  1. [MOC]Bulldozer

    Nice :)
  2. Wheel hub holder slack (Steering)

    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.
  3. Wheel hub holder slack (Steering)

    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.
  4. 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.
  5. [MOC] Dump Truck 8x8

    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!! :)
  6. I'd buy it. How much would sell it for?
  7. What are you talking about now? What I mean is that I can either build Crowkillers version for $370 or buy the new TLG Porsche for $300. Both looks good, both lack PF.
  8. Is it? Of course it is cheaper to buy a whole set rather than piece by piece, but the way I see it is simple. Let's say I don't own any Lego and I want to buy pieces from scratch for the Porsche from Crowkillers, isn't bricklink the cheapest way to collect all pieces from? Still $370 is what it costs. Besides, Porsche is a high performance car so for me the price is okay!
  9. I don't know why people here complain about the price. Let me give you an example: Crowkillers Porsche 997 GT3 is built of 1841 pcs and features: -6 speed transmission "Hand of God" steering system with functional Dash Steering Wheel Flat 6 Rear mounted Engine Full Independent Suspension Opening Hood, Doors and Trunk Bricklinking the parts (93% of the required=1728 pcs), they cost roughly $330. To build it you need to buy all the parts plus the instructions. So by assuming you need roughly $370. And on top of that, you won't get a box or stickers. The Porsche from TLG comes with minimum of 2700 pcs which is ~870 more than Crowkillers. None of them has PF or RC. Tell me what you think!
  10. [QUESTION] SR 3D Builder

    I think the problem is solved by installing DirectX 9. The program can't run at later versions of it. This happened to me two weeks ago on my new office laptop and now it works :)
  11. Hahaha indeed it does. Will try to build it in and re-route the directional valve to one IR input. Somehow I think the steering is a bit weak. Coming to think of it, the front axle has approx 2.0-2.5kg resting on it
  12. Hey guys, I managed to test drive the truck in my office, it's a bit slow since my air source is a pressurized can of air-dust-blower ~2-3 bars output. Here are two videos as promised:
  13. Here is a video taken 2 months ago explaining the front suspension module. Bare in mind that I removed the top differential for this project.
