    That set kind of reminds me of the Atlas from Mech Warrior Online. You could easily build something similar but different colors and then just add guns. EDIT:
  2. Just FYI. It's Ponsse. Not ponesse.

    The project is slowly but surely crawling forward.. Currently i'm waiting for some T beams and hard springs.. But while we wait: This is the new and improved chassis.. It's going to be 2 studs wider and much much longer.. The gearing is currently 1:1 so it's going to be very peppy.. I might convert it back to 3:1 to make it slow again after i get to test the fast mode first..

    The tank chassis got a small overhaul and the bogies got completely redesigned. Here is my new bogie design. With hard springs, they can handle the weight of the tank. The image shows all parts used. I purposefully made it a modular design so it's easy to install and move on a long beam. Feel free to copy this design! I call this the: "Mechbuild's modular bogie"

    Respectful to the old classic technic style. Well done!

    I'm thinking about making a LDD file of this tank.. Would anybody want instructions on this once it's finished? Please comment! EDIT: Still trying to figure out a smart way how to attach the battery... At this stage, the battery is mounted in a way that you need to disassemble the tank to change the batteries.. I need to figure out a solution so the battery will fit and not sacrifice the looks of the tank.

    IR remote mocs

    Thank you very much for sharing! EDIT: Has anybody ever tried making the controller more ergonomic?

    IR remote mocs

    Has anybody made any custom IR remotes for their mocs? Joysticks and clever tricks.. Please share in this thread! Here is my simple grip moc for a basic skid steer tank: It's much better to hold than the remote just by itself.

    A little bit of progress has been made. Now the tracks are assembled and the tank frame is taking shape! However, i'm facing a few problems.. 1. I still don't have those L motors.. Since they're part of the frame, i can't really continue without them. 2. Battery fitment is going to be a nightmare since the battery will be very close to the front upper wheels.. 3. The middle bogie basically floats
  12. Does anybody have any extra L motors to sell for cheap? Looking for two L motors. (Need shipping to finland.) We don't have any lego shops in my city that sell just the motor.
  13. It's a nice and compact solution. However, i don't think the teeth are very durable when the bucket has some weight added to it.. Being that it's only a half bush thickness and held on by a cross axle stud.

    The most technical technic set?

    I agree with Erik and nerdsforprez. Following instructions is not challenging. Why would you look for a challenge in a book of solution? Create your own challenge and build a moc. Do as i do, figure out what you want to do at that given time.. Think of ways to make it more complicated. Try to make it as small as possible.. Now that's challenging. But the payoff is huge when you manage to figure out a simple, yet effective solution.

    Update! Added driving sprockets with gearbox in the middle. Both sprockets are clutched (For now.. Might swap to 24 teeth gears if the clutches slip all the time) There is room for two L motors and a battery in the middle. The gearing is setup to 3:1. Now i'm just waiting for those two L motors and i can continue the build!
