  1. Dominator had a 4 + 1 gearbox. The 4 gears were switched using a mechanism like in porsche and the switching was not done in sequentially. The last, low range 5th gear was actived when in offroad mode. For a 4 speed version you can use the new chiron wave switch elements to simplfy the design.
  2. Having used the diagonal gearbox concept in my Dominator TRS and 10.000 Subscribers special Mashup models, I wanted to upgrade it and make it sequential. Due to the nature of the gearbox, I had to come up with a clever way to translate the rotational movement of the paddle shifter to the sequential movements required by this gearbox. This is what I came up with: Concept started with a basic diagonal gearbox with 6 gears: On top of that came the switching levers which are activated by the round wheels and centered with rubber bricks: In order to activate the switching levers in sequence, a switching axle was built using pulley wheels, which can be set up to activate any desired gear in it's 60 degree interval: Finally to switch the gears and to keep them in place a simple paddle shifter inspired by Chiron is used: Please check the video to see how it all comes together: For now this is still a concept, there is still an issue with levers sometimes staying in the gear, locking the gearbox. I think this is due to the nature of the rubber bricks and suggest using levers and rubber bands instead. I hope this concept will be useful not only for supercars, but also motorized models. If anyone has time and bricks to spare, I would like to ask them to give this concept a try and post feedback and improvements

    Hi, to clear up the questions You apply via online form on BuWizz site OR by posting your entry here on Eurobricks forums, since we are tracking both sites, either is fine. When all entries are gathered from both sources, they will be posted here on Eurobricks and voting will start. Competition is open to anyone, but it's not directly related to Eurobricks, we decided to use Eurobricks as a platform for voting.
