The finished MOC of my simple / fast NXT based sports car.
About this creation
My NXT Sports Car is now finished. The changes I mentioned here have been completed (sorting out the gearing for the steering) as well as re-doing part of the rear gearing to stop the gears popping / clicking under high torque.
Trunk and hood open - using simple linear actuator Bionicle parts to act as stays and keep them open.
Front view, hood open - suspension layout, reduction gearing for the steering rack.
Rear view, trunk open - Lego trip computer.
Roof open - access to NXT brick etc. Note steering now driven by gearing only, universal joints to sloppy.
Underside detail - the two NXT servos that drive the back wheels have separate gearing into the first stage of the gearing to the wheels. With the two servos on the same shaft, and even with a beam on either side of the shafts, the gears were still clicking under full torque from a standstill. Now, no clicking, no matter what you do.
Awesome! I loved the model, It's so "thin" for a car with the NXT brick, I really like it. 5/5. Well, why don't you check my new model, the "Ferrari Le Mans 1970"? Well, a lot of people that seen it liked it, so I think that you'll like too xD
