I built the first version of AE86 in 2012. Since that time, many new parts have been made. It is the time to improve my first version. I hope you will like it.

Hello, May be only youngest readers don't know this car from middle of 80's. Some sources tell that Toyota Sprinter Trueno/Corolla Levin AE86 is the first drifting car, thanks to Keiichi Tsuchiya. And Initial D is world known japanese animation film about drifters (I have never watch it). That's a small model with small 37 mm wheels from 42048 cart racer was built for indoor fun. Because Buggy motors are too fast for small indoor cars, i decided to build this one with L motor - optimal for small models torque/speed. I also added LED just for the video. Car is so simple, so I decided to be more creative in video presenation, than in model itself. Scale is small, so it does not look realistic in terms of proportions and forms - too squared. As I said, it is driven by one L motor with gearing: 36-12 and then 14-14 with old style differential. Steering motor is Servo. Control thru Smart Brick. And Fuel by small LiPo block. Car can also work with IR receiver with the same performance. Model is decorated by self made stickers. There is also modification of Sbrick. I joined black down and white top + added Trueno and Initial D stickers. just for fun with little a hope of small boost in performance. But that was useless. There is a place only for one seat. And LEGO Belville male doll take driver's position. To say the truth, model was built for my son, because he can't handle Buggy motor powered models. And I planned this model fast from the start. I also have 2 beta versions of this car. One is with one RC buggy motor. You can see how it performs in my Buwizz Prototype 2 video year ago. And one more body using large 43 mm wheels instead 37 to reach faster speed with....2x RC buggy motors. But this is just a sketch. Larger wheels need rework of body for larger arches and complex steering system to save front arches from hypersizing. More photos https://vk.com/album177639081_246152710 p.s. Interesting fact. My first car in 2005 was Toyota Corolla Levin/Sprinter Trueno. Unfortuntely this was a modern AE111 version (2000) with front wheel drive. In fact 1.6L engined corolla chassis under the 2-door "sport" exterior. Most of all I loved it's doors without frames, like in "big" premium coupe cars:)
Hello everybody! First of all I'm new to this forum so Hi everybody :) For past 2, or 3 years I was playing with making best rc car from lego. I have made a lot of projects of random cars. It starts when I realize that I can plug PF small motor to my receiver from remote controlled helicopter. Yeah this project will not include traditional PF IR control or something along those lines. And also I'll probably customize some parts so if anyone is offended by stuff like this, just don't be too harass for me :) So, plan is to make lego drift car. Yup actual RWD drift car that slides like every other rc cars (okay maybe a bit sloppyer). My inspiration here is Toyota AE86. I started making chassis: It was actually hard to figure out. I needed to make pretty big steering angle, and good way to control it. Also I modified pf small motor, by replacing dc motor in it for much stronger, and faster one. This motor needs gear reduction (I find 1:9 works the best), so I made small simple "gearbox" behind that seat. In the back, we have live axle with "welded" diff :) I also swap springs with Technic hoses for stiffness. It's only for tests, if I like it I'll probably do the same in front. Everything will came out after tests, but I'm currently waiting for tires. This is the steering angle that i end up with. It's not ideal(yeah I would like even more angle), but It will work for this build. That's all of my progress so far. Everything still is a prototype, I'll probably end up changing a lot. I also hope that I have enough parts to finish this build. If you have any questions feel free to ask them. I'd love to hear some feedback from you. Take care everybody!
