    [WIP] Lego Super Car

    OK before this all gets out of hand. The roof, suspension and lights are all motorised which I think we can agree is a fairly common to be motorised. The bonnet (hood) will be motorised it is using one small liner actuator and I needed a front function and it looks a bit like a gas leaver.

    Wow there is even more ambitious than me best of luck if you can pull that off I think you will have the holy grail of Technic cars I still have the 8 speed box with manual reverse selector i'm using JB70 pimp up your Bugatti layout with a modified case winch is more compact and a modified gear limiter Alas I do not have a digital file of this car at the moment as I tend to build in Lego then do the digital version from that. Yeah they kinda are a bit rubbish but it was the first Technic model after my dark age, also it's the only unique thing about the 8070 ( I know it's a super car in name only as it's not a flagship but technically the new Lego cars are not either) My plan is to have motorised lights, roof and bonnet, I'm doing the doors differently and I don't think I have space for a cool Bugatti style spoiler.

    Going to do some more tests without the clutch gear which will be fine for the suspension as that can just go round and round. The roof has a complicated timing with hard stop when opened or closed so if it skips gears it throws it all out will see if I can move the clutch so it will protect the roof.

    Darn so effectively i need space for 7 X 5 X 3 as I don't think I can offset the motor this the space I have atm

    [WIP] Lego Super Car

    I have been working on redesigning the forward section to try and eliminate the weak adjustable suspension that was causing the front of the car to drag on the floor and also see if it can power the functions of pop up head lights and bonnet (hood) Sorry for bad photos Can anyone tell me the stud dimensions of an L motor? I think i could fit it to give more power to the suspension, looking at images it seems to be the same roughly as the mindstorms ev3 medium, motor which fits the space I have. so before i splash the cash any assistance with that would be appreciated.

    I really hope some of this is coming in the summer sets. I wonder if there is a 8 tooth bevel gear as well as that would be sweet?

    It was only going to be the functions like lights roof and suspension that would be motorised. There is not enough space for motorised steering and power I'm trying to keep it around the size of 42083 Thanks for the info I have made an account I'll post pictures later
  9. An attempt to distil features from all my favourite Lego Super cars into one. Nearly all of them have steering, suspension, engine and gear box so these are the other features I’m trying to incorporate with a few extras of my own. 8860: Car Chassis – Chassis view 8865: Test Car – Pop up head lights, adjustable seats 8880: Super Car – 4-wheel drive and steering 8448: Super Street Sensation – Automatic doors, Convertible and modular build 8070: Super Car - motorised functions 42056: Porsche 911 GT3 RS – Sequential gear box and Orange! 42083: Bugatti Chiron – 8 speed gearbox Additionally, I’m trying to add adjustable ride height More images https://bricksafe.com/pages/Cardboy/super-car-mrk-3 It is based loosely on the 42083 floor-plan as the gear box and shifter are nicely placed and allowed a route for the 4 wheel steering. I used jb70’s layout for the gear box (in the pimp my Bugatti thread) as I have never been good with ratios but heavily modified the casing and redesigned the gear limiter Current issues are that the adjustable ride height. I put in a clutch gear to stop damage but far too much torque is needed to lift the suspension. do I just go for a manual lift? If I do that should I remove the motors all together? It would make the whole model lighter then just manually control all the functions. Then should i make the front and rear adjustments independent then you could change the rake of the car too?

    Yeah almost like its crying out for anther competition version as it's a bit under-baked.

    looking at the pic and the old 9398 they look very close in design I would guess only front wheel steering and a live axle design

    42099 is calling to me :D even more so if the colour scheme from the pic is the final one. Beefed up suspension and joints, black wheel arches a good amount of Control+ (hope one motor is a servo) and black rims as I seem to only have grey in that size. Maybe some other surprises (fingers crossed) The control+ Battery box is it around the same size as the power functions? I have a feeling it's larger. Also the motors do we think they will be studs as well or pure pin connections?

    AA batteries are a pain but I think there are a few reasons Lego went for them. 1 Available everywhere so good for markets outside of USA / Eurpoe 2 Lion batteries don't last for ever and would need replacing most small Lithium batteries are custom made and so replacing them in the future could be a problem, Lego would need to supply them and that's against their ethos of it always being compatible. 3 Lithium can go boom also some countries don't like you even shipping them (Lego does not want a law suite of a kid losing a finger) Side note, the crawler will it have a servo motor or will the return to centre be done by the app?

    The new hubs are they 23801 or 92908 size?

    I hope there is also a physical controller for the motors using a touch screen really does not give you much fine control. Also as the video looks a bit washed out is it dark or light grey?
