  1. Whats up everybody, hope y'all are doing well. I would like you to meet this little Godzilla of mine This car was built with the car scene in "Wangan Midnight" in mind: Modified cars steetracing on the Wangan Highway, where everything is about top speed. The car's engine has been converted to a bigger single turbo for better top speed and improved cooling, a vented hood and bigger intercooler setup for improved cooling, bucketseats and a weld-in rollcage. And of course the little lip on the trunk and spoiler and a massive flamespitting cannon exhaust pipe. Obviously I used quite a few Non-LEGO pieces here and there to achieve the desired look. Features: working RB26DETT fake engine (the second "T" should be removed tho because this car has a single turbo conversion) 6speed AWD manual transmission with "Safeshift" system HoG steering with moving steering wheel Independent suspension all around Opening hood and trunk Opening doors with locking mechanism Check out Sariels awesome Model Scaler tool, it helped me a ton once again: http://scaler.sariel.pl/ Specs: scale: 1:8 length: 56 cm width: 24 cm height:16 cm Weight: 2.8kg Piece count: estimated 2500-3500 What everybody wants to see in this forum: I tried to keep as much of the transmission visible from below as possible. I know this pic doesn't do the engine bay justice, but its all I have now. The body is amazingly rigid thanks to the functional weld-in rollcage. And a nice group pic with my 2 previous projects: A few more pics: I hope you enjoyed reading this, leave your thoughts in the comments below ;) Gray Gear
  2. Hello together, what is going on in this year´s supercar battle?? It seems to get quite intense and I really enjoy it to see so many posting outstanding MOCs here with a clearly visible improving standard requirements put on supercars. So let me give you some more: the LaFerrari. Not all people like Ferrari, some prefer non- PF supercars and some are tired of red supercars at all. But honestly - I don´t care ;-). Hopefully the Lambo fraction will like it anyway too;-). I think everyone knows the real car, if not – visit the homepage, so I don´t need to describe it. Its concept is different, innovative and unusual as my MOC was designed to be as well. The project started about 1 year ago. After the LaFerrari´s appearance at the Geneva Motor Show this mind blowing car was my next one to recreate. Not in 1 day of course. The goals for the final product were set high from the beginning. The main objectives were: - increase speed using 2 XL motors + 2 additional L motors, similar to the 2. engine in the real car - best possible functionality with full range PF equipment - “gapless” bodywork concept - a fair tribute to the real car by keeping a strict scale The resulting facts: – 1:10 scale; L62 x W30 x H15 studs (49 x 24,5 x 12 cm); 1-1,5 stud ground clearance – weight: 2,5 kg – parts amount: 2.000 + (including 52 Technic panels) – independent wheel suspension – RWD with 2 XL motors + 2 L motors – servo steering coupled to working steering wheel + working rear spoiler + rear diffusor winglets – remotely openable wing doors driven by 1 M motor – manual door selector (screenwiper) – self engeneered working 12 cylinder fake engine – flash lights mode - pole reverser coupled to engine – separate manual coupling for engine & pole reverser – manually openable rear hood – 6 pairs LED lights engaging by 2 different functions & circuits – control by 2 sets control units & IR V2 receivers – powered by 2 LiPo batteries with easy charge access The car is to 97% finished now and has some flaws, so another year left to finish it ;-). But this weekend I will try to make a YT video of it as it is to show the functions. There is also a small LDD file for the drivertrain available on my brickshelf account (folder not public today). I won´t make instructions for the car, maybe only complete the LDD for the chassis and the functions only. Enjoy! brunojj1
  3. My employment can often be intense during the fall, and this past fall was no exception. After an intense period, I turned to LEGO to rest well over the holidays. I wanted to start a comprehensive project during this time to let my mind wander down a creative outlet. I seem to cycle through tractors, cars, and Unimogs, so this time I was ready to try another car. I am a proponent of the sports sedan, in life and in builds, so that was an easy decision. It has been some time since I have built a 1:10 car, and since then the new 42110 wheels are now available. This would be a center feature of the build to see if I could take advantage of the new offset in both suspension and steering. I hope the blue sports sedan will look somewhat sporty, but not like the current BMW faux sporty. When I build I always set the dimensions first, based on the wanted features. The car will be 50-52 studs long with a 33 stud wheelbase. Body width is 23 studs, with a fender width of 25 at the front and 27 studs at the rear. "System Builds" have become a recent theme of my builds in that a center build can easily accommodate changes or additions easily. I wanted this to be the central theme of the sedan; more than a modular build the system will allow for flexibility and interchangeability. Thus, there are two categories of features to the sedan. System Modules Transmission/Rear Suspension Front Suspension/Steering Engines Floorpan Unibody Seats Doors/Hood/Trunk Features (Options) Independent Suspension Steering: HOG/Wheel Working Fake Motor (V8, I6, F6, Hybrid) Working Transmission (4S Manual, 4S Sequential) (RWD/AWD) Removable Body Seating for Four Opening Hood, Trunk, Doors After setting some hard points, I had a general idea. I had hoped that I could have a front suspension module and a rear suspension module, but already at the above stage, it was becoming clear that separating the transmission from the rear suspension would result in too many structural compromises. Above you can see the general idea for the front suspension "bathtub" that will connect to the rear suspension/transmission module. The engine will drop in, and the lock in between the two modules. The HOG is placed above the dashboard with steering controls traveling under the engine. This bathtub will hold a V-8, an I-4, and an I-6. I very much want to have the I-6 engine be part of the final build, but it is causing a lot of problems. It's just soooooo long. In fact it and the supporting structure come within 2 studs of the front of the car. I may have to go all Audi, and change it to a I-5 which may be just the right amount of weird. Above you can see, generally, how it will come together. This version includes the sequential transmission module, and the AWD front module. The AWD module is the hybrid version. This "bathtub" is locked in that the engine is chosen for you: you get the Flat 6 engine with two fake electric motors, one for each side of the front axle, that function as an electric assist. More is coming... Next I'll work on the structural floorpan, and a unibody that will drop on to all modules and give additional structural support. My builds are taking too long these days, so I am going to put a due day of May 22, 2021 for this project. Maybe that will incentivize it's timely completion.
  4. This is my alternate model for the 42125 Ferrari 488 set - Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Scale: 1:10 Parts: 1181 Size: 45L, 20W, 12H, cm Weight 988g - Independent suspension - Working steering wheel - Fake engine - Opening doors with limiters - Opening front part of the bonnet You can find the building instruction on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-66207/paave/ferrari-f12-berlinetta/#details
  5. a little while ago I started making a Pagani Zonda c12 in 1:10 scale here are some pictures on brick safe bc I can't figure out how to put large-sized pictures in here https://bricksafe.com/pages/MY1/pagani-zonda-c12. anyways it has a modified version of @Leviathan's 5+r manual gearbox, the one in his Jannarelly design one. independent suspension on all four wheels and I plan on implementing openable doors and rear clamshell bonnet. suspension is inspired from Legos recent 42115. I am planning on using the standard lego wheel 15038 in the back and the new Land Rover wheels in the front bc I think it gives the car a subtle wide to less wide look. I have not figured out how to do a shifting mechanism yet but I'm thinking about going with a ball joint lever similar to @Gray Gear's cars
  6. Hello everyone! Today I'd like to show you the model that I've been working on for more than two years, it's my first MOC in this scale that is actually close to being finished. It was rebuild from scratch dozen times and still requires bodywork. The MOC is LaFerrari in 1:8 scale: Origially I had a lot of ideas and great ambitions, but over time I realized that I just don't have enough skill to make everything I wanted. So current version has following features: independent suspension; 2 L motors for driving; Servo motor for steering; working steering wheel; 8 speed sequential gearbox driven by M motor; spacious interior with low seats positioning; powering with standard LEGO PF. Proportions: width - 29 studs; height - 15-16 studs; length - about 70 studs, don't know yet. Originally I wanted to use bigger wheels but then I stopped on 68.8. The thing is that front section of the car are too low so there won't be any place for arches with bigger wheels. Battery box is located in front of the car because everything behind seats is one huge gearbox. It just lays on its own weight and will be covered on the top with something black. This way you won't see most of gray and light gray parts through the bonnet. Distance between seats is only 3 studs and every seat is 7 studs wide. There's no free space between them - only a few hidden cables there. This is how it looks without seats: Top and bottom views: The whole core of the car is basically done. It's pretty sturdy and doesn't bend when you hold it. In current state it has about 1600 pieces. The most challenging part of the build at this point is a gearbox. It had to be very compact because car is so low. In this LDD file you can investigate all gears: https://bricksafe.com/files/ibessonov/wip-moc-laferrari-technic-2018---1/8 speed gearbox.lxf Here are some renders of gearbox without stepper. Green axles are input from motors. There are 3 clutches here and they give 8 unique combinations of their engagement. L motors are slowed down significantly. This is because they are not powerful enough to make this car fast. Here's a stepper mechanism that I used to move all 3 clutches: Green things should be connected with white rubber bands, they hold axles in fixed 90-degrees positions. There's a strong resemblance with 42056 Porshe's gearbox here, I know it. That model helped a lot with the inspiration. My plan is to finish bodywork but it's the hardest thing for me. This is the exact reason why I'm creating this topic - to get help/critique while I'm finishing the model. LaFerrari has quite complex shape and I should have chosen something more simple for my first MOC. But I already spent way too much time so I have to finally finish it. Leave your thoughts here, I'm very curious of what you might say. Thank you!

    Ferrari F40

    I have to do the video, edit and take some pics more but I think there won´t be more big changes . This is the manual one and I will do the LDD instructions for it, I think it will be for free, the RC one was for me for fight with the little space . The car is completely modular, trunk, bonnet, doors, back fender, roof, sides of the bodywork, gearbox, fake engine, rear axle, seats and chassis with the front axle. It has independent suspension with functional doors, trunk, bonnet and retractable headlights, 5 speed and reverse gearbox (Tyler Reid style) and a V8 fake engine. This is an appetizer as my style, I will update with new information. I hope you like.

    [MOC] Ferrari 308 GTSi

    Hi, I'd like to present to you my latest MOC, the Ferrari 308 GTSi: 4 wheel independent suspension with anti-roll bars (the yellow parts in the picture below:) Front suspension with realistic setup (kingpin inclination, Ackermann, caster) Pop-up headlights (operated with the lever in the dashboard) 3+R gearbox (with shifter in center console) Detailed V8 engine Opening doors Opening trunk Opening hood (with button in the dashboard) Adjustable chairs (forward/backward + tilting backrest) Removable rooftop I build this car in commision with an exclusivity agreement. So there will be no building instructions available for this model. If you are interested in commisioning a model yourself please send me a message or an email: jjottens (at) onsmail.nl (replace the (at) with @) Comments and questions are most welcome as usual. More pictures can be found on my Flickr page. Leg godt, Jeroen Ottens
  9. Hello Magnum, Ferrari and Speed Champions fans, this targa topped 1984 Ferrari 308GTSi Quattrovalvole (pictures 1 and 6) was made famous by the television series Magnum, p.i. in which the series' lead, Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck) drove the car around Oahu for eight seasons while on his investigations, from 1980 to 1988. Several 308 GTS cars were used, a new one for each season, most being auctioned off after filming and all with the license plate ROBIN 1. The berlinetta version of this model is called Ferrari 308GTB Quattrovalvole (pictures 2-5 and 7-8). The design inspiration of this model came from a Ferrari 308 Matchbox which I received as a child. Building instructions are available on the following links: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-64110/_TLG_/magnum-pi-ferrari-308-gts-gtb-quattrovalvole/#details or https://www.mocsmarket.com/lego-mocs/instructions-moc-magnum-p-i-ferrari-308-gts-gtb-quattrovalvole/ They are a studless builds in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a sleek models which are as accurate as possible in this small scale. Only two stickers are used per model: the rectangular Ferrari logo, and the vehicle registration plate, to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds. My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. The models contain lots of details: for example the emblematic air vents on the hood (black on GTS and red on GTB), the front bumper with the turn signal lights, the tilted front grill, the rear three quarter window with black cover, the turn signal lights on the front side, the black stripe on the sides, the side-view mirrors, the tiltable seats etc.. Maybe the most challenging one was the iconic rear side with the vehicle registration plate, here there is a half stud offset. I tried to fill every unecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for two minifigures. I suggest to use small hairs. Without the seats and the two interior tan tiles minifigures with bigger hairs can be used too if they are leaned back.

    [WIP] Jiotto Caspita mk1

    Started a new build, hope you'll like it Looking for every kind of suggestion
  11. Redesigned my earlier Lamborghini Aventador J into a manual version. After removing those PF parts, it does give me more wiggling room, but squeezing a gear box and a fake engine is still a challenge. I have to use various half-stud approach to connect things firmly. Here is what it is: More info including technic details can be found at https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-62932/Lego__Bee/112-lego-technic-lamborghini-aventador-j-roadster/#details Thanks

  13. Hi everyone, this is my long term build: the Tommy kaira ZZII. My favourite car ever; maybe you remember it from Gran Turismo because of its power to weight ratio, its handling or its looks, but it actually exists (in 1 prototype). This build aims to be fully functional, with mechanical components replicated as close as possible: suspensions layout, chassis, engine (not a proper one because of size), exhaust, steering... A chat with designer Kaira helped figure out the rear suspensions layout, while the rest of the underpinnings was understood thanks to the few chassis images on the internet. It's quite expensive to build so it'll take a long time, mainly because I've never went shopping for bricks on the internet before and I need to figure every possible way to keep the price down. The wheels are custom modeled but actually I'm going to fit the 911 GT3 RS ones to it. Images of the real thing: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?vanity=hg.hexgraphica&set=a.3702758483104313 Pics of the build:
  14. Hello everyone, Let me introduce ma latest creation, a Jannarelly Design 1 at 1:9 scale. Jannarelly is a French car manufacturer based on Dubaï : https://www.jannarellyfrance.com/histoire. We feel a lot of Cobra Shelby or Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa design inspiration. It is a Neo-retro style : New materials on old shape ! SPECIFICATIONS : - Dimensions in cm (L x l x h) : 44 x 20 x 12 - Dimensions in studs (L x l x h) : 54 x 25 x 18 - Ground clearance: 1,3 studs - Weight : 1,3kg - 2 000 parts FEATURES : - 5+R gearbox - HOG (at the back) + working steering wheel - Openable cockpit canopy - Transverse V6 engine - Independant suspensions - Front axle: Ackerman steering, caster angle, steering radius : 55cm - Openable doors, front trunk and engine cover - And a cool stripe ! On picture below we can see elementary features : The HOG is connected to a gear reduction 8t/24t to enhance wheels rotation. Front axle has a positive caster angle. I re-use @T Lego one from La Ferrari : https://bricksafe.com/pages/T_Antonie/ferrari-laferrari The cockpit canopy can rotate to see interior details and give a better access to gearbox lever : The gearbox is a 5+R architecture like Shelby @Sheepo : https://www.sheepo.es/2013/10/ford-mustang-shelby-gt500-14.html. The main column is taken from @Charbel Volcano RS design. Ratios are : R - 1:134 1 - 2.1:1 2 - 1.67:1 3 - 1:1 4 - 1:1.33 5 - 1:1.667 Back 3D view below : Each driving ring (middle, left and right) has its own linkage (pink, green, blue). There is no "no back" system like @Gray Gear https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/177499-how-to-6speed-manual-transmission-with-safeshift-system/ or NK03 gearbox design because too big to fit in.

    [MOC] Ferrari Testarossa

    Hello Ferrari and Speed Champions fans, Ferrari Testarossa is a legendary supercar of 1980s. It is a two-door coupé from 1986 and it is the red version of the car from the TV series Miami Vice as the used Lego windscreen is not available with white decoration. Almost 10,000 Testarossas, 512 TRs, and F512 Ms were produced, making it one of the most-produced Ferrari models, despite its high price and exotic design. Building instructions are available on the following links: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-57875/_TLG_/ferrari-testarossa/ https://www.mocsmarket.com/lego-mocs/lego-instructions-ferrari-testarossa/ It is a studless build in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a sleek model which is as accurate as possible in this small scale. I minimized the use of stickers to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds. (Third picture shows the model without any stickers.) My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. The model contains lots of details: for example the emblematic side intakes with the bottom black stripe, the turn signal lights on the sides, the side-view mirrors, the front grill with the head lights, the iconic rear side with the vehicle registration plate. Maybe the most challenging one was the interior where the seat assemblies hold side panels too. I tried to fill every unecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for two minifigures. I suggest to use small hairs. Without the seats minifigures with bigger hairs can be used too if they are leaned back.

  16. Hi there everybody, since some of you asked for more WIP topics in the "Decreasing number of MOCs" topic, I thought I would take you along with my latest project, hopefully from start to finish. I wanted to build a drift car, and what other car ycould that be than the Nissan Silvia? deciding between S13, S14 and S15 was pretty easy, since pop up headlights are awesome. So I went for the most suitable model, the 180SX Type X. A quick search on google brought up this Blueprint. Not perfect, but good enough. Since this is a car with the classic FR layout I took the 6-speed manual transmission from my Nissan R32 GTR MOC and removed the AWD. I'ts running very smooth. After the pop-up headlights were completed I started modelling the front bumper. This bumper is really difficult, all the proportions are hard to recreate from bricks. I tried it like this, and while it is pretty accurate these stacked plates dont look very nice. Often it is better to choose the less accurate but better looking solution, so that's what I'll try next. I would love if someone could suggest a solution for the front lip that wraps all around the bottom of the bumper. It is 1.7 studs high and the angle does not want to match any solution I come up with. I know this does not look like much, but thats what happens when you look at the early stages of a MOC. I hope you enjoyed this, I'll try to keep you updated on my progress. Gray Gear

    KITT - Knight Rider

    Hello Knight Rider and Speed Champions fans, KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand) from the original TV series Knight Rider is one of the most famous fictional cars. It is a modified 1982 Pontiac Trans Am which is an artificially intelligent electronic computer module in the body of a highly advanced, very mobile, robotic automobile. It is a studless build in the original, 6 studs wide Speed Champions style and fits perfectly to the new City style cars too. Building instructions are available here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-52083/_TLG_/kitt-knight-rider/ More details: I wanted to create a sleek model which is as accurate as possible in this small scale. I minimized the use of stickers to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, and the last picture shows the car without any stickers. The model has space for one minifigure. The Michael Knight figure on the main picture is from the set 71286. One of the most challenging details was the front with the iconic red scanner bar and the rectangular white headlights. I made lots of versions and I think the actual one with some tricky build techniques is the best one. Simple black stickers were added to the side of the clear transparent elements on the sides to make visible the headlights only on the front side. The model contains lots of details: the circular fuel cap on the left side, the orange one and the red one turn signal lights on the sides, the side-view mirrors, the convertible roof, the small rear wing and the blue vehicle registration plate on the rear to which a custom sticker had been added. The steering wheel is modeled too, and three stickers are added to the dashboard to recreate some of its iconic elements. The wheels are built too and on my physical model the white circles between the wheel covers and the tires are made of a Lego rubber belt.

  18. This gearbox is an upgrade of my ultra compact 8-speed sequential gearbox. The 8-speed gearbox was nice but it was frustrating to know that the 2-speed gearbox took as much space as the 4-speed gearbox. I thought about transforming the 2-speed gearbox into a 2+N+R one. I had an idea about how to transform this gearbox but I didn't really think about how to activate the reverse and the neutral. Maybe by doing something with the knobs... I spoke with @Charbel and he gave me the idea to use the Bionicle parts I already used on my previous gearbox. Then I ended up with this: I used large frames as in the Lamborghini Sian. They make the whole gearbox stiff and now you have just to build a chassis arount the 'box! The neutral was extremely simple to do. See by yourselves: The reverse was more complex to create. For every foreward speed, the 2+N+R-speed gearbox rotates the 4-speed gearbox by the red 16t at the bottom. The reverse doesn't use the 4-speed gearbox, it uses the blue 20t at the top of the picture below: To engage the neutral and the reverse, I fixed two Bionible parts on the left knob. So they act as a smaller knob, with two teeth, and at a point 1/4 turn of the right knob makes the left knob rotate by 1/4 turn, whereas for all the foreward speeds, the left knob does 1/4 turn every turn of the right knob. Reverse engaged: Neutral: First: There is a stop not to shift from the 8th to the reverse. The engine and the gearbox wouldn't appreciate. The wheels have to be connected the the red axle and the engine to the grey one. It's possible to use this gearbox for a 4WD vehicle easily since the red axle goes through the gearbox. With this gearbox you don't have to use a 8-speed gearbox and a DNR one anymore, as in the Chiron or the Sian. It saves space, and you can't engage the 4th speed whereas you are in neutral - all the speeds shift into a logic order. I will make instructions when I have time!
  19. Hello everyone I want to show off my recent small scale build. The model uses 30.4x14 wheels, has Mini Piston V10 with a full size differential which needed to be shifted due to the size of differential body gear being more than the size of the wheels, working steering wheel and a knob on the roof, opening doors and fairly detailed interior and finally open'able engine cover. You can see detailed explanation on ideas platform (please support if you like it): https://ideas.lego.com/projects/2640e770-47e9-4c84-a68b-81578f7208dc Here's how the engine sounds: I'm going to build a red version this week as well. If there's enough interest on the ideas platform, I'll try to figure out how to release instructions. Also if you have any ideas on how to improve the body, especially the front lights and bumper, feel free to hit me with your ideas :)
  20. Hi everyone, this time I want to show you another work-in-progress MOC, but this one is more recent. The reason why I want to do this is quite obvious - LEGO releases their Lambo this year, and I am also aware of at least one Aventador MOC coming soon. We should have even more Lamborghinis, they are awesome and I can't wait to see these models. My version is a dark blue + white model in 1:8 scale with some basic functions: Steering with working steering wheel. Openable scissors doors. 7+R gearbox. Remote control using a single Control+ hub: 2 coupled XL motors for drive; L motor for steering; L motor to change speeds. This time I decided to build everything independantly and simultaniously. It actually helped me to become much more productive. I'll start with the bodywork. It's not completed and is built around a very crude carcass. I'm trying to concentrate on the shape only. There will be enough space on the inside, I'm taking this into account while building. As you see, it's about 60% completed. Front section is not done yet, but the back looks almost completed and I really like how it turned out. Reminds me a "snowboard glasses" a little (don't know how to call them but I'm sure you get what I mean): Of course, these gaps will have black background in the future and I will add some filler to them as well. Rear wing also looks completed, it might be my favorite part of the build, here you can see it from another side: Now I want to show a door closely. I tried to replicate scissors mechanism as closely as I could. First version used shock absorber and was way too big. The proble is that it has to be very close to the front wheel, it's pretty hard to do. Second version required 3 small rubber bands to hold door's weight. On the following photos you will see a third version. This is how it looks being closed: This is the first step of opening when you open it just like a regular car's door: And this is how it looks when you open it in a different plane. It holds itself locked with two rubber bands that you can see at the bottom: Here's a shot from the front with both doors opened. You can see that the door on the right has "old" design, I improved on it already: Next two pictures are showing caliper on the front wheel. I wanted it to be angled just like on the real car so I had to be creative: Yes, this is a sausage piece. Calipers on the rear will also be angled, but with more conventional build. I don't have it right now so the picture will be in one of the following updates. Now car's internals. Here you can see a gearbox and rear wheels. 3 motors are clearly visible. 4th motor will be in front of the hub. The idea is that L motor will change speeds by rotating by 180 degrees, this can be done programmatically rather then mechanically. But it doesn't mean that the build is simple, because it's not. I used only one of those new orange "wave selector" gears, everything else is basically a huge improvement over the gearbox from my LaFerrari MOC, but it's 1.5 times bigger because of that "reverse" speed I added. It's actually pretty fun that I managed to use a 40 tooth gear in this model. I guess I could use 36 + 2x28, but I don't have 28 tooth gears yet: Here's a view of the bottom. A huge con of the model can be seen here - it has no central diff, but still I expect all 4 wheels to be driven. On the other hand, I left a lot of holes so I can see gears turning: This construction is not rigid enough in several points, I think I will have to completely rebuild it and ensure that it is strong enough. It's already pretty smooth and if motors won't be able to handle the weight then I can play with the gear ratios from motors - there are dedicated places in the gearbox for this exact purpose. I hope that it will become a good model and you'll like it. Thank you!
  21. The American Club Racing (ACR) model was introduced in 1999, starting with the Viper GTS (Phase SR II). Exclusive 1 by lachlan cameron, on Flickr This model had suspension and engine enhancements focused on maximizing performance in road racing and autocross environments. Horsepower was bumped to 460 hp (370 kW) in these models, while torque increased to 500 lb·ft (678 N·m). Weight was reduced by over 50 pounds (23 kg) by stripping the interior and removing other non-essential items such as the fog lamps (replacing them with brake ducts). Dodge Viper ACR by lachlan cameron, on Flickr In an attempt to stay true to its heritage, I've left this beast without bells and whistles in the name of speed.It sport a front clam shell hood, opening rear trunk, and spring back doors. The real catch here is in the speed and options. Dodge Viper ACR by lachlan cameron, on Flickr This Viper packs 2x Buwizz 2.0 (with Ludicrous mode) that power this monster directly to 2x Buggy motors. The gearing is accessible and can be swapped for a higher or lower gear in minutes. Ratios avail: 1:1 and 1:1.7. This model also has many build options: 1. 1 or 2 buwizz / 1 or 2 Lipo / 1 or 2 Sbrick 2. 2 Buggy motor or 2 XL motor 3. Fully manual car (just remove the electronics 4. Swap out the engine on the fly for a new one! Dodge Viper ACR by lachlan cameron, on Flickr The Viper also has a rake to it that I also replicated. 1 stud off the ground at the front, 2.5 studs at the rear. Dodge Viper ACR- open hood by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Its been a pleasure playing with this car OUTDOORS (don't even think of play indoors, I smashed it over 10 times) and I hope you guys enjoy the video!

    [MOC] Supercar Gattiger

    This is the LEGO version of the main character of an anime broadcasted by the Italian Television in the '80s... I was a child at that time, and I desired a lot the toy related to the anime, but I never owned it... now, as an adult... I built it by myself! I know that this anime was broadcasted in few countries only, so I guess that the people from Italy will easily recognize it... but the people from other countries probably never seen it maybe! For those who doesn't know the anime: the Supercar Gattiger is a solar-powered vehicle composed by the union of five race cars. They run against the "Black Demons" team, to defeat their plan to get the full control of Solar power and rule the World. 2020-08-23_01-19-52 by Lorenzo Brovia, su Flickr I got inspiration from some pictures found on internet of the "real" toy... who had an easier interlocking system between cars than the anime... as happened in many robots anime at that time. Each car has its own "aerodynamic piece" in the rear part, who hides the interlocking system. as per the real toy, it's necessary to detach that piece to connect the cars and form the Gattiger. gattiger_1 by Lorenzo Brovia, su Flickr Some technical specs: the project was made in LDD and counts about 1300 pieces. The scale of the model is minifigure-size, so it's quite bigger than the original toy. The size once assembled is about 40x40 cm. All the cars are playable, and the same is when the Gattiger is assembled. it's quite sturdy, despite some fancy techniques used for the rear wheels of the side cars and the white-red sides with windows of the middle car. 2020-08-23_12-54-13 by Lorenzo Brovia, su Flickr To add feeling with the original anime, I created this graphic with the original logo... Guys, let me know if I raised up in you some old and almost forgotten memory! ;-)
  23. Hello guys, I haven't posted anythig here for a while. I have been working on this Nissan R32 GTR even before the Mazda RX-7 was completed. I was scared that I would not be able to accomplish a build worthy of wearing the legendary "Godzilla" name. Thats why I did not post any WIP Pictures earlier. But now I feel like the build has progressed enough that quitting is out of the question, and any obstacles have been cleared already. I am fairly pleased with the build now, but it was a long way to get here. I hope you like it too. Yes, I can get these wheels I used for the taillights in transparent red as well, dont underestimate the power of the dark side ;) The Car has an AWD system, hooked up to a 6-Speed manual transmission powered by the RB26 with a single turbo conversion. Sorry for the bad quality pics, black is really hard to photograph. I am looking forward to your comments, improvement ideas and whatever else in the comments. Stay safe out there. Gray Gear
  24. Hello everybody! This is the first MOC I present on Eurobricks. My most popular MOC yet is the 3 speed auto gearbox (https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-33711/lbrix/3-speed-auto-gearbox-overworked-version/?inventory=1#comments). But now to this gearbox: At first ask yourself this question: Which sense has a normal D-N-R gearbox in a manual technic car? It has no sense. It makes no difference if you are in the forward gear or in te reserve. But with this D-N-R gearbox it makes a difference, because if you are in the forward gear, you can not push the car backward and if you switch in the reserve gear, you can not push the car forward. If you want to build this gearbox into a technic car, you have to connect the grey connectors to the wheels and one of the black ones to the fake engine. For more information check out this MOC on rebrickable (maybe it is not approved yet): https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-47985/lbrix/alternative-d-n-r-gearbox/?inventory=1#comments No I wanted to ask you, what you think about this D-N-R gearbox? Here is an video of my gearbox:
  25. In 2017 the AMG company is celebrating its 50th jubilee - congratulations on this occasion! Now here is my tribute, although it wasn´t the main intention to build for that purpose. Back in 2015 we´ve had a fun project, the BMW M4 DTM which was echoed by fellows around here far more than I expected and it opened many opportunities for cooperation with other specialists to round up the MOC. Together with Lipko´s Audi RS5 DTM a Mercedes still was missing in the line-up of some collectors though. One of them, our dear EB fellow filus followed the idea strongly and thanks to his accompaniment we elaborated the AMG C63 DTM racecar of the 2015 season. The whole project turned out to generate more fun (and challenges) as assumed. To make everything more interesting, a lot more time has been invested than planned first and more diversity was created resulting in 2 different chassis – manual and PF. On top 2 different exchangeable liveries. The quality of the model was on priority and can be considered as far better than the quality of e.g. the BMW M4 DTM. Parts rarely fall off when the car meets bumps and walls. You can even lift the car by the roof without damaging anything. Testing both models with kids of all ages between 2 and 10 years showed some robustness and reliability above average. Thanks to all participants involved in the process! Custom stickers were provided by Jaap (Jaap Technic) again, who did a fabulous job, and these really made up the icing on the cake. Thorsten Spelz produced extraordinary detailed separate instructions for both chassis and both liveries which allows to choose the desired individual setup and color scheme. Sorry in advance that these can´t be offered for free, because too many careful efforts, costly parts and countless hours of work have gone into the project. Manual chassis: Most of the development has gone into the manual chassis. I had to try it once and I´m glad I managed to make a “simple” but fool proof shifting mechanism which relies on shock springs only. No rubber bands used and the shifting parts itself retract by gravity only (which doesn´t allow 10 shifts per second though, who cares). Especially the beautiful engine sound is a nice feature – btw it´s also a kind of gear indicator – after some time playing you can distinguish the actual selected gear by the different sound and resistance while pushing the car. A white 24-teeth gear has been installed between differential and gearbox, preventing gears from damage when pushed too hard – a bit similar to the 42056 Porsche setup ;-). - dimensions in studs (L/W): 61/25 - independent wheel suspension - 4 – speed gearbox - 2 manual shifters (up and down) and steering in comfortable position above the rear axle - working steering wheel - mini fake V8 engine RC chassis: Nothing special and no new big achievements here probably. Anyway I´m very satisfied how good all together works. The XL motor geared down 3:1 works flawlessly together with the L motor geared down by 5:3 ratio – absolutely no grinding at the differential between both motors which is another good indicator of efficiency. As you can see in the video, the cars´ speed is reasonable for indoor and is almost the same compared to the BMW (stronger) equipment. Comparison here: BMW is driven by 2 XL motors; gear reduction 3:1. - dimensions in studs (L/W): 61/25 - independent wheel suspension - remote driving and steering - LED lights - PF equipment: 1 XL motor + 1 L motor for drive, 1 servo motor for steering, 1 pole reverser, 3 LED pairs (2 front, 1 rear), 1 extension wire, 1 battery, 1 IR V2 receiver, 1 IR remote - SBrick compatible (replaces receiver, remote and pole reverser) Bodywork dimensions in studs: length 61 studs (without rear spoiler); width 25 studs (without mirrors); height 15,5 studs - openable doors - easily removable rear spoiler and engine hood - custom stickers corresponding the looks of the real cars - roll cage under the roof - Technic panels count: 51 “Silberpfeil” livery - #6 Robert Wickens The new orange parts from the 42056 set allowed replicating the distinguished color scheme of this nice livery. I like especially that the round shaped roof could be made using the 13x3 bowed panels. Unfortunately Silver beams and panels are not really available, so these parts have been made in white. The stickers with the particular energy tin make it very special IMO. “AMG” livery - #3 Paul di Resta The white/black color combo may seem nothing spectacular nowadays, but with the slight red accents and the stickers in particular it makes an equal counterpart to the other variant. The roof couldn´t be built the same way and its shape turned out a bit different, unfortunately the new 13x3 bowed panels, to be released in 2H in black color, were too far on the horizon during the design process. Anyway the overall parts availability is great and I guess this version will be the preferred option for most who want to rebuild it. And here the mandatory videos: More pictures can be seen at my bricksafe. Instructions and stickers are available. Enjoy and have fun !
