LEGO master builder and Youtuber Attika has created a new LEGO project using a RD car engine and some technical LEGO pieces to create an awesome Lego Technic Drift Wagon.
Check out the video below to learn more about the build and see it in action. The remote control car is connected to engines which have been attached to each axle.
Features and components used :
– 2 RC buggy motors (1 for each axle)
– 1 Servo motor for steering
– 1 M motor for brake
– 4 pair of LED lights (it has nothing to do with drifting :-D )
– 2 1200mAh RC LiPo’s to feed the beast No Lego power source would be capable to provide enough current without dramatically raising the weight.
– 2 Sbricks to govern all the things above.

The buggy motors (using the faster, inner outputs)built in traverse to avoid any additional gearing and friction. There is only one gear connection per axle at the differentials. Brake applies on the rear cardan-shaft, so technically more like a handbrake, aiming to help changing direction, in other words for sharper turns.
Wheels are 1/10 RC wheels with a layer of insulation tape on them to reach the “desired loss of traction”. I find their geometry (diameter/width, offset) more accurate then the available Lego wheels in the given size. And they look badass too. 😀 The bodywork: Never’ve been my strong side, I’ve been trying to give a recognizable shape, while balancing between the lack of my talent and the weight it is given to the vehicle, I hope the performance compensates you for the missing doors. 😉
