Hideous car, but with great functions. I wanted to build it a very long time ago, and now I finally did.
Including LDD instructions for an axle.
About this creation
It all started a few years ago. I wanted to make a car, which could park sideways. I ran to my computer to make some axle ideas in LDD. But I couldn't make an axle which was compact and strong, so I decided not to build this car.
But then you get older and you gain more experience. And a few weeks ago I didn't know what to do, so I decided to make a restart with this project.
And in no time, I had one of the axles.
My first concepts had no differentials. That caused problems with steering.
So I built a second chassis, which had differentials. Then, I started to build the body.
I tried to make it futuristic, but now it's very ugly :(
This car has four wheel drive and four wheel steering. The front and rear axle are independently controlled.
Here you see all the steering options:
The 'door' is also very futuristic, but a bit of a flaw in car parks :)
The most of the building time, I spend on the interior. I'm very pleased with the result:
I saw a program about future cars at television once and I got inspired by some functions of the cars I saw. One of them is the steering wheel, you can pass it to the passenger:
One note for the instructions:
The axles aren't very strong. The red gears in this picture will skip tooths sometimes.
Parallel parking would be a snap! Great concept, the functions make up for the bizarre technic beams, which in and of themselves really aren't that bad. I like the interior, it reflects the futuristic nature of the MOC. Splendid!
