  1. So this is tragic news... the Mindstorms Gallery is closing? Does that mean that I lose all my projects that I uploaded? As if closing the message boards wasn't enough? Fortunately, I have a website, so all of that can be moved... but I still can't believe this is happening. So many memories... And I really dislike the format of the new gallery. It appears as if you can only add pictures, similar to the Technic gallery. That's a huge step backward. What is LEGO doing?
  2. Thank you, MangaNOID! I'm not quite sure what you mean, but the pull back motors are of the same unit as the rear axle. The rear axle is hinged to the body of the truck, and a single large shock absorber links the rear axle and body (live axle suspension?) The suspension travel is extremely large, anyhow. So I simply spin the rear wheels backwards until I meet resistance before its internal clutch snaps, then I let go and it drives Also, I converted the single axles into the circular pieces that could attach to the large wheels securely (I'm forgetting my LEGO terms, lol). These motors are fun to work with! Creating these models are fairly easy, which is probably why I've had time to build quite a few of these instead of working on my Mindstorms project that has been sitting in a box for over a year Thanks, Jurss!
  3. [EV3] GLaDOS

    Impressive build, The_Icestorm! I'm happy to see you're still building and active on the Mindstorms Community =)
  4. I built this Lego Technic Pull Back Truck with rear long-travel suspension about a year ago and just got around to filming it now! Two pullback motors drive the rear wheels and off-road tires! In this video, I simply go all action with the editing and test this Lego Pullback Truck in the elements! Please let me know what you think about the editing =)
  5. Lexus GX EV3

    Nice vehicle! I understand how difficult it can be to build with Mindstorms
  6. Lego Mindstorms Ev3 Tank Bot CUBE

    Thanks for your input, LucyCol!
  7. Hey Guys! I have been building with Mindstorms for just about 4 years now. To think of that is pretty mind-blowing! So I decided to re-create a video on a creation I built almost 3 years ago: My Lego Mindstorms CUB3. Description: "Built with LEGO MINDSTORMS and Technic components, this creation includes: 2 EV3 Large Motors, 1 EV3 Medium Motor, 1 EV3 InfraRed Sensor, 2 small linear-actuators, a pair of hidden caterpillar tracks, and more! With its insignificantly-looking cubic structure, CUB3 is engineered to look like your ordinary box just lying around. Decoration, anyone? Your neighbors will find out soon enough. Just watch!" Hope you guys enjoy! P.S. - Some of you EB users gave suggestions on my video editing of a previous video. I tried to follow that advice when editing this video. What do you think? Thanks!
  8. Thank you for the suggestions, kbalage! Based on your suggestion, I purchased a camera stabilizer. Hopefully, I'll be able to use it soon! No, I haven't. Thank you so much for sharing that helpful thread!
  9. Hello there! After roughly four months, I have finally scrapped together time to make another LEGO video. But this time, I decided to try something different and take you behind-the-scenes of the original video. In this vlog style video, I show you how I was able to create the various shots I did with a custom LEGO GoPro mount I found online and modified to fit onboard my simple Lego pullback car. I even built a Power Functions motorized camera dolly with steering abilities to film turntable style shots. Please watch the video and share your thoughts on my new editing style and attempt to raise production quality. I plan to begin adapting a series to this style format/editing if I get enough positive responses. Also, if you have ANY suggestions on how to make my videos better, PLEASE share them! I am always looking for ways to increase the production quality of my videos, and without feedback from viewers such as yourself, I will never know And yes, I will get rid of that lame intro.
  10. Quick, easy, compact, and torquey mechanism for transferring input to output perpendicularly.
  11. [WIP] Honda S2000

    Been following this project for two years; have you completed it yet?
  12. [MOC] Subarute

    I watched both episodes from Mighty Car Mods and Roadkill! This model is awesome
  13. Simple Lego Technic Pullback Car

    I used Blender in my previous videos, but most Blender templates that I've seen are extremely similar, and it got old for me after a while. Also, making a custom Blender intro myself is out of the question because I have no experience (or time) with Blender. But I do agree with you guys; I really hate the advertisements and low video quality, but I decided to try it out just for the sake of it.
  14. Simple Lego Pullback Car - This Lego Technic creation is the smallest, simplest pullback car I could design without sacrificing stability. It features a minimalistic design. The pullback racer is so stable that it supported my onboard GoPro (yes, I finally purchased one) To anyone interested, I used RenderForest to create my new intro: https://www.renderforest.com/signup?afil_link=5ed9f2b19acd2581437c1d2cb1ee5473
  15. Lego compact gearbox - a super simple and compact mechanism! I originally built this lego technic gearbox for a robotic door lock. You can build this simple lego gearbox through the link below. Features a 1:8 gear ratio reduction using a worm gear.
