  1. Hello everyone, My new creation is a big Tatra. It is my first 8x8. All problems of size, weight, friction and powertrain were the most challenging for me. Total weight: 2790g 2 hard coupled XL motors for 8 wheel drive without differentials. They are connected to each output of V2 receiver #2, powered by 8878 battery of left side. (Motors of the rest are connected to V2 #1, powered by 8878 of right side) 1st and 2nd axle are steered in different angles by 2 L motors. M motor for 2 speed heavy duty gearbox. 9:1 (high) 25:1 (low) Working steering wheel and V12 engine. Openable hood and doors. External roll cage and LED lights are easily removable. This is my suspension setup. The central axle is free from the friction by the force of suspension movement. Each 6.5L springs limit the angle of swinging half-axles. In these limited angles, bevel gears smoothly engage. Since the building process was complicated, I haven't made instructions yet. Hopefully it will be available in a few weeks. I drove it in high gear in most part of the video. Despite heavy weight, not a single gear was damaged. In low gear, it is surprisingly powerful. Video: Building instructions and more pictures: https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/117021167471864977943/albums I hope you will like it!
  2. Hi everyone! I'm glad to present you the third version of my trial truck with a long prehistory and a slightly unusual design Lego Indominus Mk3 by Alexey Tikhvinsky, on Flickr Some history now: In the far-distant 2015 @Lucio Switch has built a titanic airfield firetruck that made a strong impression on me. The stunning set of functions, motorization, scale and appearance of this monster inspired me to build a modification. Searching for parts and construction took about a year. I wanted to not just change the color scheme or somehow improve already perfect truck - I wanted a total rework of the entire transmission, body and concept in general As a result, we got a truck with a loud name "Indominus Rex" and a claim to conquer the off-road. The 4 most powerful motors (5292) produced by Lego ever, differentials with limited slip (thanks @efferman for idea), planetary gear reduction in each of the eight wheels - all this allowed to overcome quite serious obstacles, even with weight of the model (6 kilograms) and dimensions (92x25x25 centimeters). Modification, judging by the opinions of AFOLs and the victory at the MOCs exhibition in Moscow Megabricks museum, turned out quite good. The flatbed body, a thin (3 pins) frame, a relief roof with air intakes and off-road rubber did their work - the truck moved away from the original as much as possible with the help of some solutions and design features. In the same 2016, in a New Year eve, I made another modification of the ACT truck. Indominus-2 was created specifically to participate in the winter truck trail competition in Moscow. No differentials, reduced weight (3.5 kilograms) with the same dimensions. Design was primitive, while preserving the common features of the original "front end". No serious ambition in the construction of this truck, it was initially clear that with its dimensions, it will not pass the road for off-road trucks. As a result, of course, the distance was overcome, but at the cost of one repair and loss of drive on three wheels out of eight (actually twelve, the two rear axles were with twin wheels) But a large number of positive emotions and feedback pushed me to an idea that this truck has not been exhausted yet. There were several attempts to build modifications of the same airfield truck in different versions, which ended, however, at the stage of creating the chassis (I wanted to do something fundamentally more light and durable). Later, I was distracted by building the truck with a crane from, again, @Lucio Switch This truck, being assembled completely in the original version, absorbed almost all my electrics, the technic frames and, in general, almost all the parts (17 motors, three battery packs, 13 meters of pneumohoses, 16 pneumatic cylinders and 131 technic panels). The idea of building another truck on the same scale from the remaining assortment of parts seemed simply insane. And at the beginning of 2018 I found a solution to two problems at once. I figured out how to build both an original and not too expensive in parts truck, which at the same time would inherit design and performance from its two predecessors. Why build the next four-axle monster, when the 4x4 format for trucks is still looks pretty? In addition, there was an opportunity to test my strength in terms of creating a MOC, and not modification. Lego Indominus Mk3 by Alexey Tikhvinsky, on Flickr I left only some recognizable elements from the original truck, which allowed to identify it as Indominus-3: сontours of the cabin, individual elements of the body kit, doors. The functional was done with an eye to the fact that this truck will participate in the February truck trial in Moscow (by the way, riding at -15C degrees turned out to be very "fun", even filming was not possible, everything was frozen, including phones and cameras). But, despite the "competitive" orientation, the equipment turned out to be more like the first version of Indominus: limited slip differentials (three pieces: front, rear and center), chains on wheels (homemade, from the jewelry chain), complex exterior and interior (with Duplo penguins!) Lego Indominus Mk3 by Alexey Tikhvinsky, on Flickr In additional: old pneumatic shock absorbers (very soft and long-stroke), anti-roll bar on both axles, portal gear reduction in pair to wheel planetary gear reduction. I used: 2х Buwizz v2, 4x RC buggy motor (5292), 1x Servo motor, 4x extension wire and Android app made by @imurvai to control this truck with gamepad (works very well and smooth, by the way) Lego Indominus Mk3 by Alexey Tikhvinsky, on Flickr In the end, in my opinion, this truck turned out quite bright and sturdy, and even with 4.5 kilograms weight can handle some offroad in the conditions of russian winter Lego Indominus Mk3 by Alexey Tikhvinsky, on Flickr I hope you liked this orange buddy as much as I do If someone is interested, I'll try to make a detailed review of technical features (with schematics and colorful pictures, yes ), video and some photos of the "nude" chassis. In conclusion, I want to thank @Shurik for great photos and @Limga for his endless patience and support throughout my entire AFOL path! Thank you all for attention! Update: I found a photo from the competition. One of the participants struggled to help me with a loose climb up the hill Update #2: Just filmed a little adventure in snow https://youtu.be/oVwOIyrj6wQ Update #3: Added a video with summer offroad https://youtu.be/CXFRc0i4dWg Update #4: Fun crawling video https://youtu.be/fusAL80vCZI
  3. Hello everyone. This is my first MOC that I am not ashamed of showing;) Ural 4320 on a shortened 4wheel basis. - 2 XL paired for driving - m motor for steering - m motor for 2step gearbox - m motor for rear differential lock - openable hood and doors - live axles with portal hubs - flexible flat body-chassis - powered by Buwizz 2.0 Total weight is 1800g. Length - 0,52 meters. Width - 0,26 meters. The idea was to make a trial truck in a bigger scale but still capable of handling heavy offroad. The model was inspired by Madoca's Jeep Concept and has the same general idea. Including paired 24x8 low gear and a 16x16 fast gear. Plus the portal hubs. But it is 4 more studs wider and ~10 more studs longer. It has live axles and a flexible body which results in a really stable construction. As of a few hours of heavy outdoor testing it didn't roll over once. As it was the first MOC I focused on the functionality rather than on design. Feel free to give me a punch for scarcity of design;) It looks odd but drives really well on a low gear. On a faster gear the 2 paired XL motors start chewing on the gears while offroading, On the flat surface it's fine though. Originally it just had a straight m motor to the 8x24 gear for steering, but due to heavy tension the gears or the motor were going off its clips. So I decided to make a steering through the small line actuator fixated in every possible way. As a result it was super sturdy and stable. The chassis (looks pretty compact without tractor wheels): Gearbox: Hope you like it Let me know what you think of it!
  4. Presenting another trial truck - 4x4 - PF: XL, Servo, IR, LiPo - Leaf spring front suspension - Double soft shock rear suspension - Panhar rods for both axles - Opening hood - Removable body. Prepared it for the Trial contest in Moscow, but couldn't come there, then participated in the Truck Trial competition in St. Petersburg. You can watch the performance here: Time: 13:41 and 54:33.
  5. Hello. Today I want to introduce my competition truck for this year's Czech LEGO truck trial competition. Original Vehicle: My MOC is based on Ural 4x4 that was raced by a Polish team of Ostaszevski 4x4 Team for a few years. The truck participated regularly in European cross-country rallies and truck trial competitions (according to photos). I did not find any technical data of the vehicle, just photos. But you can see different evolutions of the vehicle: changing frond end from Ural 375 to newer Ural 4320, changing color of a roll cage, changing wheels and, of course, adding scars to the vehicle. An interesting feature is the roll cage, which is attached at the front by a pivot pin. This makes it possible to twist the chassis frame of the vehicle without breaking the roll cage (this can be seen on czech Praga V3S trial specs). Even more interesting is that the racing team moved the front axle ahead in compare with serial Ural truck. This improved the weight balance between front and rear axles and at the same time increased the approach angle. I chose this this vehicle as a base for two reasons: 1) I built Ural 4320 6x6 when I started participating in Czech LEGO truck trial competition four years ago. And this year I wanted to prove myself that I improved my building skill and I wanted to create a nicer model. 2) The Ural Team Ostaszevski is the most interesting competition 4x4 truck I've ever seen. Especially on desert photos it looks like Mad Max kind of truck. MOC: Scale of the model is 1:12.5 (1 stud = 10 cm). Dimensions: width 26 studs, length 57 studs, wheelbase 38 studs. Weight: 1600 g. I think all basic proportions are accurate to one stud (sometimes half). Only the front bumper is wider than it should be (required by our competition technical rules) and wheel rims have a larger diameter. But tire circumference is all right. Even the longitudinal beams of the chassis frame correspond to the original. There are two PF Large motors that drive all four wheels through the 16:16, 20:12, 20:12, 24:8 gearing. There are no differentials in the drivetrain, but the rear axle drive is able to disengage. This is controlled by a pneumatic piston, but due to the wrong design of the disconnection it does not work anymore (actually worked when it was new). The PF Medium motor is used to steer the front axle. Due to steering geometry, Ackermann's steering is achieved (the inner wheel turns more). And steering wheel is connected so it rotates while steering. Other equipment required by competition rules: manual winch, front and rear tow hooks, seat belts and attaching points for number plates. Drive ability: I tried to get the most accurate imitation of the original truck with cost of worse off-roading ability at competitions. For example: approach and departure angle could be better, the cab is heavy and those tires do not have a best offroad thread. But it is better than I expected. The axles are not sprung (the axle does not have any travel), but I use the torsionally soft chassis frame. Just like the mentioned Praga V3S truck. That was probably the most difficult for me. Design two longitudinal beams, just soft in torsion, stiff to bend and not break apart while twisting. This was done and chassis flex is quite nice. Also the wheel travel looks natural (not as a turntable on one of the axles, the rest stays stiff). I also like that the entire drivetrain is hidden in the chassis frame. Only the steering motor protrudes under the bonnet. It is compact and the chassis itself reminds a chassis of real truck. The chassis, the cab and the flat bed are independent modules as in a real truck design. The thing Porsche 42056 was promising, but did not match that. To be honest, it has some technical issues: 1) Gearwheels mounted to L motors (16tooth) wind up long grass in between them. 2) As already mentioned, disconnecting of real axle drive has stopped working. 3) In the last section of the second race, the front axle U-joint has cracked. 4) I do not believe the 24 tooth gearwheels in front wheel hubs. But they have not broken on the Ural yet. Anyway, the biggest weakness during competitions is the driver for sure :D Car control: I believed you noticed there is not a single battery box on the truck. That is correct. In our trial competition rules is drive-by-wire allowed. We know it looks lame, but there are main reasons for that: 1) Weight reduction - Batteries are part of your controller and car doesn’t have to carry them. 2) Control precision - LEGO offers only IR remote control (so far) and that is useless outside on direct sunlight. 3rd party receivers were forbidden until last season (100% pure LEGO), but sBrick is allowed since this year. Still, no one use it because it not as precise as old 9V BBox and because of weight. 3) Pneumatic control - we can use pneumatic hoses for diff locking, gear shifting or suspension adjusting. You can do that remotely as well, but it will cost you lost of additional weight and no one would do that anymore. And don’t think we tow out cars by cable. That is forbidden, of course and our official is strict about that. --- For more photos look here: https://www.zonerama.com/Link/Album/4391387 To see where it got that dirty, look at video of 2nd race: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9Gnw0XoFHU --- I use Zonerama instead of Flickr and I am not able to insert pictures.

  7. Conclusion A quiet day ended with the demise of Tony (jluck). The jurors seemed to be like lambs to the slaughter, falling silently into line behind Gary Johnson (Kintober). "Mama mia! You can't do this me-!" Night fell, and a dark shadow snuck out to do its dastardly business. "I was wondering when you were going to show up." With that bold statement, Gary lunged at the shadow, knocking the gun from its hand! "Now let's find out who you really are, Ballagio scum!" It was none other than Tina Hooper (Umbra-Manis)! "Tina! I trusted you! I protected you!" Tina snarled back "That was your mistake!" Gary steadied the gun and levied it at Tina's head. "I'm going to finish this once and for all." "GARY! Put the gun down!" boomed the judge, emerging from the emergency elevator access hatch. "She's too dangerous to be left alive! I have to finish this!" "Gary... if you do you're no better than them. Give me the gun." Gary sighed and passed the gun to Judge Justuss. "Thank you Gary. You're making the right choice..." **bang** "...just not for you." "Nice work Tina. That's all of them. I'm afraid we don't have enough jurors for a trial anymore, but we can still get Sleaze out. I don't care either way, as long as I get my money. Our driver is bringing the car around, you go retrieve the boss. He's in block A113 on the ground floor." "And what are you going to do?" inquired Tina. "I've got a... surprise for our friend Anthony." There was just one small problem... Chief McCain had other plans. Dawn broke over a police barricade. "Come out with your hands up! We will shoot!" The judge emerged, a gun and detonator in his hands. "Evening gentlemen... let's not make this harder than it needs to be. I'm holding here a deadman's trigger. You kill me and you, me, my colleagues, your colleagues, what's rest of the jury, and this whole city block goes up in one big fireball." The Chief let loose an exasperated sigh and turned to his officers. "Guns down men. Let them go. I want a bomb squad and SWAT team sweeping the building ASAP." Anthony Dodson (Actor Builder) was one such hostage. As a matter of fact, he was the only hostage. "Last time I was chained up to a box of explosives, it was by a group of scantily-clad Caribbean women on the island of Guetamala... I think I preferred that to a crusty old judge, but hey, I'll take what I can get." Back down at street-level, the Ballagio's driver arrived - Jared Hartman (Kwatchi)! "Get in losers, we're running from the law!" "Right on time Jared. Thank you for indulging my sense of humor, Chief. I'm sure we'll meet again." "This isn't over!" yelled the Chief through gritted teeth. "Well of course not. We're only just beginning!" Congratulations to the winners, the Ballagio Crime Family, consisting of Umbra-Manis and Kwatchi! Huge thanks to everyone for playing, I had a blast hosting. Full roles, actions, thoughts, and player analysis to follow.

    Tatra 813 Trial Truck

    This is my biggest technic creation (so far). It's trying to be a Tatra 813 8x8 truck, with a shorter cab. 2 XL motors provide traction for all wheels and an M motor steers the 2 front axles. For now it will remain like this, as it will enter the Rolug Winter Trial Truck contest and needs to be as light as possible, but after the contest I'd like to continue working on it. I think it would be a good off-road tow truck/mobile crane or a drill rig carrier 20180123_190938 by tamas lapsanszki, on Flickr 20180103_090528 by tamas lapsanszki, on Flickr 20180101_003044 by tamas lapsanszki, on Flickr 20180101_002001 by tamas lapsanszki, on Flickr

  10. DAY 6 The jury deliberated long and hard, finally deciding it was time for Stephanie Diaz (Lady K) to face the music. The police led her away in chains. "Good riddance" muttered Tony (jluck). Night time fell, and the citizens went about their normal routines... Anthony Dodson (Actor Builder) chased down the bus after leaving his pants there for the third time this week... ...while Gary Johnson (Kintober) went pickaxe shopping. "Welp, I guess this pickaxe is as good as the next..." Finally, the sun rose on the bedraggled jurors occupying the courthouse. "Just five of y'all left... Stephanie Diaz (Lady K) was another member of the Town. I think we're at a tipping point, and there's still a chance, however slim, to stop Sleaze from throwing this trial.

  11. DAY 5 The jury was in, and Amanda Callahan (Khscarymovie4) was out. Chief McCain briskly took her away for questioning. Night found Brock Martin (Tariq j) sitting quietly on a bench, wondering who to interview for the next segment on his show. "You can interview me!" said a dark figure, appearing suddenly to Brock's side. "Really?" "No, you can't! I hate paparazzi!" With that, a muffled gunshot silenced the legendary voice of radio forever. Downtown, Clifford Schauer (LegoMonorailFan) was making his last delivery of the day, and of his life, though he didn't know it yet. "Damn! This box is heavy!" He rapped loudly on the door to rouse whatever sleeping soul lay within. Instead of a kindly old lady or disgruntled deliveryman, Clifford got a shotgun in the face. "This will teach you for not keeping your nose out of other people's business!" Clifford's body tumbled over the railings, and the sand around him slowly turned red as a grim reminder not to cross the crime families of Brickton, Brickslyvania. The sun rose, and Judge Justuss addressed the six remaining members of the jury. "Morning fellas. I have some good news and some bad news. The good news first: there's few enough of you left that we can move from the sidewalk to the conference room. That's neat, and should stop my arthritis from flaring up. Oh, and Brock was another member of the Moletti Crime Family. Unfortunately, Amanda and Clifford were both Innocent Townsfolk. I can't help but notice we still haven't caught any of Sleaze's crew - the Ballagios. Please do better today, I fear we may be fast running out of time."

Hamilton, it's time for our next scheme. Send the letter to The Peregrine (@Kwatchi) as we discussed. Very good sir. A short time after the results of the MCRA... Sinbad? Who's asking? The nation of Eslandola wishes to inform Bastion that we have detained the Sea Rat vessels which sailed into the port of Fuerte Unido. I was told you were the best person to inform seeing as the Sea Rats have no formal government. And why would you do that? Please sir! I'm just the messenger! The message gives you all the facts! Very well, be gone. Hamilton, it appears our scheme is working. Sea Rat ships fired on ESL vessels shortly before sailing into an ESL harbor. Eslandola is demanding an explanation. Shall we prepare our legal case? Way ahead of you sir. Let's go win another court battle.

  14. DAY 3 Dusk fell as Alan Andrews (KotZ) returned from a long day of deliberation in the courthouse. "I hope this trial gets over soon so I can get back to my trees... I love trees. They're really the only ones that understand me." He was approached by a dark figure. "What can I do for you, stranger?" The shadow replied only with a blast from his shotgun. The shadow smiled grimly as Alan slumped forward. "Sorry Alan, but it looks like you've chopped your last tree." Elsewhere, Harry Oldman (fhomess) looked for somewhere to refill his dwindling supply of booze. "Dez said his shop should be somewhere around here..." A dark figure emerged from an alleyway, and Harry turned to face him. "You know where I can find Mr. Hunter's legitimate storefront enterprise? I've been looking every-" He was interrupted with a shotgun shell that narrowly missed him, shattering his bottle instead. "Hey-!" The second shot found its mark, bringing the story of the grizzled vet to a grizzly end as his blood mixed with shards of broken glass on the cold sidewalk. Morning came and the judge addressed the remaining jurors. "Gentlemen and women of the jury, I have some terrible news. Two of our own, Mr. Oldman and Mr. Andrews, were found dead last night. The police are investigating their deaths as homicides, and urge anyone with information to come forward. A thorough examination of their bodies has lent us some important information, however - Mr. Oldman was a loyal member of the Town. Even more troubling is our results on Mr. Andrews. He was affiliated with neither the town nor Sleaze's crew, but rather their rival the Moletti Crime Family. Make of that what you will, but it may have serious repercussions for the rest of our trial. Please, bring the chief and I whatever monster is responsible for the deaths of these men. You are dismissed."

  15. DAY 2 A dark figure crept silently over the rooftops, as if up to some nefarious deed... But it was just Amanda Callahan (Khscarymovie4) practicing her new cheer routine. "OH EMMM GEEEEE absolutely cannot wait to put this on my Instasnapfacegramchaterbook! The girls are gonna LOVE IT!" Elsewhere, Tony (jluck) ran across an abandoned hotdog cart on his evening stroll. "Well, can't let this go to waste!" *munch* Morning dawned on... eleven jurors. "Hey, where's Cathy?" asked Jared Hartman (Kwatchi). "Who am I going to play BotBS with now...?" Judge Justuss spoke up. "Unfortunately, Cathy fell ill yesterday and has requested to be dismissed from the jury. Jimmy Hessler (Steamdemon), the construction worker, will be taking her place. So make him feel welcome. Or don't. He'll probably get killed off soon anyways. Other than that, not much to report. Quiet night. So, do your thing, maybe turn someone over to the Chief and I to question today. I've been itching to do some... uh... interrogating. Let's call it that."

  16. DAY 1 In the dusty city of Brickton, Bricksylvania, a nervous crowd had gathered outside the town hall. They yelled annoying things, like "When are you going to let us in!" and "Let's get this trial over with!" Finally, the majestic judge Neil Justuss stepped out of the building. "Gentlemen and women of the jury. I have some bad news. I believe our trial has been... compromised, and even now members of the Ballagio crime family walk among you." *collective gasp* "I know, I know, it's terrible. The obvious course of action would be to simply dismiss all of you and select a new jury, but Chief McCain here has a better idea. He suggested to me we let you vote off one person each day, and the Chief and I will haul them away to jail for questionably legal interrogation in order to root out the members of the mafia and preserve the integrity of this court. We know they are among us, and we can't let this chance to crack down on organized crime slip away. Good luck."

  17. BREAKING NEWS: Notorious crime boss Sleaze Ballagio has been arrested for money laundering. The trial is fast approaching, but Judge Neil Justuss is justifiably worried that the jury selection process has been rigged! Members of the Bellagio crime family have infiltrated the jury, and are working even now to throw the trial in their favor. Will the townsfolk be able to identify the biased jury members among them before Sleaze walks free? Welcome back to Eurobricks mafia! It's been too long. To sign up, please answer the following questions: 1) Have you played Mafia on Eurobricks before more than once? 2) Will you be active and available (ie don't sign up if you're planning a three-week hike in the Swiss Alps with no internet access!) for the next 4-6 weeks? 3) On a scale on 1 to 12, how mad will you be if the game makes no attempt to follow "proper" courtroom procedure? Signups will run for a little bit after we get 12 players. If more than 12 sign up (which would be great, means more people are interested in more games) players with at least one game under their belt will be prioritized over brand-new players, since this isn't a School. Any issues after that will be decided by lottery. So... signup! Tell your friends! Tell your enemies! Tell your second cousins, Eurobricks Mafia is back on the menu! I promise you it will be at least moderately interesting.

  21. Good day. This is a trial truck using 1 XL motor for drive, 1 M motor for steering and powered by BuWizz. The drive is powered through a worm gear to 8t gear, creating a powerful 1:8 reduction. It uses model team wheels , they don't have the best perfomance, but it is good enough. For the bodywork I was inspired by ГАЗ-66 (gaz-66), although it isn't an exact copy. Both doors can be opened, the seats and steering wheel are adjustable LDD model available here: download

  24. Hi everyone! I am glad to present my new trial truck based on @Lucio Switch and @efferman ideas. All photos are clickable, you can see full Flickr gallery Main goals were: Enormous size of the model Durability High speed (relative to most lego trial trucks) Double wheels on rear axles Features: 8x8 drive (no differentials) with 4 buggy-motors (12 wheels total) 2 servos for steering 2 L-motors for winch 2 SBricks 2 LiPo's In-wheel planetary reductors (4:1 gearing) Anti-roll bars Durable 3-stud thick chassis Total 22:1 gearing with fast buggy-motor output Weight: 3,5 kg And here are some WIP photos: Axles with 13:1 gearing Rear chassis part with motors installed Chassis assembled Almost completed truck, with bottom view First steps Video from Moscow 2016 TT meeting As a final note, I can summarize that such heavy and hulking truck looks good only as a show-stopper, but there is nothing to do with it on trial competitions Thank you for attention, hope you liked this little fellow
  25. My previous crawler (Rock Beetle) won second place in LTR Truck Trial Competition in Trial category, and then I started to build new one for next competition. This time I decided to participate in the other category. First, I started with the chassis: Two L-motors for propulsion, M-motor for steering. The next step was the body, and the design of this MOC was inspired by Bowler EXR-S. I tried to copy this SUV, but in the end I stoped trying. So it is not the most accurate copy of this vehicle, just inspired. It has a lot of details that the original don't have, like the air intake on the hood, the spoiler and two chrome pipes. The last competition was exciting and I can't wait for the next one in April. I hope you like it! More photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/139343351@N04/albums/72157679544070205 Video:
