  1. IIRC, they are exactly the same, with the same problem... There are in my opinion three solutions : Change the hub for custom brick build ones. Make a bad steering geometry. Accept the problem
  2. Will Buwizz motor work with Buwizz 2.0 ? Or is Buwizz 3.0 better for them, because with buggy motors and Buwizz 2.0 I experiment a lot of power cuts. Will Buwizz motor remove this issue with Buwizz 2.0 ? Or is the issue linked to Buwizz 2.0 and therefore will persist with Buwizz motor ?
  3. It's not a set… You can buy instructions on Rebrickable.com : https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-38243/Toucanx/subaru-wrx-sti/#details BUT You have to buy parts on your own, for example on Bricklink/Brickowl etc…
  4. After 9 month of work, I present the completed version of my latest Moc, a 2019 Subaru WRX STI It features : AWD, with lockable central differential 6+R Sequential gearbox Fornt McPherson Suspension Rear double wishbone suspension, with anti-roll bar Working fake boxer engine Opening doors (front one with handle) Opening hood (or bonnet) Opening trunk Interior with detailed dashboard Decorated engine bay Render of the gearbox : Full driveline The belly shot The interior, with some detail, such as aerations. Engine bay, made to look as close as possible to the real one : It can also be built in white, with some minor adjustments. I also created Instructions for it. The instructions are made for the black one, but can, with minor adjustment be used for the white one. The instructions are 1218 pages long, handmade with Stud.io 2.0. You can download a sample here. Or look down here. You can Buy the instructions on Rebrickable. https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-38243/Toucanx/subaru-wrx-sti/#comments And of course a video : I Hope you like it. If you have any question, don't hesitate, I will try to answer quickly. After this line, starts the WIP thread. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Hi everyone, It's been a long time since I haven't posted on this forum, but today I would like to share a new project that I have started not so long ago. It's a Subaru Impreza WRX STI car that I will make. The list of what I will put in the car is the following : Awd Boxer 4 engine McPherson suspension for the front wheels Indépendant double whisbone for the rear wheels Lockable central differential 5 speed sequential gearbox I searched a bit for 5-speed sequential gearbox but I didn't found any. So I took a 4-speed gearbox design by @Rage_Hobbit (found there) and I added a 5th speed. Here is the result : You can download the .lfx. Note that you are supposed to place rubber band linking the orange pieces to the black one under the blue triangle. I have already made the boxer engine and most of the chassis. It will use these wheels : It's the one that are used in 42077 rally car. However I ran in a problem, it seems that the gearbox can not support the force involved in the transmission. The gears do a lot of skipping noises (doesn't sound healthy for the pieces). So I wanted to know if anyone knew a reliable 5-speed sequential gearbox / a 5+r sequential gearbox. That's it for today. More updates coming soon.
  5. One interesting thing to know is the amount of Mocs that are produced in each subform, and to see the proportions of Mocs that get front-paged…

    Orange. Flex tubes in orange, is that a new color for these types of parts ?

    42121 Hydraulic Excavator

    Cute little set, It reminds me of this one : As it was one of my first technic set, I might get this one :)
  8. It seems that this part is back in blue : https://rebrickable.com/parts/32034/technic-axle-and-pin-connector-angled-2-180/ But so much stickers…

    I like the way you did the front wheels on the black one. However, I'm not sure about the utility of the HOG, as there is a pullback, but it's a great addition nontheless, considering the steering wheel is working.
  10. https://rebrickable.com/parts/3957a/antenna-1-x-4-with-rounded-top/ (A or B version, it's not important) https://rebrickable.com/parts/48729b/bar-1l-with-clip-cut-edges-and-one-side-hole/ (A or B version, it's not important) https://rebrickable.com/parts/30377/arm-mechanical-battle-droid/ https://rebrickable.com/parts/44676/flag-2-x-2-trapezoid/ https://rebrickable.com/parts/15100/technic-pin-connector-hub-with-1-pin-with-friction-ridges-lengthwise/ https://rebrickable.com/parts/61184/technic-pin-12-with-2l-bar-extension/ One of each part per side, so for both sides you need two of each.
  11. Digital picture : The whole assembly, connected. Just the assembly. Orange parts need to be in bodywork color, grey ones aren't visible. In the car The assembly is symmetrical on the other side. You might need to find the right angles. I hope it might help you.
  12. The instructions contains : The 6 speed gearbox The fake boxer engine. The steps for the black version The instructions lacks : A small modification to the C pillar, using 6 parts on each side (I can add a picture if you need) I didn't made the instructions for white version. You can mainly swap every black part with white one. There are some restrictions thought. I have a part list, and a digital file for the white version, but no instructions. Some parts exists in black, but I changed some of them because it was way too expensive. I tried to keep the amount of old parts to the minimum. Some rare/expensive parts in white includes : 2x 11L soft axle in white 6x Pin Connector Perpendicular Double 3L in white 4x Pin 3L with Friction Ridges Lengthwise and Stop Bush in white 4x Pole Reverser Handle / Axle Connector in white Part list for the white one : https://bricksafe.com/files/Touc4nx/subaru-impreza-wrx-sti/rebrickable_parts_subaru-sti-white.csv And as @LvdH said, using the land rover Rims looks quite good. (On my built version, it's still these one) And Concerning stickers, I never made any, and I never searched for any.
  13. WoW, just wow that's insane ! And you call that "little project"
  14. Thank you, I guess I will try to build it to understand it ;) Btw, super strong roof.

    Technic 2021 Set Discussion

    I hope the mudguard aren't printed... But they never had sticker on it so my hopes are low
  17. Oh I'm interested to see how it works, I guess I will have to wait until the video comes ;)
  18. What does that mean ? Is there an autoclutch ?

    Ideas for experienced builders.

    That has to be an April fools. But curiously, I'm tempted to build it I just can't find how many wheels are steered

    Technic 2021 Set Discussion

    Seeing so many car, one part of me wishes that Lego finally makes some correct suspension (including caster, camber and maybe toe...) It would make the model more accurate, and a bit more interesting. I also hope that they would release smaller suspension parts, allowing some model, in the scale of the corvette, to have suspension. But I won't put my hopes too high, as I know that even on +18 sets like the Chiron or the Sian, they didn't made a "realistic" suspension setup. Other than that, the monster trucks might be interesting.

    Uses for the 7X11 Liftarm Frame

    Number two might be useful, I have to see if placing a Buwizz unit here is possible.
  22. okay, how long should I expect the battery to blink ? Overload protection probably kicked in, as I was running two RC motors with direct coupling.
  23. I'm having exactly the same problem. Is there a known way to fix it ? Or do I have to contact the BuWizz team ? (I can't use the contact form, as I can't find my order numbers :/)
