About this creation
For the instructions scoll to the bottom of the post

Hello !!

Ever since I took part in ACC races at the latest Lowlug meeting I've become addicted to racing with self-made LEGO-racecars. First I made a very simple RC chassis x2 (which was really ugly), and improvised a race-track in my own attic. There I raced against my brother until the batteries were completely empty.

So I just had to make small racecars that would also look nice. This is the first in a series of at least 2 small racecars:



The drivetrain is derived from my E.R.T.W.D.. And in contrast to my previous RC car, the Little Devil, it features return-to-centre steering which makes the car more controllable. It uses the technic axle connector rectangular triple spring-loaded to return the steering axle to neutral position.


Although it was built as small as possible, I did manage to include quite some features of which the rotating steering wheel is my favorite. It also has working frontlights and rearlights


The doors can be opened. But they have a small lock, so they won't open during driving. The trunk opens as well, giving a nice view of the drivetrain.


Since it has to endure some racing-abuse, it was made as strong as possible. And to protect the front, the bunper was fitted with shock-absorbers. So driving this thing and crashing into something (which happens regularly) is pretty safe.


The choice of wheels was a consequence of a number of aspects: initially all the wheels were of the 62.4 x 20 S type, but this resulted in weird-looking cars with wheels that were to big. So I switched to model team wheels for the front. But I kept the big rear-wheels because smaller wheels would require more gearing in the drivetrain. Eventually the big wheels give it a powerfull look.


Some technical data:
Lenth: 38 studs
Width: 17 studs
Height: 14 studs
Number of parts: 728 (including the remote controller)
Drivetrain: XL-motor with 3:1 speed increase.





Instructions

I've made complete step-by-step building instructions just as I did for my Little Devil. The Ldraw-file can be found at the bottom of this post. Full instructions can be downloaded as PDF-files on my website www.jurgenstechniccorner.com.



Hope you enjoy it. Feel free to comment.

Hello Mr. Jurgen, I have built this little master piece! It is really quite nice! I am planning to make it a manual car (driven by hand) as I find myself playing with those types more. Fantastic body work! on this little gem!

WOW!!!!!THIS IS SO SO SO SO COOOOOL!!! i woldn't be surprised if lego company made it a REAL kit! I don't make power functions cars because they require many parts, lots of time(at least for me, anyway) and knowing how to incorporate functionality and good looks in a large scale car. So,I just make mini figure and 4-wide scale cars because they require less parts, less time and take up less space. and so the only remote control cars i play with are not LEGO, just regular ones.BUT YOU SEEM TO BE REALLY GOOD AT THIS!!!

Quoting Alex G i love the car but have a question. what is the small yellow box that is in the place of a radiator on your car? i looked at the instructions and couldn't figure out what it was or what it did could you explain?
I think you mean this part: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=x928cx1 This part is fitted with an internal spring, which returns the steering-axle to neutral position.

Wow! My son and I are definitely going to build one of these! I like your "Small Yellow Racecar" a lot better than the "Snow White [Drifter] Car" posted at BrickInside ( http://www.brickinside.com/NeoView.php?Db=ReviewOwnCreation&Mode=view&Number=1798 ), since your car looks a lot more realistic and has the impact-absorbing bumper shocks. Your Building Instructions are excellent. Thanks for sharing your MOC!

Je hebt weer je keiharde best gedaan. Kijk je niet naar voetbal? Ik ook niet echt vanwege de chaosweken op school, maar je hebt een topcreatie afgeleverd man! Ik heb de achterwielen van mijn vierzits Ferrari 599 GTB ook aangedreven m.b.v. vier medium motoren, maar die van jou is supersnel. Leuke video trouwens, heel goed gemonteerd en de muziek mag er zeker ook wezen...goed afgestemd op de gele kleur.
