good work ( like alway's)
but wath do you think that's the best solution for steering with a M motor (I meen witch toothweels do you need to use for easly steering with a M motor)

You are a lego GOD... and I just found you. I downloaded you step by step instructions for the gearboxes... is there any chance for a step by step instruction for the suspensions too?

Sheepo said...

Only looking closely the digital files, you must be able to build an axle without step by step instructions

Hello Sheepo,

I've just downloaded SR3D and the file with all the chassis and axles above. When I have uploaded one of your files to SR3D, I don't know how to rotate the selection. Can You please tell me how to rotate the whole selection? I've already searched a lot at the internet - but without any luck.

I hope You will help me..

Sheepo said...

Very easy, on the model keep pushed the mouse right button and move it ;)

NXTfreak said...

Can you post them step by step? Or PDF? Becouse i can't open the "SR 3D building".

Anonymous said...

mi computer non leje los files! puede caricarlos en pdf?

Sheepo said...

Because you need SR3D Builder to open it...

Damien Nicholas said...

will you have step by step instructins for all the MPS's and not just a 3D image on SR3D?

Sheepo said...

The MPS elements are very simple, and I think that they don't need a step by step instructions.

jack10142 said...

Could you take pictures of the bottoms of the MPS for the people that are unable to run SR3D?

Sheepo said...

If you can't run SR3D, go to the autor webpage and read the help to install it

Elmer Balentina said...

What suspension did you used by your mini cooper Mark 1? (Front and back wheels) Pls give links,

Thanks!!!

i changed the file names to .LDR and when i open them it wont do instructions and sr3d doesn't work at all

Sheepo said...

It is imposible get the step by step instructions directly from .ldr file in any program. But the files are very simple, you can reproduce the axles only looking the 3D model.
