  1. Hi Everyone, I'm aware of 32054 to attach an axle and give it friction. Is there anything that can be added to the middle of an axle to add friction? I have a structure with an axle I want to add friction to, but in order to use 32054 I would have to modify the structure in a way that annoys me. It would be much more convenient to be able to add something in a pinhole in a link arm the axle is going through. Thanks!

    Strangely Molded Part

    Piece in question I got the cmf spider-man today and was wondering if the strange thing on the web piece was just left over from the molding or something else. Also is it worth anything?

    Lego Collection Sorting

    Hello, I am just getting back into Legos and wondering about the extent of other people's collections. How many Legos do people have? How long does it take to sort your collection? How do you sort your collection? Is there any kind of automated way to sort besides the DIY machines on Youtube? How much space does Lego sorting take up?
  4. Hello everybody. I am trying to put in a 2 speed automatic transmission, to a large MOC. I already have a 4 speed manual transmission, but it is hard to reach. I want something that when it goes up hills, it can automatically give more torque with out me having to shift it. Does anybody know how to do this? PDF instructions would be helpful. Thank you, LegoBuilder919
  5. Hello everybody! I have been recently thinking about building the V8 WK3 pneumatic engine, from Greek Gecko Workshops. On their page, it says that to get max RPM you need 116 psi, and you need to be able to hook the engine up to an air compressor. Does anybody know how to do this? I have not been able to find any answers. Thanks, LegoBuilder919
  6. I like to use my figure for lightsaber battles but after a while the hands get loose. Is there any way to increase the friction on the hands so it doesn't twist so quickly? Thanks
  7. Hi Everyone, I have a set of exclusive LEGO items from the 2010 lego inside tour, including a signed exclusive set that is 9/30. I am looking to sell. Is anyone here an evaluator for lego or know the best way to go about this? I am happy to pay for this service, Thanks!
  8. I have an android smartphone with an ir blaster and the rcx uses ir so can I control it with my smartphone? If I have to use some specific tools or need to do something complicated so it'll work I can.
  9. I was searching for offers on the out-door suspension and noticed that there are only two sets that include it but I only knew about the bike one. So I checked the building instructions of the 8369 set and omg what is that system? Is that even qualify(of course it does because it's Lego) as Lego? So if anyone can provide info about this strange system I would be really thankful.
  10. Hi, I hope this is the right place to ask this question: I want to get back into Lego technic, more than a decade ago, I was an avid builder and enthusiast, but I no longer own any Lego, and haven't had any chance to get back into it, due to work-life-balance-issues. However, I am now presented with the opportunity to get back into it, and I am quite floored by all the available models, MOCS and whatnot, so I'd like to ask, which model would be a good starting point for someone who enjoys the build most of all. Preferably, I'd love to buy one set with a few quality B- and C- and D- models, which I can build, re-build and thus get my Lego groove on again. Budget isn't too much of a concern, though if possible I'd like to stick to below 250€, and I'd very much enjoy something with a few functions, gears and intricacies. So far, I looked at: 42043 - seems it increased in price but is still held in high regard, but is it worth the asking price of 250€? 42100 - apparently enormous, but I read quite a few mixed reviews when it comes to functionality. Can be had used for 250+- 42082 can be had for 150ish used, seems to provide a few fun functions and a good few b and c models 42055 seems like a behemoth with a lot of functions, can be had for 200€ used. so, any recommendations on where to get started again, with only one set?
  11. I have a small IT class project for school where I have to program an EV3 robot through the small basic extension. I want the robot to play a sound file (a short rsf file) but I don't have access to all of the folders nor do I have access to the EV3 software... The sound file I want to play was made at home using the EV3 software but I can't use the exported rsf in my code for some reason. I have tried several things but without access to all the folders (I can reach several folders but not through the root so I can't reach the sounds folder) and the EV3 software I'm stuck... Can anyone help me with the rsf without saving it in the sounds folder?
  12. Lego 45803, 45568 Are these strange looking beams and lift-arms actually flexible? Could their flexibility feasibly be used in a torsion type of suspension? And to be sure, they are compatible with modern lego pins and axles, right?
  13. I thought for some bit about getting 42110. As a car enthusiast and MOC builder, I have always loved the Technic manufacturer cars, owning the Arocs, Porsche, Bugatti, and even the Corvette. All those sets wielded me some very useful pieces to make future MOCs with. However, the Land Rover set doesn't seem like a good buy for me... I have a lot of Lego already. It's expensive. I'm not into Land Rover, even though I think the new Defender is cool. The pieces. The lockable differential and the new wheels are the only pieces that I can find use with, and there's not many good ideas I have for green MOCs. I thought about getting the Porsche 911 RSR instead because of its white pieces, but the fenders have prints. So I guess I'll take a pass on both cars, what is your opinion on the new Defender set?
  14. I have only been building my creations with EV3 but for a long time now I thought about getting a BuWizz. It's a good price right now. I'm really interested in how amazing this product is and I would be excited to make the transition to PF/BuWizz powered cars, so I have to get a servo motor and a few L motors to go with it. What is your opinion on buying a BuWizz 2.0? What PF parts should I buy to go with it to make car MOCs? Thank you for your feedback.

    Moc steam train help

    So I've been working on a black steam train using the gear system from the emerald night train design while it runs fine on straight track it slows to stops around corners It was using the same xl motor design although I did tests with a pf train motor b it the same results (removed the Pistons etc) but no luck Hoping to get some advice as this is my first moc train and I have a upcoming show this month and like it running along with my other trains (white bullet train and winter train)
  16. Hi, how are you doing? So... just as a future reference point, how do you feel about self-promoting your Ideas submissions on here? Are they allowed, and- more intriguing to me- do you respect them? Is it too desperate/low-brow to you? I've been debating whether I should put any and all my future Ideas submissions on here, I'm curious what you guys think about it? Thanks, I appreciate it!

    How was your thanksgiving?

    So how was everyone’s thanksgiving I wish to know.
  18. Hello, I am looking for the part 4621555 but transparent. I want to change the two panels over the engine of the porsche gt3 rs so I can see it. Are there any panels like this? Greetings
  19. Not really, but I found out that the motors in my GX EV3 peform better in IR Control mode than how they do in my program, and I believe that it is because the motor power is different. Each block in the EV3 programming software that moves the motors has a digit for how much power each motor should have. I'm wondering what this digit is in IR Control mode, because the motors act much better in this mode than how the do in the program. If anyone here knows the power of the motors when the EV3 brick is in this mode, please reply as soon as possible. It would be very appreciated.
  20. I'm back with one last issue in my GX EV3 build. I just got done finishing the doors, side panels, rear trunk door, hood, and some part of the roof. But the vehicle was so heavy that when I drove it around, it kept on doing the same thing. The diffs were clicking and the car had very much difficulty moving. Here is a picture of the bottom of the vehicle. Most of the clicking seems to be coming from the rear diff when I move the wheels by hand. I can either do two things. 1. Reinforce the rear diff somehow. 2. Improve it's off-road performance and stop the clicking somewhat by replacing the diffs with knob gears. But this will come at the cost of independent moving between the wheels. What should I do? Please give me the best response you can so the clicking will stop and I could finally take this AWD machine through some rough terrain like a real SUV. I really appreciate any advice.
  21. With one of my recent MOCs, people have been asking for instructions and since I generally don't have a lot of time, it's been a doubtful case. However, I've considered making them and then selling them for this MOC (and other MOCs with hundreds of pieces that involve complex techniques) to justify the time taken (which will also help me fund such creations in the future). Now that someone has mentioned being willing to pay for them, I decided to do some research. As this is something I haven't done before, I was wondering if there are any guidelines to take into mind to start doing this. What people are generally willing to pay, the best way to distribute the instructions and any other things to potentially take in mind, such as the unwanted spreading of copies and all other things that may be involved. Knowing that there might be some people here who also deal in such trades and some who may just know a thing or two about it, I figured I'd just ask to help get me started in the best way possible. ~ GM

    At the bottom of a lot of people's replies, I notice a little area where they have personal info/pictures/messages. I was wondering how you get that little box? (EDIT) I see now that they are called signatures, but I don't see an option in my account preferences about signatures.
  23. Personally, I'd like to visit the UK. For one thing, I'm part-British, and I also have a lot of friends from the UK, including one of my best friend's girlfriend.. whom he hasn't seen in months, sadly.
  24. I'm building a tow truck, and I'm running into a problem with the design of the functions. First, let's do an image of what we're talking about. As you see, it's a smaller-scale version of a tow truck similar to 8285, but with an extra axle. The wheels will be those from 42024 and other sets. Because of the scale, there is probably not enough room to add PF. So right now I'm aiming to have it manual. As far as I can see now, there will be the following functions: steering main boom raising/lowering main boom extension main boom winch car lifter raising/lowering car lifter fold out/in outriggers The steering is done and controlled by the gear on the roof. The car lifter fold in/out will be manual with a knob at the back. Remaining are 5 functions. The question I'm having now is, how to drive those. Of course, with the model being manual, I could just add a knob for every function. But this doesn't sound like the most technically challenging option, so I am thinking of adding some kind of switchbox. But, 5 functions is kind of an unwieldy number, ecause it requires 3 switches with 1 being half-used. Currently, the outriggers are driven by knobs on the side, and I could leave it that way and have 4 functions running from the switchbox, but this feels kind of incomplete as well. So I'm unsure about where to go from here. So I'm looking for some advice. What do you think? Are there other options? What would you do?
  25. Hi guys, can I damage PF Servo motor if I will force to turn it only 45° as you can see it on image bellow? Green axle will be connected to servo that will be fixed to red part:
