    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    Hopefully. Usually, the price for B&P is somehow directly related to their weight. The Claas tires cost 5.12€. The Tumbler tires were about 7,50€. A small Mini Sai piece is 0.12€. Maybe the driving ring extension is made out of some kind of unobtainum. ;-)

    I just spoke to the TLG customer service regarding a parts order. The new driving ring extensions (yellow, 6211768) cost a stunning 5.20€ per piece. The gear shifter (orange, 6227330) clocks in with 2.58€.
  3. Incredible. How long dd it take to set this up?

    Your Best Technic Bargains

    I found a 8420 street motor cycle for 32€ including shipping. No box, no instructions but in good condition. I couldn‘t resist. The wheels/tires alone are more expensive than the set. Not to mention the spring/shock absorber. Now I can build Nico71‘s Morgan threewheeler.
  5. Hello! ich just found this on kickstarter.com and wanted to share this while I‘m waiting for my coffee https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1581732981/smallest-wifi-rc-brick-with-rechargeable-battery-f?ref=discovery&term=Lego It looks just like a BuWizz but for WiFi. Has anyone been aware of this project? Disclaimer: i‘m not associate with those guys in any way.

    LEGO Technic Turbo Polyp / Kraken

    I really like the trailer. What are your plans regarding a tractor/truck? Looking forward to see all the parts coming together.

    I just a complete Spick3r Robot (one of the Mindstorms EV3 Models) for 82,50€. The lot included the intelligent bricks, 2 large motors, 1 medium motor, IR sensor and the remote. Everything appears to be working properly.

    [MOC] Iveco Daily

    I love it. A very, very original MOC. We see those vans/small lorries every day. Looks great and is instantly recognisable. As for the idea of a fake engine proposed earlier - maybe the a 4 cylinder engine based on the Mack Anthem engine could fit under the hood.
  9. Good evening! Based on efferman's RC trailer i tried to extend the length to fit a 40' trailer: Well, it didn't work out well. The weight of the trailer causes several issues: 1. the crane arms tend to bend towards the container. 2. The geometry of the cranes and the LAs ist not sufficient for the extra weight. When fully extended (or retracted) the LAs can barely move the weight and the safety clutches kick in. 3. The bevel gears driving the LAs tend to slip a lot. Issues 2&3 lead toward an unsynchronous movement of the cranes. Thus the container is unbalanced, one side lower than the other.
  10. I second Doug72. Very unsual vehicle what makes it very interesting. Clever mechanisms and great presentation.

    [MOC] Peterbilt 579

    Great truck. Do you think there’s way a way of extending the chassis by 2or 3 studs in order to move the rear axles further back. this picture shows the proportions quite well. https://goo.gl/images/6bGXvr
  12. @BusterHaus nice idea. However I do not understand why it has to be driven by a belt ? Would an axle through the red connector, the pulley and the gear work as well?
  13. Great. I had a blast watching it. This is one cool mod. Excellent presentation. And the lights are cool as well.
