Five stars, as always! By the way, are you epicMOC?


I built a two speed gear box like that useful but it gets anoying very nice :)


Wow, creative awesome, and perfect. 5* like the others give. I also want to ask too, are you epicMOC? Your creation seems to be almost the same.


I mean this creation


@DamonMM2000 Yes I am! I came up with a better username, so I just moved.


Yah I agree with damonmm2000 your style seems to fit with epicMOC and he deleted his acount


Then are you going to post results for the dragster challange


@ TheMindGarage: Precisely as I thought! At first I was wondering if it was because something happened to your old account because all your comments from that accounted are deleted from the site. Thanks for the info (and the surprise!) :P


I don't know - if the comments were deleted, who knows what happened to epicMOC's robot posts. The gallery is extremely clogged and searching for them will take ages. It will likely take a long time, but I hope to post the results.


Well I hpe you post results and I know what it's like trying to hide your identity as I don't like people to know I'm funnyduck99 I always find a way to do something stupid and everyone hates me and still I feel bad about rating your bot 1* and I wish those comments got deleted


Uh... In your ST3ALTH model you said you were inspired by epicMOC's MINIGUN. So how can you be inspired by yourself? And why should you hold off so long?????


Dude! Nice. Just, just wow. I really need to turn technic sets to mindstorms. 5***** + follow+ favorite!


I wanted a fresh start. And don't worry about the 1* rating.


neat

Greetings with my next vehicle: a record breaker, in more ways than one! As a challenge, I have decided to create the narrowest possible car with supercar specs. I used 68.8x36 wheels, which are commonly used on large LEGO cars. I have incorporated a differential, full independent suspension, drive, steering and a 2-speed transmission, yet the car is just 14 studs wide, 9 studs of which is wheel. This is why it might be an unofficial record-breaker – I highly doubt anyone can improve on the width while using the same wheels and the same specs. I found that the trick with the suspensions was that the wheels are partially hollow, so some of the suspension could fit inside the wheel, vastly reducing the width. Driven independent suspensions are often very wide, because the conventional double-wishbone type needs four universal joints, which add a lot of width. So I invented a new suspension type, similar to the one used on front of my CUTLASS model. It works by mounting each wheel on a lever, which turns to allow the wheel to move up or down. For a driven suspension, the lever has gears inside, like a portal axle gear hub. The front suspension is a normal double-wishbone type, but made as narrow as possible. As for the transmission, it is loosely based on Sariel’s 2-speed ratchet transmission. It shifts by changing the direction of the motor. The main downside to this transmission is that the vehicle cannot reverse. However, it doesn’t need an extra motor to shift. For more detail, please see Additional Information. Please follow, favourite and 5* if you liked this robot, and remember to check out more of my stuff. I am planning an incredible transmission to show you, so keep your eyes peeled!
