    Bugatti Chiron 1:8

    Familiar uh ?... My apologies I forgot to say your name in the topic. I fixed that. By the way, your anti roll bar setup is very easy to implement and so realistic. Thank you for sharing that kind of idea. you helped me so far :) Thank you for the sharing !

    Bugatti Chiron 1:8

    First of all, thank you for all your comments ! Glad to see you liked it :) Yes I'm planning that ! I'm very curious about future TLG version. Much more about the (probable) gearbox. May I will make some kind of review but for sure I will take photos to compare Yeah I fixed roof height due to lot of remarks on YouTube and Techlug ahahaha ! IMO, it's very difficult to evaluate ratios aspects of your creation when you look too closely since 2 years. Forums and you guys help me to stand back and give me opportunities to improve my MOC. I'm very interesting about TLG future approach too. Hopping about a dark blue/blue color scheme and not too much new specifics parts. You spoted the reverse ackermann effect, nice shot ! I think if you ask the question you know the answer ^^ In reality when you have transmission (4WD) + setting of adjustable suspensions + anti-roll bar, there is no more space for steering in front of the axle. The angle of steering stay the same than positive ackerman angle. It's a Formules 1 geometry configuration. Thank you for your comment but my Bugatti Chiron doesn't follow TLG standard :) I'm so far of Lego designer building technics. It wasn't my aim either. But I think that trying to create something new and different is a good way to improve skills for future MOCs. I'm totally aware of TLG's standards. Like you said @Meatman, that's definitely a fan (perfectible) build :) Concerning "C" silver : I choose silver (or grey) 1/2 thickness liftarm to create a cohesive and strong chassis continuing below the bottom of doors. The line could be more "just" with flex for sure. Am I answer your question ? Nice detail about the 1x2 grey liftarm ! I'll fix it :) I agree with your remark about rear diffusers. I'm waiting TLG treatment. If I like it, I will improve my creation ! ahaha nice ! So I have long time followers :) Very very useful this steering wheel link ! I used it to set panels too. I'm glad to heard you liked the main shape of the car. For your information, the gearbox itself has 1 000 parts. Yeah that's it. You have one driving ring for steering (the one you spotted Carsten) and one for driving train to disengage. Because it a dual clutch gearbox there is always at least one driving ring engaged on two.
  3. Hi everyone ! Fasten your seat belts, because today I’m reaching the top speed of 420 km/h with this replica of the Bugatti Chiron 1:8 scale ! Around 4,000 parts, a weight of 3,7 Kg it takes me 2 years of study and design to achieved it. First of all, the pictures renders are slightly different than the video content. I made some modifications (for the roof...) The french manufacturer mixed-up performances and sophisticated design for an unique masterpiece with only few units sold for. The real challenge grabbed my attention so I decided to design it. For more informations about the car, please visit : The road map includes parameters following : 1:8 scale (using of 42056 tires) PFS features (powered by one Buwizz ®) 7 speeds Dual-Clutch Gearbox (DSG) Full 4WD transmission A good approximation of the bodywork Active spoiler feature A high rigid chassis Modular assembly This MOC includes a lot of characteristics as well basics manual ones that more complex ones. But first, here are some pictures below : Main features : Dimensions : 56 x 24 x 16 cm Weight : 3,7 Kg Power supply : 1 Buwizz with easy access Motorisation : 5 mottons Independent suspensions Manual ones : Openable doors with locking system, and openable hood by friction Steering HOG Unplugable motorisation (RC motors and steering ) for playability because the car is very heavy ! Openable trunk providing self-invented W16 engine details and Buwizz access Openable gloves box… …hidding a secret key witch unlock nice PFS features ! (insipired by the real top speed key) After a long build process, I’m very proud of the result. During development, I decided to put an additional feature to improve playability : a small lever to unplug motorisation. Indeed, the car is very heavy so you can’t move it easily. From wheels to the drive train and the 2 RC motors, the high gear reduction lock any movement. The secret key system create some kind of manual interaction allowing selection between 2 motorised features powered by one M motor : Spoiler extension (3 handling modes reachable) Adjustable suspension in height I’ve made a small video to illustrate spoiler mechanism : I found inspiration on Pipasseyoyo Bugatti Veyron system for height setting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaX5JLdBcyg. Irreversibility is performed by 4 worms screw, one for each axle. http://www.techlug.fr/Forum/topic10504.html I assume all similarity with @Didumos69 anti-roll bar and torsion bars system on the front axle. His advanced setup is very strong and reliable. https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/143038-moc-rugged-supercar-hammerhead-19-scale/ Remote ones : 5 motors : 2x RC motors / 2x M motors / 1x XL motor 7 speeds Dual-Clutch Gearbox (DSG) driven by XL motor Spoiler animate by 1 M motor and its own gearbox Suspension height controlled by the same M motor Steering by 1 motor or the HOG Full 4WD transmission driven by 2 RC motors Gearbox ratios : 1st : 1:9 2nd : 1:6 3rd : 1:5,4 4th : 1:4,5 5th : 1:3 6th : 1:2 7th : 1:1,8 R : 1:9 Gearbox inspiration : @Sheepo Rubicon Jeep shifting system :http://www.sheepo.es/2016/06/jeep-wrangler-rubicon-instructions.html @ibessonov gearbox : https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-5565/ibessonov/sequential-rc-4-speed-dual-clutch-gearbox-with-pf-servo-motor/#comments Other pictures : Hell yeah Enjoy pictures in HQ : https://flic.kr/s/aHsm9s9M7C And here is the video : I hope you'll like it ! I'm making instruction video for the DSG gearbox, see you soon !

    Gearbox collection thread

    I'm proud of my last version of the DCT (dual clutch) gearbox with 7 speeds. PFS and manual version. I will publish more information soon, make a new video and instructions. Designer : Levihathan Motorized by 2 RC motors and 1 XL for the shifter. Manual version switchable Sequential Dual Clutch, speeds sequence, AWD or FWD/RWD, differential bridge inside 7 speeds and Reverse Highly inspired by Sheepo's gearboxes. I learned a lot with frenches designers like NLF77 or Durian. This is a working version, compact and very reliable. Stay tune, I'm on the way to make a new video :) This is two to see the previous version in action, and a quick video to watch main features on this version. New one : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWTlnuMJZl0 Previous one : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRqLCK8UyzA Thanks :)

    [WIP] Bugatti Chiron 1:8

    Hi guys, I just want to show you some improvements added one the Moc and show my progress :) The front is over. I finished the roof. I'm preparing BL orders to complete it. The mayor difficulty is to find empty place to put elements like motors,... I'm scarred of the position of the batteries box now. I really want to add a switch to power the car manually but I don't know if I will have enough free place... What I've done : Motorized direction + Switch (final version) Transfert gearbox between functions gearbox and transmission Openable doors Design of the Hog Sports seats Let's pictures talk :) Instructions for the gearbox took me a lot of time and it's not finished yet. And if I spend my time to make the instructions, I can't moc. And today, I prefer build my car :) I hope you will understand. See you next time !

    You're right ! I confounded 160mm and 106mm... Shame on me ^^ Finally there is no mistake, the scale is correct on the paper and on the MOc ! I was lack of coffee last night I think... Thank you brunojj !

    Thanks for your support :) Sadly, I've made a scale mistake on my front end. I read 106 cm long instead of 116cm... So, it's to short. I've re-ajust length with 6 more centimeters. On the picture you can see on the middle the added frame in lbg. It's a good new for me 'cause I can set more more mechanism inside, but I have to modify the front end design a little bit...

    He, nice tips ! Some improvement on the Bugatti Chiron : What I've done : Motororized direction. I set a small motor on left front end. I added a direction a compact clutch system to switch between hog and pfs motor (quite difficult) I don't if I will set led in the future. I'm working on the flex style/position around front wheels. I hope you'll like like ! Stay tuned !

    Great memory ! Indeed I used 2 RC motors to powered my first version of my gearbox. But now if you want a display version of the gearbox to appreciate each speed and mechanism, you can put 2 RC motors. I've found Sheepo Porsche 911 topic recently and he said that the last speeds on his PDK gearbox can not be use even powered by 2 RC motors. I don't know if I'm clear but I really wanted to have a working gearbox (with cool mechanism, etc...) able to move my supercar. That's why I've anticipate a display RC version :) Anyway, may I'll try to add some modifications to give me the chance to set RC motors into my Moc. You said it, two RC motors will help me a lot to fit the spoiler/airbreak system... I like manual supercars too, like Pissayoyo one : http://www.techlug.fr/Forum/topic10504.html So I decided to create a global clutch to disconnect pfs motors from the transmission. Yes I use model scaler like Sariel's one. I use calculator to transform real dimensions into Lego one. After that, I notice all calculate dimensions on each view on my computer. Do you proceed differently ? Heeeeel yeah ! That why I began the bodywork now. I don't set all functions I want today, But have a nice design is very important for me. I bought some dark blue pieces to see. I really appreciate your work, you and Madoca are my mayor sources of inspiration for design ;)

    I found a compromise into the geometry to reduce friction because there is lot of pieces in movement. But the cinematic is very cool. @Saberwing40k I will add yellow bushes. It could but more apparent. The gearbox is not too high but when you add the W16 on it, I'm 2cm to high... I didn't find a issue for that. Maybe re-design the fake motor, I don't know... Ahahaha !!! I love working on my Mad catz mousepad ! However I don't play video games... I guess it's a cat was murdered on the pad, but I'm not sure ^^

    Hell yeah ! 16 moving pistons precisely ! I created a W16 engine without meta pieces. The result is compact and realist Thank you and yes, indeed...
  15. I everyone, I start a WIP topic to show you frequently my progress on the Bugatti Chiron. Here we are. I wanted to create a new supercar (or megacar) before I finished my dual clutch gearbox. I love Bugatti brand and the new Chiron is so beautiful so I decided to create and design this car in Lego. I don't have finished instructions of the gearbox because it's very long :( All the features attended : A 7 speeds + reverse sequential dual clutch gearbox ( You can't see it on the picture because I'm working on the instruction) It's placed under the w16 engine Variable hight suspension on the front and on the rear Working pfs direction 4x4 transmission Working spoiler A manual gearbox to select between two rc functions (move the spoiler or move the suspensions) A global clutch to disconnect the car from the 4 L motors pfs. Typically ti will be possible two switch between a manual and a RC mode A hog for the manual mode Manual doors and roof I will add the real specifications soon. So, what I've already done now: The new dual clutch gearbox Rear axle Front axle Under chassis A mini functions gearbox 2 speeds W16 realistic motor The global clutch transmission I decided to begin the global design of the car because it the most difficult to create IMO just after the working transmission :) When I will be satisfied by the design, I will add the missing features and add others maybe. I think It's the best way to build a supercar. If the design is bad, even you have the best mechanic created, nobody care. I choose blue obviously ;) I've already ordered a lot of blue pieces on BL. Stay tune and do not hesitate to comment ;)
