Since we still don’t have any official updates about the anticipated 2022 LEGO Technic 1:8 supercar, I decided to use the following 5 cars to take a look at the official LEGO sets released so far in this scale, the available MOCs and also what alternative brick manufacturers can offer:
I had a chance to test this fantastic little buggy, agrof was kind enough to give me the opportunity to drive and film his latest creation. The buggy has 4 wheel drive, it is equipped with 2 L motors and a Servo motor. It has an AAA battery box and an IR receiver by default but for this occasion I swapped them with a BuWizz unit and also replaced the wheels. The location is the beautiful hill of Hegyesd (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hegyesd), hope you’ll enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed shooting it 😉
If you remember my Darth’s Angels photo it had 3 custom motorcycles, all of them was a combination of 42036 and 1-2 other Technic sets. As I promised I was preparing the building instructions slowly but surely (bad weather definitely helps), so here is the first one for Darth Vader’s bike:
The inventory can be found on the rebrickable page:
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!
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 has organized recently another Rebrick contest with the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team – the goal was to create the F1 car of the future. I wanted to create a car that looks somehow futuristic but looks like an evolution of the current cars, and represents the color scheme and the logos of the team. As I do not have too many non-Technic bricks I decided to create a digital entry. I started to build with LDCad, that’s the application I’m more or less familiar with. I started to sketch some ideas but the summer holidays came so I forgot about it. I only realized the deadline 3-4 days before it arrived, so I had to act quickly 🙂 I finished the build in LDCad, but as it does not offer any rendering abilities I had to look quickly for a solution. The Ldraw-Povray connnection was not that easy to figure out in such a short time frame, so I had to look for something else. I considered rebuilding my car in Lego Digital Designer as there are multiple good rendering options for the official app, but unfortunately I used some pieces that are not available in LDD.
