    [MOC] 1966 Classic Batmobile

    I know James isn't one of those guys that bumps his threads a 100 times, but I am surprised this hasn't received more attention here. This model is fantastic and so original. Well done.
  2. I posted about the 5 tan bevel gears inside the housing in this very thread a week ago. On one side, but the other side looks like it's just a regular axle with a bushing helping hold it in place. So the front wheels do not return to center? They must be manually controlled to return?
  3. What keeps the rear axles from pulling out? Just friction? Probably bushings on them between liftarms.
  4. If I remember correctly, there are 3 clips on the housing that snap into the gear. What I don't know is if the gear can easily be removed or not. I could be wrong, but from the brief bit that I had seen, it didn't appear that this gear had any clutch capabilities like the 20 and 16 tooth gears have. At least one side of it doesn't.
  5. Yeah, the gear connects to the housing. I assume that you can disassemble it if you need to replace a gear if one breaks. Not really sure. There was a tan gear on the bottom then 3 in the middle and one on top and then the big red gear from what I remember. The set is out now, so it shouldn't be long before more about this comes out.
  6. Yes. It looked like it held in the 5 little gears. Do you have a link for that?
  7. I went back on Facebook and tried to find the video but it is gone. I think the red gear snapped on to the housing after all of the little bevel gears were placed into it. Certainly stronger for RC than what we currently have.
  8. Could be. I guess that we'll see when the new UCS car comes out next year.
  9. Could be. But you would think that a auto manufacturer would want things as similar to real life as possible. Anyone that has ever driven a car knows that the lower the gear, the higher the RPM, which is why you need to change gears. If it were me, I would want kids to start off in the right direction.
  10. From the video, it looks like the differential is 7 pieces.The reddish gear is separate from the housing(I think it attaches somehow) and there are what looks to be at least 5 smaller tan bevel gears inside the housing.
  11. Cool in progress B model. Interesting that he has the engine speed going faster with the lower gear in this one, but in the A model it is the opposite.

    [WIP] Subaru Impreza WRX STI

    The wheels look a bit small for this scale.
  13. Yeah, they're definitely stickers. You can see the outline edges of them in the first post of this thread.

    Technic 2020 Set Discussion

    I would have to agree with you on that.
  15. So how does this work? Can the L Motor be programed to return to center? I don't have the 42099 set.
