This is the second page of "Useful Engineering". My idea is to create small and functional techniques wich can be used in any technic car.
About this creation
This is my version of an Autoblocante after a lot of tries. It's very strong and small. I haven't made it with an out gear because there is a lot of ways to make it. I've made only the basics wich is the most difficult part. I've uploaded also the .ldd for people who always ask for it.
If you need another Autoblocante, I can send you one wich I've also rebuild in .ldd but isn't so reliable. That one has the out gear.
Hope you like it!
Please rate it and comment.
Feel free to ask anything.
I've already answered you. But I can try to explain again. Imagine the rear axle of your 8070. It has a simple differential wich is great for curving. The outer wheel runs a bit more than the inner wheel. But, if you lift one wheel from the ground, the car stops and only the lifted wheel can run. To solve this problem, the autoblocante was built. If you lift one wheel from the ground, the autoblocante locks, the car doesn't stop and pass over your hand. I hope you undersand what I wrote.

What does it do? It looks good though...
An Autoblocante is a differential wich when one wheel is stopped by na obstacle, it automatically blocks and that wheel start moving. It is great for OffRoaders because there are a lot of obstacles and some places where some wheels can't touch the ground. A normal diff would stop the car and the wheels would continue moving without touching the ground. If you still don't undestand it, just build it and try it.
Alex, i'm not sure what an Autoblocante is but a differential is a part connected to the axle which allows the wheels to spin at slightly different speeds so the wheel opposite the way a car is turning goes farther, that way the car won't spin out of control when it goes into a turn. EDIT, it seems to be differential in another language.
This looks very good, i'll have to build one to see how it works :)
