  1. Hey everyone! After thinking about this idea for about a week, I have decided to do something no one as ever done before, as far as I know. That is to make a 2 L motor, 1 Servo motor, V2 Receiver, 1 Rechargeable Battery Box, Full Independent Suspension, interchangeable chassis. The idea is to use this chassis as a base for both a Dune Buggy and Stadium Truck, all you have to do is swap different tires and rims and bodywork. Now I figured since many people like instructions I might as well make them for this project. What I will do is make an LDD file for the chassis and then another LDD file for the bodywork. Also the chassis instructions will cost about $5. That way you can buy the chassis instructions and get the bodywork instructions for free. To switch the bodywork you will most likely have to take off a few pins and swap the tires and rims according to the bodywork that you have. I'm thinking of basing them on 1/10 scale RC vehicles, so in truth I guess they could be 1/1 scale if the proportions are correct. Here's what I would like to model or something close to it: These are the kinds of body styles I want on the vehicle. The Stadium Truck will have the 42000 tires while the Dune Buggy will either have tires from 9398 or 8110. Also I will not be able to start the actual building of these vehicles until I finish making videos for my Trophy Truck, Tracked Arctic Explorer, and Kamaz 4326 4x4. Stay tuned for the beginning of this project!
  2. I'm not really a regular truck builder, but I like to think of new systems that do not exist in real life yet but that do improve the life of, for example, truck drivers. When something like a big tarmac machine has to drive onto a trailer to go to the next building site, the slope of the trailer should be very small. That small slope is nowadays achieved by making very large ramps that fold up vertically for transport, causing massive air resistance and therefore unnecessary fuel consumption. A way to make these ramps shorter is to decrease the bed height, because that asks for smaller vertical ramps. The second option is making the wheels below the bed smaller. But decreasing the wheel diameter increases the rolling resistance. Another way to solve the problem is placing the bed betweeen the wheels, so that it can be much lower, but that limits the cargo width: the tarmac machine can never be wider than the bed width, which is not handy if truckdriver x has to transport many different tarmac machines. Read the rest of the story and how I solved these problems with my my DAF CF with 3-axle trailer on Or watch the video here: To give an idea of the model, I have posted one photo below, the others can be found on http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=560197 in a better resolution.[/font][/size]

    [WIP] Offroad SUV

    Hello EuroBrickers! I am working on a Offroad Suv (NEEDS NAME!) Here are some WIP Pictures, sorry for the flash, it was at night! Here is a better picture, TMNT Cup for scale Still needs batterybox and a better roof. AND A NAME! I will accept name suggestions! More updates soon!
  4. Hey, this is my first post on Eurobricks so if there is anything that I am doing incorrectly in this post, please let me know. I am presenting my Rock Crawler, or more specifically, my Carrot Crawler. Features: -Triangulated 4-link suspension using the Lego soft shock absorbers. -One PF XL motor per axle (a total of two), each geared down 1:2.779. -Custom portal hubs for each wheel. -Ackerman Steering with slight caster angle powered by PF M motor geared down 1:3.333 including a worm gear. -Rechargeable LiPo battery box as power source. -Controlled by a SBrick and an iPhone 6. -RC4WD 1.9" Super Swamper crawler tires. This has been a work in progress for a long time and I feel that it is finally polished enough to showcase on the Eurobricks community. My plans for fixing and editing this crawler (Some of which, I have already begun working on) include: -Building a better chassis (the angled pieces on top of it don't REALLY fit, but I made them fit! ) -Eliminate gear slippage caused by the perpendicular bevel gears. -Mount the XL motors parallel to the axles which would both eliminate gear slippage and provide more ground clearance. Here is a picture: And here is a video: Please give my any suggestions for my post and more importantly, my crawler! Thanks

    WIP AMG G500 4x4²

    I started working on this beast: Front axle so far: Its a portal axle with extremely close steering point of the wheels, which lies on the inner edge. This means axle can be steered with RC unit's mechanical ouput.

    Old Moc's

    I just found some of my older moc's, and i thought i would share it with ya'll. The MAN KAT 8x8 is one of my first trial trucks, and still a pretty good one. The Rubber Duck from the movie Convoy is an icon to me, and one day i decided to build it. I came as far as completing the truck and a small part of the trailer, due to the shape of the trailer i couldn't afford it so i didn't finish it. I'm thinking of re-doing the duck to make it stronger and i regret taking it apart. Truck and trailer were inspired by 2Legoornot2lego's trucks The real truck

    Madoca's Tatra VS Zblj's Fox

    Hello All I am pleased to anounce, that in 2015, OSUHARDING1 will be doing a double review of both these Tatra's in question. There could possibly be an offroad duel between both, which I am very excited for; this will be the ultimate duel. Both mocs are amazingly built, I couldn't take one over the other, nor the builders either. Madoca is famous for his attention to detail (he is the pagani of technic), and Zblj is famous for fufilling and utilising functions to the best of their ability (though it doesn't mean that madoca's use of functions are useless, nor does it mean that Zblj builds ugly mocs). Madoca's Tatra has the best attention to detail, and is extremely precise for every of its functions. The Fox may not be too pretty, but it goes like a train though terrain. The Fox has been proven to survive all terrains, it can drive on any terrain including snow, ice, foresty areas, sand and can tow a car. You can literally say that the Fox has been around the world. Zblj also quotes his Fox as the most powerful tatra EVER, but then it would be because it has 1 XL motor per wheel. It has 2 winches capable of pulling itself up, not to mention its 8 wheel steering which can vary from rear steering, front steering, crab steering and opposite motion steering. It can climb up a hill but starts to loose traction due to the combination of torque and high revs, its either one or the other in technic. Madoca's tatra, aaahhh its a joy to look at, and to play with. It is very technical, but more stable than the fox when climbing objects (the fox is a bit skiddy when tackling objects). Madoca's Tatra's stablity also means it can climb higher than the fox on steep hills; it doesn't slip its wheels when climbing. Madoca's mocs are also known for there effective suspension and he always shows each moc, climbing over a few bumps. Not to mention that the Tatra has the offroad pedigree of the SUV MKII and the Offroad pickup truck, which are also made by madoca. Performancewise we know that all of Madoca's offroad based mocs can go offroad, but we don't know what extreme offroad conditions his Tatra can survive. Like I said its difficult to pick between them. This is equal to the battle of the 918 spyder and p1, one is a no-compromise and the other one is. Zblj's Fox is the ultimate expression of what a technic tatra can perform upto, and Madoca's tatra is the expression of what a technic tatra should compromise. The fox is a no compromise all terrain vehicle, stripped of things Zblj thought it didn't need: no fake engine, no rear cover, no based looks, its like the p1. Whereas the tatra is compromised, it was designed to replicate a real tatra, his tatra was built like the 918 spyder. But turns out lighter than the Fox but slightly slower Zblj believes because of the gear ratio. Zblj's Fox is also indestructable and was designed to cope with just about anything, like a saab. This willl be a great duel. Here are some pictures of the 2 Tatra's in question. Madoca's Tatra: Zblj's Fox: Note that both are 8x8 and are powered by multiple XL motors, instructions are available for both mocs, I think both are for free. Let me know what you think about both mocs, both builders are amazing and you must subscribe to their youtube channels for updates of their recent mocs. Also I'll leave a link to the video of the Fox and tatra, and also OSUHARDING1's review of Madoca's Tatra.

  9. I have built a lightweight 4x4 car that also performs quite well on hills. 50 degree hills, actually. It has been optimized for weight. It is driven by 2L motors, steered by one M-motor and powered by the 8878 battery. I have added an extensive review on, so if you have a question maybe the answer is there.
  10. Yo guys! I was thinking that making regular 4x4 is staritng to get really easy with the ball joints, portal axles, etc... So why not UP the challenge? The real life example of this is the King of Hammers. Here's more info. So can we build this in real life? I think we can using some smart techniques and gearboxes. Anyone interested?
  11. Hi everyone! I recently decided to build a new MOC at the mini scale, without reference to any real car or existing set. I just worked - and that's what I got. I think it would be redundant to paint characteristics of the model. All functionality and so well seen.

    Small Offroad Race

    Here's a clip of a race between two very different offroad machines Chettah 4x4 and Fox 8x8x8. Also what do you think of the navigation bar made using annotations?
  13. hi guys! im so late with the contest!!! i hope i can finish everything for sunday! my idea is to make a quad-bike wich trails a skijet...unfortunately pamela anderson won't feature in the clip im gonna make at the beach...she said it's too cold now..:P this will probably be my fastest project ever...i've started 5 hours ago lol so here's the chassis of the quad it has supensions, RTC steering...and it's tubolar of course XD there are a few beams just to simplify something here and there :) it's really light! at the state you can see in the pic it weighs 370g... i've placed the battery in the back so once i will put it in the sand it's gonna have a light front part wich is gonna prevent it from getting stuck (at least in theory XD) i hope you'll like it! i get back on building loooool
  14. Hey, here's my latest attempt at crawling. The Demon 4x4. I'm not happy with the body at all, but was very rushed to finish it due to my "play ground" being turned into a pond! Also underestimated how much red I had, ahha. Well the main experiment was to test the chassis, which I think held up really well. The dual steering really helps get over obstacles when needed. The axles are basically what I used on my reaper as they perform really well, but always wondered what steering front and back would be like. The weakness in this moc was how the shocks were attached to the body (poorly) and as a result popped off a few times. An easy fix I think, but not with this body, something better I think. Thanks for checking it out and wait for the crashes! I have an LDD file, but not sure how to upload it.
  15. In search of suspension ideas I noticed a couple MOCs that I never put on EB, so I decided to share them with you! These MOCs are from the old 'Technic Challenge' days, both buggies, and one is a large scale RC MOC with unique suspension and a tubular body while the other is a simple blend of studded/studless with suspension and steering. MOC #1-large RC offroad buggy One of my only MOCs which had appealing bodywork. Also one of the few MOCs to have reliable independent trailing arm suspension. My second MOC is a small non motorized stadium buggy in which I blended studded and studless constructions. The features included suspension, HOG and wheel steering, and a sealed (no holes for pieces to fall through) open-able trunk where i stored minifig tools. I have a couple more MOCs' photos stored on another computer so, if anything, I'll post them here.
  16. Hi all, Been lurking here for some time, and enjoyed viewing many of the MOCs you guys are creating. I ended my dark age 3 years ago with the Unimog set, however I don't have the motivation to join the world of MOCs until now. For my first MOC I have chosen to reproduce the Duke Coupe featured in the racing game "Dirt: Showdown". I think the simple structure and design of the car would be a good first practice on MOCs. For the build I didn't make much planning apart from approximating the stud length and width of the car, and deciding that it would be double wishbone suspension for both front and rear. Then I just laid all the available parts around myself and begin assembling freehand. I started out with the front axle, and decided midway that I want the build to also be IR controlled with a servo for steering and L motor for drive. The build then progressed to the centre section with the engine and exhausts. The exhausts took a lot of tweaking to make it look right, and even when I leave it I'm still doubtful of the appearance. I then skipped the main body section and begin work on the rear axle and the rear bodywork. Joining the front and rear took quite some time. Originally I wanted to have a detailed cockpit but the battery box, L motor and IR receiver took all the space. Designing and fitting the panels were easier than expected though. The roof was the hardest part of the whole build, I just couldn't get it to look right for a very long time. Later I accept defeat and decided on using flex axles again. In the last steps I find structural weaknesses (by using my hand to flex and twist the whole model) and strengthened them, then I finish the build with some last touches on minor details. The finished build: Engine bay details: Central PF elements: Detached rear body and roof: Detached front body and hood (One flex tube slipped out of position ): Belly shot: Specs: Length: 60 studs Width: 27 studs I don't know the exact weight but it is heavier than the assembled 42000 F1. I also don't know the part count since I didn't bother counting. IR controlled with servo steering L motor geared 1:1.4 with differential for drive to rear wheels (engine also connected) Speed: ~1 m/s Front and rear double wishbone suspension Wheelbase: 47 studs Track width: 23 studs Normally 4 studs clearance with 3-4 studs travel 1 stud clearance when fully compressed I am aware there may be some sub-optimal assemblies, some individual parts may not be 100% stably secured, and the bent axles may be illegal techniques. The ride height went a lot higher than I expected, the nose is also a few studs too long.and as a result the whole model looks a bit off-proportioned compared to the original. But I think the overall feel of the design is still there. Although the build was fairly basic and simple, the process was extremely fun. The exhaust turned out to all right once I attached the rear and main body. Watching the build take shape as it progresses was the most satisfying feeling I've had in a while. Thanks for viewing!

  17. Hey everyone, I've been working on this trial truck for 2 and 1/2 weeks now, and I am nearing completion. At first I wasn't going to make a WIP topic, but I need some advice for the cab design. So this is what I've been modeling mine after. My problem is the V8 engine, because the engine is too far back I had to make the cab longer as well. This totally throws off the proportions and makes the wheels look to small and the chassis too short. I also thought I would be able to make the cab in the new green and I have enough of the panels, but not enough liftarms. So I am open to color scheme suggestions. Just to let you know though, I could probably do it in Black, Red, Yellow, and possibly White with Blue. Here's what I have so far: As you can see I also have to accommodate for a tilting cab. It has full live axle suspension and an XL motor for drive and a Servo motor for steering.
  18. Hey everyone, As many of you probably already know, I made a WIP topic a while back for a similar kind of buggy, but..... I had not realized all the stuff that I had to do before beginning the buggy project, so finally the weather is getting nicer and I began the project once more. This time, since I've decided to go for a light and durable kind of buggy, I am using 1 L motor directly driving a differential and a Servo motor for steering. Along with a Rechargeable battery box and V2 receiver for the power source. It also has full independent suspension, which needs some modifications at the moment: So that's what I have so far..... The big problem I have is that the suspension is to hard for off road terrain (grass, dirt, small rocks). This needs to be fixed, especially because the chassis is pretty low. Another problem is the tendency to understeer on dirt. I hate understeer so much! Unfortunately I don't have any solution to this problem because I want to keep it as light as possible so adding some kind of weight in the front is out of the question. The only other thing in the front besides the servo, is the receiver which will actually be placed more in the middle of the chassis. ( Also the grey 15L liftarm that is placed over the front axle is just to keep the suspension from bottoming out since there are no shock absorbers at the moment for test driving)
  19. Hi guys! as i promised to you some time ago, i'm making the instructions for the polaris i've done in july :) i got the Ldraw file for this and it's also subdivided more or less logically in groups.... as i'd also like to make proper instructions i will share the ldraw file now for those who don't want to wait :P and in the next days i will update this topic with an idea that i have in mind wich could simplify the boring process of making step by step instructions :) i hope you'll enjoy building my 4x4 how do i add a spoiler to put the Ldraw text file inside :P? ps: it's free but not at all !!! if you download and build it, you have the moral duty to post your version here Here's the link where you'll be able to download the file and the pieces paper :)
  20. I've refined this model many times and this is the final version. a simple buggy powered by two medium motors rear wheel drive with diff its pretty fast and does alright off road a simple modification to the design could allow for an xl motor to be put in and geared up. in the model the steering rack sits in the slot at the front of the vehicle and connects to the 1x6 links and the two 1x8 axles connect in the front to form the tube body frame. i also couldn't find the ir reciver it attaches to the pins that are on the roof of the buggy and hangs upside down and inside the frame work. other than that its complete. buggy.lxf
  21. Hi guys! A year ago i built a sandrail... yesterday i felt like i wanted to build the MKII and so i did... Features: - 1 RC motor - RTC steering via M motor - Front independent suspensions - Rear live axle It's really simple, the concept was to use the less beams possible to keep it light... So i bult almost everything with axles and weighs 412g and it's pretty fast. BUT there's a the RC motor is very powerful, in some overstress cirumstances, the little 12t gears tend to break...that's why i called it "The Gearsbreaker" well there's not too much to add to the pictures you can see ^^ tonight im gonna upload the video to show its performances
  22. If you follow me on my youtube ( you might have seen my RC crawler project. It used 2 RC motors and was quite fast and well performing. You might have also seen my RC rally car videos, they were fast and nimble. However, I want to combine the best of both worlds in one trial buggy package. So after a lot of trial and error, i was able to incorporate a 2-speed transmission into a crawler with RC motors. The ratios are 15:1 (slow crawler) and 3:1 (fast buggy). It is shifted by a mini linear actuator via an m motor. I'll do some more testing, and as usual this most likely isn't the final version. Pictures:
