    [Review|Rant|Mod|MOC|WIP] 42083 revisited

    It's pretty obvious from the picture that the rear axle was designed so the average numbskull wouldn't struggle with the assemly. And as Erik pointed out, the rest of the build follows suit. So you end up with a poor design leading to a ton of added weight, slack and friction.

    [Review|Rant|Mod|MOC|WIP] 42083 revisited

    Inspiring project, Erik I also really enjoyed your write-up and agree with every point you made. I knew I wasn't going to buy the Chiron - not even at the usual 30% discount - when the instructions were uploaded and I saw this: That's just begging for trouble. So I wasn't surprised when a slew of (mostly novice) users started reporting high friction in the rear axle. Lego's rationale was clearly "let's make a million submodules so it's easy but exciting to build" - fine and dandy, but they almost killed the model's functionality.
  3. I've seen quite a few reports of folks getting an M motor instead of an L.

    MOC Lancia Stratos - an alternate build of 42056

    This turd sandwich is reselling your instructions: https://www.facebook.com/groups/403386893171574/permalink/1146279368882319/?sale_post_id=1146279368882319
  5. I was scrolling through the pictures wondering, "Okay, but where's the Leg... oh" Sublime level of detail

    Teaser - Guess what I'm building

    A Silly Walks generator?
  7. Not if you mount the springs on a pivot:

  9. Supported and shared. Love the looks and how it rolls - I'd buy this instantly, provided TLG didn't apply an extortionate 42070-style pricing policy. On a side note, some users here who have never contributed anything constructive need to know their role and shut their mouth.
  10. This is terrific! I tinkered with a similar solution but couldn't get rid of the slack. You nailed it! Thanks for sharing
  11. Looks terrific! Have you got a link for the universal joints?

    Compact mechanical inverter

    The old driving ring isn't compatible with the blue gears. As for the driving ring touching the half-bevel gear, it does but not to a degree where it produces a ton of friction.

    [REVIEW] 42080 - Forest Machine

    The term "feller buncher" would've drawn comparisons to @desert752's masterpiece, followed by a lot of mocking and guffawing directed at TLG.
  14. No problem mate, thanks for the feedback! Not sure what my phone supports - it's a lousy old Samsung J3. I'll check the documentation.
