Week TechVideo, 2010 #26 - Avenger, an hybrid offroader

Today I decided to pick something from my to post list...

This is one of the latest creations from Zblj, a Technic/Racers hybrid offroader which uses the wheels and some other parts from 8675, Outdoor Challenger (Outdoor RC subtheme, from Racers).

This is a less obvious combination that most, should never though about.

But the result is quite impressive and versatile. This monster can climb on a smooth surface at 55 degree angle.

According to Jernej it features an independent left/right side wheel drive, very flexible 4 link suspension on both axels, lighter body and bigger wheels with more traction and profile.

You ma find more photos from the Avenger, at Jernej's Brickshelf folder.

Wow, I always thought the only Outdoor RC parts compatible with the "regular" LEGO system were the shock absorbers!

Indeed, this is a good solution to the problem of LEGO manufacturing too small wheels... But then the scale bottleneck becomes the structure. Nothing some good ol' aluminium beams can't take care of... ;)

I've tried this, and been stuck at meshing the Outdoor RC wheels to standard Technic pieces. How was it done here?

Jernej said...

Sorry for late reply. I used a 24 tooth gear with 4 pins in the holes. They fit very good inside the wheels

Thanks! I will have to try that. I've wanted to use these wheels for outdoor rovers for a while now, and you may have provided the key. Thank you again - wonderful MOC!
