Hi, this is my current WIP project, a jeep renegade. The goal is to make a mid size MOC which will use 62.4mm tires. The setup will be: Driven by 2L motors; Steering by servo motors; AWD; McPherson front suspension and multi-link rear suspension; I have been working on it for 2 months and here is the progress so far: Front axle: The whole car is supposed to be 19 studs wide and the lower arm ball joint distance needs to be 13 studs wide. The narrow width constraint makes it hard to put a normal differential in. So I chose to drive each side of wheels with one motor. I don't want hard coupe the two motors so a pair of 12:20 gears are used between motor and wheel. I have a little concern of the increased gear ratio as the weight of the whole car keeps increasing everyday... A compact built McPherson front suspension is used, the custom hub is small enough to be put most of it into the wheel. Combining with the king pin inclination, the suspension setup has a small scrub radius and can be fit in a compact wheel arc like real cars. There is no caster angle, no Ackermann steering. Also I failed to put the steering link behind the wheel hub since there is the 20 teeth driving gear. What's more, there is no room to put a typical inline 4 cylinder engine. I think I may use some fake cover in front of the servo motor to represent to engine bay in the end. Rear axle: The rear wheel hub has a very similar setup with the front. Uni-body: Like my previous MINI countryman MOC, the car has a uni-body setup like the real one. This time, thanks to the smaller size, the body is more stronger that the MINI's. It will have structural A pillar and C pillar. They are probably the most difficult things for me to build in the whole car. Front end: In fact, the motivation of the MOC is the idea of the face building. I tried to build a 75th anniversary edition here. All the things that I have so far: The size of tail light is little too big and it won't light up as the head light. Last but not least: As part of the iteration building process, another version is being built at the same time: The color scheme will be like this, of course, I need some more orange pieces...

Here is remake of the last of the first wave of Blacktron-I. This is the Blacktron Renegade 2.0- based on set 6954. All of my remakes have interchangeable cockpits, thrusters and modules just like the originals. I liked the original because it truly was a unique design- not symmetrical. There were no other lego space sets designed like this, at least until Star-Wars. At some point in the future, I may make the message intercept base and the alienator.
