Hi guys, this is my first Lego Technic MOC so far. It's a truggy inspired by a real RC model, HPI Trophy Truggy Flux. I wanted to create a model that resembled as much as possibile a real RC truggy. The model is 100% Lego and it's 39 cm long and 25.5 cm wide. Its weight is 1.230 kg. It's powered by 2 RC Motors and a RC Unit, and it also features 4 independent suspended axles. The chassis is flat and the arms are parallel to the ground. The front steered axle comes with several mods from Sariel's great Trophy Truck. Unlike Sariel's model, however, the real axle insn't dragged but the arms are fully independent. The rear towers that support shock absorbers are wider than the front ones. Note that rear shock absorbers are mounted differently than the front ones because of the different design of the axles (the front ones have limitations due to the use of the part #15459 - Light Bluish Gray Technic, Steering Arm 5 x 1 with Towball Socket Rounded, Chamfered) I choosed to use the outer output of the RC motors, that in theory should give less speed but more torque on offroad tracks. The hubs mount 56mm D. x 34mm 3 pin holes wheels, so both 94.8 x 44 R Balloon Crawler's and 94.3 x 38 R Unimog's tyres fit the model perfectly. The chassis is completed by two oversized bumpers and a sturdy deck wing. As in a real RC model, the bodyshell can be completely removed from the chassis (in a Lego RC truggy this feature has no real meaning, because there are no electronics to have access to, but I always found this feature cool, so I kept it! ) For the bodysheel I took my inspiration from the new 42065 Tracked Racer. The white-and-red colors scheme is anyway the same of the HPI Trophy Truggy Flux. I choosed to leave the bodyshell rather crude, without adding many details, to make it light and simple as real RC models. This is also useful when driving outside, because it minimizes the risk of losing parts. I tested the truggy in my aparment and then outside on asphalt, cobblestone, dirt and low grass, and it performed not bad... for being a Lego model, I mean The best performance was on harder terrains, like asphalt or cobblestone. On the dirt the motors started to suffer due the lack of torque. The poorest run was on the grass, even if it was dry because of the winter cold. The lack of torque was particularly evident climbing little hills... the motors often stalled. On the straight, the peak speed was decent even if not amazing. ...Maybe in a couple of weeks I'll shoot a video of the truggy to show you its performances!
Hello, I am trying to reverse-engineer a MOC by RM8. I am having trouble making the front suspension and steering sturdy. Does anyone have ay ideas of how to make it more stable? Here is what I have so far: Any advice is appriciated. Thanks in advance. Here is the video the truck is in.
Hello everyone! I want to show you my MOCs. My first successful project is a Rallycross car. Rear-wheel drive by two L-motors, opening doors and hood , and a detailed cockpit . The model has already dismantled , there are only pictures. https://pp.vk.me/c62...ihPWp7O4agM.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62..._rec4h9q5wU.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...OoJ932OSU_8.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...86qu_VzpQNk.jpg And my last project is somewhere between Class 1 unlimited buggy from Grof Peter (front suspension and general form) and Baja Trophy truck from Madoca. That's why I named my model "truggy" (truggy is a portmanteau of the words truck and buggy). These two models have inspired me. https://pp.vk.me/c62...j6iB9_qFSAA.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...RXOzREj-ysc.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...5GVmMvlGmfE.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...vXKh5iihnog.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...vTEImVfbxmM.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...H6o537Qw5tI.jpg https://pp.vk.me/c62...-J0gjUVRX3E.jpg Creating a movie is in full swing, and more pictures are coming soon!
