    [MOC] A 'Clean' Off Road Car Chassis

    So long as it's available in your region, you can order parts of LEGO's Bricks and Pieces service (available in the same area as getting replacement parts). I think the beam with perpendicular pinholes was around $1 CAD on there when I bought some, definitely less than $2 USD.
  2. Hi, a friend and I have been thinking about getting BuWizz 3.0 after buying 2x BuWizz 2.0s last year, and we were wondering when/if a 2x pack will be available for order like BuWizz 2.0.

    Due to the scope of A, I'd go either B, or A, but limited to vehicles (including spacecraft, and the like).

    [moc] RC dump (of a) truck

    Thanks, I'll have to keep that in mind with my next model. And I've been having problems even in normal - forget fast, or ludicrous - they just aren't speeds I would try using seriously on this type of model. Speaking of 2.0, I'm eyeing up 3.0. The PU support looks rather tempting for MOCs as PF usage grows lower - I already have a friend waiting on one, because he couldn't get a servo motor before they sold out, and then it wasn't worth spending about $50 CAD on one on BL, when he could just wait to get a BW 3.0, and have a motor that wouldn't only function as a servo - but as a drive motor as well.

    Crawler tractors, container haulers, backhoes, the possibilities are endless!

    [moc] RC dump (of a) truck

    Wow, this looks amazing! I finally got an order of parts I made a week ago, and have been having fun working on a truck in this scale; not as complicated as something in the arocs scale, and easier to prototype, or change while building. I also noticed you just have the L motor hooked straight up to the axles, without any reductions. How do you keep it from going to fast, and skipping gears? I have a BuWizz myself, and feel like I have to gear my MOCs down by 2, or 3 stages to get it to a point where it will drive without skipping horribly.

    You can have your LEGO any colour you like - so long as it's black.

    42129 - 4x4 Mercedes-Benz Zetros

    As long as the price is right, it looks like an interesting parts pack potentially to me. If it really does have CLAAS tires sized for the medium rim, then it opens up proper-looking tractors, backhoes, and a nice scale for offroad vehicles, skidders, and other such things.

    [MOC] Case QuadTrac 620 & Elmer HaulMaster 2000

    Man. That's a nice looking Quadtrac! I do love interesting looking tracked vehicles, and this sure is interesting!

    Would someone mind "not" letting me know where to find the leaked pics in a DM (not the thread)?

    19482c01 Pneumatic Pump Fractures

    I ended up getting a replacement. As my fix did stop working. Found that out while building my Arocs, and was almost finished ...

    [MOC] Snow Dozer

    Just saw this, and it speaks to me. I love machines designed for snow, especially plows (currently trying to get up the motivation to finish the cab on my plow truck). And snow is nice for outdoor models; once you're done, take it inside, put it by the wood stove, or heater, and let it drip-dry. :) It's definitely giving me some inspiration for future MOCs...
  13. I know the feeling all too well. My hobbies are Game-development, and modding, and then Technic. In all three, I often run into situations where I spend waaay too long making things "just right". Though I do feel that I'm getting better. Finally have a MOC that I've almost finished that doesn't feel hacky on the inside, and works well... mostly. It's a snow plow truck in the Arocs scale, and I decided to not add the complexity of suspension. Which means it can't actually plow snow outside, as the ground is bumpy enough that I never have both wheels on at least one drive axle touching the ground, so both diffs engage, and it just sits there. I decided to just work on finishing it (as the MOC is almost done), and learn from it for my next attempt at a snow clearing vehicle.

    42131 - CAT D11T Bulldozer

    Spot-on. I'm of the camp that RC is interesting, but we haven't had a technically interesting (and cheaper...) manual model, like the Arocs, for quite awhile. The rough terrain crane wasn't extremely complicated, but it did work pretty well, but since then, we haven't had a manual flagship, or even a manual semi-flagship (due to the cancelled plane). The Arocs did well with 2793 parts, and the RTC did well with 4056. I'd be fine with either sort of set, but I've personally had enough RC sets for a couple years, at least.
