  1. Hi all, We are organizing a BuWizz Truck Trial event weekend with family picnic on june 9 - 10 You are all invited! More info here: https://buwizz.com/buwizz-truck-trial/
  2. I'm thinking of getting a Lego device that will give my models more power and allow me to control them outside and from long distance using my smartphone. As far as I am aware the best two options are BuWizz and SBrick, however I am not sure which option is best, as comparisons I have seen have never determined a clear winner. SBrick is way more affordable, more compact and seems to be popular in the Lego Technic community. I only learnt about BuWizz recently, it seems to generate an insane amount of power but it costs over twice as much as an SBrick and is bulkier, plus I already have 6 Battery Boxes and it would be a complete waste not using them. Of course they are both clearly better than the Official Lego PF IR Sensors I am currently using, which are god awful past a 2m range and are useless outside, however I would like to know people's thoughts, opinions and experiences to help me decide which is best value for money before I blow loads of cash on a toy. Currently I am leaning towards SBrick, but from what I've seen online, BuWizz looks like a viable option also. Cheers
  3. This started out as something called Speed Demon, but I renamed it Drift Demon after building the actual MOC and driving it. The bodywork didn't materialize, but the car did. This project made me realize how far I have to go before I can make a decent bodywork. Powered by: 2 L-motors geared up 3:1 1 servo motor for steering 1 BuWizz unit. The rear suspension is a dragged axle, and each side is mirrored at 180 degrees to save space. The L-motors move with the suspension. Front suspensions is independent. Here is the chassis, it has some elements missing that were added in the rear to stiffen up the frame: A shot from the underneath, although the actual build has some changes: And a video:
  4. Hi everyone, This is my first MOC to be published here on the forum: a small/compact rally hatchback. It is not a copy of an existing car, but the front is inspired by modern Audi's. The design parameters that I want to achieve include the following: Fast drivetrain Lots of torque (the car must be able to drive on tarmac, dirt and sand) An average scale of 1:12.5 Front and rear independent suspension Front and rear PF lights Servo steering with small turning radius Buwizz 2.0 to increase performance (located under the bonnet for better weightdistribution and easy acces) A light and rigid chassis Openable doors and bonnet A realistic/clean interior (no visible moters/wires/chassis beams) A gapless body, using rather pannels than beams Drift (on sand) It contains 100% LEGO parts (excpet BuWizz) with a total of 1178 parts. I am very happy with the result. Here are some pictures The Buwizz with easy acces... Clean interior... Openable glovebox... Rear suspension... Front suspension... The underside shows the chassis, wires and motors... Annd finally a little video to demonstrate the fucntions and the oudoor performance. Building instructions/partslist: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-14441/T-Lego/technic-rc-audi-rally-car-with-buwizz-20/#comments Hope you like it, comments, criticism and questions are welcome!
  5. This is my latest BuWizz creation, it is a remake of my first and worst MOC-video, using a s-brick in the old one, the buwizz allows it to be even smaller. It has 2 buggy motors, and 4 rubber tracks, in this picture the upper track is powered by a buggy motor on each side, the lower track is running free, but the tracks mesh extremely well and they will not slip at all, so it can drive on either side, however this side up gives the best ground clearance, and the least risk on damage on the connectors or buwizz, also note the 4L halfbeams in front of the connectors, a pure shield.. it also has 2 little black bumpers, wich help it pick a side when it lands on the front, they help it roll, in stead of "eating" the floor it can work with the 24t-12t and 20t-16t gear combinations, in the 1:2 gearing this thing is extremely fast for its size and hard to drive, but it is doable, for this i use the brickcontroller app @imurvai created and a usb gamepad with OTG-cable, without this setup i was not able to control it in any way, even with this i hard to learn to drive with lower gear settings (slow buwizz settings are just not an option for me, sorry). It has single bogie torsion bar suspension, which does.. very little, but i think it was a nice little addition, it also functions fine without them. So here is a video of it in action: and just asking: is this thumbnail too much click bait? it actually does the climb, but... well check the video ;) I hope you like it!
  6. This is my entry for BuWizz Fast Car competition. Features: - RWD with differential - Front independent suspension with positive castor - Rear live-axle suspension with long trailing arms - RC/Buggy motor for propulsion - Servo-motor for steering - BuWizz 2.0 I wanted to make a fast and agile car that will provide some real "turbo" experience of driving. The appearance is much inspired by BJ Baldwin's trophy truck. I recorded video in the last days of March, when we still had a lot of snow and it was a bit of luck to find some clean place to make video. I am still learning how to make good videos and this was a nice experience. If you like my entry, you are welcome to vote:) https://buwizz.com/buwizz-fast-car-competition/
  7. Hello Guys, Today I would like to present my first moc here, which was built for the Buwizz fast car competition. I have been back to Lego for about 2 years now. I have built a few Mocs, and mods, but I have not found them good enough to show to others. :) I hope you like this little buggy, let me give you some more information about the build. I was half way with a build when I heard about the competition, so I decided to change that according to the rules. I usually build with more motors, so the challenge for me was to make the model efficient. I started with a 4wd version, with differential on both axles. The main feature was the independent suspension with small pneumatic pistons as shock absorbers. I started to test this solution on Agrofs buggy modded by Kbalage. It worked well, so I decided to use this solution in this build to help the stability of the car after the jump. As you see, I had to give up the 4wd setup, as the single rc buggy motor even with Buwizz 2.0 was just not enough to do the job. I have some pictures of the old version, and I have a plan to put 2 motors in it, will post that, once its built. So I decided to reduce the friction by eliminating all the gearing, so the rear wheels are propelled from fast output. I hope you will like it Guys, let me know what you think. :) An earlier version with 4WD: At the very beginning: Suspension test: Here is the final video: A few photos:
  8. For the BuWizz "Fast Car Competition" I build the "SIXeight", a reasonable fast six-wheeler powered by - of course - a BuWizz. Functions: Propulsion 1 Buggy motor Steering 1 PF Servo Features Double wishbone suspension (front axles) Live axle suspension (rear axle) Fake calipers (front wheels) Fake V8 Next the video: Have fun watching! And if you don't mind don't hesitate and vote for me - I would really appreciate that ;)
  9. That's my entry for Buwizz fast car contest. The model is a mix of supercar and offroad truck. No, Lamborghini Urus is a bad example. I have heavy duty suspension of Baja truck and rear wheel drive. Body type (not design!) is inspired from Ferrari GTC4 Lusso - long Shooting Brake. I have only one seat - driver's. Other side is reserved by Buwizz. There is a place behind the driver, but long travelling rear axle with Buggy motor need a lot of space in the back. Specs Propulsion motor - RC Buggy motor Steering motor - Servo RC and power - Buwizz 2.0 Front independent supsension with postive caster angle and negative camber in the lowest point (different length suspension arms) Rear live axle suspension Fake winch and roof lights Brown "leather" luxury seat and dashboard (that's luxury Trophy truck) openable doors and bonnet Front suspension arms are 5L and 6L, so in the lowest point frone suspension have negative camber angle. Don't know if it help or not, but it is a fact. In addition, postitive caster should help in straight fast driving. But it is not. Thank you for watching.
  10. The T-90S Bhishma was essentially identical to the Russian T-90. It was given a more powerful engine to cope with the new armour and equipments, a jamming system a laser warning receivers, while still relying on a powerful 2A46M 125 mm smoothbore main gun with a thermal sleeve and muzzle detector that can fire a whole range of ammunitions including HE, Frag, HEAT, APFSDS and ATGMs which were developed in India. The improved night sights allowed to detect and engage targets at 700m to 1100m in pitch black darkness, fog or sandstorms while on the move and the gun is fully stabilized. The armour protection level rests on the hardened steel hull of the T-72 with inserts of composites in the turret front, and a layer of ERA bricks (KONTAKT 5) explosive armour. Secondary armament comprises a roof-mounted 12.7 mm and coaxial 7.92 mm machine gun. Mobility is assured by two planetary gear boxes for the transmission and two final drives, plus a snorkel allowing 5m of immersion with a 20 min. preparation. The limited weight of the tank 45 tons, compared to the Arjun allows this tank to be air-transported and compatible with most bridges in India. However The Indian T-90S didn’t have the Shtora-1 countermeasure suite, and the locally-built model is equipped with sights from Thales (France) and the Kanchan composite armour developed locally.(tank ECYCLOPEDIAA ) Manual tiny tank gun elevating mechanism mechanism size:9X6X2 studs
  11. One BuWizz, it's good. But two, it's better, because you can make MOCs having 8 functions! I have already done a full RC compact excavator, but with LEGO IR receivers. I wanted do make another excavator without the gearbox allowing to choose between the rotation of the arm and the pneumatic pump. Furthermore, the M motors were just enough powerful to move the arm. On this new excavator, it's different. I tried to make the mecanic as compact as possible. And the arm is controlled with more powerful motors: 1 L and 1 XL. So now you can... dig on gravel with a GoPro attached on the arm, and the motors bear that easily! There is a good speed and so much power to do anything you want! For the design, I tried to cover the maximum and I kept a color scheme close to the one of my previous excavator. To switch on the BuWizz of the turret, you need to open the part behind the cab. The hood is also openable, but there is nothing interesting to see. ^^ So the functions are: -> Controlled by the bottom BuWizz: Left track (M motor) Right track (M motor) Blade (M motor) LEDs (of the cab and the arm) -> Controlled by the BuWizz of the turret: Turn table (L motor) 1st part of the arm (XL motor) 2nd part of the arm (L motor) Bucket (M motor) You have certainly noticed that there are shock absorbers. It's for the tension of the tracks. The LEDs: And the video! The BuWizz are in Fast mode and I used the app BrickController, done by @imurvai. It's perfect for this MOC!
  12. I'd like to present my latest BuWizz creation: I like to think of it as a tribute to my beloved 8366 and 8475 sets, which I never get to play with, because i need their motors for other projects, projects like this..It also explains the somewhat cheesy name of the car.. This is a 8475 / 8366 hybrid on steroids and the most fun i have had with an RC car in ages! Here is the video: i hope you like it!
  13. For the "Fast car competition" organized by BuWizz, I have done that: For this contest, you have to make a vehicle with suspensions, and do a video showing it doing at least one jump. Of course, the MOC must be powered by a BuWizz! For the steering, there is a servomotor. The driving is done by two L motors, with a 1:1.8 ratio. So the buggy has a correct speed, and enough torque to be driven on dirt, sand... It is fully suspended. The front is an ordinary system. But for the rear, I couldn't do independant suspensions (not enough compact) or a suspended axle (because as the motors are in the chassis, when you accelerate the axle tilts). So I done an "amost suspended axle". The liftarms thin 5L have an effect of anti roll-bar. I have tried to do a light design. Thus, the MOC weighs 460 grams.
  14. I started making a regular Renault Twizy... Twizy 3 by James Tillson, on Flickr ...but with the buwizz and a buggy motor I switched to Twizy F1, Twizy F1 4 by James Tillson, on Flickr Shame its not yellow but the yellow #4 connectors are more expensive than white ones.
  15. Hello! I would like to share with you my new work. GAZ "Tiger" (GAZ-233036 or SPM-2). It's russian 4x4, multipurpose, all-terrain infantry mobility vehicle manufactured by GAZ, first delivered to the Russian Army in 2006. Primarily used by the Russian Federation's armed forces. Specifications: Four-wheel drive Independent suspension Open all doors, hood and sunroof The steering wheel in the car is synchronized with the steering Row 6-cylinder engine 4 L Motors for Motion Servo motor for power steering M motor to winch drive Power and control implemented by BuWizz 1.0 Weight - 2.3 kg Length - 50 cm Width - 20 cm Height - 20 cm Description: The model is executed on a scale of 1:11. The project was started in the middle of 2016, but it can be considered completed only now. The model is based on the GAZ-233036 armored vehicle, GAZ Tiger or SPM-2 (special police machine), which can be found in the special forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, in particular in the OMON. In the process of construction, the main question was how to force a model that weighs more than 2 kg to go and not crawl like the Lego trial trucks, and indeed most large models weighing more than 1,500 kg. To the aid came BuWizz, the power of which was enough to allow the Tiger to move with the speed of SUVs from the Lego of medium size, while overcoming small obstacles and not adding weight (hello to the big Lego battery packs). Each axis is driven by separate pairs of L motors with a gear ratio of 2.8 through the open differentials in front and rear. For the steering is responsible servo motor, running synchronously with the steering wheel in the cabin. In the front bumper there is a winch, powered by an M motor. All remote control is via BuWizz 1.0 In the cabin, the front instrument panel is worked out, there are two seats in the front and two benches in the passenger compartment. The color scheme is printed on self-adhesive paper More photos: Now I am modifying the model in the Lego Digital Designer. Maybe someone has something to like, what would be worth changing or adding to it? In my plans to make several modifications.
  16. Hi, after finishing my luffing crane I worked on a very compact 6WD truck with skid steering. The digital model was almost finished about two weeks ago. I prepared to order the needed parts - but then I noticed the "BuWizz fast car competition". And I decided to upset the applecart. The original concept did not have any suspension and would not fit the conditions of the contest. So I widened the chassis and integrated independent suspension to all 6 wheels. There are two separate drivetrains for left and right side, each using an L-motor. But the clue is: they are connected by a subtractor powered by an M-motor. You might know this strategy from my previous MOC "Woody and the Woodpicker" https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/156214-moc-mini-skidder-woody-and-the-woodpicker/&tab=comments#comment-2880712 But there are little differences to "Woody". The drivetrains are geared up to make the vehicle much faster (as it is a fast car contest ...). On the other hand the subtractor is geared down to make steering smooth at high speed. Enough words, here it is: About 1 week to the deadline ... I hope the weather will be fine next week to make some outdoor videos Regards Leonard Goldstein
  17. This is built on a variation of my Le Mans Racer chassis. The chassis is very versatile and I will probably get a few more models out of it.

  18. This started as a mini GT40 but decided it wanted to be something else... It has a buwizz and a L-motor geared up 1:3. I'm going to make one more with a changed livery and then maybe try the GT40 again.

  19. Completion date:21/02/2018. scale:1/9 Size:34units/width25units/high13units. Power:2xL Motor 1×Servo Motor. Power/Control: BuWizz Number of parts:765pcs. Weight:857g. I saw it on YouTube, although it was a few years ago, but it still looks cool. Lazareth's Wazuma V8F Matte Edition is Ferrari 3.0L V8 engine that's capable of delivering 250 horsepower, a handlebar-controlled six-speed sequential gearbox from a BMW M3, and four made-to-measure horizontal shocks made by EMC. The V8F quad weighs just 650 kg (1,433 pounds) and benefits from electric power steering, modified 18-inch Momo (+Power) rims with slick tires and Brembo calipers on four 324mm disc brakes. It's said to incorporate the injection system of two sport bike engines, electronically-controlled by a Sybelle system. There are eight intake funnels for 4 exhaust outlets and a huge cooling radiator.

Let the GAMES begin BuWizz Team
  21. I have started a pair of small Honda sports cars, a 1964 S600 and a 2015 S660. Both models are 1:8.8 scale but still pretty small, the S660 is only 48 studs by 21. S600 has two L motors used as trailing arms (similar to real car). I'm going to soften the front wishbone suspension as I would like it lean more in to corners. The final version will probably be black. The S660 has 2 L motors geared up 3:1 in the video but full power eventually makes the diff gears fall out. It has double wishbone all round with a floating diff. I have 2 BuWizz now so expect to see a race when they are finished.
  22. 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!

  23. Here are my 1960s Corvettes. 1961 C1, 1963 C2 and 1969 C3. They are all based on this simple buwizz powered chassis. It has a servo for steering and a single L-Motor for drive. Front suspension is like 42039 and the rear is similar to 8081. The C2 and C3 have a shorter wheelbase than the C1 so there are two slightly different version of the chassis. 1961 Corvette C1 1963 Corvette C2 1969 Corvette C3
  24. Hi everyone, Finally, I have finished a project which I was building since last September. It is the scale model of the Intrac 2011 snow blower which is/was often used in the swiss alps by the army and other communal parties. It was the aim to create another working snow blower after the success of the snow blower from last winter. The blower is powered by three buggy-motors which are all controlled by a separate Sbrick. Each track is driven by two PF XL motors. The snow blower shoot direction is controlled by two 9-volt micro motors and the height of the snow blower by one PF L motor. As power source I used two Buwizz as battery or a custom lipo battery. After a certain time in the cold I had the replace the Buwizz with the custom lipo battery. Cheers FT
  25. Here's a MOC on which I'm working since the end of the previous summer! After I have done the video of my DS3, I had the idea to do a new chassis with 4 wheel drive. I thought it would not be possible, but the first prototype was better than my DS3! Actually the MOC is not finished. The stickers are missing, and I'm continuing to develop the chassis (I'm adding a 4th L motor) Actually there are 1 L for the front, and 2 L for the rear. The great advantage of the 4WD is that it can take a great angle while turning, but it's always controllable. But, that can have an inconvenient: the understeering. For that, I did the same thing on the real RC drift cars: I added a free wheel. So when I do not accelerate, the front wheels are not braked and the car does not understeer. You can see this video on this video, done for BuWizz with Charbel. But this is one. It's the same thing, but there is only my car. The final gymkhana will be for the next summer, because that requires a lot of time, and with the school, I have not enough time at another moment of the year.
