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.

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.

The body panels and the stickers of the upgraded version are mostly coming from the 42041/8041 Race Truck, I think they fit perfectly.
