About this item

The LEGO® Technic Idea Book: Wheeled Wonders is a collection of hundreds of mechanisms for cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles that you can build based on their pictures alone. Each project uses color-coded pieces and is photographed from multiple angles, making it easy to see how the models are assembled without the need for step-by-step instructions. Every model illustrates a different principle, concept, or mechanism that will inspire your own original creations. You're encouraged to use these elements as building blocks to create your own masterpieces.

The Technic models in Wheeled Wonders spin or move things, drag race, haul heavy gear, bump off walls, wind up and go, and much more. You'll discover how to build differential gears, implement steering and suspension, and design clutch and transmission systems to use in your own vehicles.

This visual guide, the second in the three-volume LEGO Technic Idea Book series, is the brainchild of master builder Yoshihito Isogawa of Tokyo, Japan. Each title is filled with photos of Isogawa's unique models, all of which are designed to fire the imaginations of LEGO builders young and old.

Imagine. Create. Invent. Now, what will you build?

NOTE: The LEGO Technic Idea Book series uses parts from various Technic sets. If you don't have some of the pieces shown in a particular model, experiment by substituting your own parts or visit the No Starch Press website for a list of the special parts used in the book.

LEGO TECHNIC is designed to allow builders to create more advanced models with moving parts, like those built with LEGO MINDSTORMS. The Unofficial LEGO TECHNIC Idea Book: Vehicles offers hundreds of ideas and examples for building mechanisms with TECHNIC. This volume focuses on vehicles that can drive, turn, move things, and go backwards. The book is color throughout, with little to no text accompanying its diagrams; rather than tell you what to think, you are encouraged to use your own imagination. The book's illustrations demonstrate various ways to build TECHNIC vehicles, which you can use as starting points for your own creations. Vehicles begins by teaching readers about tires, rotation speed, and how to build a simple car with a motor, then demonstrates more complex actions, like how to use differential gears; make a car turn or move items; add car suspension with rubber bands or springs; and go backwards and forwards and switch rotational directions. The Unofficial LEGO TECHNIC Idea Books are for anyone who wants to create a moving masterpiece, as well as those who want to make original robots with MINDSTORMS.
