  1. Good News, glad to hear we are getting another SC car this year. I always suspected they might do something like this since this year's wave was smaller than usual. Hopefully it looks pretty good, still I guess it doesn't matter, I will get it anyway.

    [Help] Crawler suspension.

    You should check out some of PunkTacoNYC's crawlers, here on these forums. They have excellent suspension characteristics and he would probably be glad to help you out.

    Well the more we learn about this fantastic set, the more I realize, it's not for me. I wish it was but it just isn't.
  4. Where's the bean bag chair? I think it's a nice little scene, takes me back for sure, thanks for sharing.

    I also would suggest getting a ballpark figure on cost, as the size and features you would like, will make this truck very expensive, in my opinion anyway. I would hate to see someone put forth all that effort and expense just to have the customer drop dead when seeing the price tag. Parts alone should prove to be rather costly, then the time and effort which is rarely properly compensated for. Thankfully most builders are quite fair when it comes to time invested.
  6. Just finished it myself, thought it was a pretty solid set. Good figures great parts, I really liked getting all those trans clear blue pieces, also some of those tan pieces, most notably the corner 1x1 arch pieces. Thought the build was pretty good and even the price seems fair, may even pick up a second set on discount. Thanks for another great review and I agree with most of your opinions as well. Great set even if your not a fan, many excellent parts.

    Fixing loose clutching bricks

    I recently acquired around 3000 LEGO elements and during the course of cleaning, which included soaking in very hot, soapy, tap water, I noticed an unintended consequence. The clutch power of all the bricks was greatly increased from what it was before cleaning and even though some of them were quite dirty, most were not bad at all. So I would say it's worth a shot, if your bricks are not clutch worthy.

    LEGO Creator 2019 - Rumors, Discussion, and Speculation

    Not intended for PF use but I am sure you could rig something up, obviously you would need to gear it down.

    [MOC] "VOODOO" Custom Lowrider

    For a fact, unless of course you have buggy motors and a Buwhizz. Which I cannot really afford at this time.

    LEGO Speed Champions - Wishlists and Future Speculation

    Yes I would love a two car set with that Trans Am in it, with an old school cop car and hell why not a semi for it too. Of course everyone would complain about how expensive it is and all they want is just the Trans Am.

    [MOC] "VOODOO" Custom Lowrider

    Agreed, I am trying to build a simple moc and before I even get halfway through it I am thinking about transmissions, weighted flywheels and a trigger launch system. I really need to first get a working prototype and then think about those things. That is why on my first post I told the OP it looked nice and simple and should consider adding changes later. Still say it's nice looking car, he did a good job and should only add features if he feels like it. It is Technic and people like to see features, since that is what it is all about. My problem is I envision so many features during the build process I end up never completing the MOC.

    Technic 2H 2019 sets revealed at BrickCan 2019

    Confused as to why we need another thread to discuss the 2019 sets. I am glad you were able to see them and I am grateful for any insight you can provide. It just seems like now we are getting a lot of double posting. Somebody reads this thread and then turns around and posts it in the other thread. Please don't be offended but it is a bit confusing, to me anyway.
  13. Ha, why so angry? I think it would benefit from some lower gearing, it is quite responsive, that driver needs to wear HANS device.
  14. I was going to suggest looking at that set as well, really liked that cart actually bought two of them. It was nice getting a two speed transmission in such a small set and honestly I don't understand why they don't do that more often. I also agree that rear portion is too wide almost comically so. I think that whole front steering wheel section sticks up too high, steering wheel appears to be in drivers face and reduce the angle a bit maybe.

    MOC: Black Car

    To be honest this thing is hideous, I think it needs different tires, maybe look at Speed Champions tires. Think you need to fill in that gap on the side under the windshield piece. That nose just sticks out too far and the back is too big and bulky. Maybe try to add some curves as well in the fender area and in the back. I really think it would benefit from a major overhaul and don't really like any aspect of it. You could actually pick a real car you like and base your version off that.
