  1. TECHNIC WACKY WHEELS CONTEST After a fierce battle bots competition it's time for a less serious competition. How about a Virtual Race through LEGO City using Wacky Wheels?! DESCRIPTION The Wacky Wheels competition is loosely based on the 1994 Arcade game by Apogee, which strongly puts the emphasis on fun instead of realism, both in looks and gameplay. Each contestant needs to have a wacky vehicle to participate in the most ludicrous race of the year. And you will be designing and building that vehicle! The first requirement for the vehicle is that it needs to have wheels or treads, since it is a road race! Your vehicle can be anything you want (also a boat, plane, etc), but it needs to have wheels, since it's a driving contest. The second requirement is that it needs to have at least one wacky function besides driving and steering. This function can be anything to gain an advantage in the race. Of course it can also be function to hinder your opponent. Anything goes! Thanks to Erik Leppen for pitching this idea DEADLINE Deadline date is Monday 16th of October, 2017. Contest will be closed on Tuesday 17th of October, OR LATER. Disclaimer: I will close the contest when I see fit and when I have the time to process the results. This can be later than the deadline date. Please don't complain about this not being fair and all. RULES AND REGULATIONS The following section describes the contest specific and general rules and regulations. But before that, please take notice of a simple motto regarding the Eurobricks Contests: CONTESTS ARE FOR FUN!

CONTEST SPECIFIC RULES AND REGULATIONS Each vehicle needs to have a WACKY NAME (no name, no entry). Each vehicle needs to have at least a WACKY FUNCTION (besides steering and driving).

  4. I know I'm late to the party, but I had this idea for a few weeks already and did some tests, and yesterday I had time to start building on the real version. I think it's wacky enough to partipicate, although the "wacky function" is not the most original, I admit. There's no drive, just rolling, and there's no suspension. It's fully manual. It can roll (no drive, no fake engine whatsoever); and it can steer all eight bogies simultaniously. This means the vehicle doesn't "turn", the body keeps always facing the same way, but the wheels turn so it can drive anywhere it wants. There's also no "steering radius" - it can turn on the spot, which of course is an advantage in the race. Obviously, the top part (where the driver sits) turns the same way as the wheels. The "wacky function", as you may have guessed from the springs you see behind the seat, is an ejector seat. Launching the driver forward gives a tiny advantage for the last few meters before the finish (assuming the winner is the driver who crosses the line first). And of course, it's a nice way to leave the vehicle quick and clean (how to enter the vehicle, I don't know). I don't want to make this thing much more complicated, so I will be adding a nice cabin, and I will decide on a color scheme (I have some ideas already), make it a bit more sturdy and add a few details here and there, and that's pretty much it. It sounds doable to finish this before the deadline.
  5. Hi, I present to you: The Dragomoto The functions are: - driving (XL motor) - steering (M motor) - functions of the dragon (M motor) which is: - flapping main wings. - lifting tail up and down. - flapping tail fins All functions are powered via RC. This model is relatively small and compact and contains only 764 pieces. I will send more pictures and updates later. Hope you enjoy it!

  7. BEWARE OR BE-WARE At the last day, but I've finished my entry for the Wacky Racers Contest. I'd like to present you - KitchenWarerior. Race car vechicle full made of different kitchenware or another stuff (stuff made of lego of course) It has an "iron" cockpit, lawn mower for driving, smth like shopping cart wheels to steer. Ceiling fan-lamp and infrared lamps as thrusters, soffits for headlights. There is even an Xbox One on the top of construction for ... I am not sure for what certainly. May be as CPU. Wacky functions are: -Mixer/blender on the right side to Blend the track -Knives block on the left side to cut the finish line! -And surprise for othe racers Tiny Toy Truck with dynamite which can be easily left on the road. Video is Here
  8. Started some days ago, as I have vacations. I was strugling with my Isetta project. Don't have inspiration. But it is as inspiration for my TC12 wacky car. This will be something like Isetta with big rear wheels ans smaller 4 front steered wheels First back part concept First front part concept Then second Then together Need to build some cabin with forn door and think about some third functions (i have some Lego hedgehogs, if we are talkinf about wacky wheels game inspiration ...)
