Ciapasty posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHi everyone! So, during christmas I had a lot of free time and decided it's time for another attempt at build a supercar. I've chosen Lancia Beta Monte Carlo. Mainly because the body is not round. Well, at least not very round and the car looks good. Let's get to the technical details: - The engine is on the back, and it has a rear wheel drive. It's R4 engine (4 cylinders in a row) mounted crosswise. - McPhersson suspension on both axles. - 5+R gearbox - aaaand.. nothing more out of the ordinary What I'd like to have in it is: - Full independent suspension, of course McPhersson (with at least little geometry) - Full RC - at least 3+R gearbox - fake R4 engine mounted crosswise (that would look cool) Now, my hands made this thingy : Some commentary is needed. It's full RC, as you can see. It drives pretty neatly with two L motors, but skips one tooth in some gear at third gear (only one! and only when driving forward). Also it's Piterx's desing (http://p-lego.blogspot.com/2013/01/lego-rc-sequential-gearbox-3r.html). It's small, compact and functional. I'd like to see it with Servo Motor, because it's easy to miss gears... A bit of research (first result on google ) led to this beast http://www.doublebrick.ru/blogs/jackson/4-h-stupenchataya , but I'd have to order some parts to assemble it. It's a bit smaller than Piterx's and there is nothing sliding out of gearbox. Also, Servo This may even make some space for, now absent, fake engine. The suspensions is a combination of nicjasno's McPhersson and Sheepo's MPS. The second battery pack is a bit redundant, but I just couldn't fit one in, to have a symmetry. They have to be disassembled, because they take space where chairs should be I'd like to fit one on the back, but it's too tall.. Same problems on front. That's something to think about, and experiment. The chassis falls a bit short on stiffness, but a good bodywork should fix it. If anyone have an idea how I could make this gearbox and engines more compact, feel free to comment! I'd like to hear what you think about it
