LEGO Powered Up – interview with the product owner
In the past 2 years I followed the development of the Powered Up system very closely, and I published a lot of content about it. There were many questions raised about the system itself, why it is developed this way, and what will be the development path in the future.

LEGO Technic 42110 Land Rover Defender ultimate repair guide
I tested the drive train again after keeping the set built for a long time, and also tried if the new improved gears could help getting rid of the cracking:
Unfortunately the new gears did not solve the situation either, so I have to say that despite the most careful assembly, the set will start to show the cracking behavior sooner or later.
I shared many videos with you about the LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender already, you saw my detailed building review, the details of the drive train and the one about the cracking noise and the possible fixes. I received hundreds of comments from you and many-many requests for help, hopefully in most of the cases I was able to assist to find the proper solution.
I decided to create a summary and a video about all the potential issues I found during the building process. I’ll also go through the drive train from the wheels to the engine, how to verify your build, and what are the problems that are not really problems. Each section is linked to the proper part of the video, use the summery below to find the section you are looking for:Continue reading
RacingBrick’s coloring and activity book
Free coloring and activity book in pdf format with images of my remote controlled LEGO vehicles and some fun little LEGO-related games
This Easter is very different from the previous ones, we are advised to stay home, can’t visit our friends and family, so you’ll probably do what I do – spend these days indoors. I wanted to create something that makes this isolation a bit easier, but I did not create building instructions this time since getting LEGO parts might be challenging nowadays.
So this is it, my coloring and activity book! Most of my remote control modifications are waiting there to be colored, and there are a few little games that you can enjoy. The book is not only for kids, I hope everyone will enjoy spending some time with it!
