all great tricks and combos, I have a few wheels combos of my own found recently, maybe I should notify it when I post, I d love to be able to steer though, sadddly I don t have the tan parts, it seems a robot part, is it? the red suspension part, I m lucky enough to have, it s on the 'zombie town' fire pick up, I only experimented with light cars, trucks, not as heavy as yours, I was affraid of breaking it, but, it s actually pretty strong. great work marcus!
@Marcel, Nils, Nick, Aaden: Thanks a lot buddies! @Joonmin: Nils is right, Sven Jagdmann introduced them to me, they seem to be widely unknown. If you hide them a bit, you can't even see they're red. @Dean: Thanks! Tire: These are two tires, one pulled over the other (you can see them on the photo). It's quite difficult to do that, I must admit ... @Luke: Thanks a lot mate, looking forward to your 7-wide! Mocathalon: You know I highly appreciate your work and I'd be glad to be a teammate of yours. But I think I won't participate, I'm sorry. It seems I am not the contest guy, didn't even finish my entry for the CS contest (not that I didn't try). There are several reasons for that, one being the fact that I am not a very versatile and not a very quick builder, another one that I am trying to avoid anything that distracts me from building the things I want to build - and there are a lot of them. Perhaps my dark ages lasted too long ... ;-) Sorry again, I feel honored that you asked. @Starscream, TLNA, Gabor, Steffen, King, Sven: Thanks a lot guys!
That's some very clever stuff, Marcus! The bucket handles just great for the steering mechanism. Great job, pal! :-)) @Joonmin: Take a look here: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=2484c01 I have no idea why they stopped making these. I would love to have some in black...
Well, there are some great ideas here. That steering function is pretty genius. I built a 7w car that I'd hoped to post today, but the camera is giving me trouble, so it will be a few more days yet. It has steering, but each wheel has to be turned individually. I may steal your ideas some day. (sort of, I don't have the pieces to do it exactly the same.) Anyway, great stuff. Are you planning on joining the mocathalon this year?
