  1. It's page on rebrickable has a quick video showcasing it. Requires some level of skill, no doubts there, but once mastered, it's very rewarding.
  2. Welcome to another alternative model of the LEGO set 42095. It's surprising the flexibility this set has, which allows the creation of very different models. This is a three-wheeled beach race buggy, powered by the two l-motors available on the set, each one drives one of the front wheels, allowing the vehicle to go forward, backwards, turn left or right, and do 360º spins; talented drivers can also do drifts. The design is simple and aerodynamic, it has adjustable windshield and rear spoiler; side doors that can be opened as well as the small trunk behing the driver's seat. Other small features include a non-functional steering wheel, side mirrors, engine exhaust and small headlights. The cockpit serves as cable management for a clean look and the battery pack is very accessible if you need to quickly change batteries; the IR receiver is disguised as the driver's seat. The fun factor of this buggy is high and obviously tied to its uncommon three wheels configuration which will require some level of skill to drive. Building instructions available on rebrickable.
  3. This is basically a C-Model for the RC Stunt Racer, but instead of using the 2 original L-motors, i used 2 fake, chinese, buggy motors, which are more than enough for this build (they are also pretty cheap for the performance they pack and you can easily get them). Aside from the motors, all the parts used were taken from the set 42095 "Remote-Controlled Stunt Racer". The design is very compact and sturdy, cables are very well protected inside, the battery button is easily accessible on the back, the IR sensor is well disguised and positioned. It was made with the objective of being very fast and able to easily drift and spin, which i find to be more fun than doing wheelies, it's also very cool to do races with it and will require mastery to control due to its high speed.

    LEGO Technic set 42095 C-Model

    I actually thought of doing a rover as a c-model too, but don't think there are enough parts to do a good enough design.
  5. This is yet another C-Model for the LEGO Set 42095 "Remote-Controlled Stunt Racer". This time around, i challenged myself to use the available parts to build a war tank as closest as possible to the real, generic vehicle. I used the smaller sprocket wheels on purpose to make this model run slower to better resemble the real thing, as the original set doesn't have gears to adjust the velocity. It is powered by the 2 L-Motors, it can go forward and backwards, turn left and right as needed. The front is clear to easily overcome obstacles; on the rear there is a space dedicated for cable management. I tried to keep this build as compact as i could. It may not seem like it, but this was quite the challenge, it went through various revisions and parts optimization until i became happy enough with the result. It can be further improved and modded with additional parts, but i wanted to keep it as a C-Model, so i was restricted by the set's available components.

    LEGO Technic set 42095 C-Model

    Yeah, that was the point, to make something completely unexpected. It also runs pretty well, check out the video.

    LEGO Technic set 42095 C-Model

    Thanks. It uses 268 parts out of the original 324.
  8. Hello everyone. I just want to share a MOC i've made recently, it is a c-model of the set 42095 "Remote-Controlled Stunt Racer", so it was designed using only available parts on that set. It is quite a departure from the original, no one would think it was possible to build such a racer with this set. It uses a single l-motor to power one of the rear wheels and the other l-motor is dedicated to steering, which returns to center automatically by using a rubber band. I released free instructions for the steering system i developed for this MOC, check them here. The only limitation are the "tracked wheels", since there is no rubber, they don't have traction on smooth surfaces, this vehicle can only run on rough terrain like dirt, sand and snow, so it is basically an off-road racer. I tried to add as many details as possible given the available parts. The battery pack button is easily accessible, the IR receiver is on top to get the cleanest signal possible and the cabin is used for cable management, giving it a cleaner look. Building instructions are available at rebrickable, i also have a mechanical steering version here if you prefer. It is somewhat big, but lightweight and sturdy, so the l-motors can do their job easily and it runs quite fast. A quick video showcasing it is available here. For anyone who decide to build it, the most obvious modifications you can do is to replace the "tracked wheels" by normal off-road tires; or to apply rubber studs. Everyone feel free to share your opinions.
