Posted March 16, edited. The differential drives the legi. A pair of longitudinal axles support each seat and allow it to translate forward and back. A pair of shock absorbers provide support. Thanks guys for the compliments. One is on each axle, and one planet gear in the middle allows the axles to turn at different rates. The pivot point of the u-joints is carefully aligned with the pivot points of the suspension.

The color coded computer image shows lfgo configuration in each gear. Proportions are just on spot – you can clearly see smaller model is like a younger brother to larger one. The steering arm itself pivots on upper and lower king pins which fit into sockets in the control arms. 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.

Posted March 16, Click for an animation of the transmission shifting. Edited March 19, by Appie typos and couldn’t 88865 topic before posting? The “cylinders” are actually square. The limitations u noted r completely understandable given the limitations of Lego element possibilities.


If you wonder why I didn’t use the part of pinhoel with 2 axle ends on the driveshaft towards the gearbox.

Thank you lrgo much guys. Already have an account? The engine also has a number of aesthetic features such as a pair of exhaust manifolds.

Lovely, instantly recognizable and I always liked the original set as well, so great choice. In addition to the ability to adjust the position of the seats, these seats also can be reclined! Because it is a four bar linkage, the wheel stays perpendicular to the ground throughout its travel. Each pair of opposing cylinders shares a common crank pin.

LDD available for download here. The front suspension uses the new control arms parts blue and steering arms white. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. A lever in the cabin pushes an axle forward and back see computer image.

Kudos on making the lights work, brilliant. 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. To compensate for this I decided to make the suspension smaller in width, so that the total width with kego included would be in scale edit: I think I will have a go building one like yours as well. This was the first Lego “supercar” I build when I ,ego about 8 years old.

That resulted in this 11 stud wide suspension, which was alot better to work with leego mounting a body to it. Click for an animation of the rear suspension in motion. Have you any pictures of yours? Power is driven through a pair of universal joints on each side. 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.

llego The reason why that isn’t simply an axle with a red bush is because from the front view that is visible above the dash and I don’t like that. You can see in the images that the tie rod legk are not directly behind the kingpins, but are inboard.

A pair of vertical two blade rotor parts are used to support the four bar linkage. Also the rear got some much needed inforcement to remove the flimsy look of the 10 stud wide suspension. Brilliant little bugger, your small builds get better and better. There are no rear seats.

Very nice little tribute. LvdH Looking at the comments, I’ll probably make my own LDD within the next couple of days, so people can build it if they would like to.

Also, when the headlights are up a bush in that position makes it harder to steer. The engine is 1 stud too high in scale, but this I could not combine lower with the suspension.

This axle turns a crank which pushes up the headlights about 45 degrees. A little turn of that LBG bush and the seat won’t move.
