I almost forgot to say, we will be in the basement of the library.  I could not get the upstairs room this time.  There are stairs to the basement from the front and back as you walk into the library.

Date changed to the 28th due to a conflict with another Lego event.

We will be having a meeting on Saturday April 28th, in the Clark Public Library at 1:00pm.

This will be our annual "LUG support" meeting where each full member (must have at least a year in the LUG and dues must be paid to participate) will be allowed to fill a 1-gallon zip lock bag with parts!!
There will also be some sets given away at the meeting.

Hope to see you all there,
Dario

I like it. Nice job. I'm always drawn to functional builds.

Responding to myself. :)

I learned in the past couple of months that, nope, nobody's going to be impressed by a simple "Expert Builder"-era V8.

So I decided to take it up a notch.

I have the complete circa-1987 Dacta TC robotics kit / 9700 Control Center (part of my demo for this weekend at ToyCon). Sometime this summer I will attach the kit's counter wheel and optical sensor to the axle emerging from the rear of the motor. With that I can quasi-scientifically measure the V8 speed in any unit I like -- miles per hour, feet per second, or whatever. I also plan to program a joystick (again, this is using a 1980s eight-bit Apple II computer) to work as a gas pedal. Rather than just being binary on/off, the V8 will acceleration linearly as you move the joystick handle from bottom to top.

Maybe that'll earn me some LUG newbie cred. ;)

Hi,

Not sure if this will impress anyone in an AFOL club but I thought it was cool: I built a little V-8 motor from leftover parts in my stash.

Here's a video of it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5thK4McllfJVDFqaEw5bXJRZk0/view

If I have time, then I'll include it as part of the robot.
