W.I.P. Help! V2 Car Transporter
So here is my 2nd version of the powering system. I think it is alot better than the first one I uploaded yesterdaay. I'm just going to show the pictures.<br> If something won't work please let me know. And if this will work; please let me know that too.

Thanks for the help; but I already have found a system to power the axles; I will upload it tomorrow.

One more thing: It would make it easier to show solutions if you posted the LDD file under "instructions"

Hey,I saw this and i wasnt shure what kind help you needed so i made this page. http://mocpages.com/moc.php/317455 i hope it helps :)

Quoting Nils O. The connection to the drive shaft is simple: One gear on the left motor, one on the right motor and one in the center between them. Then you can connect the drive shaft to the center gear. If the gears aren't big enough, you can use three smaller gears instead.
Thank you very much! I did not know it was that simple.

Quoting Nils O. Oh, and before I forget that: If you use a differential, don't forget to use two "half" axles instead of a single one or the differential won't work!
Thanks for your help. I only have one problem; I just can't figure out how to connect 2 motors to 1 drive shaft. I hope the drawings and models will help me with that.

That's a good start, but I think it would be better to have a more symmetrical construction. If you want to use both motors to drive both axles the best would be to connect them to a centre drive shaft with some gears. Then you can position the differentials in the center and connect them to the drive shaft with some normal gears and some bevel gears. As an engineer I always say "The better and more simple it looks the better it will work".

Quoting George Staples Ah ok, I see what your trying to do. I would suggest putting the motors together into one shaft, and then using it to drive both axles. I'll make a LDD version later tonight and send it to you some how.
Ok, thank you very much, my e-mail is brickster.moc@gmail.com

I would really like to drive the front axle with 2 motors and the back one also with 2 motors but the diff on 1st axle blocks the way for the driveshaft from one of the motors. So the only option that was left was to drive the 2 axles with 1 engine and and the front axle with 1 engine. Maybe I should have said this before, sorry. So yes: 1 engine the front and back axle and 1 engine only the front axle.

From what you have, it looks like you want to drive the front axle with 2 motors and the rear axle with 1 motor. is that right? or would you like to drive both axles with both motors?

Quoting George Staples This looks like a very ambitious project! I have a semi truck model with 1 XL motor drive to 2 axles, if that would help give you some ideas: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/307288 (3 small pictures under the writing show the frame) Also if you would like me to help, I could build a LDD prototype for the rear axles. E-mail me @ saberpurple@yahoo.com if you would like some help.
Now I know how I can drive the 2 rear axles with one engine. But I now want to know how to drive 1 axle with 2 motors. Hopefully aren't my wishes to complicated to build.

Quoting Senator. Chincilla . http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=32270 Bevel gears will work much better. =P And it looks like you've got axles going through other axles?
Thanks for the tip; I will certainly use bevel gears sice everybody says they are better

You won't be able to have an axel connected to the engines by both the diff and the yellow four spoked knob-wheels. The best way to connect both engines to the axels is to go through one drive shaft. I'll draw you a picture if it would help? Flickr message me (link on my homepage).

Mathieu I would appreciate it very much. Mortalswordsman; thanks for the tip and no; I don't think the both axles need to be powered but I wanted to do something different; and I also don't know how to power 1 axle with 2 motors.

this thing scary me so much... tonight I take the time for modeling or build somethings for you.

Hi. I do not use power functions so maybe get more advice before changing anything. But the grey gears (that are at right angles to each other) might not take the power of the motor. They might slide out of position. I would suggest to use the newer bevelled gears and reinforce them with bushes so they donít slide . Do you have to have both axles powered?
