This is the first page of "Useful Engineering".
My idea is to create small and functional techniques wich can be used in any technic car.
About this creation
This is my first version of a clutch and is the one that I used in my Chevy Camaro ZL1. It works very well and only requires 5 studs long.
The green is the input and Yellow and Red are the output.
The only moveable part is the 5x3 Ang. Beam.
It needs a spring conected to it.
And this is my second clutch. It works so well as my first clutch.
The only diference between them is the space that they require, this one only needs 4 studs long.
The Green is the Input and the Red is the Output.
The only moveable part is the Cross Block 90º.
As in my first version, it needs a spring wich is going to create friction with the rubber.
I've uploaded an .ldd of this one.
If anybody use one of these on his own creation, please write there that this is my own idea.
Please tell me what you think about them.

Thanks for your kind comment on my Mini. You asked for tips on Technic car chassis - you could do worse than have a squint at this: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/342788 or, for new-style technic, see the work of Sheepo or Crowkillers. If you meant ideas for cars to build, well - just do the cars you love. Have fun! :-)
