Bluetooth, RC, racing, and more! Go behind the scenes with my Lego Mindstorms Ev3 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Replica!
Special thanks to Builderdude35 for his Bluetooth tutorials!
CTS-eV3 is a Lego replica of the 2010 Cadillac CTS-V. With Rear Wheel Drive, lots of speed, and more than adequate torque, this motorized creation is like the real car. Having been over half a year in the making, there has been many trial-and-errors (including chassis, drivetrain, and exterior redesigns). But I am quite satisfied with the final outcome! CTS-eV3 has a 4.5:1 gear ratio (minus the differential), accomplished by driving a 36 tooth gear meshed with an 8 tooth gear in a unique setup. Actual speed is a few tenths under 4 Kph! This two door coupe has been relatively replicated, including the visible V8 piston engine along with the Corvette inspired supercharger! Continue reading
My first Technic pullback racer MOC, an aerodynamic race car with two pull back motors! Lightning fast + extreme torque! Features dual rear wheels for maximum traction and flexible metallic tubing. Upon further testing, Aero Racer was gauged at both a short distance test and a long distance test: traveling 10 feet in .9 seconds, and traveling 25 feet in 2.8 seconds. Continue reading
I’m back with my first public LEGO stop-motion animation! This is a music video I made of the song God of Possibilities by Brian Free & Assurance. I’ve had experience with a few Brickfilms (some of them have remained a work-in-progress since years ago), and I have another one I’ve been working on recently that’s coming soonish!
42026 Lego Technic Black Champion Racer clone, kept as close to the original model as possible. Different color scheme, uses pieces mostly from 31313 Mindstorms Ev3 Retail Set and 42000 Technic Grand Prix Racer. NOTE: Tires have a slightly larger diameter. Continue reading
Just a short, little video showcasing my modified 42026 Lego Technic Black Champion Racer. I replaced the street tires with balloon tires to convert it into an off road version, and I had to reposition the panels to fit the larger tires (look closely on the front and sides). In my opinion, it looks better with the panels relocated anyhow. And sorry to those who like the original model with stickers… this has no stickers. Acceleration is a little slower than the original, but top speed is a plus!
My first Technic review of set 42026 Black Champion Racer with Pullback motor. 138 pieces. Includes unboxing and speed build! Continue reading
Preliminary design of my 2010 Cadillac CTS-V replica built with Lego Mindstorms Ev3. FINAL MODEL WILL DIFFER. Tell me what you think of it so far in the comments below! Any suggestions? You never know, they may have a role in the final version!
After a bit of an absence, I am back with a technically failed project. Rally Rac3r was built to be very fast with its 9:1 gear ratio, but the resulting low torque prevented reaching top speed in little time. It features exhaust pipes, opening gulling doors, rally-worthy lights along with accessory roof lights, rear spoiler, return to center steering with gear rack, smooth flowing aerodynamics, and more.
