all the attention to details! The bellows mechanism is my favorite part, do you think it can it be made to get a bigger articulation angle?

    Not if the rotating plate is held on the top and bottom by wheels that are connected. Imagine a c-clamp with wheels.

    Nice geometry, I'm interested to see where this goes.
  8. Fantastic work, congratulations on your achievement and thank you for sharing the development process.

    Lego 42098 Car Transporter Mods

    I'm looking at the springs, a couple of questions come to mind: Won't one of the 4L axles with stop get pulled out when the suspension rotates? How does this system compensate for the change in angle of the spring? Does it just rely on the slack between the 4L axle and pin-with-hole element?

    Mindstorms EV3 has the set number 31313, 51515 would fit the numbering scheme as well as the timeline for the EV3 successor.
  11. After seeing @Sariel's post about the new 28 tooth gear, I created an Excel sheet that can be used to find the perfect (if existing), loose and tight fits between two Lego gears. It's only applicable to gears aligned along the same axis, so perpendicular and worm gears will not work - for now. Here is the link to the Excel file, located on Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FrAuXUNHenaWSZgvIRfyscusqirnu2Nw/view?usp=sharing I hope it's useful.
  12. Excellent work, this should have been a part of the official set.

    42099 - 4x4 X-treme Off-Roader

    The fact that the hub has integrated accelerometers sets it apart from the Mindstorms control brick and from third party items like Sbrick+ or BuWizz. The hub falls somewhere between a dumb bottery box (official ones and BuWizz included) and a fully programmable Mindstorms brick. This is a Toyota Corolla placed between a moped and a Hummer. Not all applications need a full-blown programmable solution, and many will benefit from more than a simple battery box. I'm not familiar with the programming capabilities of the PU hub, but I suspect it's a matter of time before @imurvai or another dedicated soul figures out how to link a game controller to it. I'm also looking forward to seeing how far the PU hub can be pushed as far as programming goes. It's obvious that it doesn't have the oomph of an EV3 brick, but its smaller footprint has a definite advantage. I'm hoping to see trucks with self-leveling suspensions and cranes with active counterweights, and whatever else MOCcers can think of.
  14. That monster truck is fantastic, it's like a very nice evolution of 9398.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    The answer you are looking for is Chevy/GMC trucks. They use "square" wheel arches to stand out in the busy field of the trucks. These panels will be great for any car with angular wheel arches, although colors that are more common would be more useful.
