  1. Thank you for feedback. The problem was with one of front CV's, in the simpe words: I lost front axle drive Problem was with steering knuckle. Now it is solved. Those Wheels are from 1:10 Touring/drift/rally RC cars. I also I did his Shaman 8x8. It's a great and useful experience to build other creator's models. I can do it, I told you
  2. Hello, Madoka's JEEP Wrangler for me is most beautiful JEEP build from LEGO ever. That was a love from the first sight. And it is also fit my favourite scale - 15 stud wide body, like my Toyotas. Since I saw it - I want it on my shelve. Comparing to Madoka, who's every new model is a Challenge and he never use previous model's elements (no matter body design or internal structure of chassis), I am quite conservative. My every next model is evolution of previous if talk about chassis. Madoka's JEEP Wrangler chassis is awesome, but I prefer my own with springs, links and gear rack steering. So I stretched his Jeep from 3 door version to 5 door, added rear seats with foldable backs. Put it on the Hilux chassis with minor changes and that's my "own" JEEP. specs - Driving - XL motor - Steering - Servo motor - Body removable from chassis - Openable doors - Removable 2 section hardtop roof - Suspension on both live axles - 4x4 transmission - LED lights - Smart Brick for RC with iPhone / ДУ через Sbrick - 1 stud lift possibility - Winch is fake (like all beautiful things in modern world:)) The hardest part for me was rear doors. That sounds funny, but making them tapered with the right angle was impossible using standart angle connectors. So I have to cheat and use LEGO System bricks and inverted slopes. No, I never miss this bricks while playing Jeep, but this element is still bothering me. May be someone could offer better design - I will be glad to use your idea. Front axle is little bit long, shifted forward may be half or one stud, than should be. But this was done to fit larger wheels, because stock wheeled JEEP Wrangler is the worst looking offorader in the world, especially long wheelbase version I also left possibility for body and chassis to be connected on two ways: standart and 1 stud lifted. This is lifted verison with 74 mm tires from RC4WD Jeep is modular like real model with removable doors and 2-section roof, thanks Madoka for design. Front lights are still LED ready. Expeditional stuff increases the weight of the model, but this is Jeep's calling to be like that. Roll cage, roof rack, spare wheel holder, baggage and cans, fake winch, extra lights, snorkel and extendable rain/sun tent. With minor changes in the axles, model can stand on RC 1:10 tires that have wide variety to choose from And my favourite: Buggy Mode with RC4WD Mickey Tompson Baja MTZ tires about 81 mm diameter. And this is not just shelve model, because Jeep without roof and doors is really light. If you put Buwizz in it - you will have a lot of fun with it ;) Many more photos here My advice to novice builders: don't hold your sets under the dust on shelve, and don't try to build your own model from scratch. Modifiying sets and models of other designers is the easiest way to increase your skills. Don't afraid, just try:) You can also see some other wheels variations in the next video. And of course, test drive in different conditions, including rocks, mud and water. Have a nice time;) How it performs with BUWIZZ? Check it out p.s. You can also watch review of Madoka's model.

  3. about sweaty scrathing fingers? I have a talk with Bugatti's bodyguard there, he was a Bugatti employee...
  4. I think that was not only a clear cheat, but also they defended paint from scratching sweaty fingers of lego-freaks
  5. Thanks for review. Even I did my own review, I am still enjoying your "paper" reviews. As for real bugatti blue color in LEGO House - It is was not painted like everyone thought. That real bugatti was covered by foil. Actually it was silver under foil, and since Geneva's blue-dark blue model already sold out, for these event they cheated. That was a secret, and I don't think someone noticed that... p.s. I didn't have LEGO USB flash in my bag, only bugatti (with corrupted media files).
  6. Working propeller is something magical. It catches a glance. May be this is the secret of winning? It help model to move forward
  7. Well done! Love the suspension more than other functions (that are also cool!)
  8. oh, is it LEGal? Looks like this is strong 18+ content Thank you
  9. Madoka's design is what you need
  10. Welcome to the dark side of LEGO purism waiting for new version of Jeep. It is always a challenge and fun for me to improve previously designed model. And I would like to see your updates too
  11. May be you'l find it interesting: I did review with english translation subtitiles
  12. Test drive! Review waiting for translation and will be shared ASAP
