    This is so, so cool. I have so many questions about this: 1. Did they use the actual c+ app? They are shown looking at computer screens. 2. If it was the app: was it vanilla or did they introduce special changes (like: different engine setup and different amount of angular offset for keeping the modelling of timing and angles work). 3. That's more than Bluetooth range, isn't it? 4. I'm going to bet there was a safety driver inside the cabin at all times, riiiiight? 5. How long since inception to realising? 6. How much time were they given by the Liebherr's owner. 7. Lego only calls out sariel: was he the only afol involved? Who are the other people on the clip?

    I like how we already get (a form of) confirmation that 2020 2H will include an "Ultimate" with a specific number. I don't recall this specific news a full year before the launch.

    In the YouTube video Markus points at them briefly. My impression was they looked printed (they also didn't move or wiggle), so my take is: decorative only.

    The way I read the question, it was about why 1 stud specifically. It would seem this should depend on some combination of the unsprung weight and the force&count of the springs.

    ... or another version of brick-built turntable à-la RTC. The cited reason then was because of the model's size and weight, the usual turntables didn't make it. Can't make out anything from the video though.

    Sooo, did we learn what's the colour of the SUV? The only two pieces of information that I saw so far was "can't remember" (which does tell you something) and... uhm... the "flamingo" codename. Any confirmed info?

    Is it? It offers working steering wheel in exchange for the bombastic trunk opening. Or did I get it wrong?

    Coming back to the pullbacks: I'm wondering if the absurdly f1 shape of the police car can be explained by it acting as a ramp for the getaway car?

    I'm almost certain it's not the goal there. It's rather to appeal to kids looking for any RC toy and introduce them to Lego technic. I'd expect this will become a standard base to cover in future too, similarly to "cheap, impulse buy" like the hook loader, "pair of pullbacks" and the flagships.

    My guess: the previous racer was successful and this is an attempt to repeat that (also: it enables racing between the two different models which I'm personally looking forward to). I guess you know it but for explicitness: the tracked RC cars are easier to steer with only vertical levers (the left-right meaning doesn't change when the car is going towards you).

    That did the trick. Thanks!

    Anything more specific? All that I could find just scrolled through text in one way or another.

    I see that there are some rules about sending PMs. I'm also not allowed to do that ("you have 0 PMs left"). I couldn't find any info on this in pinned threads. Can I get the pointer to some instructions on what these rules are?
  14. Thank you Doug, Jim and Allan: this worked beautifully!
