Hi all.

I'm intending to undertake a small 'LEGO day' at my local school
as part of that school's Deaf Awareness Week, of which I did do last year,
and it was a 'hit' with the children and teachers alike.

Last year, I had a Tracked Racer (set 42065) as part of the interactive things
to play with, and I have decided to have another to allow a small 'race area'
to have the children compete against each other with.

So, to my joy, I have managed to get hold of another racer, and have changed
one's colours to all white instead of the Lime and White, so the children
would be able to identify 'theirs'.

I dismantled one, changed the necessary parts, and installed new batteries, and
I found that there are 2 distinctly different battery boxes, which in terms of
use isn't that much, but if one needs to replace the covers, there IS a difference.

The picture below shows this difference.

The one on the right has small ridges on the ends at the top, where we can see
the 'wings'.

The left cover is compatible with both types of boxes, but the right cover NEEDS
to be mated to the proper box as there is a recess for the tabs to go into when
clicking the cover into place.

I think a small note needs to be added to the appropriate section/s of the catalogue.

Feel free to use my image if this will help.

Regards,

Paul

Hi Admins.

I recently added 4 doors (4181/4182) to the catalogue, from set 7735, and I noticed
that the dimensions of the doors (stud dimensions) seem to be wrong when I added
them.

When I listed them, the dimensions are empty fields that can be added if necessary,
and it's laid out in the LxWxH format, and so, according to that, the dimensions
are as follows (stud wise) 4x1x5

But the dimensions are showing up as 1x4x5

Can this be looked into?

Regards,

Paul
