  1. Why not? Think about it: You get a Control+, XL-motor and an L-motor. With the control+, you will be able to do some app-programming. This set is rumored to cost 129USD. In the past, the tracked PF racer cost 80USD, but PF isn’t even close to how advanced Control+ line is. That same kit didn’t even give us any new parts. Not only this, but add to the fact that IF we get a differential part and a new clutch gear, the price will be justified.
  2. How will that work since the packaging only shows one XL- and one L-motor? I think the red gear is a new clutch gear and that explains why the kit costs so much. This kit will give us: Control+ Hub XL-motor L-motor New differential part New clutch gear Setting aside the control+ electronics, by releasing 2 brand new parts , the price is justified. Regarding the gearbox, I think the different speeds are achieved by software programming. I believe the speed is pre-defined in the Control+ program. By selecting the different gear levels using an app button, you limit the current running to the motor.
  3. I think the differential will come as a separate part (with internal gears) without any gear pre-assembled. Looking at the right part of the differential housing, you can clearly see that its side has the same shape as the transmission clutch ring. Smart move by TLG I would say as we can now use the differential housing with any of the available clutch gears, 16z and 20z. I hope that the red gear will turn out to be a 28z clutch gear
  4. Beautiful work! Really like the modular approach :)
  5. I don’t think TLG would release it as so. Simply because that would make the hub + the rim unique to the Chiron. If I’m right, TLG would make only one part unique to a licenced set. That is a new set of rims for Porsche, new set of rims for Chiron. They would introduce a 6x6 flat disc with holes, but it wouldn’t be unique to Chiron. Same as with the steering hub for Porsche which is also a part of the Claas Tractor. However, other parts that are unique could of course be the imprinted tile in the Porsche. The part itself isn’t new, but the print itself is. Now I believe they will introduce the disc with Chiron, and then for the next motorcycle set use it as a disc brake as well :)
  6. If you look at the first teaser picture of the rims, you can see halfpins integrated in the design, as well as half stud deep holes. Thats why I think the disc would be half stud thick. I just hope it will have minimum slack altogether :)
  7. That is exactly what I mean. So a half stud thick 6x6 disc, mounted in-between the rim and wheel hub :) Using the same wheel hub as we already have, it would be a legal connection. My only concern is that the setup will have quite some slack. First off, the small slack from the Porsche wheel hubs, plus the additional from the half stud disc. Of course! There will be nothing more to it than just a flat half stud disc that is 6x6 :)
  8. Here are my speculations: The rims will be new and unique to this set, same idea as the rims for the Porsche GT3. However, these rims will feature 3 integrated halfpins as well as 3 half stud holes. To this, a new molded part will come: a 5x5x0,5 or 6x6x0,5 disc, with 6-hole pattern, and some brake sticker applied to it. This part will be mounted on the rim, fitted with intergrated halfpins, and then the hole subassy will be mounted on the same steering hub as the one we already got from the Porsche and Claas set. Sorry, I don’t believe we’re getting new hubs.
  9. I have built the left hub based off of your images and can tell you now that it’s very weak. You need to stiffen it verticaly for it not to snap apart
  10. Hahaha initially I started to build the front suspension after the Porsche instructions (downloaded from Lego). I thought it was not realistic as the real 911 features. So I looked in the MOD thread to see if anyone had made a McPherson suspension for it. Well sure, both MaxSupercars and Tommy had built some using LDD, yet the real one ended being very unstable. So I studied the images and built own and the end result: Fenomenal! All the parts in my solution are stiffly braced with each other, no weak points what so ever. The only weak part is within the shock absorbers themselves (rod inside the housing. What I'm trying to implement now is Ackermann steering, which should not be difficult. I'll give you a little clue of an added/changed part (riddle): Red shock absorber.
  11. I already own 4 of Nicjasno's turntable wheel hubs, and I'm planning to modify the Porsches' front suspension with them. The plan is to make a real McPherson strut suspension. I have a very nice solution for it as of now.
  12. Hello to you all. My question is to you who bought either the Claas Xerion or the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Have you noticed any difference between the new wheel hub holder (Porsche) and the old one (appearing in 42000, 42039)? I remember the old one was featuring a lot of slack, yet I was hoping that TLG would solve that problem with the release of the new one. I haven't bought neither set and I'm planning to buy the Porsche for Christmas.
  13. Dude... That has got to be my favorite Lego video of all times. The truck looks so sick!! Gotta build this for sure. Instructions NOW!! :)
  14. I'd buy it. How much would sell it for?
