    Axle Collection Thread

    I see, so you want its total width (including tires) to be 17, then I can suggest below but you need to make them narrow or wider unfortunately. this truck uses 42009 tires so should be same scale what you are working on I guess: this truck's total width is 19. the front axle uses "Technic Axle and Pin Connector Perpendicular 3L with 2 Pin Holes" as arms. maybe you can change it to 2L perpendicular versions which will make the truck 17 width with tires. OR this pickup is 15L but has smaller tires: principle is similar, you just need to extend the main 5x7 frame one stud wider at front. offtopic: I always thought "17L" axle means it does not count hubs and only arms plus chassis should be 17 width? is it wrong?

    Axle Collection Thread

    does this help you? F (drive%2C high suspension) [bandit technical].lxf it uses the hubs from 42000 so it becomes 17+ but you can decide to use or not. it is from my bandit technical truck.
  3. thanks a lot Didumos69, I tested it and works like a charm. the axle is raised only 1 stud if I use a 3x5 liftarm and that is fine by me. cheers
  4. hello everyone, sorry for long title but I do not know a proper way of asking this. I have a problem at hand: I wanted to use a small linear actuator to lift something. I am building a truck and want to lift the second rear axle like real trucks do. I put a linear actuator in a horizontal position and hoped to lift the axle in a mechanism as you can see in LXF below (red axle is the one I am trying to raise). I had to see the movement in real and built it but I saw that it will not work. as linear actuator is extended, the spring is put into a weird angle and eventually it starts bending. I only need to raise axle one or one+half stud so I did not care about a little illegal movement. Is there a better way of using a horizontal placed linear actuator to "raise" sth in vertical direction? Is there a general solution for such a problem? thanks
  5. I cannot say if my creations would fit match your needs and as self-promotion is allowed, I can put some of my creations here as examples. They are on rebrickable with LXF only, no instructions. They all have independent suspension and 4speed gearbox. Some have other regular functionality like a fake engine or opening doors but as far as I remember only fiat does not have fake engine (others have boxer 4 or boxer 6 or v6).

  8. hello guys, I recently finished a small scale MOC and wanted to "add" here but it seems I have not shared my small scale cars here. I will post all of my (old/future) MOCs here in a single thread.

  9. Thanks a lot guys for help. Although I cannot test your suggestions now immediately, I believe the "13L DBG beam bending" theory seems very plausible. Only happens one direction, I can confirm this. In my test runs I did not cause any force to stop the car so perhaps if encounters such a force that tries to stop the XLs, maybe grinding will happen in backwards also. @Didumos69 unfortunately I use these holes in the 5x7 frame, your solution might fix the problem but the design will be changed a lot. I have 2 black (in LXF yellow there and it is necessary in my current design. Still this is a good idea to sandwich the diff. thanks for idea. I added a new test LXF: For a quick dirty fix, I can add the orange 3L beams to make sure the parallel 13L DBG beams are not bending away from each other but on the other side of the diff, perhaps too far away. This is something I can add without breaking down whole model. Do you think it would work enough to prevent gear slipping? thanks
  10. hi everyone, I have a weird problem about old differential the yellow 8t gear grinds with old differential 24t side if the XL motors run at full speed in 4th gear in my gearbox only if forward direction. Weird thing is, on backward no problem on same speed. On other gears (1,2,3) they work fine as the whole setup runs slower. During the build I tested under light load (build %30, only chassis) and it worked fine but with heavy load (build %90, almost complete) now it grinds a lot. Learning about the gearbox problem when the model almost complete is really demotivating. Do you have any idea why it behaves like that? How can I solve this issue? Incomplete LXF but the gearbox is there: Note XLs are geared down on 4/5 and 1/2 ratios to the driver rings (not shown in LXF yet) thanks

    Technic 2017 Set Discussion

    from the pictures we can see arocs outriggers are common in different uses. that new special "worm" gear to work with the outriggers will be very useful for smaller designs. I would prefer the ship's crane for submarine to be a really technic crane instead of some other custom part used, even a basic crane works fine there. I hope LEGO puts a real technic crane there in final product (same for the white piece at front under heli pad)
  12. thanks for comments guys. If I remake it I will test with soft spring but it might be too soft. I dont want to disassemble it until I create LXF (1/3 done, in progress). Roof is a little high on front because of the 2 black liftarms to stabilize the roof. You can see to 2 black liftarms going up between the seats (almost like 75 degree angle). They rise the roof to a large angle which makes too high, pivot for movement is the 3x7 curved panel's (#3) black hole you see just behind seat. If I remove liftarms then roof looks very nice but very flimsy and not static, any unintended hit on roof changes the shape of car. I will look into this issue. Another cause is the 8L black axles on windshield, round pin connectors can solve it but I prefer a single 8L axle to match the long 26L flex to back :) I dont have 42056 but bricklinked some items to test a few things. After I liked the panels I decided to buy 42056 and waiting it to show up in my stores. Note about front: according to the scale I used, car front is short actually. Maybe photo angles make it look bad or the 19L flex not connecting the vertical axle connector?
  13. Hi Everyone, I wanted to build a Gallardo to put it on my desk but I could not find something to my liking on web so decided to have some try on it. Sorry another boring supercar topic... Here is a real one first: My Scale length has some issue but other than that seems to be in scale, height from ground is one stud higher but car clearance is 1 stud higher as well which offsets when suspension is compressed. Best if you open it in big screen/size from bricksafe My Car A quick comparison with an orange 42022 Functions: * 4 wheel drive (unswitchable, has central differential but became useless as switch is never disabled) * independent suspension, 1 hard spring (yellow) on each wheel * scissors doors openable by a small gear under the car * 4 speed sequential gearbox: operated by gear lever at 4 positions (front: 1, back: 4) ratios (1 to 4): 27/45 , 15/45 , 9/45 , 5/45 before differentials. input is wheels, output is fake engine * Hand Of God steering at cockpit with working steering wheel * Ackermann steering geometry * V10 fake engine Features: * Orange * size in studs: 58 L, 27 W, 17 H * size in cm: 45.5 L, 22.5 W, 14 H * Spoiler * Fake disk brakes (in red, hardly visible from outside) Credits: * Sariel's Scaler * Pvdb's Koenigsegg One:1 90degree axle stopper for gearbox sequential shifter. * 42056's Sequential Gearbox :) Rest is pictures: Front: Back: Side: The double black thin 4L and the LBG towball pin is the gear lever. At front position it is gear 1, at back position it is gear 4, at different positions in the between are gears 2 and 3. Way simple than what the car deserves :( 1st gear: 4th gear: Scissors doors, here you can see some nice looking seats as well :) it uses small turntable Operating gear for doors and its mechanism, the black 20T gear opens and closes the door with the worm so door stays closed or opened: Ground clearance is more than the car have to in scale so even a big finger can operate it from under car Ground clearance, more than I expected I admit. That is why car is 1 stud higher, about 2.5 studs unfortunately: Gearbox from bottom, very similar to 42056 Gearbox switch mechanism, Pvdb's stopper here, twin yellow 2L with rubber: V10 fake engine, didnot close its surrounding on purpose Axles, back is a 42029 style, front is a custom one I made but nothing complex. my req was to make it low height and allow Ackermann steering. Red things are fake brake discs:) Bottom view: Top view with a non-lego flex axle (26.5 stud length) and a regular black (19+7) one. sorry for different photo direction (the one from back of car to front windshield connector on roof) Things I dont like: Color choices: new 13x3 panel limits almost every color but still orange can be used with black or white car perhaps. * Black, works like a charm, every piece I used in orange could be found black in new sets. * White, similar to black but there are a few pieces not in white or non common (axle connector and 135 degree connector, and the 13x3 panel) * Red,if you have the #3 connector then again almost every piece can be swapped. * Blue, yellow, green, I hardly think they are available, maybe from old sets. Additional photos are at: Bricksafe folder Cheers
  14. truck looks very nice. do you have tumbler tires ? would they be too small or out of scale?

    Volvo FH and EW 160 Play Set

    it become a very nice truck and matches Volvo great. I have to mention, design of crane arm is very good. instead of making contests like latest Porsche, Lego should make contests like this, "a vehicle to match a (specific) set". you would win immediately.
