    Adjustable suspension

    @chlego Great to hear you made it work! I was wondering why your setup gave up in the lowered position (not to cause confusion, car would be in the highered position) and figured out it was because in my setup I have a 7x11 frame underneath the lower wishbone, naturaly decreasing the range of motion of the wishbones. The result is that the shock aborber is slightly precompressed and in a 'more horizontal' position so the direction of the force when compressing the shocks is now fully clockwise. If you use a similar setup you won't need the worm gear anymore to handle the load.

    Adjustable suspension

    Hi @chlego , firstly welocme to EB! You are not the first to have troubles with an adjustable suspension setup. The key of a working setup is that the shock absorber mount stays in place when compressing the suspension whilst you want to be able to move it with for instance a knob too. A worm gear setup like you mentioned is definitely possible, it has been done before in quite a few mocs. The downside of such setup is that axles will get twisted slightly and usually there is a lot of backlash too. I prefer a setup with is either fully lowered or highered (so it does not allow little adjustments) in which all stress is put on the chassis like @MinusAndy mentioned. I am using a setup like that in my current wip and it works really well. The direction of the force on the pullies is the oposite if the suspension is lowered compared to when the suspension is highered. I hope it's useful.
  3. They are cut rigid hoses. We already cut them accros so why don’t them it lengthwise? The same trick was used to get the accents on the diffuser edges
  4. @Aman Thanks for sharing, looping forward to the complete car. Recently Adam Hargus finished it in red too for those considering to build it in red.
  5. Thanks for sharing this brilliant gearbox! I am considering to use it in my current wip but I would have to modify it so a external axle for a different function can pass trough the middle 11x15 frame. Looks challenging considering how dense it is. Well done!
  6. You can send a request to the designer via the site to make them. pla From my experience the assembly can handle quite a bit of stress. Compressing the suspension on a 1:8 scale car for example. The pins probably can't take the load of a RC car but it shouldn't be a problem if you glue the pins to the spokes.
  7. A set of wheels costs 60 euros, Centenario wheels being an exception as it consists of three parts that need to be individually printed. For obvious reasons the 3D files won't be sold. I am getting tired of the never ending IP discussions on this forum so I won't get into it.
  8. Ever since the arrival of the UCS sets there has been an increased demand for custom authentic 3D printed Lego rims to bring the looks of a MOC (or set) to a new level. This inspired some AFOLs including me to create an online store making it possible for everyone to get their hands on some spectacular rim replications of a large variety of Cars plus being able to request a new rim design. All credits go to Felipe Evangelista (Creator of the website and the printer/shipper of the rim store), Daniel Meursing (Creator of the rim designs in Autodesk fusion 360). Also, many thanks to Charbel Imad for the fantastic introduction video. Nearly all rims consist of two 3D printed parts: the rim base and spokes. They snap perfectly together just like original Lego parts. Three ¾ pins snap together with the spokes. Now the assembly is identical to the Bugatti Chiron and Lamborghini Sian rims. Most of the spokes even have a stud in the centre to put on a round tile with a car brand. The rim base and spokes can be ordered separately so when you want a new design you only have to order spokes as you can use the same rim base from the previous assembly. 15 unique designs are currently being offered from 8 different brands and many more are being created as we speak. A few have been shown before in MOCs like Dugald’s Koenigsegg Regera and my Lamborghini Centenario. The rims from the Lamborghini Sian set are available too. Feel free to check out the website and the available rim designs here: https://technic-rims.com/ We hope the community finds it useful! Have a nice day!
  9. I would love to see more pictures of this moc. @Unique11 You have to upload your pictures on site like bricksafe.com and copy and paste the URL of a picture here. The link will embed automatically.
  10. Yes I am. For those still deciding what colour to build it in, hopefully this helps
  11. I ordered an extra sheet to add extra accents to the front and the vents where here and there I had to cut some stickers. If you contact Jaap you can request a sheet of yellow accents (or any other colour). If you still want to do it differently I recommend dipping the edge of the panels in a thin layer of spay paint. I tried that and it worked really well. I am really looking forward to seeing your yellow version!
  12. Not on a 1:8 scale car but on a much smaller one. I had issues with micro leaks in the cylinders. Within two minutes after pressurizing all pressure was lost gone.
  13. You have not broken the mini LA during the tests. It can't deal with extreme forces. I have been expirimenting with adjustable suspension too lately and I personally don't like a worm screw setup as they will cause a lot of play in the setup and cause axles to twist slightly. I tested this on a 1:8 scale chassis which seems a larger scale then you are working in. If it really rarely pops I think you should stick with your current design and change the geometry like Aerolight sugested. The advantage of your setup is that you did not use two seperate mini LAs for each axle individually which could cause the LAs to go out of sync if only one would pop.
  14. Of course it depends on where you live but I think it's more like $250-300. You can also buy second hand Chiron to save some money.
  15. I would love to see a yellow one! You can buy most panels in other colours on aliexpress. Otherwise you should use yellow spraypaint and a primer. (if you are not a purist) Somone else already did it. It required a few minor mods. He also customized the interior to match the colours of the printed patern on the arches.
