Aero Racer 2.0

The original Aero Racer featured a dual motor setup. This is a completely overhauled pullback racer with three hard-coupled pullback motors.

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!

Extent of Mass Data Loss + POLL

Hey guys, I have an update on the data loss I experienced recently. I have lost all my youtube video file archives, several important frames for my upcoming stop-motion animation, all documents of my book I’ve been working on, all videos for a Technic set review, a lot of pictures, and countless more.

The bad news being said, I do have some good news (though not outweighing the bad). I am at a fork in the road considering my LEGO collection, and I really need your advice! Please participate in the poll below; it may affect my outcome!

 

The 45560 Lego® Mindstorms® Ev3 Expansion Set comes with 853 pieces (i.e. beams, pins, wheels and tires, gears and steering racks, panels, speciality parts).
