  1. That looks good, but what it supporting that wheel arch? It doesn't look like there is much holding it in place.
  2. People arguing over the 4 wheel steering being realistic, meanwhile the engine is driven by a chain.
  3. Since when do the Chinese care about patents or anything legal? They've been stealing and reproducing millions of items for years. I recall someone here saying that the knock off companies in China must take legal action against other knock off companies knocking them off.
  4. Lego sets most likely don't use a "park" feature because no doubt they will have complaints that the user broke something.
  5. No questionable green plant this time?
  6. I can't get past how ugly those short panels look on the tops of the doors.
  7. Lego made their entire fortune based off of conflict and battle. Bunch of hypocrites.
  8. My Kia has shift paddles, so I know which one is supposed to be pulled for upshifting. My question was whether or not the paddles in the Sian were correct or if I built something wrong. The Porsche was designed by the same Lego designer as the Sian, and even though the shift sequence is all wrong, the paddle on the right does upshift when pulled. When I pull the right paddle on my Sian it is downshifting. Is this how it is for everyone, or did I build something incorrectly?
  9. When I pull the right paddle forward (like you do in a real car with paddle shifters), and roll the car along, the engine rotates faster with each pull when it should be moving slower. When I pull the left paddle forward and roll the car along, the engine rotates slower. Or are these "Paddles" supposed to be pushed? I mean that will solve the problem, but it isn't very realistic when compared to a real car, but then again, the paddles would also be mounted on the steering wheel and be electronically controlled.
  10. Before I start tearing this apart and seeing if I screwed something up, when you pull the right paddle forward, shouldn't the gearbox upshift? Pulling my right paddle forward downshifts and pulling the left paddle forward upshifts. Or is this how it is supposed to work on this model?
  11. Looks great. A must buy. The rear end is off though.
  12. Probably "Coming Soon from Lepin"
  13. So much for Lego's big announcement tomorrow. It looks quite stunning.

    MOCs vs Official Sets

    I somewhat agree with this. I feel that official sets seem to use the best logical clever thought out solutions where MOCs that I have seen will use the quickest(or illegal) solution just so the designer can move on to the next part. My main issue is people hyping up models to be better than official sets, then you get convinced to drop 25 or 30 euro on their instructions only to find out that the MOC is actually poorly designed.
