  1. Current: 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
  2. 1:17 Tesla Roadster 2020

    G'Day everyone, I'm Avanish Shrestha from Australia, currently at uni. It hasn't been too long since I started sharing some creations with the Lego community—but here's the first one from 2018, a Tesla Roadster, previewed at an event in November 2017. I hope you enjoy! Franz von Holzhausen—Chief Designer. Credits to Rolands Kirpis for the door hinge design.
  3. 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
  4. The new Lamborghini Centenario represents a new, extremely precious piece in Lamborghini's one-off strategy. It is a perfect example of the innovative design and the engineering skills of the bull-branded manufacturer. The best tribute to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mr. Ferruccio Lamborghini, a man who managed to create a world-class brand, and who always believed that nothing is impossible, thus producing legendary and extraordinary vehicles that made history for super sports cars. The front Suspension was built By my brother DugaldIC, to ensure accuracy to the real supercar. The front suspension is work of art, blending real supercar suspension into Technic Lego. Thanks again for all your support @DugaldIC and @KD123! Lamborghini Centenario by lachlan cameron, on Flickr The Car sports front, rear and engine lights, controlled separately with 2 S-bricks and 2 Lipo Batteries. The gearing is slightly more compact to the NSX, but same gear ratio. The gear shifter turns the front lights on and off, the rear wing deploys manually, and each door has its own M-motor. The front hatch has just enough room for a travel bag, matching the red and black colour combo. I have created structure differently by using the center console for a row of vertical 5x7 frames that provide a stiffness through the center. I have modified this car to have Chrome rims, actuators, pistons and exhaust. Check out this BL store for great prices on chrome products: https://store.bricklink.com/Bubul?p=Bubul&itemID=124734521#/shop?o={"invID":"124734521"} Chrome engine bits I've left a few gaps to show off the suspension in the bodywork... And added windshield wipers. The doors are slightly revised with more movement upward and outward. Inspiration: Transformer Mode - Lamborghini Centenario
  5. Hi, I would like to present my latest commissioned MOC, the Ferrari 458 Spider: It is 1:10 scale replica of this iconic Ferrari. It has the usual features (independent suspension, openable doors, fake V8 engine, steering, etc.) and a few more noteable functions: A 4-speed sequential gearbox (thanks to @Didumos69 for inspiration of the stepper mechanism) A convertible roof Here is a video showcasing the functions: It was a real pleasure to design and build this car. Especially the rear end is a maze of functions with the mechanism for the roof, the gearbox, the rear suspension and the fake engine all cramped into that little space. And of course I also still had to get some beams across as well to give the model enough rigidity to make the suspension useful. I have rebuild that section dozens of times until it suddenly all snapped into place. The stickers were made by @jaaptechnic, including a few you can't see on the photos . Comments and questions are appreciated. Leg godt, Jeroen
  6. The 2017 Ford GT is effectively a GTE race car converted to road use. After the 2016 race car won at Le Mans, exactly 50 years after Ford's historic win with the GT40, they had to build some road cars for homologation purposes. These road cars have a 3.5-litre twin-turbo Ecoboost V6 producing 647 horsepower, and an extreme amount of downforce from the active rear wing, diffusers, front splitter and those gigantic flying buttresses on the sides. The interior is sparse to reduce weight. The initial allocation sold for around $500,000 each, and Ford received more than 5,000 applications for 500 cars. Getting hold of a car is extremely difficult, and even those who are successful must wait for several years to receive their car. The recent incident of Ford announcing that they would sue John Cena for selling his car (supposedly for profit) and breaking the terms of the contract is a testament to how sought-after this car is. After several months of rather intermittent building, I've finally finished what turned out to be a prime example of how not to manage a project. Anyhow, at least the car is finished so I can get to work on building something I'll hopefully enjoy more... Initially, I planned for this to be a fast RC vehicle, using every single motor that I own. That meant three EV3 Large motors, a PF XL and a PF L for drive, an EV3 Medium for the gearbox and a PF M for the steering. However, as I chased the GT's distinctive styling, the car got heavier, more fragile and closer to the ground. In the end, the car would barely move in anything other than 1st gear, and it would scrape its bodywork on the ground. That's what happens when you change tack mid-way though a build. However, at least I think I can call this my best-looking car model to date. The car has a 4-speed sequential gearbox mounted behind the rear axle to save space and take advantage of the car's huge overhangs. There is no suspension to reduce complexity and because the model is a little too narrow for an independent driven axle to fit. All the motors in the drivetrain are hard-coupled together (yes, I know it's a little naughty, but the gear ratios are closely matched and the stresses put on them by this are probably dwarfed by the load caused by driving the car uphill). The steered axle is extremely simple with just a little return-to-center mechanism. This is in order to leave enough space for the PF battery box under the bonnet. There was just about enough room to have a convincing-looking cabin and seats, although it is considerably smaller (compared to the size of the whole car) than in real life. The rear wing is mounted on a scissor lift system to raise or lower it - there wasn't much space over the gearbox so I had to resort to using those ugly yellow beams. The doors are hinged about the A-pillars in order to give that characteristic motion, opening both upwards and outwards. An elastic band puts some tension on the mechanism and keeps the door either in the closed or in the open position. Styling-wise, the Ford GT is quite a challenging car, but at least it is more angular than curved. I did my best to focus on the characteristic features: the two big vents on the bonnet, the giant side vents and flying buttresses, the red circular brake lights and the carbon sill running along the length of the sides, part of which lifts up with the doors. I don't have that many pieces, so I had to do a few colour-mismatches, but I tried to keep to the grey theme. In the end, the car is easily-recogniseable as a GT, and that's what counts to me. Here is a video showing pictures of the car and a time-lapse of building. Unfortunately there's no driving footage (it would be pretty underwhelming anyway), but you can see the opening of the doors and raising of the rear wing. Music is composed by me as usual. My next build will be what this one failed to be: an incredibly fast RC car. This time, I'm going for minimal bodywork and no gearbox.
  7. Hi, I'd like to present my latest MOC, a 1:10 replica of the Mercedes-AMG GT R. It is a manual car with the following functions: independent suspension on all wheels steering with HoG and working steering wheel V8 fake engine working lights (with custom lighting bricks) opening doors and hood adjustable seats (with a gear behing the seat) adjustable spoiler (with another gear behind the seat) detailed interior and engine bay a 4D+N+R gearbox an active aerodynamic spoiler (this is some kind of marketingbuzzword from Mercedes-AMG) in the front which opens when 4th gear is engaged four wheel steering with speed (read gear) dependent behaviour: - in 1st gear the wheels steer against each other - in 2nd gear only the front wheels steer - in 3rd gear the rear wheels steer a bit with the front wheels - in 4th gear the rear wheels steer with the front wheels Here is a video showcasing the functions: This model was a first for me in a couple of ways: It has 3D-printed rims (thanks @SevenStuds for the design) It has 3rd party lighting from Lifelites It has custom stickers from @jaaptechnic Here are some shots with the lights on: And here are a top and front view: As usual comments and questions are welcome.

  8. Ever since set 42039 hit the shelves, I feel attracted to building Le Mans prototype cars, due to their characteristic shape and almost futuristic looks. So I think you can imagine the delight I felt when during my random stroll on the interwebs a few months back, I stumbled upon the following concept car. Back then, I tried building a Lego version of it and got quite far. But due to lack of pieces I had to abandon early. I have since bricklinked a thing or two and want to redo the model from scratch. I think the actual car doesn't even exist in reality yet, and I think this is actually a rendered image. If I remember correctly, it is a concept that they want to try to build in reality in 2020. Personally I think it's the least car-like looking car there is (if you only count serious car models). If you forget the wheels and decals, it could be modern architecture as well. What's also cool is how the black wheel arches are actually almost shaped like Technic panels. I will be using the wheels of 8070, 42039 et al. These are slightly less than 9 studs in diameter, which justifies the following side view: The planned functions are: front steering rear drive, driving a fake engine suspension doors (powered by the damped springs also used in 8448) There's little space, so I don't count on having a gearbox. With a bit of luck, I can find room for a 2-speed, which at least gives the idea of a gearbox. But it probably won't be a proper "supercar" in the Lego sense of the word. We'll see, and I might need some help from you guys with this later on. OK, let's start. All I have so far is the two suspension modules. Here's the front suspension: First thing you might notice is, I'm using the long wishbone arms. Personally this is what makes the suspension much more interesting to myself, because it's more challenging to make it work and looks much more like F1-type suspension. Also you see I'm using only 1 small spring per wheel. The suspension travel is very little (about 1 stud) so I hope having 1 spring per axle is enough. It'll have to be though, because the mechanism isn't very strong, so a stronger spring will result in parts coming loose. The black axle on the left is the steering input, to that's where the rest of the car will come. Thanks to the pins with pin hole, the 5x7 frame is pretty rigidly attached to the whole thing. The chassis will be connected to that 5x7 frame. The rear suspension is unsteered, and therefore less spectacular. But it holds the differential: Those two modules is where I am right now. I do want to have said beforehand that I'm really not good at recreating existing car bodies, so it will be difficult and I will take some slack here and there. But how fortunate is it, that Lego has the perfect color for this car. Older Technic fans know these panels from the great Offroader 8466 and its smaller brother 8465. I'm actually not even a fan of the old panels, but this car is really the perfect opportunity to put them to use (and indeed, I bricklinked some, so I have a nice collection of them). Unfortunately though, these four pairs of panels are the only pieces in this color (except a very rare ribbed hose I don't have). So the body will necessarily be a bit crude. A body with modern pieces would probably be better, but I want to see how far I can come using these good old panels. When we get there, your feedback will be very welcome. The gaps will be filled up with black, I think. But a word of warning: I will probably add some details in a second color, simply because I find black a bit boring to work with. OK, that's it for the opening post. I hope you don't mind all the rambling I do between the pics. Next up will be a basic chassis connecting the two modules together at the right distance.
  9. Hello all, this is my first time posting here. Feel free to tell me if I have done anything wrong. Black Aura Supercar Youtube Video, Trailer, Instructions Part 1, Bricksafe Two XL-motors for drive, one M-motor for steering, one M-motor for shifting, one M-motor for the spoiler, and two M-motors for the doors. Has a turning and tiltable steering wheel, working lights with switch in cabin, four-speed transmission, easily removable battery pack, spoiler that folds in and out VERY neatly, openable gullwing-like doors, openable and removable rear, working V12 engine with visible chain near the battery pack, all-wheel independent suspension with three springs a wheel, and finally, an opening hood with stand to keep it open. Built purely from imagination and was not intended to look like any specific car. More than six pounds! (I think it was something in between six pounds and seven ounces or eleven ounces. I do not remember). A video: Some of the pictures from Bricksafe /\:

Flickr: https://flic.kr/s/aHskvSNFP8 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/loxlego/ Such was the vision for NSX GT3. This was my inspiration: NSX GT3 inspiration by lachlan cameron, on Flickr This project began with the intention on designing the fastest 1:8 scale car in my lineup. Thanks to @Kalps1811 for helpin me find this beauty and @DugaldIC for some suggestions that were at the perfect time. I've really wanted to build a wide body, low racecar for some time now and the body style of this car allowed more room fit all the batteries into the framework for extra power. Acura NSX GT3- outdoors by lachlan cameron, on Flickr With the two battery packs and 2 S-bricks the power to the XL motors doubled, and had enough torque to also double up on the gearing. Acura NSX GT3 Type R by lachlan cameron, on Flickr I'm proud to say the gears have never skipped once. The bodywork is 3/4 studs off the ground with ultra tight suspension. Two m-motors are tucked into the main console, each powering a single door.

  11. @Jim's stellar review of the 42056 gave me this idea. The chassis itself is mostly done, but I wanted to create this topic to get some tips because I am no supercar expert. Here is the chassis: It has independent suspension, RWD, 4speed gearbox, and 3 steering modes: front, 4 wheels, crab steering. Shifting is the interesting part: -if gear 1 or 2 is selected, 4 wheels steering is selected. -if gear 3 or 4 is selected, crab steering is selected. -if no gear is selected, front wheel steering is selected. This is (at least somewhat) realistic because: (From Jim's review) The gearbox: So that's what it is. I will post 1 more update before putting this to rest while I wait for parts to arrive. So leave a comment! BrickbyBrickTechnic
  12. I made this model a long time ago, and I just figured that I'll share it here too. Features: PF RC driving by 2 XL motors PF RC steering by a servo motor PF RC opening doors by 2 M motors working front PF lights Independent suspensions on all wheels Openable hood Working fake V8 engine The white tubes for the body are not official LEGO parts, I bought them in a local supermarket in the party equipment section. The video shows the old version of the model which did not have the doors motorized and the back slightly different. The pictures with white background are the new version.

  13. Hello everyone. After a very long time, I would like to present you my new creation. Its a BMW vision M power. As you will see later, the vehicle has no special features, since from the very beginning, the idea of building was primarily in the design and form of the car. The idea was of a typical character in the BMW style. A kind of prestigious futuristic retro sports style with recognizable BMW lines. PF components are: - 2 L motors for drive - 1 servo motor for steering with funtcional steering wheel - 1 M motor for 3 speed linear gearbox. It was the worst decision and design in my life for this gearbox.When I built and tested, it all seemed to work wery good.Now it is finished and definitely a total breakdown. After eight months of building this car, I simply do not go all over and repair it all. There is no chance. - 2 V2 recievers - 1 big batery box Some pictures. And my favorite photo. And the video. Thanx for watching. Best regards, Valter
  14. Hi guys, I couldn't find any pictures for a long time, but finally found one. It is only one picture, blurry, but shows it well. This was with about 1600 unsorted pieces. Btw, those are 42000 wheels.
  15. Hi everyone, This will be my first project in a while, and my first project here. I want to try and make a 2WD (hopefully FWD, but RWD is fine if things get difficult), 4-cylinder car with a transversely mounted engine and gearbox assembly, and hopefully as a studless construction. I started mocking-up some of the gearbox in LDD (I know, not the best tool), and the results have not been too encouraging (space-wise). I haven't yet figured how to post photos, but I will when I do
  16. Hi everyone, I am making a new lego technic supercar, but I have a question. For my propulsion system I want to use 2 XL and 2 L motors. Since the XL and L motor have different rpm (XL 110 and L 195), I don't know what the best way is to conect them. If I have done the Maths correct the L motor should be geared down by 1:1.77. I am trying to connect them in that gearratio but the best option I have found so far is to gear the L motor down by 1:1.66t (using the 20 tooth and 12 tooth gear). Other suggestions are welcome! When powering the motor the sound is just a little bit different, but I dont know if I am damaging the motors and getting all of the torque.....
  17. Current status: 8+N+R gearbox, D-N-R shifter, and the engine done. Also some color matchings and a little bit of interior --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hello, everyone. Today, I would like to introduce my new moc in progress (and the first to post here). It's Mercedes AMG GT R. (in 1:8, with porsche wheels&Tires) (From https://www.autoevolution.com/news/black-mercedes-amg-gt-r-does-insane-nurburgring-passes-110677.html) I'm planning to make it in black, as 3x11 curved black panels are available now. If amg gtr convertible model comes out, I want to try the convertible mechanism, too. My current status is only up to the drivetrain (engine&gearbox) And this is it. It's a 8 speed gearbox, with D-N-R which I built by myself. At first, I was goint to use charbel's 8 speed gearbox, which is awesome, but soon found out that the gear ratios aren't realistic (the last gear is 45 times faster than the first gear.) This gearbox is also combination of a common 4 speed gearbox and 2 speed gearbox, but different in the fact that the 2 speed gearbox is shifted every 90 degrees, and the 4speed gearbox is shifted every 180 degrees. And that resulted in a realitic gear ratio... in which the last gear is 6.25 times faster than the first gear. The hardest part was the mechanism to make one shift in the 4 speed gearbox while the paddel shift (which is not built yet) is shifted twice. The mechanism is here: Here's the sifting video: Under the chassis, you can see the D-N-R selector, which the gearstick to shift it is not built yet. As I only have times on Sunday afternoons, the progress will be very slow, but I will finish it sometime, so don't be angry even if the progress is slow. Comments are welcome, and advices are also welcome. Thanks. Oh, I missed some explanations on the gearbox. The 4 speed gearbox is just the regular one, with 1:1 to 1:5, and the 2 speed gearbox is 1:1 to 1:1.25 which doesn't work yet as currently I don't have any chains. The chains are also linked to reverse gear.
  18. Here is an updated post. I put the original post in this spoiler. Video! And some actually good pics:
  19. [MOC] Lego Aston Martin Vulcan

    My moc of the Aston Martin Vulcan, at the moment it's my favourite moc. First saw the car while watching Grand Tour and loved it. The front of the car isn't very accurate but overall this is a satisfactory build. Hope you guys like it ! Regards, KMP FB : www.facebook.com/kmpmocs Flickr : www.flickr.com/photos/149274215@N03/
  20. Crowkillers newest creation.... http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/440780
  21. Hello! msk here. This model is my second 42055 C model so I named D model. First here. Harftrack vehicle with rubber band gun. I can't write long so let's start. Conneced car with stand. Don't have any physical connection so can disconnect easly. Just lifting car using hand. Car function 1. 6 speed gearbox 2. custom-made differencial gear 3. openable trunk 4. working inline-4-engine 5. openable bonet and working cooling fan 6. working steering wheel Stand function 1. 2-speed motorise wheel roller 2. HOG steering tester Now what? INSTRUCTION! * My all instruction is LDD-photo sequence. What is this? Watch my instruction. Sorry. Example here. Engine cam part.
  22. Hi builders and collectors, This MOC started as plain chassis with two-speed GB, basic steering geometry, stabilizers and 4-wheel independent suspension (rear drive) with 3 cylinder fake engine in front. So, technically it is not a supercar you would imagine. Then I built the body around it. It started as blue, but due to lack of parts in this colour I had to "repaint" it, and start building it in white with orange highlights to make it look interesting. Two months after finishing (called so for lack of better names) bodywork, I realized, that four speed gearbox from non-presented project would fit there. And it have (after some minor upgrades and chassis-rebuilds, of course :D) Photos: Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr (more photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/112259733@N07/albums/72157682676686045) The instructions for the chassis can be found on Rebrickable: http://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-8882/Horcikdesigns/rallycar-chassis/#comments I see this car as ancestor of my previous Yubihama II.
  23. Hi everybody ! So, this is the MOC I have been working on since September. It's a supercar inspired by the Aston Martin Vulcan and the Icona Vulcano. My goal was to actually have a clean and solid build. Functions : - Openable front and back hood and doors - Direction controlled by a HOG or by the steering wheel - Front and rear suspension - 4 speed gearbox with an H6 fake engine Design : The car is mostly inspired by the Icona Vulcano in the front and the Vulcan in the rear. The spoiler attachement and the exhaust are inspired from the P1 GTR. Full flickr gallery : https://www.flickr.com/photos/143412814@N02/albums/72157682940493853
  24. Hi, I decided to make my own supercar after seeing numerous topics. My current chassis has a 4-speed gearbox and independent suspension.
  25. I took myself on the quest to create a new supercar, in a new scale. Normally, when I build suprecars I aways use the wheels from 8070, 42039 and the like, which is about a 1:10 scale. This is smaller than many cars by other builders, who use the larger tyres from 42000 or more recently the Porsche. So I set myself the challenge to build a car in the somewhat larger scale of 1:8. Which is, I'll be using these wheels which I'd bought myself as a little present :) It won't be a particular existing model, but I used a plan of a Ford GT to find the measurements relative to the wheels. It will be 27 to 29 wide. This is quite a bit larger than I'm used to, so this will be interesting. I'm relatively good at doing the chassis, so the largest challenge will be the body. It will not be motorized. Here's the front axle. I want to have it all-wheel drive, so the rear axle will be similar, except the steering. The arm for the suspension on the lower wishbone is relatively long, which means the suspension travel is just about one stud. I always try to limit the suspension travel, because then the wheel arch will not need to be so huge. Also, with less travel, the suspension will be stiffer, so that one spring per wheel will still hold the weight. The second unit I started is the gearbox and interior. As usual, I try to do something with color, and I selected green for the interior. I got myself a few extra small panels, which are super useful for finishing touches to almost everything. As you can see, the seats are adjustable; they slide on an axle and the backrest can be inclined (no gearing though). Similar to ye olde 8865 :) The gearbox will be 5+R with 1, 3, 5 forward and 2, 4, R backward, just like in some real cars. The gearing is a known design I used previously, I believe it's not even my design but it's perfect, so I just copy it. It uses the old driving rings, so that explains the 1/2 stud offset. So far, this is sort of the progress/plan. The connection between the two modules is temporary, because the space between them is way too large. The whole seats unit will move forward, but I'm not sure yet how much. The position of the rear wheels is guessed to be approximately there. (Yes, I know the tow truck isn't finished yet. I'll finish it, but my local LUG has a meeting soon and I want to present more than one model, so I will take this one there aswell.)
