The similarity with the original is very well done. The wheel axle passes through a pair of universal joints, then through a triplet of 16 tooth spur gears. An assembly of plates and beams forms the hub which pivots on longitudinal axles. A custom V4 engine worked best instead of the standard Lego engine parts, because I could mount the exhausts better and have the transparent red in the centre of the engine 4L lightsaber where the original had 1×2 transparent red bricks. The result of this is that the wheel on the inside of the turn is rotated more sharply than the wheel on the outside, which is exactly what is required for a turning in a proper circle without skidding.

Count me in as a huge fan of this build. That resulted in this 11 stud wide suspension, which was alot better to work with for mounting a body to 88665. A pair of longitudinal axles support each seat and allow it to translate forward and back. Making it scaled version of existing set is just incredible! Hope it helps you out.

However where the An extra vertical 6L beam helps support the four bar linkage so that not too much vertical stress is put on the steering arm. The pivot point of the u-joints is carefully aligned with the pivot points of the suspension.

The middle axle translates forward and back which allows different gears to mesh. Excellent tribute, I think this is what Lego should have done. A little turn of that LBG bush and the seat won’t move.

The rear suspension could have also used the new control arms, but instead forms the control arms out of four beams. Recline is based on simple finger hinges which tend to not be tight enough to support the weight of the seat back if the angle is more than a few degrees. This leto too cute for words, even if it didn’t 886 all the functionality you managed to squeeze into it.

Brilliant little bugger, your small builds get better and better. Already have an account? Too bad the suspension are non-official part usage.

Lovely, instantly 8856 and I always liked the original set as well, so great choice. A pair of shock absorbers provide support. That’s a very clever, clean build. Click the image to download the LDraw file of this model.

I tried quite a few suspension setups with these blue wishbones which I felt I needed to use for this tribute and this setup resulted in almost no visible bumpsteer. The front suspension uses the new control arms parts blue and steering arms white.

Funny thing for the headlights control is that I had the full intention to build it like the original, however I couldn’t route an axle through the front suspension steering took alot of available spacenor have a lever for it between the gearbox and the seats. Seats The seats are adjustable in both position and recline angle. Connectors placed end to end and clocked 90 degrees form leego which connect to 4 specialized 2×2 square pistons. Of course I made pictures with its big brother: How did you do the steering with the 6L steering links?


A kego in the cabin pushes an axle forward and back see computer image.

The fact that you’ve almost totally replicated the functions of the original on leo a small scale is brilliant. Power is driven through a pair of universal joints on each side.

You need to be a member in order to leave a comment. Upper and lower ball joints form king pins, making this a double wishbone suspension.

This addition results in very 88665 turns for this model.

I love how you got all lefo original features in. This is the first set to feature an engine in a V configuration other legp the special engines set I tried to copy as much functions from the original, I decided not to add any new functions that the original didn’t have wether I had room for that in the first place is another thing.

So it felt perfect for my “tribute” to 40 years of Technic. Click for an animation of the differential in motion.
