  1. Some might still remember this offroader I started sometime ago in 2019 and showed earlier versions in the 8081 mods thread a while ago. Well, I finally "finished" it now and created digital models for it. I call it the COMMANDO and it is "sold" by MM (Mars Motors). People that follow my Turbo Racers series and my series of 42093 scale cars with swappable engines should already know MM. To show its capabilities I made a trip to a special location and examined what it can do there. Have a look into the video to see what it possible: The configuration in this video has all axles locked and uses the drivetrain variation #2 (see below). The COMMANDO started as the glorious 8081 A model and went through lots of modifications - especially to the front and rear axles and also to the outer hull - on the way to the final result. I created three versions so far: with 1 x PF AA battery box with 2 x PF AAA battery boxes with BuWizz 2.0 ...from which the BuWizz one was used during the video and also most of the time I drove it so far. Here are a few more detailed pictures showing it in that terrain: Here are two pictures showing the chassis construction (click to magnify): ...and here are the three drivetrain variations that can be used (click to magnify) More variations are possible and the gearing can be changed with relative ease, as the motors are not an integral part of the construction: #1 is used for the PF versions and #2 is used for the BuWizz version. #3 can be used to examine the effects of open differentials in offroad situations. The COMMANDO can use various tyres and clearance should be good enough for all of them: 45982 81.6 x 38 R Balloon tyres 18450 81.6 x 44 R (Tumbler) tyres 69912 81 x 35 Tractor (Zetros) tyres I have also already designed a few addons that will be released at a later time - need to create the digital models first - and I have even more ideas for it. So far I have available: front winch rear PTO exploration gear tracks So stay tuned for additions. I hope you like the COMMANDO and I hope it is a worthy successor to the 8081 A model. If you're interested, the - free of charge - digital models (Studio files with detailed steps and submodels) and more pictures are available on Rebrickable:
  2. After finally getting the 8081 Extreme Cruiser and enjoying the build, i just had to make it remote controlled. There's so much space in this chassis! And small offroaders are always a win (Unfortunately i neither have a good camera nor a nice photo-studio, so the pictures aren't that nice.) Everything fits nearly seamless, except for my horrendous cable management: (original on the left, MOD on the right) For propulsion i used two L-Motors geared 25:28 to the wheels, steering is done by a servo. As i built this mod from my own parts, i didn't use the original Technic Gear Rack 1 x 2 with Ball Joints. The result is a convoluted mess with far to much slack. But it works well enough to drive over other peoples feet Here's the belly shot: The servo is located above the L-Motors. To insert my steering solution, i had to ditch the original fake V4. The Battery Box fits perfectly in the boot. And replacing it doesn't take more than opening the boot lid. to take it out. (It's positioned on short axles) And finally i remodelled the front a bit, closing some gaps and installing glowing lights In the end i'm really glad, that i searched for this model even though it's relatively old. It's a nice build, a good parts pack, very modable and still nice to look at. @moderators: i started this thread because no such topic existed and i didn't knew in which of the other 8081 topics i should put my post. Feel free to move/merge it.
  3. Hi, You can find photos of this MOC can be found on my Bricksafe and also on my Instagram (soon). And if you want to build it, you can too! This MOC has been uploaded to my Rebrickable profile with full PDF guide! (MOC-34705 Concept car, 8081 hommage) The idea was to build new car, a full-fledged successor of previous model, the legendary 8081. Because the old car was out of date from safety and legal reasons, my RnD center had to come up with completely new chassis. However, although it is built from scratch, it is still the original and well-known 8081. It has rear wheel drive, powerful fake engine (with two more cylinders than the original car) in the front, double wishbone (almost) suspension in the front and live axle in the back. It is still a sporty SUV GT coupé you all liked, not a pick-up supposed to work and carry loads, or luxurious and oversized familyhouse on wheels. However, you can still fit some luggage (or boxes with your MOCs, when you're going to some LEGO convention) in the trunk. In the cabin there are two comfy seats, that were inspired by the seats from other car manufacturers, who pay attention to ergonomy of any, even slightly atypical figures. In front of them is cutting edge dashboard with sophisticated infotainment system, for both driver and even for the passenger. The passenger's screen has access to dedicated social media, for example Headzbook (brickheadz refference). Behind the seats is a bench, where only some minifigs can comfortably sit down. The front bumper is modular assembly. This feature should stay even to serial production version, because we would like one day to offer also the "heritage edition" bumper, which would ressemble the original model. (not really, but who, knows, it would be nice addition to the story of this MOC...). If you look at the rear of the car, you can see single exhaust pipe. Well, it is just a fake one. This is is supposed to be my entry for 8081 rebuild challenge. I hope it won't be disqualified, because it has not very much in common with the original car at first sight.
  4. Another MOD of the fantastic 8081 set is done! Styled after a LR Defender pickup, this MOD features the following: 4x4 drive. Steering Front and Rear live axle suspension with Panhard rods Opening doors and tailgate Seating for four V-8 fake engine Roll cage Fischertechnic 80mm tires. Full album is here. Driveline From the left Articulation I'm still working on the sport pickup, but this should be good for now.
  5. I decided to UP the things with my take on the 8081 modification contest. Here's what I came up with: Driven and steered front axle with homeage to the original design Tandem live rear axles working on a simillar prnicipal as the front axle Differential lock Two speed gearbox Working steering wheel You can see a sneak peek of the progress made in LDD:
  6. Touc4nx's corp is proud to present you the remastered edition of 8081. This remastered edition include a totally new suspension setup, made of one rear live axle and independent front suspension with negative's caster angle. The springs orientation were kept as close as the original one. It means that the front spring ar mounted almost horizontally. The bodywork was modernized and has now a smoother look. Doors and trunk are openable. And the steering wheel is working. And Touc4nx's corp is glad to show you their last advertising :
  7. QB stands for quick build - this was a veeery fast paced build (overall build time 7-8 hours). The outcome is proportionally ugly and unfunctional. Front independent suspension, rear floating(?) axle [9398 style], v6 engine sped up with 1:2334 gear ratio from rear wheels. Working steering wheel and HOG. Hood, doors and trunk openable. Crude interior with 2x blue seats. Cya later!
  8. Greetings, i want to introduce my MOD of official set 8081, made for @Thirdwigg's and @rm8's fan contest. Warning, pictoral heavy post ahead. We all know about bug hit in SUV market - Daytona Extreme Cruiser - city suv with v-4 under hhe hood, stylish body and good offroad perfomance, while being rwd only. We heard that new generatiopn is under development now. Soon maybe we see spy photos of prototypes on their test drive... But lets look back, in the past, to see what lies in roots of Extreme Cruiser. What allowed Daytona automobiles to test new ideas and engeneering soutions... Meet the Daytona Omnis R2 It was produced in early 80-es in small quanities and today it become a rare classic. Underrated, but classic. View from all sides: As it sucsessor, it features openable hood, doors and trunk Under the hood supercharged v-4 engine could be found. Also unique front suspension can be seen too. Rear suspension is regular live axle. Car have spartan interior which aside of front seats has also small rear bench, making car 2+2 seats formula Lets look on Omnis from below You can see vehicle's 2+N synchronized transmission and suspension, which has long travel and soft shock absorbers, ensuring comfort and smooth ride even on off-road. Examples of suspension travel Hope that you enjoyed our little demonstration. LXF file with model - Daytona Omnis R2.lxf?dl=0 Really hoping to see your comments and suggestions on my mod.
  9. 8081 Extreme Cruiser & PF Modification PF Mod Ever wanted to see the Extreme Cruise be taken to the EXTREME. Then watch this Extreme Cruiser as it goes over the roughest terrain. Edit: Edited the video due to loud intro music
  10. Don't MOC too much, but found I have set eligible for TC5 contest. So gave it a try. Here is what I came up with on a first try - Rat Rod. No specific copy, just basic similarities. Functions: 1. independent fron suspension 2. drag type rear suspension 3. steering controlled from driver place 4. working powerful V8 inline 4-cylinder fake engine, connected to rear wheels 5. openable suicide type doors Still, quite a lot of (good) spare parts left, but I'm tight on some very basic pins.
  11. Hi everybody! For this great contest I've think to create a C-Model from set 8081 8081 Extreme Cruiser: a beach buggy. Pics coming soon.
  12. Extreme cruiser S / GT spec My another modification of one of my favourites technic sets 8081, which I do recommend to every technic car-building beginner;) Real 4WD i have already made. You can watch it here Now it is time for make it low! Get low! Lets begin with S spec version EXTREME CRUISER S (sport) This is a street-legal version with RWD and civil tires 62.2x20. In comparison with original 8081 set it differs by: modified and lowered front independent suspension rear suspension live axle type, like on the 9398 crawler with torque tube and two stabilizing links. Live axle is normal for ford mustang, so it is not so wild, like it can seems. I think this type of suspension is most optimal and compact. Thanks for torque tube, TLG. shock absorbers was substituted to yellow hard version (from 8070). Front receives two independent absorbers instead of one soft. sport exhaust pipe with doubled mufflers sport aerodynamic bumpers with air intake holes. Side skirts also appeared. new front grill with. Number plate is disappeared. Such cars usually can be seen from the back;) spoiler on the third door street-legal tyres 62,2х20 Ground clearance is normal for city using. Ok, say "goodbuy" to this piece of .... It was developed for grandmas:)))) Moving to next version "GT spec". EXTREME CRUISER GT (gran turismo) As you can understand this version is more angrier than S, for real muchos, that know what GT means:) This model is mainly for track days, but of course, you can go for pancakes on it. it differs from S spec by next things: suspension is lowered 1 stid, at the same time its amplitude was decreased. It is really hard, my camera feel sick after driving on it. It can be more harder if you replace shock absorbers by 6L liftarms. widered wheel arches and side skirts (Wide-body), red line on bumpers; sport low profile tyres with wide wheels; larger spoiler for speeds 250+! GT still can be used as everyday car, cause drivers seat is here. No, you cant place your mama at passenger seat. Car also includes dashboard with turbine pressure indicator;) all doors are still openable. Sorry for many photos, but i like it. Ok lets move to serious things. Kids can go sleep, cause nothing interesting comes next. Front suspension Rear suspension: And this GT is with suspension from S spec with increased clearance. For "perfect" russian roads;) Evolution of 8081 *-foto from Kostya Bazdirev's review. Best 8081 review in my mind ОБЗОР Do you think it will stand on shelve? No way. Buggy motor is waiting to burn some rubber. IR v2 receiver, LiPo battery help them at this fun deal. Of course, servo will help us to prevent car wall crash at first 2 seconds of play;) Ok, those who no sleeping yet, my family video: Forget to say: no drift today. But second Buggy motor is waiting. dont forget about 4wd There is nothing new in this model, but it is fun and fast. I was bored reading 25 pages about coming sets. So relax:) and feel free to comment
