Already have an account? I have the original big brother. There are no rear seats. The “cylinders” are actually square.

I think I will have a go building one like yours as well. I tried to copy as many details of the engine as possible.
How did you do the steering with the 6L steering links? Headlights This is not only the first auto chassis with a body, but the front end features retractable headlights.
Folding headlight, simple but effective. The engine is 1 stud too high in scale, but this I could not combine lower oego the suspension. Click for an animation of the engine in motion.
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.
The version on the right is in neutral. This is too cute for words, even if it didn’t have all the functionality you managed to squeeze into it. Steering The front wheels can be steered using a new wheel at the driver’s position. Also, when the headlights are up 886 bush in that position makes it harder to steer.

Hope it helps you out. A pinion gear attached to the seat can be turned via a crank, legp the seat forward see computer image and animation. If you wonder why I didn’t use the part of pinhoel with 2 axle ends on the driveshaft towards the gearbox. A lever in the cabin pushes an axle forward and back see oego image. Upper and lower ball joints form king pins, making this a double wishbone suspension.

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. Register a new account. A pair of shock absorbers provide support.
While I managed a rear suspension in 10 studs, it looked very flimsy So I decided to slightly scale up my model with the use of these 37mm tires.
Very nice little tribute. I have only a question, how shock absorbing work with the real drivertrain? Click for an animation of the steering in motion. Of course I made pictures with its big brother: To compensate for this I decided to make the suspension smaller in width, so that the total width with tires included would be in scale edit: Lovely, instantly recognizable and I always liked the original set as well, so great choice.
The fact that you’ve almost totally replicated the functions of the original on such a small scale is brilliant.
I used a 3L blue liftarm as gearstick because his big brother has it too, same goes for the antenna being red for the headlights. Brilliant little bugger, your small builds get better and better. Because he only has 1 CV joint on each rear wheel normally there would be 2 for double wishbone suspension and one to connect the rear wheels to the gearbox. lwgo

Each pair of opposing cylinders shares a common crank pin. Click for an animation of the seats in motion. 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. 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. But I understand there are very little options there.
You can see in the images that the tie rod attachments are not directly behind the kingpins, but are inboard. The end result was a scale of 1: I was just wondering if you used any of those notorious black pins The rack uses the new ball joints at each end to attach to new tie rods. Creating a small moc of this size and number of functions is a challenge already. Otherwise why would there be a lengthwise CV-joint running to the ‘diff’ which is of course not a diff?
