If you want it, please let me know in this post or in a personal message with your email address, I will share it with you in google photos. Thanks
  2. Hello Speed Champions fans, my son asked me to build a white Audi R8. Both of us like the Speed Champions sets, therefore I choosen this scale. If you like it, you can support it on Lego Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/ead4242e-8bae-440d-930d-0c840d86ce5f It is a studless build from standard lego elements and modified City wheels are used instead of Speed Champions ones to keep the height to length ratio more realistic similarly to my earlier ideas. The front of this car is iconic and it was a real challenge to recreate it in this small size. I made lots of versions and I think the actual one with a tricky solution is the best. I tried more solutions to the black side blades too, the actual one was inspired by "LEGO Audi R8 instructions (MOC #96)" by "Jerry Builds Bricks" on Youtube, however I modifed it a bit as I wanted tilted blades similarly to the real ones. Only one sticker is used which is the Audi logo on the front as I'm generally not a fan of the parts with stickers, because of the lack of flexibility in using them with other builds. The set includes the minifigure shown on the main picture on the Lego Ideas. It comes form the set 75873 but with red helmet. I have added a rear wing to make the car more dynamic. It differs from the custom Audi wings, but I think it fits to the style of the car and to the side mirrors.

  3. A sequel to my Red Beryl GT from last year. It contains one SBrick, five motors (2x PF L, 2x PF M, 1x PF Servo), and six Brickstuff LEDs. Power comes from a PF rechargeable battery, with the Brickstuff LEDs powered by a separate Brickstuff battery box. Functions/features: Drive (AWD) Steering (with working steering wheel) 4-speed transmission Motorized gull-wing doors Full independent suspension Flat-6 engine Adjustable seats (recline/slide) Illuminated headlights and taillights (with Brickstuff LEDs) I plan to bring this MOC to BrickFair Virginia this August.

  4. Hello everyone, I would like to present an experimental supercar which I have finally finished. A little bit of history: it started because I noticed that the various LEGO-designed cars with pushrod suspension start sagging overtime as the ball joints and other pieces become warped. Also, they tend to exert forces in undesirable ways; the pushrods on 8461 (Williams F1 racer) especially on the front tend to push the rocker arms up and down as opposed to transferring the force directly to a rocking motion. So in this supercar, I made the front suspension with pushrods use a 45-degree angle for the rocker arms so that the force would be more properly applied. The springs and rockers are visible towards the front of the car in this photo: A separate goal this project succeeded in accomplishing is making independent rear suspension with a differential and no floating axle in a very narrow chassis. The differential placed behind the wheels made for a very narrow chassis! Other features this car has are: Gullwing doors Opening rear hood and extentable spoiler And a miniature V8 engine Thanks for looking!
  5. This is my second wave of 1:12 scaled super car. - In case you missed my first one, here is it: As a huge fun of Lamborghini, I decided to tackle Aventador SV this time. The design is almost done, and below are some CG pictures. Stay tuned for more details and instructions.

    [MOC] Street racer

    Hello, let's start the race! It is my own hypercar concept with a minifigure. I reused some details of my earlier idea called "Hypercar concept 1", but I wanted to build this car even more dynamic. It is a studless model built from standard LEGO elements. The overall size is similar to the Speed Champions sets, but the wheels are from City sets as I wanted to keep the height to length ratio closer to the real sports cars. If you like this car, please share and support it on Lego Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/146d40fc-49de-4af5-8173-4c73892a003e Many thanks!

  7. Hello there again! Having no fresh ideas for the TC16 model at all, decided to give a go with a new project. After seeing T Lego's amazing small size cars, the objective was crystal-clear. (relatively) small size, AWD, gearbox, fake engine - classic supercar basically. i started with a 1/12 model, but 56x28ZRs were perfect for a 1/11 model, so I gave in to a slightly bigger scale. Scaled using Sariel's amazing scaler basing myself off a Lamborghini Gallardo LP550. The outcome is 21 studs wide, 29 studs in-between wheels. So just like last time, sketch time! I'm not a fan of modern cars, so I tried looking up older 90's - 00's supercars for design elements, such as vents reminding shark gills and curvy, flowing lines. -Technical design Building a small scale independent suspension is no challenge at all, but add drive&steering and some limitations quickly appear. One of the main problems are the enormous cardan and CV joints that take up 3-6 studs, then the titanic 3-stud wide diff with some bracing and you're off to 1/10 or 1/8 scale. Now, using Nico71's method and applying some unusual design this axle was born: LDD FILE DOWNLOAD No matter the number of times people tell how good new hubs are, personally I find the old ones the best out there for compact MOCs. Being only 3 studs tall, they allow for super slim suspension, something that allows me to have a frame underneath them to serve as a base and to tilt the wishbones out of the way of the differential. Now, the main drawback is the suspension travel of only 1 - 1'5 studs, but for a supercar with 1 stud of ground clearance this is more than enough. My first prototype was even smaller - at just 19 studs wide, but the steering was way too high and too jerky, one of the reasons to go with a 1/11 scale. Wishbone geometry is even LDD legal, steering is off by a milimeter or two - close enough. Rear axle is a simplified version of this with standard wishbone direction. In regards of transmission, I currently have in mind an old school 4 speed manual, maybe a 4 speed sequential, driving a mini v10 - based off my own design used in the unimog WIP (with 4274 as pistons driven by technic cams) Suspension is currently missing from all wheels, but it'll be a matter of a few parts and should be done in the upcoming update. Cya later!
  8. Hey guys, here's a project I've recently started working on. It's been a while since I built anything as I've been quite busy for the past couple months. Anyways, this will be a supercar project. My 4th supercar so far, hence the name "Supercar IV". To be honest I've run out of creative names after giving "Red Beryl GT" to my BrickFair 2018 MOC, so I'm happy to take suggestions if any of you have a better name in mind. From the photos below this may seem like a mere rebuild of my Red Beryl GT, but this MOC comes with several upgrades: A 4WD drive system A 4-speed gearbox, controlled remotely This will be my first supercar to contain such features, and if everything turns out well this could be my most mechanically advanced supercar MOC up to date. The presence of a 4WD system makes it easy to install a 4-speed gearbox, as I took advantage of the two gears of different sizes on the old differential serving as a central differential. I wished that I was able to make the shifting mechanism smaller or use a stepper mechanism for it, but a stepper mechanism is a bit too big and complex to fit in the available space and there is too much structure around the gearbox to make the shifting mechanism any smaller. Although the mechanism appears obstructive as of now, building seats and a roof over it should help conceal it. I am also planning on installing Brickstuff LEDs to this MOC, as well as potentially adding a 4th motorized functions (such as motorized doors or a motorized rear wing). If you guys have any suggestions for me, please let me know. EDIT: I've decided to name the MOC "Red Beryl X", as it's essentially an upgraded sequel to my Red Beryl GT. Photos:
  9. Good People of Eurobricks, let me present you my latest build that goes by the fancy name of "The devil in sheep's clothing". Giving this name appeared to be a good idea at 4 am when I've finished editing the video, so now I stuck with it. It's been built in a 10 day window around christmas time undisturbed. Beside the fact that few of us have the rare opportunity to dedicate as much time to this hobby, it is indeed a honest mirror on my social life too. So be careful, what you wish for. So to the subject. It is a non motorised (pushy-pushy) supercar (ish) build with the rough scale of 1:8. And now I let the video do the fair bit of my task: So if you still here, let's talk about the details: Involves a very reliable gemstone gearbox from the hands of our beloved @Didumos69. This is the 4 speed 4wd sequential from the Rugged supercar I've made a few modifications on it. Replaced the rubber rings to shock absorbers on the gearstick-centering mechanism, but I'm not brave enough to call this an improvement. Geometric barriers made me do that. The rest of the drivetrain comes with 4 wheel drive and a V10 engine as follows: I kept it simple, one might say it's a waste of space, it could be fitted with an 8 speed gerbox easily. Or 16. But no. Old school. And ther is the steering too. Same stuff I've used in the 8880 evo. Suspension: Somewhere along the way it became a pushrod suspension, but it wasn't always that. The former setup (pic below) wasn't cooping very well with the weight of the car. Had similar symptoms like the chiron so I've started over and got to this pushrod setup above. Has a lot of advantages strong, highly adjustable by changing geometry, but has a downside. The lower pushrods -made out of connectors and 5.5L axles- are relatively easy to pull apart. Not by it's own weight, but - let say- when wheels are changed, got to be careful while puting them on. Next bit is the roll cage, but it is pretty self explanatory. I figured I need some scaffolding anyway, the connector body demands it in this size, so I went a step further and gave it a proper sceleton. One more about the roll cage. The rear wing, or spoiler. As it shows above it has a dead simple spring loaded mechanism that provides two positions to adjust. Namely: up and down. Also comes with interior. Made out of connectors of course. Don't know if it's comfy or not. One of my favorite details (one of the dumbest as well) is the armrest bit on the door. It follows up nicely to the dashbord. Gives the illusion of completeness. Also just realised that I made about 58 million pictures and non of them is catching this feature at all. Good on me. The body: It's a hell of a lot of connectors and axles. Apart from the side bits and doors it's a single layer on the whole car, yet holds itself together surprisingly well. Allthough if you choose to give it to a 4 year old to play with it, he can dissmantle it in 58 second. Hope you enjoyed, any question, don't hesitate, hit me. There wil be instructions. Data shows, it takes an avarage two and a half years for me to make them so you may expect it under the christmas tree in 2022.
  10. My Fellow Eurobrickers I’ve been a member of Eurobricks for almost 9 years. That’s 9 years of me rambling on about something I’m building or leaving less than imaginative comments about other people’s. Oh how time flies when you’re having fun. I’ve said many times that Eurobricks is the friendliest place on the ‘net and I stand by that (OK, so stand wasn’t the best choice of words but sit just didn’t sound right ). In my time here I’ve made many good friends and have received a great deal of support and much kindness. One such act of kindness came from Jeroen Ottens who contacted me a few months ago with what can only be described as an extraordinary offer. To design and build a model of my choosing. To say I was blown away is an understatement. As it came completely out of the blue and because for the life of me I couldn’t think what I’d done to warrant such an offer I dismissed it as a hoax but after an exchange of messages Jeroen convinced me the offer was indeed genuine. After a great deal of thought and knowing the enormous amount of time & effort that would be involved, I declined the offer. It was simply too much. Jeroen however, wouldn’t take no for an answer so I decided that this most unexpected offer, so very generous in its giving, could be made to benefit more than just myself so I said yes but on condition that the completed model be auctioned and 100% of the proceeds be given to the Fairy Bricks charity. Jeroen agreed. For those that don’t know, Fairy Bricks is a wonderful charity that raises money to enable them to buy LEGO sets and donate them to children’s hospices and hospitals. You can find out more about them here: www.fairybricks.org All this was several months and many, many emails ago but I’m pleased to say that the design & building of the model is now complete. I think it’s a beautiful build and something Jeroen should be very proud of. The auction is now live Pagani Huayra BC Charity Auction

    [MOC] Hypercar Concept 1

    Hello, feel the speed! It is my own hypercar concept inspired by real hyper and supercars. It is a 6 studs wide, studless model built from standard LEGO elements. The overall size is similar to the Speed Champions sets, but the wheels are from City sets as I wanted to keep the height to length ratio closer to the real sports cars. It can be combined with my other MOC Hybrid Truck which will be available on LEGO IDEAS soon too. If you like this car, please share and support the it on LEGO IDEAS: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/44e6dbbf-734f-4b38-84c7-2075b09495bb Many thanks!

  12. Crowkillers newest creation.... http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/440780
  13. The American Club Racing (ACR) model was introduced in 1999, starting with the Viper GTS (Phase SR II). Exclusive 1 by lachlan cameron, on Flickr This model had suspension and engine enhancements focused on maximizing performance in road racing and autocross environments. Horsepower was bumped to 460 hp (370 kW) in these models, while torque increased to 500 lb·ft (678 N·m). Weight was reduced by over 50 pounds (23 kg) by stripping the interior and removing other non-essential items such as the fog lamps (replacing them with brake ducts). Dodge Viper ACR by lachlan cameron, on Flickr In an attempt to stay true to its heritage, I've left this beast without bells and whistles in the name of speed.It sport a front clam shell hood, opening rear trunk, and spring back doors. The real catch here is in the speed and options. Dodge Viper ACR by lachlan cameron, on Flickr This Viper packs 2x Buwizz 2.0 (with Ludicrous mode) that power this monster directly to 2x Buggy motors. The gearing is accessible and can be swapped for a higher or lower gear in minutes. Ratios avail: 1:1 and 1:1.7. This model also has many build options: 1. 1 or 2 buwizz / 1 or 2 Lipo / 1 or 2 Sbrick 2. 2 Buggy motor or 2 XL motor 3. Fully manual car (just remove the electronics 4. Swap out the engine on the fly for a new one! Dodge Viper ACR by lachlan cameron, on Flickr The Viper also has a rake to it that I also replicated. 1 stud off the ground at the front, 2.5 studs at the rear.

  14. I like to present you my Lego town Steinbruck. The name is from Stein=brick & bruck(old German)=bridge. This is my current layout: My MOC and MOD buildings (more detail pictures in the albums; just click the pictures to get there): I'm planning a car wash for the Service Station and will build it in the next months. I also build digital, but can't afford all of them to build with bricks. Click to album.
  15. I've recently returned to LEGO, thanks in no small part to being given the 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS set as a birthday gift by my excellent friends. It was amazing to see how Technics sets have progressed since my childhood but was very dissapointed to find that there were no B model in the instructions. In my early days B models taught me that it was OK to pull apart a build and make something new and this was more than half the fun. Well there was nothing else for it but to make my own and here it is! The Lancia Stratos was an impressive, almost otherworldy machine that loomed large through my childhood and it seemed a fine choice for the orange parts of 42056. The wheels are the right diameter but a lot wider so they take up a lot more room inboard than the real thing and have what you might call a cheeky amount of overlap on the guards but I reckon it works here. I've kept the wheel base and track to scale. Everything opens and shuts like the original and there's a working 5 speed "H" pattern shift gearbox driving the transverse V6 in the back. You can add an additional part to activate reverse gear but this is not neccesary if you want to stay within the parts list of 42056. There are instructions available and the first chapter, the gearbox, is free so that you can see if you can work with them or not. They're available here: INSTRUCTIONS You'll find some unusual choices in terms of parts and placement but remember that this is an alternate build and the bricks available are somewhat limited. Since this is a B model and all the parts are sourced from 42056 it was tricky to get the form and functions that I wanted without too many compromises but the details of the MOC are: Dimensions : Studs = 69 x 56 x 23 cm = 55 x 44.6 x 19 Weight = 2.02 kg Part count = 2197 - 5 speed "H" pattern gearbox with optional reverse - working fake transverse V6 engine - steering via HOG that moves the wheels and steering wheel - front and rear independent suspension - openable bonnet, boot and doors I hope you like it and I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time in this community, I never knew what an AFOL was until a couple of weeks ago and now it turns out I am one - it's a brave new world for me!
  16. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my latest MOD: Koenigsegg Agera RS1 This car is one of my favorite road-going super/hyper/megacars, and therefore I decided to build it. To me and many others, Koenigsegg is a very special car manufacturer: It was founded in the nineties by Cristian von Koenigsegg, a man without any engineering education background and budget. On top of that, all Koenigseggs are handcrafted and are produced in limited quantities. I like the RS in particular, beceause it is IMO the most beautifull Koenigsegg and it holds the top speed world record. This car is not fully designed by me. @Pvdb build the Koenigsegg one:1 more than two years ago. The RS1 and One:1 have very similar Bodyworks and since Pvdb nailed that on his One:1, i decided to use his bodywork as a shell around my disigned chassis. In addition to that, I also used his door meganism, beceause I could not imagine me designing a better one Specifications: Dimensions 59x27x15 Studs Weight: 2600 g Estimated parts quantity: 2500 parts Powerfuntion elements: 2x PF AAA batteries, 2x PF V2 reciever ,4x PF L motor, 1x PF Servo motor, 1x PF M motor, 2x PF 50 cm wire The RS1 is basically the same as any other RS, but it has the one MegaWatt engine upgrade. The RS1 is specced in white with a black center stripe and it has many blue accents such as the interior, skirts, spoiler, diffuser and front splitter. Many of those parts of the RS1 have just a very thin stripe of blue painted on it. This means you can not replicate that with regulare LEGO parts. Stickers seemed like the only solution, but at some point the idea to use rubber bands for some accents popped in my mind. I only used this trick in the front splitter. Features: Easily removable Roof, like the real car Openable front trunk and engine bay Motorized dihedral synchro-helix actuation doors, Powered by a PF M motor Front double wishbone suspension with negative caster angle Rear triplex suspension with double wishbones Steering with working steering wheel, powered by a PF Servo motor Propulsion with working V8 engine, powered by 4x PF L motor I wanted both doors to be opeable by just one motor. This meant I had to make selector for wich door is connected to the motor. I had some free space in the center tunnel, so I decided to use the handbrake as a selector. Just behind the front wheels there is a driving ring wich can engage in two different clutch gears. Both clutch gears are connected to different doors. The motor and this meganism is placed underneath the trim. Here is the full 'transformer mode'. The front trunk and engine cover can be opened manually. If you look closely, you can see the battery and The L motors behind the seats. The recievers are placed behind the rear axle. Replicating the triplex suspension was for me a 'must have' on this car. It consists of two inclined shock absorbers and a horizontally placed pneumatic cilinder. The pneumatic cilinder is definately the most realistic looking way to make the central shock, but it is not practical. It offers resistance when extending and retracting, so I mounted some springs behind it to ensure that the model doesn't sag. In addition to all of that I also put some links on the suspension system. They are only there for an aesthetic reason though. finally, a video demonstration. Enjoy! Comments and questions are welcome!
  17. EDIT: Improved Interior -------- I’m a big fan of medium-size models. Ever since the first appearance of the curved panel (part 18944), I’ve been planning to make something out of it. And it couldn’t be more suitable than putting it on a supercar. Finally, presenting my first ever supercar - the Challenger. This MOC is equipped with 56 x 28 tires, making it a roughly 1:11.5 scale model. It’s really challenging to design a bodywork with complex curves for a supercar at this scale, hence the name Challenger. BODYWORK Normally wheel arch made of liftarms has flexible axles inside, but I choose to use rigid hose because it’s slightly better than soft axle in terms of keeping shape when the desired curve is short and subtle. Together with the curved panel, they create a beautiful silhouette. Even though this MOC looks like a Porsche, and indeed it is mainly based on Porsche design, but it is not a Porsche. Especially when you look at the rear end, it’s definitely not a typical Porsche style. Actually the whole bodywork referenced several car brands, it’s more of a combination of all my favorite parts from different design styles along with some of my own thoughts. DRIVETRAIN & SUSPENSIONS It is powered by 2 L motors, and steered by servo motor. Front suspension is a conventional independent suspension; rear suspension is a multi-link suspension which incorporates what is called a Watt’s link. It works just like a Panhard rod, but slightly different from Panhard rod. PERFORMANCE COMPROMISES & IMPERFECTIONS Due to limitation of the size, I really couldn’t put everything I want into this MOC. One big problem is the seat. Since the motors take too much interior space, the seats have to sit high on the motors, while in a real car they are much closer to the floor. And they don’t look like racing seats. Secondly the rear suspension is really stiff and suspension travel is short, so it couldn’t take full advantage of the Watt’s link. Also the absence of working headlights and taillights and the noncontinuous curve of this liftarm-made wheel arch are the compromises I have to make. Anyway, I’m basically satisfied with this MOC, it’s a good start of creating motorized medium-size supercar for me. Hope you guys like it And happy Chinese New Year!
  18. In 2017 the AMG company is celebrating its 50th jubilee - congratulations on this occasion! Now here is my tribute, although it wasn´t the main intention to build for that purpose. Back in 2015 we´ve had a fun project, the BMW M4 DTM which was echoed by fellows around here far more than I expected and it opened many opportunities for cooperation with other specialists to round up the MOC. Together with Lipko´s Audi RS5 DTM a Mercedes still was missing in the line-up of some collectors though. One of them, our dear EB fellow filus followed the idea strongly and thanks to his accompaniment we elaborated the AMG C63 DTM racecar of the 2015 season. The whole project turned out to generate more fun (and challenges) as assumed. To make everything more interesting, a lot more time has been invested than planned first and more diversity was created resulting in 2 different chassis – manual and PF. On top 2 different exchangeable liveries. The quality of the model was on priority and can be considered as far better than the quality of e.g. the BMW M4 DTM. Parts rarely fall off when the car meets bumps and walls. You can even lift the car by the roof without damaging anything. Testing both models with kids of all ages between 2 and 10 years showed some robustness and reliability above average. Thanks to all participants involved in the process! Custom stickers were provided by Jaap (Jaap Technic) again, who did a fabulous job, and these really made up the icing on the cake. Thorsten Spelz produced extraordinary detailed separate instructions for both chassis and both liveries which allows to choose the desired individual setup and color scheme. Sorry in advance that these can´t be offered for free, because too many careful efforts, costly parts and countless hours of work have gone into the project. Manual chassis: Most of the development has gone into the manual chassis. I had to try it once and I´m glad I managed to make a “simple” but fool proof shifting mechanism which relies on shock springs only. No rubber bands used and the shifting parts itself retract by gravity only (which doesn´t allow 10 shifts per second though, who cares). Especially the beautiful engine sound is a nice feature – btw it´s also a kind of gear indicator – after some time playing you can distinguish the actual selected gear by the different sound and resistance while pushing the car. A white 24-teeth gear has been installed between differential and gearbox, preventing gears from damage when pushed too hard – a bit similar to the 42056 Porsche setup ;-). - dimensions in studs (L/W): 61/25 - independent wheel suspension - 4 – speed gearbox - 2 manual shifters (up and down) and steering in comfortable position above the rear axle - working steering wheel - mini fake V8 engine RC chassis: Nothing special and no new big achievements here probably. Anyway I´m very satisfied how good all together works. The XL motor geared down 3:1 works flawlessly together with the L motor geared down by 5:3 ratio – absolutely no grinding at the differential between both motors which is another good indicator of efficiency. As you can see in the video, the cars´ speed is reasonable for indoor and is almost the same compared to the BMW (stronger) equipment. Comparison here: BMW is driven by 2 XL motors; gear reduction 3:1. - dimensions in studs (L/W): 61/25 - independent wheel suspension - remote driving and steering - LED lights - PF equipment: 1 XL motor + 1 L motor for drive, 1 servo motor for steering, 1 pole reverser, 3 LED pairs (2 front, 1 rear), 1 extension wire, 1 battery, 1 IR V2 receiver, 1 IR remote - SBrick compatible (replaces receiver, remote and pole reverser) Bodywork dimensions in studs: length 61 studs (without rear spoiler); width 25 studs (without mirrors); height 15,5 studs - openable doors - easily removable rear spoiler and engine hood - custom stickers corresponding the looks of the real cars - roll cage under the roof - Technic panels count: 51 “Silberpfeil” livery - #6 Robert Wickens The new orange parts from the 42056 set allowed replicating the distinguished color scheme of this nice livery. I like especially that the round shaped roof could be made using the 13x3 bowed panels. Unfortunately Silver beams and panels are not really available, so these parts have been made in white. The stickers with the particular energy tin make it very special IMO. “AMG” livery - #3 Paul di Resta The white/black color combo may seem nothing spectacular nowadays, but with the slight red accents and the stickers in particular it makes an equal counterpart to the other variant. The roof couldn´t be built the same way and its shape turned out a bit different, unfortunately the new 13x3 bowed panels, to be released in 2H in black color, were too far on the horizon during the design process. Anyway the overall parts availability is great and I guess this version will be the preferred option for most who want to rebuild it. And here the mandatory videos: More pictures can be seen at my bricksafe. Instructions and stickers are available. Enjoy and have fun !
  19. Hi, I have been working on a new 1:8 scale supercar, codename Silvestros. Here is a first picture of the chassis: So far it has the following features: 4-wheel drive 4-wheel steering (with positive camber caster & Ackerman geometry) 4-wheel independent pushrod suspension 4D+N+R sequential gearbox pneumatic diskbrakes on all wheels V10 fake engine The steering is dependent on the gear you are in: R : front wheel steering 1: the wheels steer against each other 4: crabsteering 2-3: proportionally in between Here is a view from the underside where you can see the linkages needed to control the steering of the wheels: I plan to include the following features as well: fancy doors (opening upwards or backwards or whatever as long as it is not regular ) convertible roof maybe adjustable seats What I would like your opinion on is the gearbox. As it is now it is a small 4D+N+R gearbox. The good thing about that is that it fits nicely below the low mounted engine (which should give some room for the roof later on) and leaves quite some space between the seats and the rearwheels for mechanisms for the doors, the seats and the . The bad thing of course is that it is only a 4-speed gearbox, which is a bit lame for a supercar... So what do you prefer? An 8D+N+R gearbox at the expense of some of the other functionality or keep it as is and fill the space with the other mechanisms? I am not going to model this car after an existing car, which should give me some freedom with the styling. And this is not going to be an exclusive model or anything, just a regular buildinginstructions for a small fee kind of project. Leg godt, Jeroen
  20. Hello fellow Technic fans, let me present to you my tribute model to the well known, iconic set 8880 As a new member I should introduce myself, but I did that already in the forum designed for the very purpose so I just link that here http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=134093 and we can jump to the main subject. I've been encouraged by a commenter on youtube who is a member here to share this MOC of mine on this forum as maybe this will give you a rest after the frustration caused by the much anticipated 42056. Don't get it wrong, I don't mean to fill the gap it left (I read the topic too and share the feeling), but hopefully can give you a few minutes of entertainment. I admit it is a sensitive piece of history to touch, but I hope you recognize that the respect towards the original model what was driving my hands while I was designing this plastic homage. Probably some of you have already seen the video on the youtube. For those who didn't let me link it: Instead of making a new description I'll use the one that I made for the vid and pepper it with some images: The original set 8880 has been released in 1994. Sadly that time I was living my dark age (life without lego). Now it's been 4 years that I got back in business, dark age is over and this set is weightly responsible for that change in my life. First I was just reading about it on Blackbird page. Long story short I could manage to get one, and as an old school lego fan (being child in the 80's) it straight enchanted me and determined probably my whole life (hobbywise at least). In the same time I really admire the modern studdless system of lego and it inevitably ended up in the demand in me to build a studless version of it. I've built it first in 2013, but in lack of sources (parts and talent) it wasn't really desirable, nor "smart". Since then I keep rebuilding it time to time and always ends up better and better. According this I wouldn't say this is the last or the best of it, but at the moment this is the stage of its evolution. This is where the name I gave came from. A few words about the details: Body: As you can see I did not use panels but kept the wireframe like appearance as it is one of the benchmark of the original set. Speaking of which I have to admit I did change the shape of the front a lot, even eliminated the concealed headlights due to the feeling that time has passed and it's not cool anymore. But to pay back what I took, I've designed a hood what follows the geometrical concept of the boot. If you listen closer, when the hood opens, the headlights are sliding backward. Rest of the body I think speaks for itself. Interior: Not much to say about it, seats, dash , keeping the colour scheme. Gearbox: Now that is a tricky one. That was the first problem I've been facing with as due to the size of the model I needed a narrow 4 speed gearbox with central differential, but I could not find a decent one anywhere. Crowkillers Paul had the 6 speeder, but it was too wide for my car and Sariel's 4 speeder has been designed for two wheel drive. So I've spent the next month and a half to develop a new one from scratch. Of course if there is a central diff it should be lockable, so it is. And it makes a very compact structure with the gearbox itself what comes handy in modular building. Edit: that was years back. From here it seems rediculously long time, but I let you decide. Here is a deidcated video about this gearbox: Steering: Unlike in the original, there is no ackermann geometry in my model, but please blame lego as it is the field where the part developement goes backward. Anyway the front steering is pretty simple, but for the rear I had to use a rod mechanism, since the compact gearbox left no room for an axle to go trough without compromising the aesthetics. It comes however with certain benefits, as with minor modification on the linking can change the steering lock of the rear wheels. I've applied the smalest as I've found it more realistic. The real life 4 wheel steered cars have only 3-5 degrees on the rear. Ground clearence adjustment: No witchcraft, a worm gear and an 8 tooth gear paired up on each wheel to lift and lower the shockers trough an axle. That's it. Friend of my accidentally discovered (by opening the boot) that this coupe can be converted easily to a hatchback... To be honest I did not consider this as a requirement when I was designing the model. I've made a couple of colour variations too as it appeared above.

    [WIP] Sports Car

    I loved the building process for the 3T Sports Sedan so much that I started another car. The 3T car needed a friend, and like every car maker who creates a competent sedan and follows it up with a CUV, I will too. Nope. I'm making a sports car. Again, this will be a mid-scale manual sports car with following features in order of priority: Suspension Rear wheel drive HOG steering Steering wheel Sequential 4 speed transmission (currently this one, thanks @Didumos69) Mid engined Flat 4 Discrete gear-change function Design language similar to the 3T Here is the first draft with a Porsche Cayman in the back of my mind, and you'll note a couple of problems already. The suspension is set, and will not change much. The hardpoints are also set, so the wheel base will not change, the rear overhang, height, and width will not change, and the seat and steering wheel placement will not change. Everything else may require some shifting, such as the length and front overhang, and internal placement of components. I do not like the HOG placement, and connecting the steering wheel is going to cause some problems at this point. So I could move the transmission back to the center of the car, and connect the steering wheel and place the HOD on the dash. I could also move the engine behind the rear axle which could lower it by one stud, and bring 6 pistons. But then there is no way this does not finish as a 911. What do you think. Move the engine to the back? Or keep the cabin of the car cluttered with steering and drivetrain parts? I do not have a solution for the changeover yet, so will be coming once I know where everything is placed.
  23. Hey! I have to say that this is my first lego supercar, as i'm more used to trial trucks and trophy trucks. I worked on this one for about three months and the goal was to get a supercar over 1kg, wich I barely passed. First, some overall pictures of the car. Yea, I know, i've got some pretty bad panel gaps around the rear wheels and the whole back of the car isn't too great but it actually was built for the functions. Moving on to the manual functions the car has: Opening hood revealing the RTC system (locking) Opening butterfly doors Opening engine bay cover (locking) +the whole rear lifting in 2 sections to provide access to the BuWizz (large one is also locking) One huge challenge was to get a curved roof at such a small scale, wich you can see in more detail here: It's also fully suspended, front is independent with MacPherson and rear is pendular. I guess I could've squeezed something independent in the rear too but it was too little space and I was running out of time. Functions powered by BuWizz (wich is located behind the rear axle) Drive with an L motor, working V8 engine Steering with an M motor, working steering wheel Linear 2-speed gearbox integrated in the chassis powered by an M motor Here's a little game: Try to find all the motors in the car. Also, I would like to know what do you think about it.

    [MOC] Project Supercar X

    Final: I present Supercar X, my second giant supercar and the largest I have ever built. It is fully manual and has a four-speed gearbox, steering, and a V8 in the rear. It also has opening doors and full independent suspension. More pictures in latest post! ~~~WIP Topic~~~ Hi all! I was debating whether to post this as a WIP topic because it kind of diminishes the "wow" factor, but I really need some opinions. After some small cars, I decided to go big with this next supercar and see what happens. Here is the chassis so far: (sorry for bad pic, last-minute) It has a multilink suspension for the rear (reverse engineered from one of @nicjasno's older videos) and a double wishbone for the front. It is rear-wheel drive. I added a V8 engine instead of a V10 engine for space. It has a 4-speed gearbox as well. Here is a pic of the rear suspension I took earlier. I also have had trouble with the switch for the gearbox. Instead of a regular one, I would like to try one that has a pivot point 8880-style, but with a regular switch. Please give me an opinion on this model, many aspects need to be changed! -TechnicRCRacer
