  1. Hi! A few weeks ago I started doing some prototypes on a tracked trial vehicle. It will probably have 2 long tracks with pins in them, skid steering using 2 L or XL motors and one BB. Goals: find a soft and smooth suspension, have a bodywork wich looks kinda like a ripsaw(not EV2), be able to climb some not really steep hills and descend them as well, float on/over the snow. Acheived goals: find a soft and smooth suspension, I will come back with some photos of a smaller prototype to get the idea.
  2. Hello My ripsaw, inspired by Fast Furious 8 (but not a copy). Since Buwizz can handle 2x Buggy motors, I decided to build light and powerful tracked vehicle for snow. Vehicle for fun! Movie was filmed 3 month ago. We have summer now. TURN ON ENGLISH SUBTITLES I am not the first here with such powerful tracked vehicle. I can confrim that it is useless toy and hard to control. Thing for fun:) more photos http://bricksafe.com/pages/rm8/ripsaw Thank you for watching!

    Ripster V16

    Hi everyone This is a model i built a while ago, but only now had the time and eqiupment to showcase. I was asked to build a Buwizz showcase model for a toy fair in Boogna, italy. After some thought I decided to combine the rare dark blue panels from 41999 with tracks and a couple of RC motors. The finished model has following features: 2 RC models for drive Spring supported pendular suspension Two working fake V8 engines - hence the V16 Rollcage reinforced interrior with 4 seats Openable 70's muscle car style openable bodywork A working winch LED bar powereed by a total of 10 LEDs So lets start with a 360 view of the model: As you can see the body is inspired by 70's muscle car styling with large chromed grill Detailed view of the grill with the cute bunny: Lifting up the body exposes the internal rollcage and the two massive engines: Further the rollcage can be lifted by pulling out the two red pins, showing the 4 identical seats, making this a perfect family car The two V8's are powered by the RC motor's faster output: The power passes via cardan axles under the seats and up the gears: In case the model ever gets stuck there is also a functional winch powered by an M motor via 1:5 gearing ratio: The suspension is highly flexible: And here is the most important photo of any technic model : And to finish up with a bang here's a video of the Ripster in action: A quick summary of my thoughts regarding this model: Because the tracks are powered by the RC motors directly this is THE fastest tracked model I ever had the pleasure of building. But that speed comes with a price, the model has problems steering on spot on surfaces with high friction such as carpets. Sudden acceleration on such surfaces with quite a heavy model like this (1,5 kg) can cause problems with tracks coming apart. For that reason this is a perfect vehicle for smooth surfaces or ice. It is also very good at drifting, though it takes a lot of coordination to control a tracked vehicle like this. Suspension is extremely durable, the wheels were originally held with frictionless pins, but that proved insufficient, so they were replaced by axles 5 with stops. After that upgrade I had zero issues with suspension and it proved to be very flexible, yet reliable. Biggest problem with the model is the cosmetic stuff, the V8 chains tend to slide off after a while at such high RPMs, the bunny likes to jump into oblivion and the front grill can fall apart when crashing into stuff. Oh and one last thing, ITS LOUD. Driving this on my floor sounds like machine gun fire, so I hope my neighbours wont file a complaint . At the end of the day even with its positives and negatives its a very fun model to drive around and that is all that matters.
  4. Well the start of yet another Mad Max related MOC.. maybe a cool idea for the next contest... During the viewing of the latest film of Mad Max Fury Road I kept thinking of Doc_Brown's Monster truck (Known as Bigfoot in the film) and when I first saw the Peacemaker pull up into the recently blocked valley pass , I was... well awestruck by the idea of putting a car chassis on a Ripsaw. After the completion of the film, I was amazed by all of the vehicles in the film, my first thoughts were of building the War Rig, but I realized that I lacked the proper tires for that (though seeing one of those with Unimog tires ... maybe in the far future, like all of the models that I dream of building, but lack the funds for. ) So I came to the idea of building a smaller model that I know I have the parts to build... and I have to do this by the end of the week, as I would like to have a couple models to display during my graduation party. Over saturday, I began to design the suspension and side rails for the return rollers. Today I returned to the project and finished up the Ripsaw's chassis, now I have to build the body for the Challenger that sits on top of the Ripsaw's roll cage. This model seems to perform well with a soft suspension and two L motors with no reduction to the drive sprockets. There is a differential between the drive shafts to the sprockets, this is used to power a V6 motor in the center of the vehicle. Though It prefers to be driven forwards, rather than reverse, as it has some issues with friction causing the last bogie to be flicked upwards away from the drive sprocket. Anyways, I present the progress so far, I plan to make a body for it, In the film it is a shade of yellow mixed with rust, I may change the yellow to red, and use brow to replicate some rust, as I have more red tiles than yellow, or light bluish grey is also a option...

    Ripsaw WIP

    This is my WIP Topic since I've figured out all my questions about the build. This is my first tank build and I think it's going pretty well! It is based off the Ripsaw, but has some differences: ^I had to use some interesting techniques to connect both the studded and studless construction. ^My table's pretty messy during builds I need to brace the structure in the rear and make a simple lightweight connection from front to back to place the electronics box and battery on. Hope you like it!
