Backlog: Experiment 7: EDGE RIDA

Aim: Build a vehicle that is built on the side of its wheels for extra grip

Details: The basic idea was to build a vehicle that has only a tiny amount of its wheels in contact with the ground. This would mean there is more pressure on the ground and so, more grip. This project was built as 4 separate motor hubs which I then put together with some pendular suspension and extra suspension to keep the battery box safe. The biggest problem when building, was securely attaching the motors to the main frame. When the motor span, it kept spinning off the frame. So I built a cage around the motors which kept them together.

I used:
4 M power functions motors
2 IR receivers
2 infra-red remotes
1 battery box

(How do you move that stupid picture up there? )  I tend to have these mood swings. You know. One moment you like lego. Next thing it gets boring and you find the outdoors or whatever more interesting. Well for me almost always, lego is my favourite hobby. But I’ve had this mood swing and have fallen back in love with lego star wars after finally signing up to MOCpages. I’ve STILL got all those technic creations to post but I’m too lazy. I’ll do it when I have a mood swing back to technic (if I have one).

Anyways enough rambling. I will most my best star wars MOCs here but all of them will go on MOCpages (When they finally accept my projects). Here are some links:

I guess I’ll post soon. Although I’m really lazy with blogging now. I just want to build, the lego bricks are calling me so I gue…
