  1. Hello all, Today I present my newest MOC: a c model of the 24 Hours Race Car, a Baja 1000 Buggy based off Agrof's Class 1 Unlimited Buggy. It has independent suspension, HoG steering, a seat, lights, and custom stickers. I created the stickers by copying the ones that came with the set, printing them on sticker paper, and cutting them out. The steering has a little bit of toe-in, but it works fine. I also used tires and wheels that didn't come with the set to make it look cooler. Here are some more pics of the WIP stage and how it looks now: Please tell me what you think and have a great day! Edit : 1 more picture.
  2. Dear moderators, please rename this topic to [MOC] Trophy Truck "Double Trouble" Hi everybody! Video is available, enjoy and comment! Here comes double trouble. Twin powered double trouble True liftarm energy! This is my new Moc. And it is ready: I am working on photo/video. UPDATE Here is some photos and info while you wait for video. Specs: Soft long travel suspension. Front independent with postive caster Rear live axle with built in Buggy motors. Rear wheel drive Self made stickers Tires RC4WD Dirt Grabber 1.55 (74 мм) - thats a copy of real BF Goodrich AT tires Spare tire RC4WD Mickey Tompson Baja MTZ 1.55 (83 мм) Weight is 1100 gr Electrics: Steering SERVO, Flying Propulsion 2x Buggy motors Fueled by 2xLiPo 3xLED lights Controlling thru 2xSBrick Internal space is filled with electronics. Unfortunately there is no free space for cockpit. Love this suspension, its articulation is great for me. I am happy seeing how it works) Suspension travel is about 4L. I will drop down and show it on video later. You know, LEGO suspension is always jerky, so you cant make big mocs drive straight, especially when it is fast and big. Positive caster helps to return wheels in center postition and fights with steering system backlash. It also makes shock absorbers work smoother and softer, IMHO. I dont like demonic "Monster" theme that is everywhere now...but this is good) Very good and realistic tires. Sad that there is no similar proportions tires in LEGO assortment. These are 75 mm with wide almost equal to medium 43 mm racing wheel. Spare tire is another type, cause I dont have 5-th Dirt Grabber. These 83 mm tire also fit in the arches, but they are bigger and harder for LiPos to rotate without stress... Model is driving fast enough for its weight and even drift donuts indoor, but outdoor shows the the weakest part - LiPo. I should try to lock differential thermistor for insane driving. After "baja" outdoor drive I replaced all damaged wheel axles and going to film its indoor's donuts and at asphalt outdoor to reach maximum speed. I hope it can reach at least 10 km/h. So "why double trouble"? - it is hard to fuel buggy motors. And here we have double of them. Here is full photo album http://www.bricksafe...rm8/BajaTruckDT
  3. Hello! I would like to present my first MOC, which i was tempted to build since a while. I was always more a "fan" of Class 1 buggies ( https://en.wikipedia...i/SCORE_Class_1 ) over Baja trucks, and I also couldn't find any LEGO versions of them, so i decided to build... and failed, built again, and failed..., built again, and so on... The long travel independent suspension with driving was really a challange, finally I found a solution, which works... kinda. I reached my goal, to make this thing move, but I must admit, the driving performance is poor, as the suspension arms are still not rigid enough, so the rear wheels start to lean. It moves, but not what i would call: clear run. Still, i thought, maybe it is worth to share, because the rest of the car is OK. I also would like to inspire others to build such MOCs, i would be happy to see more (and better performing) unlimited buggies! Building instruction (V3): here And now... the pictures (edit: no more video will be made, lack of patience and knowledge) - fixed: EDIT: as updated version is available, old pics and video removed. Pre version pics added. V0 - sketch model: V1 model with XL motors - not really good performance... V2 model with L-motors: Update: V3 is ready - see page 2.
  4. it'll be so nice to finally be able to work on something else for a change... btw this is really a show model so don't expect crazy performance. here's another one. thank zux for it
  5. Hi all Here is ICON FJ Baja edition. Well, actually this is Toyota Land Cruiser FJ, but in real life there is almost nothing common between them, except design. While designing first Toyota FJ in 2013-2014, I found many clear pictures of what is called ICON FJ. After my searches of high quality blueprints did not find success, I wrote to ICON / TLC, and was surprised by instant answer form CEO and designer of ICON cars - Jonathan Ward. He can't help me with blueprints, but it was nice to meet him. After meeting with ICON cars closer, I fell in love with ICON values. I decided to do some of ICON models after classic FJ. ICON is boutuqe-garage that recover Land Cruisers and produces small quantities of hand made restomods (or modified classic cars). Garage is situated in California. Final products are not cheap, usually from 100k $. And you should wait for your model for 1-1,5 years. One more fact: Jonathan Ward and his garage reputation grew so big, so he became consultant for Toyota, an even Mr. Toyoda asked him to build first driving prototypes of Toyota FJ Cruiser, that was produced till 2016. ICON FJ baja - is not the only FJ in ICON model line. They have "classic" trims that are very utility vehicles: pickup FJ45, long wheel base 4-door 6 seat FJ44, middle WB FJ43 and short FJ40. Baja - is trim that is possible only for FJ40 and FJ43. But there is nothing impossible - ICON can do everyhing you want, except crocodile leather and diamond decoration. Utility and functionality only. LEGO model have some details that match real vehicle. Custom stickers, color palette of BAJA trim, rollcage, interior details, mirrors, roof lights, front bumper. Front axle is modified - now it is 4 link triangulated. No pan-hard here. Rear suspenison is 3 link with pan-hard. In fact, real model also was with pan-hard int he beginning, and after some time they moved to multilink supsended axles. No leaf spring at Real vehicle - only coilovers, so LEGO shock absrobers are realistic this time (comparing to my classic FJ40 that should be with leafs). . winch is not included for this type of bumper, but you can modify it and there is still free space for 2x extra motors in the chassis Model was finished far ago, but I thought how to present it more interesting: not only for LEGO fans, but also for 4x4 fans, who never have experinece with LEGO. Presentation is the cover for Fifth Gear TV show with similar scenario and original soundtrack. more photos http://www.bricksafe...m8/icon-fj-baja AND here is ORIGINAL video Thanks for watching
  6. Hello all, I present to you my newest MOC, a trophy truck, called Firestorm. I started this project recently, and decided to share it on EB. It is still a work in progress, so not everything on the truck is final. Any comments and suggestions are welcome. The model has: adjustable caster angle (thanks for the idea Sariel), connected independent rear trailing arms, a Servo for steering, and 2 L-motors for drive. I am also working on 2 other chassis that are still in development.
  7. This is our first attempt to organize this type of event (unfortunately only 5 members). Here are several models of the participants: This is heir to Black 13 And our track (with jumps ) Repairing)) The video will be , but not soon. I hope you like it)
  8. This MOC was an idea that i had revisited after a year. I originally made the chassis to be a stand alone model, but then I added a very simple body. The bodywork is not modeled after any buggy in specific. Specs: -2 XL motors -1 servo -1 receiver -1 aaa bat-box -RWD And the two XL motors, one for each wheel, they are not connected. Any feedback would be dearly appreciated.
  9. Hello everyone! My new creation is a big scale Baja Truck. For the first time, I used two SBricks for better control. Weight is 1920g. It is almost the same as gsia17's awesome Trophy Truck. Since I do not have RC buggy motor, I had to build it using PF motors. Honestly body color is not the best. I just have many red #3 connectors and wanted to use white 19L softaxles. I think it is easier to build it in all white. And using stickers will make it look better. (Though that's not my way:) This Truck is powered by two 8878 rechargeable battery boxes, and propelled by four L motors geared 1:1. Two for each side of rear wheel. Left side of drivetrain is connected to fake V8 engine. Steered by Servo motor, which is connected to steering wheel. Two pairs of LEDs are put behind the front lights. Adding more LED for roof light bar is possible. I tried to make suspension movement like real Trophy Truck. Front module including independent suspension is connected to main chassis at positive caster angle. Rear suspension is solid axle with long trailing arms. Front suspension travel is about 5 studs long, and rear is 7 studs. It was challenging to achieve proper driving speed on bumpy ground using PF motors. The result was not the best, but was acceptable to me. Sbricks did their job so well. As expected, some parts in drivetrain got worn. Especially knob wheels. While I was shooting the video for two hours, they did not affected driving performance. So far they just made noise which is heard in the video. But someday they will certainly be damaged too much and need to exchange. EDIT: I have fixed the problem of knob wheels. Improved drivetrain doesn't damage any gears. :thumbup: Building instructions and more pictures: https://photos.google.com/collections Rebrickable: https://rebrickable....uck-with-sbrick I hope you like it!
  10. Hello everyone! I want to show you my MOCs. My first successful project is a Rallycross car. Rear-wheel drive by two L-motors, opening doors and hood , and a detailed cockpit . The model has already dismantled , there are only pictures. https://pp.vk.me/c62...ihPWp7O4agM.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62..._rec4h9q5wU.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...OoJ932OSU_8.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...86qu_VzpQNk.jpg And my last project is somewhere between Class 1 unlimited buggy from Grof Peter (front suspension and general form) and Baja Trophy truck from Madoca. That's why I named my model "truggy" (truggy is a portmanteau of the words truck and buggy). These two models have inspired me. https://pp.vk.me/c62...j6iB9_qFSAA.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...RXOzREj-ysc.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...5GVmMvlGmfE.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...vXKh5iihnog.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...vTEImVfbxmM.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...H6o537Qw5tI.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...-J0gjUVRX3E.jpg Creating a movie is in full swing, and more pictures are coming soon! P.S. Sorry for my bad English, from Russia with love!
  11. Hi all, Here's the first moc from my side to present here. As the title says, it's a Trophy Truck, which is a known phenomena by now I guess, seeing all the technic trophy trucks appearing lately Mine however, is supposed to be a little different from the rest, since I like a small technical challenge. I let the pictures speak for themselves first: Trophy truck WIP by Thomas Joling, on Flickr The first mock-up with the initial design ideas visible: pneumatic suspension, 5 RC motors for propulsion. Proportions were out of sinc though; Trophy truck WIP 2 by Thomas Joling, on Flickr Pneumatic suspension discarded to be added again later on. Fixed the proportion issue by shortening the middle part. The front RC unit is now to high up and to much upfront to be properly hidden by any bodywork. The steeringoutput of the unit couldn't be connected to the gearrack either, so a servo had to be put underneath the unit, raising it even more. As it turned out later on, the RC units output wouldn't have been powerfull enough to make the thing steer anyway, due to the combination of the large caster angle on the front wheels and the weight of the unit itself. The large caster angle is achieved by tilting the whole suspension backwards. This was also the reason why the steeringoutput of the rc unit couldn't be connected to the steeringgear. Anxious to try if 2 rc units pack enough punch to power 5 rc motors together, I let the aesthetic issue of the front rc unit for what it was, figuring I could solve that later, and put the thing on the street. Turns out rc units are designed to power 2 rc motors, THAT'S It. The 5 motors caused some unexplainable behaviour from the rc units (sometimes it seemed like one of the units couldn't make up its mind whether it should drive forwards or backwards, regardless of me giving the signal to drive forwards ). This stuttering has caused some broken U-joints in the meantime. This made me try out different driveshaft designs, including springs to keep the darn thing in place; no success either Eventually I found that 2 POOP U-joints together with an extendible axle made of a portal axle hub and wedged belt wheels worked the best without having to use non-lego parts. Now I could definitely see 5 rc motors were really to much for the rc units; the thing could bearly start up without the power shutting down, and once rolling it could only just surpass normal walking pace (instead of ). I decided it would be best to remove 1 rc motor. This would improve reliability, (hopefully) performance and because I could build the middle part more compact, it would improve the aesthetics as well; the front rc unit could be moved backwards and lower down. I put on some unimog tires on 41999 rims for that actual trophy truck feel I turned the units and battery on, put the truck on the ground and slowly moved the joystick forward, and.... nothing! Apparently I already drained two sets of batteries while testing before (i bought them new) so I now have to buy new batteries before continuing.When I've done that, the story will continue
  12. Hi everyone, Last night I finished building my entry into the TC5 contest. It's a Baja SAE racer, with a few improvements. It combines the 9392 Quad Bike and the 42021 Snowmobile. If you're not familiar with this type of car, here's a picture of one in action: And here's the Technic version - with a matching number: Bonus accessory - Car Jack Leftover parts:
  13. So here it is, my Baja Truck: It's good for indoor and outdoor use, and was built in about a day or so. Uses an L motor, Servo motor, Rechargeable battery box, and V2 receiver. More info and pics at my website. http://legotechnicunimog123.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/img_5869.jpg
  14. Hi everybody, Here is my light remote controlled buggy motor powered trophy truck:) More photos and description in my blog.
