Chilly_Productions posted a topic in LEGO Star WarsI am leaving the LEGO Star Wars forum due to spoilers, I haven't heard any yet, but I'm still being careful. Are you taking a break from the Star Wars forum as well?
Lego Luctor 544 opens a dutch 35-year business anniversary!
896gerard posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingDear eager eurobricks readers, After my Luctor adventure (see http://mocpages.com/moc.php/414168), I thought the story was all over and that it would dust away in a corner, yellowing faster than a ripening banana. However, the company that I sold it to asked me if it could open their 35-year business anniversary by driving through a polystyrene wall! They didn't prepare me for the terror that was coming.... Nearly crushed a one-year priceless Lego creation! But what a good use of a vehicle to give it one last appearance before it dusts away in the history books! Enjoy the video! (in Dutch, sorry...) More videos to get you informed about the Luctor: More about the Luctor itself (this video has already sometime ago been posted here) Can you think of a bigger reward for building a Lego MOC?
10221 SSD and broken parts ...
samlr posted a topic in General LEGO DiscussionHello everybody, I just decided to clean my Super Star Destroyer and guess with what I ended up ? It my first broken parts in 25 years ... Is it a known problem ? A solved problem ? Something I did wrong ? Did someone else face the same problem ? Thank you ! SamLr
I managed to break two 12t single-bevel gears in 3L differentials before concluding that trying to use them with an ungeared XL motor really was a bad idea. My question is, how much torque can those gears take (in the 3L differential) before breaking? It's clearly somewhat less than the maximum torque produced by the XL motor, since my gears broke when I was powering the motor with the 7V rechargeable battery and the dial on the battery was (I think) turned to just below the maximum setting. Will two L motors break the bevel gears? Both the official stats and Philo's site show the L motors as having just under half the torque of the XL (though they list different absolute values). On a related note, will the gears survive more torque in an old-style 4L differential when two half-bushes and a fourth bevel gear are added to reinforce them? Thanks!
