More heartless stress testing. This time the victim is the 8-tooth gear. Is the newer Type 2 version stronger? Let's find out. Technic, Gear 8 Tooth Type 1 [3647] Technic, Gear 8 Tooth Type 2 [10928] The results (using PF M-motor): 1:1 (4 Ncm) - ok 3:1 (12 Ncm) - fails against another 8-tooth gear 5:1 (20 Ncm) - ok against a gear rack 9:1 (36 Ncm) - ok against a gear rack 15:1 (60 Ncm) - fails against a gear rack the results were the same for Type 1 and Type 2


Vsauce Puppet : We have gotten to the point that we will take revenge on bits of plastic by making torture machines out of other bits of plastic Lego is one of the best inventions ever

Gavin s : The sound of the building is so satisfying


seasong : This really grinds my gears

Bisqwit : I haven’t seen that type 2 gear before. When/where was it introduced?

Hugo Gresse : hmph! 🤣

Thomas den Bakker : Skidadle Skidoodle your gear is now a noodle

Victoria Lauren : Don't give up, you'll find a way to get to 100 Kilos yet! 😄

Just an Egg : The sound of the bricks going together is sooooo satisfying

wizard taco man : 1:55 when a lego steps on a lego

Gen : 1:55 when a lego piece randomly phases out of existence

Eternal : Ah that intro. So relatable!

CJonthelake : 0:04 that “hmph” I’m dying now 🤣🤣

LR Nappa : 0:02 R.I.P your foot 😭

Esven : Out of question are there any sensors or measuring instruments this channel is in need of? I'm not sure if I'll be able to help too much but I'm an electrical engineer with some tools at home so if you let me know what you need it's possible I can help.

Short Stop Motions : and as always: those painful pieces of plastic can handle more then i can

Nikey161 : Step on a small gear. Inflict it with small slaps.

Salini K. Bowen : This man is a legend, voluntarily stepping on a lego for a video intro

the face in da wall : How did you survive stepping on a lego??? You could have DIED!!!1!!!!11!!

Sskrimp_TeX • : So you are torturing a baby gear just because you left it out and stepped on it? How cruel can someone be! legos have feelings too!

Carum Sarene : I would actually say Type 2 is worse. It seems to be made of a softer plastic than the Type 1. For buildable figures, I came across a few issues: •The pieces are semi-flexible, meaning no stiff connection. •The pieces aren't correctly measured to fit on axels, meaning they can slip off half pins. (All my Type 2 gears I squished to avoid this issue) •Despite intending to be used for friction, they lose friction easily. It's depressing to know that my 2001 Lewa Mata has more friction in his gears than my 2015 Lewa—which can no longer hold up his axes for posing. I actually learned it's an unavoidable issue with molding. Not that the molding is worn down, but that the molds they're using are ineffective for the mass production they have. I have to be extremely careful with all of my Technic pieces, because every single one of them is like glass. They lose friction after a few uses or just break all together. The 2008 Lime Joints are nothing compared to the 90% of Technic pieces today.

plut o : Whenever you speed rebuilt it i felt like i was playing a lego video game

Sum Gehnyooiss : the advantage to type 2 that I've seen is that it can't sink into the pin holes.


ch4meli0n : i think that the only advantage of the type 2 is, that it can be driven in a 90° combination. i hope that makes sense ^^"

Benjámin Péter : Basically, torturing the gear, because YOU stepped on HIM. Whatever, great vid!

unogazzy84 : type 1 is like regular steel, it just bends. Type 2 is more like hardened steel, it bends just a little with higher loads before it snaps. The two gears are similar but type 2 is a little stronger. For the ultimate test; try using the type 2 in the press. I really love this channel and it serves a purpose more than entertaining people; It shows the limits of Lego pieces which is really good. Keep on doing what you're doing :)

MrPotatoFudge : Apparently they can't handle much. Now we need a paper shredder made of gears. That would be cool

Jorge Álvarez : How much load does a knob gear handle?

MeinCouch123 : I dunno if a lego gear could handle my LOAD if you catch my drift

Atte789 : Tee semmone laite jossa on iha sikana noita rattaita vierekkäin et jos vaikka laittaa paperii sen välii nii se menee silpuks.

EVPointMaster : I would like to see you compare Lego to 3D printed replacement parts

MadmanLava : *steps on a lego* Normal people: *tosses lego back with others* You: *devises a series of tests to find the optimal way to destroy said piece*

LIiMANO Liimano : this speed up building sound is statsifiyng

Martin M : What am I doing with my life, watching lego bricks stress testing 🤣

Decidous : 0:07 thats already abuse to the gear

colin gregory : counter prefer year nafrx raw minute landing divide especially innocent call.

Fabiwalker : Type 2 is definately better against to radial force, or...stepping on it. Some of my Type 1's are actually crushed because I stepped on them, this doesn't happen with Type 2.

ATN orange : All of this just because you stepped on it. The gear must be sent to hell.

xX_Ennard_Xx / : The revenge is ours!

RC4LIFE : You are really talented! Lego KING!

NubPlayer33 : intro: **singing and dosent sees the lego** **steps on it by accident** *AIII*

John Bigless : 0:04 That anger tho.

necronsplayer : My man literally stepped on a LEGO in order to film this. Thank you for your sacrifice.

Nacho Taco : Ahh..that intro is cringy!

Birdie McChicken : The Brick Experiment Guy is How To Basic?

Ph3nomen0N : 1:51 -

THEOFFICIAL TASTYNACHO089 : Every time you rebuild your machine it sounds like emmet building from from the LEGO movie lol

Thunderhawk51 : 1:55 now you see it 1:56 now you don't 😂
