  1. Yeah, as I mentioned, it does interfere with the gears, so need to figure that out.
  2. I really enjoy the spirit of TC18, so it works well for inspiration. Well, I hope this project satisfies you! Update: I found another, stronger, system for the front suspension. This takes advantage of tolerances in parts to allow for enough suspension travel. Realistically, I only need 0.3-0.5 studs of travel. I tried it out in real life, and this works: Hard to see from this angle, so here's the backside. You can see the driveshaft right between the two swingarms. My only problem now is to transfer the power from the front driveshaft without having interference like there is in the gears. Again, more to be had for another update. I don't have much time to work on these, so it will probably be very slow progress until college is over.
  3. Oh yeah, there's definitely some interesting features to be had there. The big advantage for me is that it's all browser-based, so I can build anywhere I go. I hear what you're saying, but I'm having a hard time visualizing how it would fit in this scale. I plan on using these fenders, so there might be room for a strut in the fender. The big issue is that only a half-stud connection is welcome inside the wheel. I'll try some prototyping though and see what I can find.
  4. Hey guys, Long time no see I've started working on another supercar that fits the TC18 ruleset. I love the size constraints that are used here and keep going back to them as a starting point for my brainstorms. As of now, I have only started work digitally on this model. There's a couple reasons for this, and they also happen to be why I haven't built in almost two years First off, let me detail the features. - AWD system - Independent suspension on all corners - Flat-six engine - Steering on front axle (wish I could do all, but will not fit size constraints.) - Complete bodywork - 15W x 16H x 41L (actual dimensions should be 15W x 11H x 35L) You can find the Mecabricks file here: https://mecabricks.com/en/models/zOjoWDgoj6Z The rear suspension is based off the suspension from my F1: The shared driveshaft is what makes this suspension possible. Here, the front suspension is giving me grief. I'm stumped on how I will attach the swingarms. Right now, the configuration collides with the bevel gears. I'm thinking I might have to do two separate driveshafts. But it's a start! I'm hoping that posting here will help motivate me to finish this. I really want to see it on the shelf beside my F1. Also, I am well open to feedback. I already know I want to attach the rear suspension more securely, but I'll deal with that after the front suspension. Letsbuild
  5. I prefer the second design, I feel like it breaks up the monotony of beam stacking on the rest of the hood. This model is coming along awesome! I don't build right now (dark ages) but I think this will be a good model to get me back into things after college!
  6. I'm happy to hear that! Yeah, the front is kind of weak, and I had some time spent to fine-tune which rubber bands to use. Ideally, I would have the rear hubs 3D-printed as they are weak indeed. I tried out a few options, but nothing fit the width of the car *and* kept drive. I'm happy the looks were good enough for you heh
  7. Yes, I agree that these aren't "instructions" as much as they're a guide. I don't think Mecabricks has a system for auto-generating instructions, but seeing as there's so little interest I didn't bother putting the effort into hand-making the instructions. How are you finding the suspension? Thank you! You may be disappointed to hear that this is the finished product..
  8. Wow @Qukie that looks awesome! I can't wait to see it next to the Senna, I think it'll look pretty cool. I notice your creativity with the front splitter, looks good! How easy did you find the build process to be?
  9. @Qukie, no worries man, I will wait patiently for any updates! Are you planning on building it in any other colours?
  10. @Qukie Did you ever end up building the car?
  11. Thank you for your patience, I took longer than I was expecting. Please take pictures of the model once you build it, I can't wait to see!
  12. MOC has been approved! https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-48903/flyboy0115/mclaren-f1-gtr/#comments
  13. Thank you all for your patience, it's been over two months since I last touched this project (holy moly time flies. so much has changed in my life). I've finally finished the 3D model: https://mecabricks.com/en/models/PkaJ6z0gaxM The MOC is currently waiting to be approved on Rebrickable, so I'll post a link once that's set. Thank you everyone for your support, I hope you enjoy the model. if you have any questions, ask them here or on rebrickable and I'll do my best to respond.
  14. I remember someone made a review of this. I forget his name, but he's a pretty prolific builder. It's on youtube, shouldn't be hard to find.
