  1. I am working on the 2018 Indycar aerokit and need to complete the model by early April. https://www.indycar.com/News/2017/07/07-24-New-car-unveil Functions -Working Pushrod suspension on all wheels -V6 fake engine coupled to rear wheel drive; maybe a 6+R DCT -Working steering For the front A-Arm I want the geometry to be as close as possible to the real thing while still being functional and I came up with a design with putting a pin hole with axle connector perpendicular to the hole on a #4 angled connector and then use a 6 stud axle to combine with another #4 axle. This works but I haven't figured out a good way to attach it to a frame and a wheel. If you want any images of what I just described send me n email at jack.bloomer@outlook.com. Any help on this model would be welcome. The color scheme will likely be the same as the Honda but with orange instead of red because that's what I own. This model will be in either 1:8 or 1:7 scale.
  2. Aircraft ain't my thing, dumb ideas are Basically rear end was a concept from 2016, rebuilt it in october last year as I wanted to test whether a counterweight placed in the rear of a vehicle would help with "drifting". Of course, this was paired with the best lego motors (2x mythical buggy motors), BuWizz (1.0 ) and not the grippiest floor tiles, producing a very fun experience (donuts, 180° turns, and if lucky, something resembling a drift). The steering department was done with a M-motor RTC-ed by a hockey spring as always. Controlled using the beta BuWizz app, which was a nice experience and luckily suffered a lot less connection issues than the older counterpart. Bodywork. Tough department. Looking back at it, could've done a better job on the front, but wanted to try something different to classic bionicle eyes. Was able to place 2 Technic figures inside tho. The video was thrown together today (3 months after finishing ) so as to finally dissasemble this thing. Any additional pics will be in the same Brickshelf folder.

    [MOC] Group-C 1990

    Dear fellow LEGO enthusiasts! May I present to you, my most recent model, a 90's -Era Group-C racecar. It consist of 900 parts, it features real steering, removable rear bodywork, fully modeled engine + interior, wheel covers - and all the proper aerodynamic features that made those race cars such fast beasts. Scale is about the same as the Ferrari F40, which is approx 1:14. I hope you like it! (7 pictures)

    [MOC] Super-GT

    Hey fellow LEGO-fans! This is a race car made using the rules of Super-GT - which is basically Japan's touring car championship. This model may look a little familiar because it evolved out of my latest creation. 1150 parts, steering, fully modeled engine, exact same size as the LEGO F-40. I hope you like it.
  5. TLDR: Super-detailed fully-modularized Creator-scale 16-wide MOC build of epic multiple-championship-winning early-90s IMSA GTP prototype. 1007 pieces (including 4 round-plates-with-strings, 6 pneumatic tubes, 1 hose, and 8 “non-Lego” custom parts). 1/15 scale: 17 stud wide (ish), 40 stud long, 22 stud wheelbase October 2nd, 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the IMSA GTP championship’s last race. This is the car that won. –––––– The mid-1980's were a boom time for American sports car racing. The IMSA GTP series was thick with manufacturers and strong privateer teams running Porsche, Jaguar, BMW, Chevrolet, Buick, Ford, Mazda, Acura, Nissan, and Toyota power integrated into myriad different chassis designs. Swelling budgets and fierce competitiveness forced materials and electronics technologies to evolve at a rapid pace. Dan Gurney and his All American Racers team had been on a learning curve with sports cars which really started heating up with the beastly GTO-class Toyota Celica. Their foray into big-league prototypes came first with an adaptation of a Group C based Toyota 88C and then the team's own 962-inspired HF89. These all helped to forge reliable power from Toyota’s 2.1 liter twin-cam 4cyl and teach many valuable lessons in designing and building a robust and competitive car. The MkIII debuted in 1991, entering into arguably the most competitive of GTP's seasons. The now-mighty little Toyota engine was connected to a compact carbon-fiber space-capsule wrapped in an achingly-simple shape which hid massive aero tricks. Dominance quickly followed with 21 victories in 27 races entered over three seasons. The glory of the series wasn't to last. By 1993, a global recession and conflicting technical regulations thinned the field such that at the end of the GTP era, Dan’s team was effectively left battling itself. For what it’s worth, I don’t believe this is the “car that killed GTP”… Successful racing series don’t die because a team or a car dominate, that’s what heads-up rulemakers govern and what motivated competitors rise to challenge. These guys were just the last ones standing as top-tier sports-car racing collapsed worldwide. ______ The exterior build posed a few challenges, mostly in capturing the layered smoothness of the nose and weaving slopes together to form the severe cutaway area aft of the front wheels. One of the things which has made me reluctant to work at this scale in Lego is the lack of an elegant solution for the heavily-curving windscreens and rear cowls found on prototypes. I wanted to capture the smooth simplicity of the MkIII’s shape without doing complex arrays of slope parts for the glass and engine cover so these surfaces are done as single-piece sheet elements designed to lock into the Lego framework (much like the recent minifig camping tent or Forma fish... anyone remember the City windsurfer?). These few non-TLG exterior parts plus the handmade BBS wheel centers are why strict Lego-only purists should probably think of this a “hybrid scale model”… Pull off the bodywork, though, and it’s 100% TLG. The MkIII's chassis has layers of very clever engineering done with a beautiful aesthetic of carbon fiber, kevlar, bare exotic metals, spindly gray-painted suspension arms, and amazing red-anodized fixing points throughout. It’s very purposeful but also very cohesive and elegant. This translates into an opportunity for some excellent Lego part and color usage. My primary goal for this model was to render a study of the engineering under the skin and to capture the modularity of prototypes as much as possible. There’s the core monocoque tub and a separate drivetrain, with further modules for the ducted side pods, doors, front splitter, bodywork, wing, etc. Hung off the chassis at all four corners is a suspension of bars and clips locating #90202 Technic wheel hubs. The driveline build captures the MkIII’s key features: the semi-structural and heavily-turbocharged Toyota 503E engine, the big red anodized mounting plates, the tall trapezoidal magnesium bellhousing which serves as the oil tank and rear suspension rocker-arm mounting structure, and the long load-bearing plates for the rear wing. This rear half of the model is mounted to the tub as in the full-scale car: plates at the top and base of the engine plus struts locating the central suspension structure. Despite all this modularity, the model builds up to be very solid. The cockpit is complete too; the seat, steering wheel, digital dash, switch panel, giant boost knob and handy “hardwood” shift-knob are all tucked in there. Other details inside include the bulkhead-mounted electronic engine-management modules and the front suspension's lower trailing-arm mounting.

    Hillclimb Rally Car - Gravel Trim-

    Hello fellow Legofreaks! May I present to you, my newest creation! This is a large scale model of a typical Time Attack // Hillclimb rally car. These are timed point-to-point racing events on various track surfaces -like gravel, tarmac or a mix- where there is only one goal: complete the course as fast as possible. Thanks to the very open and liberal rules of those events those cars feature very powerful engines and spectacular aero packages. Downforce in excess of nearly twice the weight of the car at 100mph and engines that create up to 1000 horsepower are not unheard of. My model consist of approx 900 parts and features proper steering, a completely modeled interior with roll-cage, 6-cylinder turbo engine and of course all the sensible downforce creating aerodynamic devices like a swan-neck rear wing, huge rear diffuser, front splitter, ankle cutters, Gourneys etc. etc. The car is sporting a heavy gravel trim, which means slim heavily profiled tires and elevated ride height. I hope you like it!

    Classic 1990 Ferrari Formula 1

    Hello fellow Legoheads! Here is my most recent creation, a medium-scale Ferrari Formula 1 car in the style of the 1990's era. 450 parts, original LEGO stickers, steering, and all the proper aerodynamic features of that time - namely big wings, bigger wing end plates and a blown diffuser for -literally - tons of down force. If you like it or if you have an ideas for improvements please let me know via a comment. Thank you!

    [MOC] Vintage Endurance Racecar

    Hey LEGO people! May I present to you, my model of an open top vintage endurance race car from the mid to late 70's. This is a heavily modified and improved version of a model I posted many, many moons ago. Those cars participated in the 24 and 12 hour events and were famous for their low drag bodies, blistering top speeds of up to 380 km/h / 235 mp/h and extremely lightweight constructions. I hope you like it!
  12. Here's my entry for Rebrick's "Racers of Tomorrow" contest. This is my vision of Mercedes AMG's 2030 F1 contender. This futuristic design features advanced aerodynamics, side mounted air intakes, the "Shield" windscreen and even a previously controversial fan on the back which sucks the car to the track, increasing downforce. It used to be banned from racing but by 2030 F1 cars had become so fast, that fans have become the only means of keeping the car stable. The windscreen also has AR technology that acts as a heads-up display for the driver. More photos can be found here: https://www.lego.com/en-us/rebrick/view-entry?c_id={4FA9C458-4653-4CF1-8622-FE8A6FA4CE22}&a_id=ce5e75ba-e84b-4f16-a924-3547e3609277 Please let me know what you think of the car. Thank you!
  13. With the 24 Hours of Le Mans approaching this weekend and seeing some other LMP cars on here recently, I decided to post as well! This is the Audi R18 in 2016 colors, on its last race year, more description below. I've been fascinated with the Le Mans 24 hour Endurance race since I was a little boy. My father shared his passion for auto racing with me and naturally, I also got hooked! After recently visiting an World Endurance Championship race this year and seeing a life sized Porsche 919 made half out of Lego and half out of a real car, I couldn't resist designing my own (although not quite as big). I know there are already a few current Lego sets that feature racecars like Speed Champs, but I wanted to design one that had a higher level of detail and really showed off the beautiful design of the LMP class. This design was done using the studless technique to keep the aerodynamic feel of an actual car. It is quite sturdy and uses standard Lego bricks/panels/slopes without requiring specialized body moldings. The car measures 11 inches (28 cm) long x 5 (12.7 cm) inches wide x 3.5 inches (8.9 cm) tall and is equivalent to 1:16 scale. It is just a bit bigger than minifig scale, although a minifig will fit inside the cockpit after removing the roof which easily comes off of two studs. The car can roll on a flat surface and has about 4 mm of ground clearance. I added racing numbers on the side panels and front for fun. Obviously more stickers could be added to make the car look even more like an actual car highlighting all the team sponsors, but I chose to keep the look clean.

    [MOC] Group-6 75' Race Car

    Hey fellow LEGO fans, may I present to you my latest creation! As the title says, this is a (fantasy / my own interpretation) version of a Group-6 race car from the mid to late 70's. I had a ton of fun building it as I never used so many smooth round bricks in a single model before. It consist of approx 760 parts, it has functional steering, its low-drag aerodynamic design is very realistic, it has a removable rear bodywork and a fully modeled cockpit. I hope you like it!
  15. This is my own custom supercar made from spare legos Please leave any comments, feedback, or suggestions for this car I will be happy to answer any and all comments on this build Thanks as always StangMan302
  16. This F1 Racecar was something Dugald and I have been talking about doing for a long time. All of the regular batteries and motors just aren't fast enough. We tried our best to keep everything light weight, but enough paneling to show the curves of a real F1. Video: Flickr: https://flic.kr/s/aHskMrkHjm Fastest car we've ever built by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Technic Addict was so kind to lend us his RC buggy motors, battery pack and Michelin tires. (I am quite fond of those tires, but I checked bricklink and found the cheapest used pair to be 110$ for all 4 so yeah... not going to buy em Back end fun by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Dugald asked Technic Addict what he would like to see built with these motors and he was really keen on seeing a light F1 car to show off the speed of the motor. SO here you go Technic Addict! Thanks! IMG_2291 by lachlan cameron, on Flickr My brother and I sat down yesterday at 4pm, grabbed a few drinks, and built the night away. At 12pm we were done! IMG_2304 by lachlan cameron, on Flickr The car weighs 1450 grams or 3.2 pounds. Most of the weight is in the Michelin tires IMG_2353 by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Super low car for better aerodynamics IMG_2347 by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Big shout out to Technic Addict for making this build possible!
  17. So my friend Eric built a 24 Hours of LeMons race van from a 91 VW Vanagon and a 2.5 subaru legacy motor. I helped out with making the Polizei decals but overall it was a sweet deal for me because all I really had to do was show up and drive. It was my first LeMons race and my first time on a track in an actual road race, and it was FUN. If you haven't heard of the series, check it out here... http://www.24hoursoflemons.com/ Our van even got some great press on roadkill.com... http://www.roadkill.com/lemons-sears-pointless-vans/ http://www.roadkill.com/sears-point-lemons-winners/ Anyway, my friend spent a lot of money and hours building this awesome van so I wanted to do something nice to thank him for his hard work so I made him a LEGO version of our van to say thanks. Obviously this box is just a mock up, but I did make these designs into an actual box using a LEGO box I turned inside out and covered with some large photo prints from my 13x19 printer...I just forgot to take a picture of it before giving it to him. Since I knew he'd appreciate building it, I made the van into a kit with instructions made from photos since making actual quality instructions is a huge pain in the megablocks... http://odometer.org/polizei/ I really like the minifig fez as an aircleaner... Overall I'm super happy with how it came out, it was my first attempt at a larger vehicle and I think it worked out well. I did cheat a bit with the black decals to make a wider grill, but I figured if TLG can use a sticker for the middle divider on the split window of their VW bus, then I can get away with that. Here's some pics of the real van in action...
  18. As soon as the Porsche contest began, I knew Dug and I would be in this contest. It began with a trip to his work where he was fixing a 1973 Porsche. It was on a hoist and he was explaining how the rear suspension with the torsion bars work. I didn't think it was possible, but we found a way to create torsion bars for the front and rear suspension. 75 studs long x 31 wide x 21 high. This is the first car we have created to scale. This creation comes with Hidden battery, motors wiring tucked, 1:7 scale, trailing arm, torsion bar rear suspension, realistic interior, wide body, 1973 Porsche RS custom race inspired body, spare tire and vn in original location, working fan on motor, 2xl for drive, 1 servo for steering.

  19. Another MOC built with my bro :) I had some difficulty in creating a working scissor door for my car and wanted to share the design. With this design it seems you could motorize the doors as well. custom scissor doors! ;)
  20. I have decided to make a Ferrari 250 GTO and decided to bring it here for constructive criticism and the likes, so here it is. The first picture I took of it. Ferrari 250 GTO Wip by T.timman, on Flickr Left side view with my sig-fig on top. Ferrari 250 GTO Wip by T.timman, on Flickr Rudimentary rear axle for test purposes. Ferrari 250 GTO Wip by T.timman, on Flickr The bottom Ferrari 250 GTO Wip by T.timman, on Flickr The front, showing the front suspension (which at the time is the only suspension it has) Ferrari 250 GTO Wip by T.timman, on Flickr It currently is in a "see if it works" stage, I will be adjusting the rear to live axle soon. I look forward to sharing more of this with all of you when it starts take shape.
  21. Here's something you don't see often -- a Lego racecar made with an onboard intelligent brick! Laurens Wuyts posted this YouTube video of his Lego Mindstorms NXT Ferrari 246 model. His Flickr photostream shows many of the details. He credited Sheepo for the suspension design. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWHy3a-aSHU
