Ford GT-R race car
About this creation










Here is the front of the central "spine" between the contol arms. It extends into the interior and is the center console













Here is my 1/9 scale Ford GT-R, the race version of the ford GT. It has a six speed gearbox with reverse, working brakes and working clutch. The interior has a full roll cage. The car was going to be motorized like my R8, but I decided to build on an RC car after I finished it, so this one isn't motorized; however, a motor could be installed in about 5 minutes. I used a new construction technique on the chassis. There is a central "spine" that runs from the front suspension to the gearbox. This spine serves as the center console and as a mounting spot for the front suspension. This greatly increased the strength of the chassis. I also added two large cross members on either end of the floor pans, this adds more strength to the chassis and keeps the floor in place better

Update: As Piotr Pilarski pointed out, the front didn't look quite right, so me being a perfectionist, I had to make it look right. Now the car looks much better. Thanks for spotting that! I also revised the chin spoiler as well

NICE!!!! I like all the opening parts!!! The spoiler looks a litlle bit weird compared to the rest of the car. You got down the shape on the front realy well!! The interior could have some more work, tough it already looks nice!!! 5/5 :-D

The overall shape is fantastic! Normally I like technic models for the working functions, but this one also looks great.....

WOW!! It looks perfect! I could tell it was a Ford GT without reading the title! You nailed it! It would be awesome if you added pics of the underside and/or functions (steering for example). P.S. If you gave your opinion on my Mazda 787B it would be very appreciated. See Ya on my page!

Quoting Bing-Bong Brothers As always great car, probably your best one yet. However, it would be nice to see you integrate some lego panels or bricks using SNOT technique to give the car bodies a smoother, uninterupted feel over the great technical work underneath.
I dont have nearly enough regular bricks

Quoting El Barto ! Another great piece of work! Do you keep all of these in a display case or recycle them?
I recycle them. I wouldn't have the room for all my cars if I didn't, and I would be broke too

oohh How you did that, this is beautiful. Design aren't bulky and very homogeneous. You should start you own website, such as a blog or other, because mocpage is very rigid and slow. Keep working, your constructions are realy good tyler.

Very good creation! A race version of the Ford GT is a bit different from the norm.Very accurate, but a small criticism: the rear end could be more squared-off...Keep it up!

Quoting Tyler Reid "Thanks! and You're right about the grille. I like constructive criticism, It allows me to make my cars better. Now that you've pointed it out, I will make it better.should only take about 5 min or so. I tend to be a perfectionist. I actually was almost done with the car and wasn't satisfied with it so I tore it down and rebuilt it. Im glad I did, because it turned out much better"
Oh yeah. Now thats perfect. I didn't thought that this little detail would change it so much. Beutiful!

Quoting Ape Fight Awesome-y Awesome-y awesome. Perhaps your best yet and that is quite an achievement : ) 10/10

Quoting Piotr Pilarski Magnificent job dude. Although I must say I'm just a little bit dissapointed with the front end. I think that the front bumper/grill should be tilted and not parpendicular to the ground level, which would give the car a more characteristic and retro look. When i look at the back of this MOC i have no doubt its a GT, even if its just a thumbnail photo. When looking at the front not really. This is an amazing creation, and I myself don't have the skill nor the blocks needed to build such a thing, though you Tyler have both, and I think that this is not your best creation so far :) Keep on inspiring dude, You're a car god.

As I can see you applied a lot of technics from your previous models and it looks like you are adding everytime something else to evolve your upcoming models. That´s why your scale models become very cool and more specified. I´ve seen a lot of remarkable elements fom your other scale models. Excellent!
