nicjasno.com

Many of you most likely, already know the nicjasno.com website from Alex Zorko.
But some certainly don't, and will find it just great!

That's all about motors, cars and off-course LEGO TECHNIC.
The website, integrates a forum where many TECHNIC fans, discuss their constructions, mechanics in detail, how things work and their LEGO creations.

Alex, made several high-speed pneumatic motors, from which you can find there the photos, videos and instuctions.
His top model (not the one on the video below) breaks the 1400 rpm!...




4 cylinder inline motor (1220 rpm).


Alex, also made several big detailed cars, which also incorporated its motors.
See below a few photos (many more cars/motors, can be found at the original website).




2008 Dodge Challenger




2005 Ford Mustang

And many others,...
Just another great site where you can enjoy LEGO and the most important, LEGO TECHNIC!

That's some impressive stuff, I never imagined pneumatics could be so fast!
But I'd never be capable of building such a thing... not only because of its complexity, but also because it involves glueing some pieces together and cutting/drilling others apart.

Great stuff!Hope to be able to "MOC" like that...some day!

Forgive if this is a silly question, I am quite ignorant: what do these motors "run" on? What is their fuel? What does pneumatics have to do with it.

Hi,

it is no a silly question, once you don't know the answer.

These motors run with "compressed air" from maybe an industrial like compressor.
Thats why they are called as LPE ("LEGO Pneumatic Engine").

I believe this is more "academic" or funny experiments than practical ones. ;)

Thanks, Conchas, but for some reason I can't access nicjasno.com, the operation was "aborted". Does anyone have a detailed explanation?
