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:

Car System: Chassis and Body Types!

      My new car system is fully compatible with each other and will be updated! There are two chassis types: Manual and RC. There are also two current body types A and B. Based on recent feedback, Body B is the best body currently available. Instructions below.

More Parts!

More Parts!

      I acquired a ton of new parts and rare colors at a meeting! Some include a new Servo motor (yay!), a Spybotics module and remote (even more yay!) pearl light grey beams, orange Porsche panels, many cross blocks, an L motor, black bushes, black frictionless axle pins, and a whole set! The set is 8264 Hauler and is very cool! I will do a review on it soon.  Here is a link!
MOC Spotlight: Compact CUV
      This remarkable MOC was made by Madoca1977, one of my favorite builders. It is driven by two L motors and steered by a Servo motor. It has working front lights and locking doors. It also has an opening trunk and opening hood with a fake V8. Here is a video and a link to the Rebrickable page.

Desert Buggy

Desert Buggy
      This small buggy uses an M motor with a hockey spring for steering instead of a servo motor. It also features front compact steering and suspension (using a rare gear rack though). I especially like how the back panels are at an angle. It also has a two-cylinder dummy engine in the rear.
Instructions here:
Check it out!

More set reviews coming soon!


Trophy Truck With Sbrick+

Trophy Truck With Sbrick+

      I used my new Sbrick+ for this model. It is my biggest RC car to date! It uses a Buggy motor for drive and a Servo motor for steering. It has front independent suspension and rear soft suspension. It is pretty fast! Instructions Here:

Small Lego Order Has Arrived!

My (small) Lego Order is Here!
      Not too long ago, I ordered some parts that are used commonly but I did not have. They arrived about a day ago (1/19/170) and I am very happy. These are the parts I ordered: 4x Tire 94.3X38R (hubs did not come with the order), 2x Axle 11 Yellow, 1x Panel 1 Black, 1x Panel 2 Black, 4x 5L Suspension Arm, and 6x Engine Block Green. I am planning to use the tires very frequently. Also, I have two MOCs that are currently waiting to have instructions and to be posted! (Hint: one is a buggy-type thing)

Speedy Sedan

Speedy Sedan and an Sbrick+!

      Finally! I was on vacation for a while and it took a while to build and redo parts of this. It has a servo motor for steering and an L motor for drive. Anyway, right after I built this my new Sbrick+ arrived! I have had problems with my RC Buggy motor with a PF battery box, but that has been solved with the Sbrick. I have finished a Trophy Truck with it that will be posted soon. I now have a Eurobricks account also. Here is a link to the instructions and pictures and a video are below.
