Mechanics. They seem to appear less and less frequently here at TLCB. Such is the prevalence of LEGO’s (excellent) Power Functions electronics that mechanically operable functions have become a bit old-hat. However when done well, mechanical features can result in a model that’s more than a match for anything with a motor shoved in it.
Today we have one such example suggested to us by a reader, and it doesn’t have a battery box in sight. Built by Didumos69 of Eurobricks what it does have is a wealth of mechanical engineering, including all-wheel suspension, working steering, hand-adjustable seats, and a functioning sequential gearbox hooked up to a V8 piston engine.
You can see full details of the model at the Eurobricks forum via the link above, which includes detailed steps showing how each functional element was engineered. Click the link in the text above to make the jump.
