  1. Doug, I have made my own improvement to your already wonderful train car. When I updated to the L motor I found 2 problems. the first is that the gear on the motor tried to force itself away from the driven gear due to the increase in torque. I have solved this with the use of a 99773 triangular lift arm and now for my second problem is the (2) 15L lift arms for the frame are wanting to spread apart causing the gears on the final drive to slip. I am also working on this but have not got it resolved yet. Sorry for the poor pictures but have been too busy to do it correctly.

    [GBC] Akiyuki Ball Factory

    I'm on it already!! Thanks Berthi. By the way I have some improvements to the Large motor version of the train car I will be submitting as soon as a Bricklink order arrives.

    Wow! Just Wow. I would love to add this to my collection but am not sharp enough to build this one without instructions. Congrats Berthil!

    Thanks, I don't usually go directly to Lego since they seem to be out of stock on a lot of items. I just did purchase them

    [GBC] Akiyuki Ball Factory

    Those DBG 1x16 are really not to available in the USA without many trips to Bricklink. I have a huge amount of technic models in another room and realized that the Bucket Wheel Excavator "42055" has about 75 of the 1x15 DBG studless beams so I may try to incorporate as much of that as possible to keep cost down. I realize the bricks are stronger than beams so it may be a combination of both. No videos yet but a small portion of what I have built has consumed my billiards table.

    Sorry, forgot to use the quote button. "Sounds good. Any videos or your modules? My build will be different from the first build, I will use more studless. Although I will be using 16L DBG technic bricks as much as possible as I have many from a Lugbulk. Pictures soon as promised.

    [GBC] Akiyuki Ball Factory

    I too like many others decided the Ball Factory would be my first GBC build. I wish it hadn't been because after countless hours of re-timing and fixing axles that have slipped out of connectors etc. I gave up GBC for a couple years. Now I'm back BIGLY and have almost 25 of the largest modules I can find directions for done. I agree with Berthil that this module needs to be off of the 32x32 plates and put together on a studless frame so it is more durable and can be moved. If anyone is serious about doing this I would like to help. I still have most of the parts from my first build but will obviously need a few more visits to Bricklink.

    [GBC] Akiyuki project (EV3)(NXT)

    Hello I am new to your forum but was so amazed by the Fast Ball Sorter by Akiyuki that I though I would try to build it. The only problem I have right now is that the EV3 program that is supplied here is not in English and very difficult for me to comprehend. Does anyone have a EV3 program in English? I will be using the medium PF motor for the spiral lift
