Small Red RC Racecar
Small and fast. With full building instructions.
About this creation
The racecar-story continues





After finishing my Yellow racecar I had to make a second car so they could race against each other. Unfortunately, red was the only colour I had enough parts fron to make a second racecar. It had to be the same scale, it has the same wheels and wheelbase, is also powered by the 8878 rechargeable battery and has the front bumper with shock absorbers. It has PF front & rearlights



But there are many differences:

* The new red car is driven by a RC race-buggy motor with 2:1 gear reductionn, while the yellow one uses an XL-motor geared up 1:3. This makes the red car considerably faster, both in accelleration and top speed.

* The chassis is quite different and stronger.

* The return-to-centre steering uses shock-absorbers. It's based on a design by Mahjqa.

* This represents a mid-engine car while the yellow one was a front-engine car.

* This one has wing-doors instead of normal ones.

* No rotating steering-wheel this time. The hood was to small to fit in a good system.

* It was possible to place the receiver lower, not sticking out anymore.

* Although the same scale, it's smaller (35 x 18 x 12 studs. But it's built with slightly more parts
(772 in total, also counting the customized handset)



In the end, I like this one even more than the yellow one. I hope to make some race-footage in the near future.

And I thought your yellow one was good! I'd say this is even better, both in aesthetics and performance. And I even like the color...

Great model as usual, the big rear and small front wheel makes it looks like a dragster, fantastic !!

Quoting Ben Schevers it does look very cool. did you also buil a track so you can race both cars?
Yes, I improvised a racing-track in my attic (hence: attic-racer). But it won't be a fair race, cause this red one is quite a bit faster than the yellow racecar.

This is one nice piece of Technic build, it doesn't look like a Technic model from the thumb, keep it up pal.

Quoting Thomas Eckert I had seen it on Brickshelf, great MOC, congratulations. was your idea?
My idea was to make a typical mid-engine RC sportcar as small (& light) as possible, which would have a differential and return-to-centre steering

I prefer this one to the yellow one, its proportions are nicer.
