A brand new type of video from RacingBrick – stop motion brickfilm! 🙂 It’s a short teaser for my BuWizz powered Lego Technic RC speed record breaker. Join my little helpers to see the final tests for this beast and see the wheels spinning over 3000 RPM!
Since I received many requests again to provide instructions for the wheeled speed recorder Lego Technic 42069 Extreme Adventure RC mod, I try to help you and took a series of pictures while disassembling the model.
Please note that this video is far from being a complete guide – it shows how to build the 2 axles with the 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.
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:
- 42033 Record Breaker – http://ebay.to/2xkA3DO — http://amzn.to/2zmrWo
- 42034 Quad bike – http://ebay.to/2fiyVqo — http://amzn.to/2zki9Qh
- 42035 Mining Truck – http://ebay.to/2xxHpo7 — http://amzn.to/2yb01Hv
- PF L motor (drive) – http://ebay.to/2wF3Kgc — http://amzn.to/2zlJtxD
- PF Servo motor (steering) – http://ebay.to/2x89pP0 — http://amzn.to/2ApqzGf
- PF Lights – http://ebay.to/2x8jueR — http://amzn.to/2zmfHZK
There are multiple options for the remote control:
- PF Rechargeable Battery box (8878) – http://ebay.to/2xkDw53 — http://amzn.to/2zBunqJ
or AAA Battery box (88000) – http://ebay.to/2xjTbBV — http://amzn.to/2zmZAuS
- PF IR reciever (8884) – http://ebay.to/2y5KkRV — http://amzn.to/2y7WDgd
or Sbrick – http://ebay.to/2eDtXUu — http://amzn.to/2AnwHyN
- Buwizz – http://buwizz.com
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!

Here are some images of the 42037 mod to show the inner changes:
Lego Technic 42037 Formula Off-Roader upgraded for full remote control. Engine swapped, it has a V8 now. Driven by two buggy motors, powered by 2 BuWizz units. Steering with Power Functions Servo motor. Engine powered independently with a Power Functions M motor. Installed Power Functions Lights as well.

After my first RC mod of the 42069 set I wanted to build something faster 🙂 The plan was fairly simple – remove every non-vital part (including the fake V8, sorry), streamline the body as well, finally add 4 buggy motors and 2 BuWizz units. The result is pretty fast considering the size and the tracked wheels, check out the video:
As I don’t have the resources at the moment to create building instructions for this set and the changes are not that difficult, I think it is enough to share some detailed photos of the set without the body. I also took some photos of the two sets side-by-side to make the differences visible.
And finally, here is the second part of the 42050 Drag Racer video where you can see if the upgraded version can do real wheelies by itself (hint – it can 😉 )
The body panels and the stickers of the upgraded version are mostly coming from the 42041/8041 Race Truck, I think they fit perfectly.
