Lego Technic Baja 1000 – mini version of agrof’s class 1 unlimited buggy

The 50th Score Baja 1000 off-road race starts today, the best way to pay a Lego tribute to this event is to take an RC Technic car outside and see how it performs 🙂

Last week I showed you the BuWizz & buggy motor equipped version of agrof’s Class 1 unlimited buggy. Although the performance was impressive compared to the original with Power Functions, the car was a bit too big and heavy for my taste. I decided to shrink it down proportionally, and this mini version was born. It has smaller wheels, the body is 2 studs narrower, and the overall length is proportionally shorter as well.

The track width did not change as I did not have the proper replacement parts for the steering, I’ll work on this later. The car feels quicker, although due to the smaller wheels some obstacles can be problematic. The color scheme is not the final one, I had to use what I found in my boxes 🙂 I’ll work more on this car later as I really like the sturdiness and the performance. And now, pictures!

agrof’s class 1 unlimited buggy on steroids – Lego Baja 1000 race car with BuWizz & Buggy motors

The 50th Baja 1000 off-road race will take place next week so I wanted to create a Lego tribute video to this fantastic event. The best vehicle to choose was agrof’s class 1 unlimited buggy which is a great build, highly recommended to everyone! As usual I made some modifications, the car is upgraded with 2 buggy motors and 2 BuWizz units. It also has 2 SBricks added so I can swap the BuWizz units with Lego battery boxes. My version lacks the fine details of the original vehicle as I was afraid to loose parts at high speed 🙂

Many thanks to agrof for the opportunity to see his car and for his help making this video.

You can find the original build here with instructions:

You can find below some images of the car and the description of the changes I made.

Obviously the biggest change was to swap the 2 L motors with buggy motors. To integrate the buggy motors I had to rework the rear suspension as well. The IR receivers were replaced with SBricks.

Lego Technic 41999 4×4 Crawler Zombie Hunter mod

This car was created for my Halloween stop motion animation. I had a 41999 black and white replica built from a 9398 set with the big power puller wheels. I also happened to have a big box of Bionicle parts that were ideal to turn the car into a proper zombie hunter. I did not want to modify the original chassis if possible, rather adding some extra functions. I added a spinning blade to the front, alternating side blades powered by an M motor, and a rear spinning swatter / mallet combination powered by another M motor. Here are some additional pictures of the vehicle:

Lego Zombie Hunters – halloween brickfilm

A spooky Lego animation with zombies, vampires, mummies and a heavily armed & customized Lego Technic 41999 4X4 Crawler.

The idea was to use my custom-built Lego Technic 41999 4×4 Crawler and a huge box of Lego Bionicle parts and have some Halloween fun 🙂 There are 3 custom motorized functions on the crawler, the spinning front blades, the alternating side blades and the rear spinning swatter / mallet combination. There are 2 manual spring activated blades in the front as well.

Obviously no Lego zombies were harmed in the making of this video 🙂

Building instructions for the BuWizz powered speed record breaker

I received many questions and requests to provide details about this car, so I created this step-by-step assembly video and uploaded the part list to rebrickable.

Let me know if you build the car or something based on this version, I’m really curious how fast can you go with it 🙂

Lego RC speed record breaker – stop motion brickfilm short

Fastest Lego Technic 42069 RC mod with wheels & 4 buggy motors

This is my third and last Lego 42069 Extreme Adventure remote control mod. After the Superleggera mod I did not plan to create another one but I was convinced by some comments on my YouTube channel (thanks for the tip!). Although I really liked 42069 on tracks, I realized that the top speed was limited by the construction so the 4 buggy motors could not show their full potential. I removed the tracks and added the wheels from the 9398 Crawler set.
The pickup-style body was kept from the previous mod to ensure the car is as light as possible. The axles were rebuilt completely to fit the buggy motors and the wheels.

Lego Technic 42033 + 42034 + 42035 3-in-1 RC mod

I’d like to share a small but agile creation – the remote control mod of the 42033 + 42034 Extreme Off-Roader combined set. Additional parts (mostly for steering) were used only from the set 42035 Mining truck.

The sets and Power Functions components are:

There are multiple options for the remote control:

For the video I used the 8878+SBrick combination as the control was easier with an USB gamepad through the SBrickcontroller app. It turned out to be a very fun little car, pretty quick considering the size. Enjoy the video!

Disclaimer – if you make a purchase of the parts/sets listed above on Ebay or Amazon then you’ll also contribute to my future Lego projects.
