this is my second attempt at the warrior supercar. it is a Wip and will be untill my lego part order arrives. I would like to incorporate these features: 1. Hog / servo. 2. Double wishbone suspension with twin rear shocks. 3. Gearbox : canceled. 4. Working (fake) engine. 5. Sporty bodywork. 6. Functional steering wheel. note: this is a fictional car so it will be easier to customize.
suffocation posted a topic in LEGO Technic and Model TeamJust finished my first almost-Moc - a clumsy attempt at making a tow truck. The cabin is a complete rip-off of the Arocs - by the time I got to that building stage I was drained and just wanted to get it done. Furthermore, by mounting the Arocs cabin I was able to assess how half-baked the rest of the truck looks in comparison. I also stole some ideas from D3K but didn't pull them off even half as well. Please forgive the atrocious pics - it's the best I can get out of my lousy phone. http://bricksafe.com...ds/my-first-moc Features: - 8x4 - pendular suspension on all axles - proportional steering on front axles - side and back outriggers - tow fork - tilting cabin - 360° rotating crane - fake engine (straight 6) - pole reverser The truck is driven by 2 XL motors, with 1 M motor for steering. The other functions are driven by 1 L motor; six are activated via three selectors near the back, whereas the crane is controlled via another two selectors on the crane itself. I didn't have the foresight to include an anti-roll bar - hence, whenever the truck negotiates a curve it tilts and jams. Lesson learnt - I'll rebuild the whole thing once I figure out how to work the anti-roll bar into the very limited available space. I also need to rework the geartrain, since a few of the functions are a tad too fast. Any tips on pendular axles with anti-roll bars and on how to make the truck look less like a bubble truck would be greatly appreciated =) Cheers! P.S.: Massive props to D3K - I hope you read this, mate, because your work was a huge inspiration and really kept me going even when I was about to give up.
Hello, I recently installed LDD for the first time on my Windows 8.1 laptop. I notice anytime I start it, it says "Installing Bricks" and downloads over 159.50 MB of data out of 159.93 MB... But it never reaches the end, it always stops before the end and says "Bricks Download Failed" with the message "LDD cannot access the web server to retrieve new bricks.Do you want to run in offline mode?" And I have to hit Yes to use the software, hitting No closes it. I've manually added the exe file to the Winodws Firewall exemption list. I've Googled but only finding questions from years ago about an older version- does anyone have any ideas on what could be the problem?
Hi, I've just tried demonstrating my 8043 excavator to a friend and found that one of the m-motors has failed (it was the centre motor in the model that powered one of the tracks and also the two synced la's). I pulled it out of the model and attached it straight to a power source and found it wouldn't go... But playing around a bit I found that if I have an axel attached and spin it around fast with my fingers for a bit that then the motor will go when I switch it on, but when switched off and back on it doesn't work again (I have to spin the axel again some more). So it appears the cable is fine and that it is something in the motor. I'm just about to place a Lego order so will get a new m-motor... But I'm wondering if anyone else has had experience with this? should I be trying to get lego to replace the motor (it's a couple of years old now)? is it something I could perhaps fix myself? (bearing in mind that while I do have a soldering iron I don't use it very often at all )
