Set Alternatives . Classic Technic sets are wonderfully versatile.... . The MOC Olympics are a truly splendid competition. They challenge you to build outside your comfort zone and you can surprise yourself with some of the things you can create. I'd recommend it to anyone. After my exit in round 3, I fancied a quick trip right to the heart of my own comfort zone - early Technic. The newest set used in this post was made in 1981... My favourite set of all time is 8860 - the black car chassis from 1980 with the flat four engine and iffy suspension. This off-road buggy type thing has a rear mounted V4 engine, a two speed gearbox, all round suspension (live axle rear and sprung pendular front) and working steering. The rearward weight bias, softish suspension and short wheelbase give it pleasingly oversteery handling characteristics on the kitchen floor :-) What, you didn't seriously expect me to grow up, did you ? This has been seen before, but it fits the theme - it's made using only the 850 forklift truck and 855 crane sets (apart from the figures..). The crane itself is little changed from 855 (longer boom, smaller cabin); the extra 850 pieces helped give it a better chassis with working steering by Hand Of God and another control to rotate the boom. Luke wants his Landspeeder back... The 857 Motorcycle is a lovely thing, but I always thought the sidecar was, well, a little ugly and ill-proportioned... ... so I used the sidecar pieces to give it some panniers and a top box. It gained a stand as well, and lost the slightly pointless 'kick start'. A lathe made with 856 Bulldozer pieces... ... geared to spin the crank at 75x input speed. Careful with that - this is a mint condition set and this is quite capable of scorching the bricks! 8860 again. A 'top fuel' dragster with V4 and steering. The official 2nd model's a dragster as well; this looks better but has the structural integrity of a wet blancmange... ... never mind, the adjustable air brake's nice. I took a slight liberty with this one and used an extra steering pulley for the front wheels... please don't be mad... Something else that's been seen before - a dumper truck made using 850 parts. This is a refinement of an earlier version. The man still can't reach the lever to pull the bucket back up... Thanks for looking - tell me your favourite!
