The Mandalorian MOC was fun. This one was even better. Inspired from Lego Set 42111 I decided to build Lego Dom’s Dodge Charger motorized & customized. Ingredients are a fast buggy motor as the main drive, a Light & Sound Kit, and some other changes.
The first challenge faced was where to position the Technic Motor 5292, while I wanted to keep the functionality of the V8 engine. The drive motor should be placed somewhere where it would not interfere. After considering all possible options, so the result was to place the drive motor directly behind the V8 engine. Using a few additional pieces and a 16 tooth gear, so the motor was coupled directly to the V8 engine.
I’ve installed and connected the Power Functions Servo Motor 8804 to the steering system, so I found the perfect spot at the rear next to the steering gear. No additional gears were required, so the Servo motor fitted perfectly.
- Power Functions Servo Motor 8804
- Technic Motor 5292
- Power Functions LED´s 8870
- Power Functions Remote Control 8879
Next was the LEGO® Power Functions Rechargeable Battery Box 8878 placement, so the trunk turned out to be the perfect place. The wires were carefully routed to the Power Functions LED´s 8870, finally connected to the Battery Box.
After testing the prototype, I realized that the ride height is too high, as a result, I’ve developed a method to lower the stance making it look much more better. Good thing, no extra parts for the rear axle fix were needed. For the front axle I’ve replace the springs with 2-2 “1 x 6 LEGO® Thin Technic Liftarms“ ( 32063 ). Last but not least, I’ve replaced the medium stone gray wheels 43.2mm D. x 26mm with chromed ones from CustomBricks.
