  1. I believe this page is where it all started: http://www.teamhassenplug.org/GBC/ It contains the basic guidelines for modules. I think that is a good start.
  2. Would it be possible to build it with stacked plates at an odd angle ending with these pieces? Not sure how durable it would be... Do you need the 1U liftarms between the attachment points?

    stringless three-section boom

    You could replace the string in the traditional solution with two gear racks and a gear. Fix one rack to the first section and the other to the third section. Then attach a gear (or gears) to the second section so that it couples the two gear racks. Then you just need to figure out how to drive the second section with a third gear rack.

    General Part Discussion

    I think I've seen a clock that used this technique for the hands.
  5. I've seen people put rubber bands in the groove of the rim to increase friction.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    I'm glad that there is yet another set of wheels with proper offsets.

    [MOC] Offroad Truck

    Seems that your chassis has rusted quite badly
  8. That seems a lot easier than the original design I have to say
  9. No problem, differentials can be difficult to understand. I've seen many similar posts on this forum. Maybe someone should write a guide...
  10. It still looks like expected behaviour considering my previous message.
  11. Diffs send power to where there is the least resistance. The rear axles have more gears and more friction. => All power is sent to front axle. Put the wheels on it and roll it on the ground. If it is correctly assembled the center diff will then rotate and all wheels will roll smoothly.
  12. From what I see the model is behaving correctly. Rotate the center differential (red casing) directly and all axles should rotate the same way.

    42099 - 4x4 X-treme Off-Roader

    There is no need for a compass because there is a 3-axis gyro. You can use integration to track both position and rotation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inertial_measurement_unit It probably wouldn't be very accurate but an interesting project at least.

    GBC General Discussion

    Considering how popular GBC seems to be, do you think Lego will ever explore the concept in an official set? Maybe not with the fan standardized module based system. It would probably be a bit too expensive. They have done kinetic sculptures and GBC is quite close to that in my opinion. Sorry if this has been discussed before, this thread is quite long.

    [GBC] Upslide

    I think Zerobricks meant that use the catch as the sliding part on the rotating vertical axle, not the actual pusher. This would eliminate the need for the other vertical axle.
