  1. Thanks for the help, @Xewyz2001.
  2. Firstly, I know that it is not good to bump old topics like this, but I remembered this suspension I thought it would be perfect for a project I have in mind. However, once I found this topic, I realised that the images don't work. Do you have a copy of the images that you could share with me?

    Future MOCs

    So I created this topic to see what future projects you might have. Hopefully this can become a source of inspiration for people that can't think of something to build or just want to find a cool idea. My future projects: Tuned Nissan GT-R http://www.gtspirit.com/2013/01/19/fast-and-furious-6-blue-nissan-r35-gt-r/ Features: Lowering suspension Small scale Two speed automatic gearbox Studless body Anyone recognize the GT-R? So what future projects do you guys have?

    Technic Video Tips (Videography)

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I have my sequence set at 1080p, so I wonder if it may have something to do with anti-aliasing. Though, maybe there is nothing wrong with the text, and its just me... If the issue is with it not finding any panels then I think I know how to fix your problem. When you open the DaVinci Resolve installer, you can select what to install, make sure install everything you don't already have installed.

    Test Poll

    Interestingly enough, it says 3 members have voted, but when looking at the poll results, only two people have voted.

    Test Poll

    Doesn't work for me either, it accepts my vote, but doesn't process it. I tested it on: -Windows 10, Chrome -Android 7.1.1, Chrome Beta -IOS 10.3, Safari None of these work.

    Technic Video Tips (Videography)

    I hope there are some people here who know premiere well. Whenever, I add text to my videos and render them, the text never looks sharp. I use Premiere Pro CC 2015. I usually have my resolution set to 1920x1080, rendered in H.264 with a high bit rate, but the text never looks as sharp as it did when I used Sony Vegas Pro 13.0. I have used other render settings, and tried many different fonts, but it never looks crisp. Could it have something to do with the text settings or anti-aliasing? Oh, and yes I have googled it, but I can't seem to find anything.

    [AMS-1] Voting (Finally)

    JTS ZBLJ Leinaud Cool crawlers!
  10. I believe I've made the fastest LPE powered car ever which beats the previous record by over 5km/h. It's powered by a V2 LPE and 6 bar of air pressure. Here is a little teaser, I'm still working on the car so nothing you see in the teaser is final.

    Fastest LPE Car- 30km/h+

    I wonder too.

    Fastest LPE Car- 30km/h+

    Though yes the air pressure plays a big role, you need an engine that can convert that into rotational energy. You lost me, my brain cannot compute what you are telling me... These record breakers have been quite popular recently, so I thought I would join them. There is a good sample of someone else doing the same, and they had the fastest pneumatic engine powered car. That might be a smart thing to do... To measure the speed, I did simple distance divided by time, over a one meter stretch. Though I do want to try to use GPS to measure the speed, but I fear my garage test track wont be long enough for GPS to be effective. A more detailed explanation and pictures will come soon...

    [WIP] 40+ km/h racer - need your help!

    Only if he wants to become roadkill...
  14. No air tanks, just one big compressor (not lego) However, I see the compressor as the type of batteries you would put in your car, you could go with Alkalines, NiMH, Li Ion, or NiCd, and I choose to use a big compressor instead of a lego one.
  15. All it is, is a good old fashion V2, some wheels, a chassis and 6 Bar of air pressure. I'll start a topic soon... Yes, the cylinders are drilled and oiled, switches are stock though. I personally think it still counts as modified pneumatics are rather quite accepted in the LEGO Technic community. Also, the current record uses modified pieces, so I though it would only be fair if I used some too, but I see where you're coming from. Yeah, I know it's not actual "competition" I just wanted to see how fast I could get LEGO to go.
  16. I was sort of thinking of another motorcycle tire, but that is going to make your car way heavier, so your current wheel is still probably your best bet. You guys are going to get some more competition! I've got my car up to 32 km/h so I still have a ways to go, but in my defence I only have a v2 LPE and a super short track.
  17. As a man of science, I'm here to tell you that you're using the wrong front wheel! Since this wheel is not powered, we want the largest front tire to reduce friction. Plus you want to use the skinniest tire possible, to lower friction even more, but this does come at the cost of worsening your steering.

    In this picture, it looks like there are tire shavings on your battery box. The tires could be ballooning outwards, causing them to rub against the battery box, slowing your car down. Maybe try mounting the battery box farther away from the tires.
  19. So finally I'm starting a new project, I've had a mini dark age for the past few months so its really nice to be back. I've always been an Audi guy and I really wanted to build a sports car that no one else has, so I chose a TT. To make it more interesting, I'm going with a rear wheel drive LPE powered drifting TT. Current specifications: - V2 LPE for propulsion - Servo for steering - No differential - No suspension And of course its going to be red with black accents. I also did some quick Photoshop just to see what it could look like in dark blue. Progress will be quite slow for the next few weeks as I have final exams coming up.

    Though this very accurate and easy, it only calculates the average velocity over the set distance, not the peak velocity. Though if you record a short distance towards the end of the track where the car is fastest, this method should work well.

    Lego E-formula competition idea

    I see your point, but how do you expect people to set up the exact same track when not everyone has the space?

    [WIP] Audi TT LPE Drift Car- Shaping the body

    I will try to make instructions for it, but the they won't be out right away.

    [WIP] Audi TT LPE Drift Car- Shaping the body

    Thanks, I would love to use black pins, but unfortunately I do not have any of them. Ahh, I thought you were working with the medium sized cylinders. Small cylinders are not that powerful so modded switches are needed. My wording was a bit weird. I meant to say that it is possible to make LPEs without any modded pieces, but I do use modded cylinders in all my engines. I have tried modifying switches, but every time I try, air leaks out of them like crazy, if you have any tips then do please tell me. I have tested the LPE and the car, and they work fantastically. The engine is extremely smooth and revs decently high for such a simple engine.The car sort of drifts with tape on the wheels. I will start using electrical tape on the wheel as it will give it a bit more traction over regular tape which should make the Audi TT a bit easier to control. Thanks for all the feedback, I really do appreciate it! P.S. I'm also working on an AWD drift chassis with a rear bias toque split powered by an interesting LPE.
  24. +1 Great point Erik, we should definitely do this from now on.

    [WIP] Audi TT LPE Drift Car- Shaping the body

    Thanks for all the feedback guys. No worries, the project is still going on, I've made good progress of the body work and engine. Photos coming soon. You shouldn't need any modded pieces to make an LPE, none of my engines use modded switches, just drilled and oiled cylinders.
