Madoca 1977 posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHello everyone! It's been a long time since I posted last creation. For the past few months, I've had difficult life situation. I was away from any LEGO-related activities. I did not build new MOCs. I abandoned all WIP projects and just built a wall around myself... I am so sorry, Jantjeuh and rm8. I deeply apologize for having troubled you! In March, I started walking slowly. Soon I recognized that I had to work hard to get back Madoca into my mind. Here are the results. I built two MOCs. Honestly they are mechanically simple and have nothing innovative. Instead, I aimed to achieve both playability and detailed look. I hope you will like them. Please give me a chance for resurrection. Video: CUV Buggy Building instructions and additional pictures: https://plus.google....64977943/albums Rebrickable: CUV http://rebrickable.c...977/compact-cuv Buggy http://rebrickable.c...lightning-buggy Compact CUV It was mainly inspired by red Range Rover Evoque, but finished model is not an exact copy of it. Do you think which actual SUV looks similar to this MOC? I used dozens of newer parts (mostly pins) which were released in 2014 and 2015. So it can be called AWD SUV 2015. Features: All-wheel drive and front wheel steering 2 L motors for propulsion, Servo motor for steering 2 pairs of LEDs for headlights and tail lights Independent suspension on all wheels Working steering wheel and V6 engine Openable hood, doors (with locking mechanism), tailgate, glove box and armrest box:) There are four 12t tan bevel gears on drivetrain. They all survived after two hours crawling. Like blue Buggy, this drivetrain didn't cause breaking gears. My concern was that 3L axles might slide into CV joints. Eventually all four 3L axles moved half-stud into CV joints. But they surprisingly kept holding each 12t black double bevel gears despite the connection became weaker. I thought it's OK because I didn't see any lack of torque or speed. You can see its performance in the video. If you want to avoid this axle movement, you need cutting parts and, A. using 3.5L axle. B. putting 0.5L axle (or flex axle, pneumatic hose, hard hose...) into CV joints. Blue Lightning Buggy It is my Buggy#3. The concept was simple: to build another buggy using different drivetrain from its predecessors. Configuration of motors is the same as Buggy#1 & #2. This time I adopted independent rear suspension. Then I tried to build efficient drivetrain which needed to be nearly the same as direct-drive (#2). Features: Rear wheel drive and front wheel steering 2 L motors for propulsion (one per each rear wheel), Servo motor for steering Long travel independent suspension on all wheels Front axle is placed at positive caster angle Working steering wheel In this setting, L motors never broke bevel gears. Now I want to know if powerful SBrick version would perform well without gear cracking.
SilenWin posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHello! Today I'm proudly present you my new MOD - 6x6 CUV, originally made by Madoca. His CUV impressed me so much when I built it, that I decided to build a modified version. Main targets was: impressive exterior, powerful drivetrain and different bodywork. Also I wanted it to have some serious off-road capabilities, so I decided to use larger wheels with custom tires. So final features is: - 6x6 drive - 4 L-motors (2 on each side) - 4 Li-Po BB (connected in parallel) - SBrick - Positive caster angle (front suspension) - Wheel reductors (3:1) and custom tires I tried to keep the original look, but front wheelarches was too small, so I replaced them with flex axles The rear part now looks completely different, it looks more like pickup. Special thanks to jorgeopesi for his wonderful fake engine idea! The only noticeable change in the cockpit - sticking BB The rest are hiding in the trunk Here is the teaser video: Thanks for watching! Hope you enjoy it Feel free to leave comments, your feedback is very important for me.
