Cardboy posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingI have made a stud less version of the classic 8865 Test Car Instructions can now be downloaded free here I would like some feedback and your opinions. I have tried to keep as many features from the original as possible including the clunky 3 speed gear box. The parts I'm least sure on is the engine also the front grill I have only used parts which have been produced by Lego in those colours which limits some design choices. I would love to have 63869 in red seeing as the Lamborghini got some in lime hoping there may be some in the new Ferrari. The front wishbones are only in grey now and you cant place the shocks in the same place so it now has a more positive rake. The original had more off road tiers and there rims are hard to get in white but it looked closer to the original than the the new ones for the current 1:8 scale cars. Some of the Blue parts are very expensive so i don't know if i should include some alternative colour schemes or can AFOLs figure it out themselves . (i don't have all the needed colour parts to build it but i substituted some of the blue for dark grey whilst working on it) One thing i have noticed building it from new beams compared to my original its a lot lighter but has more flex in the chassis the suspension is still light enough that its not to much of an issue. Here are some close ups of the engine
Cardboy posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingAs the 8845 was my first ever Technic model i decided to give it a redesign to modern stud less design. I have tried to keep it as much like the original as possible. This was awkward for the steering as that is 10 studs wide and steering for Technic is all odd, 7 long racks or limited like on the Corvett 42093 and the Race Kart 42048. The wheels are a bit oversized but i don't think Lego do anything closer. and the rear cargo area is a bit gappy. Hope you like it You can get some free instructions here
