  1. Hello, I've always been a fan of legos. My favorite set of all time has to be the 8880 Super Car. I purchased this set and assembled it as a grad student at Michigan State University. I learned far more about real cars in the process then I ever expected to. Then soon there after came a job, kids, etc. and I had zero free time. I'm now in a lower stress job, my kids are off to college and a friend pointed out the LEGO Ideas 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V set soon to be released that I'm hoping to get. But all this has rekindled the joy I had putting the 8880 Super Car together. It had 4 wheel drive, 4 wheel steering, 4 wheel independent suspension. In many ways it's drive train seems to be more complex then all the super cars I've read about since. This MOC kit seems like one of the nicest I've read about: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-2811/NKubate/predator-supercar/#bi But I was curious what others thought was the best Super Car out there, official kit or MOC. Also if I end up going after an MOC like this one, what is the best way to get all the pieces. I see the directions are for sale but getting all the parts sounds more complicated then putting the model together. Thanks, Carl
  2. Hi Everyone, I wanted to build a Gallardo to put it on my desk but I could not find something to my liking on web so decided to have some try on it. Sorry another boring supercar topic... Here is a real one first: My Scale length has some issue but other than that seems to be in scale, height from ground is one stud higher but car clearance is 1 stud higher as well which offsets when suspension is compressed. Best if you open it in big screen/size from bricksafe My Car A quick comparison with an orange 42022 Functions: * 4 wheel drive (unswitchable, has central differential but became useless as switch is never disabled) * independent suspension, 1 hard spring (yellow) on each wheel * scissors doors openable by a small gear under the car * 4 speed sequential gearbox: operated by gear lever at 4 positions (front: 1, back: 4) ratios (1 to 4): 27/45 , 15/45 , 9/45 , 5/45 before differentials. input is wheels, output is fake engine * Hand Of God steering at cockpit with working steering wheel * Ackermann steering geometry * V10 fake engine Features: * Orange * size in studs: 58 L, 27 W, 17 H * size in cm: 45.5 L, 22.5 W, 14 H * Spoiler * Fake disk brakes (in red, hardly visible from outside) Credits: * Sariel's Scaler * Pvdb's Koenigsegg One:1 90degree axle stopper for gearbox sequential shifter. * 42056's Sequential Gearbox :) Rest is pictures: Front: Back: Side: The double black thin 4L and the LBG towball pin is the gear lever. At front position it is gear 1, at back position it is gear 4, at different positions in the between are gears 2 and 3. Way simple than what the car deserves :( 1st gear: 4th gear: Scissors doors, here you can see some nice looking seats as well :) it uses small turntable Operating gear for doors and its mechanism, the black 20T gear opens and closes the door with the worm so door stays closed or opened: Ground clearance is more than the car have to in scale so even a big finger can operate it from under car Ground clearance, more than I expected I admit. That is why car is 1 stud higher, about 2.5 studs unfortunately: Gearbox from bottom, very similar to 42056 Gearbox switch mechanism, Pvdb's stopper here, twin yellow 2L with rubber: V10 fake engine, didnot close its surrounding on purpose Axles, back is a 42029 style, front is a custom one I made but nothing complex. my req was to make it low height and allow Ackermann steering. Red things are fake brake discs:) Bottom view: Top view with a non-lego flex axle (26.5 stud length) and a regular black (19+7) one. sorry for different photo direction (the one from back of car to front windshield connector on roof) Things I dont like: Color choices: new 13x3 panel limits almost every color but still orange can be used with black or white car perhaps. * Black, works like a charm, every piece I used in orange could be found black in new sets. * White, similar to black but there are a few pieces not in white or non common (axle connector and 135 degree connector, and the 13x3 panel) * Red,if you have the #3 connector then again almost every piece can be swapped. * Blue, yellow, green, I hardly think they are available, maybe from old sets. Additional photos are at: Bricksafe folder Cheers
  3. Not sure if this is Creator, or a whole new theme. From David Thomsen. -Sci
  4. Hello it's the Dubai Police... :) Here you can see my latest MOC car which is a Bugatti Veyron in Dubai Police theme. It can fit either a minifig or a Friends figure (when steering wheel is removed). Hope you like. Thanks for watching.

    Porsche GT3 RS

    Taking me nearly two weeks, I finally got the time to find the needed parts and build this super car. I did a Mustang some time ago, and I thought I should make and complete a super sports car series (so that they can really race in my city, haha). Now, here you go! I just parked my new Porsche GT3 RS! (oops, I just found that a light is tilted in front of the restaurant!) I tried very hard to make the car profile as close to the real one as possible, and here are some photos for comparison... I think the rear part is the best, and I even keep the center red tail light! I like the mix of 4-stud and 5-stud to achieve the tail profile... I can use white for the spoiler, but I guess it is more exaggerating to have it in red. Just a little test. Now it is placed next to the Mustang, and you can see the two different styles... I tried so many different windshields but none of them looks nice since I have a 6-to-4 car profile (bottom to top). I guess I will just leave the glass issue aside, as the car profile is more important than glass problem! Time for pedal to the metal! C'mon and start drifting and dragging!
