  1. Lego Black Aura Supercar

    Nice MOC.. Excellent use of tight space
  2. Ropa Maus 5 Sugarbeet Loader

    Amazing.. Would like to see a video in action if you have something...
  3. Another video added to OP.
  4. Thx.. If you follow the link, you will see other videos including an outside one.
  5. So.. I original posted about this here and here, but thought I would start a new thread as BluCrawler's gone through a number of revisions. Again, credit to PunkTacoNYC for his original build - Chilly Crawler (for which this started as). I've been tracking revisions and experiences as I go through iterations. Im pretty happy with where I am at now. Still not 100% on the steering approach, but I've noted details about ideas for a future version of BTBox. As it stands now, this thing is very solid and pretty much climbs anything: PlastiBots - BluCrawler
  6. 42070 is back on Costco.ca for 259 CAD. Didn't last long last time, so grab it if interested.
  7. I managed to snag a 42070 at Costco.ca for $260 CAD. Ordered Thurs, got it next day. Now they are gone... Seems like it was only up this past week. Steal of a price given all other stores were selling for $370 CAD
  8. Saw that yesterday.. Took the plunge on the 42070 despite the not-so-hot reviews. I figure this price makes the value more reasonable. Undecided if I'll keep it shelved as a collectors item, or build it.. Just wish Costco would add the Porsche to their inventory! For others, the Class (42054) has been at $169 for a few weeks now. Back in Aug, then dropped it to $159 and I managed to grab a unit before the price bumped back to $169. Great set at a great price. Edit: Dont forget that Walmart.ca has an AdMatch policy, so you should be able to get the price matched. Keep in mind Costco shipping is included!
  9. Nice work. Would like to see some closeup pics of the suspension linkage. Like the steering approach with the actuator too.
  10. Links are not working
  11. You can build the original Chili Crawler (see OP). Unfortunately time is tight these days for me to create instructions. Once I have it complete, I'll post close-up pics. I know it's not ideal. If I get time, I may take a stab at instructions for the front unit (back is a mirror img of it). FYI - not sure if you are referring to my BluCrawler, but to clarify, I don't yet have the option to switch from FWD to AWD. If I get time to make a V2 of my BTBox with 4 ports, I'll then be able to do that.. Pretty sure you can already do this with SBrick though..
  12. Re the wishbone pieces.. Not quite.. If you read my write-up, I noted that although the movement is more limited than the ball joint approach, there is still side-to-side movement. I did this by allowing the thinner side to slide along the axle. The inherent play between a 1/2 wide unit and an axle + it's ability to slide along the axle provides enough play that I am satisfied. If you look closely at the pics above, you can see this spacing. Notice the beige axles are allowed to side. It sure beats the prior ball connectors coming apart during stressful twisted climbs.
