    Do you have any other hobbies?

    Oh definitely. I collect dice from a manufacturer called "Chessex". Anyone who plays D&D or any other table top RPG games should know about them. I don't play those types or games, but I've always been obsessed with dice even as a little kid. Anywho, Chessex dice have many many colors and designs, which is why I like to collect them. I also race 1:10 scale R/C on road stock/touring cars. I built my first car over the summer and I'm quite proud of it. It can hit 45mph full throttle with no issues. I'm also a huge NASCAR fan and watch the races every weekend. I even go to a few races every year. Being there in person is the best experience ever.

    What did you buy today?

    42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245

    I'm very tempted to buy this set (possibly tomorrow). The only thing that really turns me off is the big gaps between the fenders and wheels, particularly the front 2. Although I'm tempted to buy the set, I'm trying to work on Han's 10x4 Dump Truck (gathering/purchasing pieces, etc) . Decisions, decisions.....

    What did you buy today?

    Bought MOC instructions and made a $10.00 Bricklink order for about 120 pieces.

    What Lego-related thing did you do today?

    I've put together a wanted list on Bricklink for a new project.

    The what I did today thread ......

    Oh it was just fantastic! Just love taking 6 million things off just to get to it! Heheh it really wasn't fun though... Anywho on topic, I replaced 3 sets of front brakes and 3 different cars. (pads, calipers, bearings, rotors, etc) Talk about messy...

    The what I did today thread ......

    Started to replace Timing Belts + Pulleys on a Hyundai at work. It was a real pain in the butt and it's not even done yet after working on it all day.
  9. Here's my small little review on this incredible MOC created by Nico71. The Honda RA300 was a Formula 1 race car from 1967 driven by John Surtees. This car also won the 1967 Italian GP. This Lego MOC created by Nico71 is one of the most detailed Lego race cars I've ever built and seen. Instructions for this model were purchased on his website. Nico71 did an amazing job with the panels to create the distinct look for the car. From a small distance, it doesn't look to be made from lego (to my eyes). The car has a full suspension as well. Custom stickers were made from Staples brand sticker paper, then glossed after printing. Front wheels were painted metallic siver in Nico71's MOC, however, i'm to chicken to even try; I dont want to screw it up. I also used Michelin tires instead of the Technic Racing tires Nico71 used. The tires are the same size though. The building process proved to be very difficult. It took some time to purchased all the parts and once building began, I had to be very precise even though I made mistakes along the way. It took me about 2 months to build it completely. All and all, I feel very accoplished to build such a beauty. The car is able to run with Power Functions. Power comes from a standard AA Battery Box underneath the dashboard. I suppose a Rechargable Battery Box could work as well. The car uses 2 L motors for 2 rear wheel drive using 3 16 tooth gears. The car is also connected to an accurate fake V12 engine with a pair of 24 tooth gears. The car also uses a Servo motor for steering, although I feel the jerkiness of the steering disrupts the car. For some reason, the car also clicks a couple times when the car begins to go in reverse. It doesnt seem to disrupt the car, unlike the servo. Proportional steering would fit so much better. I plan to upgrade the car with an Sbrick within a month. To conclude, the car is simply stunning. The car looks great, and very accurate and detailed. The PFs work fairly well, but I think an Sbrick will be a much better especially with the proportional steering.The build was challenging, fun, a lot of building techniques were learned, and the car looks amazing at all angles. I seriously have no intention to take this beauty apart. In fact, I have a nice shelf to display this car. Thanks all who took the time to read, and thank you Nico71 for this masterpiece.

    Hiya, Eh?

    Hey all! My name is Sayori, I'm almost a 20 year old (August 2) Canadian woman. I've been building for about a year now as a new hobby, and obviously I got instantly hooked. I build a lot of Technic sets and Technic MOCs, but I enjoy pretty much any type of Lego set. When not building, I enjoy music ( metal \m/ ), and video Games such as Mario Kart, and Gran Turismo. I also enjoy Auto Racing such as NASCAR, F1, Indy Car, and IMSA TUDOR USCC. I'm also a great cook and enjoy being a big kid. (: I hope to make some friends here and have a good time! Cheers!
