  1. Lexus GX EV3

    I am sorry if I sound harsh, but it is a box on a wheels. It looks nothing like Lexus GX.
  2. I know it was very complex to make the lowering mechanism. But what I meant by more complex geometry are the angles - caster, camber, kingpin - and ackermann steering. Do you have another car planned or you need some rest to build another masterpiece?
  3. How long did it take to build it? From idea to finishing? Is servo directly connected to the rack, or is there some gearing? The steering lock could be better. Did you think about using m motor for steering? And more complex front suspension geometry?
  4. Amazing, purely amazing! Seats are very nicely done, I like them very much. Curves are great. You are outdoing yourself with each car. I hope you have a full list of planned cars
  5. Yes, that is what I am talking about. But your dodge is quite different, because there are two bottom arms and the steering link is angled the same as the spring carrying one. front.jpg?dl=0 In e30 the bottom arm itself is angled. 1?dl=0&preview=2016-06-16+23.35.18.jpg That is what I was suspecting
  6. Thank youfor your answer. But let's look at this picture. The steering arm is one stud closer to the wheel centre. And when we draw the imaginary line through steering arm pivot point and lower arm pivot point in the direction toward the rear axle, we should get the same, more or less, situation when the gear rack would be placed behind front axle and steering arm placed one stud closer to the centre of the vehicle than steering arm pivot point. That results in ackermann geometry, am I right?
  7. Hello, I was watching Nicjasno's videos and some questions arosed. Let's say I have front SLA double wishbone suspension, no drive, lower arm is 6 studs long, upper arm is 5 studs long, there is a kingpin inclination and caster angle. I want to have ackermann steering and avoid bump steer. Where should I put the steering arm and how long should it be for steering rack ahead of front axle or behind it? Should it be 6 studs long when it is closer to the lower arm and 5 studs long when closer to the upper one? And another situation - let's say I have multilink suspension - two angled upper links and two angled bottom links, bottom ones are longer, there is also a kingpin inclination and caster angle, no drive. The question remains the same I will appreciate your advice ! Thank you in advance.
  8. Ok, my bad. Good luck with the project!
  9. As far as I know, the engine is under that black cover. What you marked with yellow, is part of the gearbox.

    Yes, if placing the rack in front ofthe axle, its pivot point should be more to the outside. Do Porsche rims allow for placing 1x2 axle-pin hole connector so that the pin hole is oriented toward the outside of the car?

    Is it Sariel's gearbox?
  12. Yes, it is a problem, because if you want to build a specific model, then you have to follow its measurements and try replicate it as much as possible. But if you want to build a 1:8 scale model, then do it and choose another one, more suitable for your bricks availability. Simple as that
  13. Awesome gearbox! As far as the bodywork is concerned, my only nitpick is that I would use another flex axle above front wheelarches to close the gap a bit. Otherwise it is perfect! Few 'buts' about the mechanics though. Why typical, old as world, double wishbone suspension? And steering links longer than wishbones? And no ackermann steering?
  14. Very nice car you are building! Could you show us the suspension? Am I seeing correctly that in the rear one spring is missing?
  15. Now make some audi car around it :) What is the rim piece? What is the scale more or less?
