I found a cool LEGO model on Mecabricks recently and decided to see if I could set it up with physics.
Here’s how it went!
Primarily, this LEGO setup does not lend itself well to steering haha!
- The front wheels are attached at an angle, meaning that steering involves moving each wheel along the length of the car, resulting in on wheel always having to lift off
- There is only one axis of suspension, the rear wheels, that both have to move together
Other than that, it’s a pretty fun experiment. On an implemenation note, these are all hinge joints, including the wheels.
