The SharkBot robot is built with Lego Mindstorms Ev3 and is basically a modified version of Builderdude35’s Timmyton 5.5 robotic shark. It features aerodynamic styling, mechanical upgrades, modified programming, and more (including both autonomous behavior and remote control function). Continue reading

My latest addition to my MINDSTORMS and Technic collection: 42029 Lego Technic Custom Pickup Truck. Stay tuned for a review!
Building instructions in form of a LDD now available for my Lego Mindstorms Ev3 hand generator vehicle!
Here is my model review of the Timmyton 5.5 robot shark built by Builderdude35. It is built using only one 31313 LEGO Mindstorms Ev3 set.
Technical features: 1 programmable Intelligent Brick, 2 Large Motors, 1 Medium Motor, 1 Color Sensor, 1 InfraRed Sensor
Lego Mindstorms Ev3 Intelligent Bricks communicate over 190 feet through Bluetooth! Go behind the scenes with my 2010 Cadillac CTS-V Replica, CTS-eV3!
Special thanks to Builderdude35 for his Bluetooth tutorials!
This tutorial shows how to increase the firmness of your LEGO tires! If your Mindstorms or Technic creation is pushing the tires down like a flat tire due to heavy weight, or if you want less rolling resistance from squishy tires, you’ve come to the right place! I hope this tutorial is a big help! Continue reading
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
