Hello. I'd like to present my latest Technic project. This a modification of Lego set 42037 Formula Off-Roader. The goal was to build a motorized version without loosing the feeling of the original. Because of that, my main constraint was to keep the seat, since that seems to be the preferred place to put some of the Power Functions components. I decided to change the motor for a V6 version because it's shorter and it allowed me to place the servo under it while keeping the original ground clearance. The model requires 561 parts, including Power Functions. The Lego set and the Modification share about 75% of the parts. I upload the building instructions and inventory to Rebrickable, in case someone want to give this a try. You can download the instructions from dagupa.net UPDATE: Axle was missing from rear wheels. Now fixed. Uploaded 21/12/2017 Pieces added: 2x Technic Axel #3 and 4 CV Joints I'm happy with the final product. I think it looks like a deluxe version of the original. It also performs well. In the video I used a V2 receiver and 8 rechargeable batteries. Thank you for your time. Feedback and suggestions are always appreciated. UPDATE: Axle was missing from rear wheels. Now fixed.

I've bought PF servo motor about one year ago and I haven't got chance to test it. Then this ugly buggy 42037 appeared and I realized it's good volunteer for testing it. My goal was to make it fully remote controlled with adding just PF parts and keeping original look as much as possible. So after two days I've got this result. It's powered by one M-motor, steered by servo motor and even uglier than before. It rides well on smooth and solid surfaces but it's pretty slow on carpet. Main issue was to find room for battery box. Front of buggy is almost unchanged and rear is rebuilt much. It can still open cab and fake engine works. It lost just seat and lights. If anyone is interested I'll share its LDD file.
