MOC: Lil' Speedster


      I'm back with a tiny but functional car! It has HoG steering, front and rear suspension, and a little two-cylinder engine in the front! My favorite parts are the headlights because of the rare trans-clear connectors I used for them. I tried something new with the instructions, and made them in PDF format. Please let me know if you like them better!

MOC: Night Racer


     My latest MOC, Night Racer! It features opening doors, opening hood, and a buggy motor for speed! It has pop-up headlights and can drift with electrical tape on the tires. It steers with an M-Motor with part x928cx1 Hockey Spring attached for return-to-center steering. The buggy motor is attached to a V1 receiver and a LiPo battery from LEGO.com. It goes very fast!

MOC Spotlight: Ximos Mini Race Car by LXF

      This epic MOC was created by LXF, one of my favorite builders on Eurobricks. The car uses two M motors for drive and another M motor for return-to-center steering. It originally used a BuWizz (get one here), but I managed to cram a LiPo and V2 receiver in the back. My favorite aspect of the car is that it is so tiny! It is much smaller than most RC cars, maybe about 1/27 scale. It is an extremely clever build, with a lot of detail! The original model was grey, but I built it in black. Here is a link to the forum topic and instructions: Car

Set Review: Volvo EW160E!

      Hi! It's been a while since my last set review, so here is my take on the Volvo EW160E! With a rotating and extending cabin, new pneumatics, and outriggers, this set is packed with functions! Here is a link to the Rebrickable inventory: Inv.
Note: This was recorded before my new equipment, sorry for the bad shots.

Trophy Truck Mk. II


      It's finally here! One of the biggest MOCs I have made and one of the fastest! I tried out a bunch of bodywork solutions and I find this one to be the best. In a previous post, I mentioned buying Unimog tires, which I used on this model. The truck is powered by two RC Race Buggy motors, an RC unit, and an RC steering/suspension piece. The back has a winch to pull other lighter vehicles. I recently purchased some equipment for video recording, so the video quality may have improved a bit (at the time of recording, my tripod hadn't arrived yet). You can see this at Bricks by the Bay, this coming August. Here are the instructions: Instructions

Update on Builds

      I've been busy with a range of things, so I haven't had time to make anything new in a while. Here's a little update on things:
New MOC coming! Trophy Truck Mk. II
New set reviews! Volvo EW160E and Hauler (8264) are in the processing stage. 8880 is in the completed build, but no footage state. I just acquired a Williams F1 in desperate need of restoration, I have ordered stickers and parts.
Another MOC on the way! I am not sure what to call this, but it is looking like an SUV so far. Here are some pictures:
