  1. Actually, this part is still widely known as "Control+ Hub". Not an official name but causes no questions on its matter and membership of "Electrical" families (lie 9V, PF, Powered Up, Control+ etc.). "Technic" is a name of LEGO theme and makes no sense on the part origin as didn't reveal that it's Control+ related part. The "Technic" theme has a lot of hubs, including Technic wheel hubs...
  2. One more modification is in progress. It was frozen as was highly related to Mack Granite, and now it's ongoing. My biggest modification (in size, as well): Made in light-bright orange color (42099). It's not so easy as if I used just yellow but I believe this color works better as "school bus yellow" 4x2 chassis from Mack Anthem (with Set-forward modification), with a bigger wheelbase. rear axle suspension. I didn't choose the geometry yet but want to have some "humpty-dumpty" effect when passing some obstacles, like railway crossings. inline-6 engine from Anthem\Pinnacle\Granite modified hood borrowed from Granite driver's door from Anthem\Pinnacle\Granite passengers' double-door. I wanted to make some complicated feature here, but found that school buses have dead-simple doors, are juts opens outwards, like your wardrobe... I will make some handle or lever to control it anyways. rear emergency door with handle-lock foldable "stop" side barriers + front barrier. I will try to make a single control lever for them. Hope, I will finish it once...
  3. Finally, I'm ready to present the Granite GU713 model. It's the first Granite made of 42078 Anthem using Set-Forward scheme that allows it to beat the heavy-duty challenges still meeting the bridge formula (wheelbase/load capacity ratio). https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-47968/VoidSerpent/mack-granite-gu713-64ft/#comments https://bricksafe.com/pages/Void_s/42078/mack-granite-sf The main features are: Chassis-frame unified with Pinnacle (my previous SF model) and compatible with Anthem (SB trucks) modifications Ladders+fuel tanks unified with Pinnacle Anthem/Pinnacle/Granite unified cabin with interior DayCab roof - compatible with Anthem and Pinnacle Granite Hood, based on @grego18f's model but converted to SF axle placement and new grille shaping Bull bar for possible construction or road service equpment

    So, now the reason is obvious. I'm not into these USC cars, so missed this moment but it looks really weird to see this "barely-legal" connection in such expensive sets. Now I see that it was just screaming for these improved gears.

    Man, you just keep breaking your own records! I never thought that the car can become a plane, especially such a big one!

    Yeah, right... I just supposed that the 8T gear remained "spiky" enough to mesh with "shortened" 24T gear. So, looks just as a better design with less friction/backslash/ABS use and nothing more.

    I meant that if the rumors about 3L diameter are true, TLG just "cuts the corners" by cutting off the gear teeth... For me, it would look like a lazy solving of the oldest problem (why they hadn't done it initially, when designed this gear?).

    Do you mean their "3L+" studs diameter, when they weren't able to fit the 3L-wide places? It sound very interesting if the new one now have 3L-accurate diameter and can be used where the old one couldn't. However it is some kind of cheating for me

    I would double that these tires really are the "grippiest" ones in the given size. Beside this, your CVT is historically known as "friction drive" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friction_drive) as the first and simplest CVT type.

    Looks like a printed - I see no sticker sheet "edges" around the "C with arrows" picture.
  12. I suppose that's because the sleeper is quite "closed" and it's barely possible to see something inside it, behind the seats. another reason is the HOG steering shaft that moved the sleeping bed. Once you motorize truck, you will get rid of the HOG shafts, getting more space for a proper sleeper, but also get a problem of a battery unit location, that commonly goes to the sleeper...
