  1. Lexus GX EV3

    @Horace T I like to use EV3 in my builds because I came from the Mindstorms community.
  2. Lexus GX EV3

    Thanks for the responses! But I'm fine with the way it looks. It's my first Technic MOC after all. I know it does look like a G-wagen, but I just wanted to give this build the body-on-frame style that the real GX has.
  3. Lexus GX EV3

    Here's a cool wallpaper I made.
  4. "The Pursuit of Perfection" - slogan of the Lexus brand. I'm now back with my greatest Lego creation ever. A 2010 Lexus GX 460 with EV3. It's a replica of my Dad's car, but this one's in gray with black interior. I made it as much as I could to the real car, thanks to pieces from the Arocs and Porsche set. Features Sariel's 4-speed sequential gearbox controlled by a medium motor All-wheel-drive Independent suspension Rack-and-pinion steering Fake V8 engine Six seats (could not fit a seventh one) with the rear four being foldable Opening side doors, trunk door, and hood. Detailed interior The gearbox and the two differentials in the car like to click while moving (especially on rough terrain) around, but the result was a car that was heavy, slow, but also makes lots of torque. I'm very happy with how this car came out and I couldn't have done it without all of the helpful people on the Lego community and EuroBricks. Thanks especially to my good friend TheMindGarage for never making me give up. Now I can officially call myself a true master builder. Check out this build on my EV3 community account too for more photos and information about it. I would love to make a YouTube video soon about the features of the GX EV3 and footage of me taking this build on some dirt trails in a park. I also want to take a picture of this right next to my Dad's actual car. So please follow this post to check out some stuff I might upload in the future! To finish this post, here's a collages with photos of the GX EV3.
  5. FORD GT

    I like making machines too with EV3, and I never thought about making a construction crane before, but it would seem pretty fun.
  6. FORD GT

    @jorgeopesi I actually have that exact Maisto die cast car. It's very cool, you should buy it! @Lox Lego The LC is going to have the Porsche Wheels. It's going to be pretty big, but I can make it happen.
  7. FORD GT

    Thanks, but I found something else that I wanted to build with EV3 instead. An orange 2018 Lexus LC. I just finished the GX (posting it soon) and creating another Lexus (the LC 500 (or LC 500h) on lots of the new Lexus commercials) would be pretty cool. It makes 471 horsepower and goes to 0-60 in 4.4 seconds. Too bad I can't replicate its 10-speed gearbox, so I wanted to add a paddle-shift 6-speed. I have to build the Porsche 911 GT3 RS set first. That's after a few months when I did everything I wanted to do with the GX, and months later after that I'll tear apart the Porsche set to build the LC somewhere in early 2018. I hope that's enough time before somebody else builds one. I'm pretty excited! I see that you had a bit of trouble replicating the headlights. It still looks cool, though.
  8. FORD GT

    This is amazing! It looks like the actual car! ... Okay, I'm gonna admit this. I wanted to build an orange Ford GT as well really badly before anyone else did. But with Mindstorms. I guess I got my hopes up too much. No offense though, your car looks way better than what mine would look like. Should I still build one like yours or make a different (orange) supercar?
  9. BMW vision M power

    Awesome! The exterior and interior is just perfect! It's sad that it doesn't move in third gear though. If you're having trouble with gearboxes like I did, use Sariel's 4-speed compact sequential. With a few modifications, the gearbox can be put in pretty much anything. You get to see it in action when my GX EV3 project gets posted pretty soon (it took me over 8 months to build it as well xD).
  10. I did that, but something bad happened to something in the gearbox. One of the rods pushed out so I torn the body apart and pushed it back in and made it stay with a peg and now the car works with the program perfectly. Thanks very much for the help!
  11. @TheMindGarage What should I change in my program to get the performance to be the best it can?
  12. Not really, but I found out that the motors in my GX EV3 peform better in IR Control mode than how they do in my program, and I believe that it is because the motor power is different. Each block in the EV3 programming software that moves the motors has a digit for how much power each motor should have. I'm wondering what this digit is in IR Control mode, because the motors act much better in this mode than how the do in the program. If anyone here knows the power of the motors when the EV3 brick is in this mode, please reply as soon as possible. It would be very appreciated.
  13. @Didumos69 Thanks for the advice, but I already fixed the issue. I had to switch the black gears as seen here. Before After The gearbox I used for this entire build is Sariel's 4-speed, which I highly recommend using because it's compact, lightweight, and durable. I just need to know which speed is which and change the programming for the EV3 brick a slight bit. Thanks for the help!
  14. I didn't expect this to get so much replies overnight, and I'm pretty overwhelmed by all of them. I'm going to try PorkyMonster's idea first before the others, and then maybe Void_S as well. I also can't replace the 8t gears. Thanks for the replies!
  15. I'm back with one last issue in my GX EV3 build. I just got done finishing the doors, side panels, rear trunk door, hood, and some part of the roof. But the vehicle was so heavy that when I drove it around, it kept on doing the same thing. The diffs were clicking and the car had very much difficulty moving. Here is a picture of the bottom of the vehicle. Most of the clicking seems to be coming from the rear diff when I move the wheels by hand. I can either do two things. 1. Reinforce the rear diff somehow. 2. Improve it's off-road performance and stop the clicking somewhat by replacing the diffs with knob gears. But this will come at the cost of independent moving between the wheels. What should I do? Please give me the best response you can so the clicking will stop and I could finally take this AWD machine through some rough terrain like a real SUV. I really appreciate any advice.
