  1. Loved the game! Love the project!
  2. Any luck with narrowing the wheelbase maybe? I just built it 2 days ago and that was my first thing planned for rework. Also, I can't seem to find narrower wheels that would fit the scale. Not sure if anyone has suggestions? Btw the MOC is really cool
  3. This is a cute build - my first thought when I saw it was actually the 500

    Technic Clones

    Isn't discussing a non-lego product (apart from the allowed buwizz 3rd party tires and such) not allowed on this forum?
  5. This TC idea sounds very interesting! Will be much more complicated than the previous ones I participated in but I am already excited about the challenge! How am I going to focus at work for the rest of the day?! On the weight/part count limit, need to take in consideration the different battery options (rechargeable weights less than 6x battery box). Also would it be allowed to have the power supply being outside of the MOC and connected via cables? Just thinking if I didn't manage to locate the box on the bottom, would produce extra effort on the mechanisms to move things around
  6. I checked all page of voting post I hope I can get any votes. ------Reviewed all votes------- Damn... What's the problem in my entry??? I am not serious on this one - the drive from the contest that results in ton of fun building the entry is all that I need
  7. 22: 10 38: 6 36: 4 24: 3 11: 2 4: 1 That was fun again!
  8. 32. 8858 Rebel Rocker! Original set: 8858 Rebel Wrecker Discussion topic: Features: Same as the original - Front / rear suspension - HOG steering - Fake engine connected to rear axle - Winch Pictures:
  9. I've realized this contest is the perfect opportunity for a nostalgia trip - I will attempt to re-build the one and only - 8858 Rebel Wrecker - my childhood dream which I was only able to realize after many years and dark ages. Just started - not sure where this will go but it's fun!
  10. Added seats and winch This time with 81.6 x 38R tires but now they are too big. I am going to stay with the original wheels - none other just look as good for me
  11. Well, these are studless elements even though used in the original model. There is no studfull parts used apart from the engine blocks in the MOC. I see your point but that was simply my approach to the build (and hopefully in line with the rules of the contest)
  12. So I dont know which wheel version to decide on and need your help. Vote which of the 4 options is the best! 1) Original (balloon tire and original rim) 2) 68.7 x 34R tire + original rim flipped 3) balloon tire + 32020 rim https://rebrickable.com/parts/32020/wheel-432-x-18-with-extended-axle-stem/ 4) 68.7 x 34R tire + 32020 rim (these dont fit well and need to centre its position for the picture)
  13. At first I was hesitating with using these type of pieces due to the theme of the contest but I have now tried putting that exact one (same was in the Arocs) and it does look well! I actually fell in love in the original balloons with the 90s "monster truck" vibe but I will try other ones. I don't have many rims in white - maybe 32020 from barcode truck will fit any off-road tires somehow. Thanks for the good words guys!
  14. Geeting closer to the finish... - Front modified - rear wheel arches - and finally wheels on! Things to do: - HOG. Not sure yet whether to use the original beemer light or this will be considered studfull - seats... I have just realized looking at the online instructions that I have something missing in my original second hand bought 8858... I dont have the blue seats!!!
  15. This looks beefy! (but cool) :D I like it! Will have a look definitely After some break, I have started working again on this baby Playing around the front (especially difficult to get the shape of 3x3 2450 wedge plate) I know the it is not perfect but if I dont figure out something better, it will need to stay like this.
  16. More progress: - Front axle - Steering: had to rebuild the rear axle connection to fit the steering linkage to HOG. Will need to try bracing the gears better later on - Fake ngine - Rear fender updated - Starting to play around the shape of the outside: It's quite difficult to stay in the scale studless as ridigity becomes an issue without the studfull way to connect beams with plates
  17. I had these in mind but don't own them sadly. I will have to think of something else like panels or liftarms. The original is quite "crude" so it gives a bit of wiggle room. I have actually yes! As the first go I'm trying to recreate the mechanisms as they were with just conversion to studless. I will see how long it will take me to finish this version and I'll work on a few upgrades: - live rear axle, - custom engine, - front steering (it's really not nice in the original) but space is the issue as it's quite narrow and haven't had much thought what to replace the old rack (https://rebrickable.com/parts/6574/technic-gear-rack-1-x-2-with-ball-joints/7/) with. Maybe something simple like in the Rubicon I have made progress with the front axle, steering and suspension but forgot to take a picture - will upload tomorrow.
  18. How is it possible that another contest that I am excited about and I'm away from my Legos for the next month...
  19. This inspired me to actually buy the set! Now can't wait to get it, build the A model and then this! I am a little confused about the rear suspension set up though. Is the "leaf spring" just a fake to look like it but the actual suspension is traditional ?
  20. I'm so happy to see creations like that! Posts like these and all the gearbox ones just show there is still so much more to achieve in LEGO technic building!
  21. That would definitely be a contender in the last TC for motorbikes! That thing looks neat!
