Now with McPherson strut and Wishbone/bell-crank suspension and only half the calories!
About this creation
Hey wait, don't look at this! Or read this caption. No, wait, read the caption but don't look at the photo. Yeah, that's it.
Originally intended to be my first 16-wide technique supercar, I soon realized my gravity-powered crankshaft wouldn't work on a flat-6 supercar. Foiled again. =P
The front still has McPherson strut style suspension and the rear has wishbone axles with a drivetrain(to nowhere! =D)
Upon typing this caption I know realized I forgot to edit out the abyss. You'll just have to master the Fushigi bear with it.
The side, with some vents.
The back, with lots of new "tech". I used the Malte-cheez technique, but by using pneumatic hose instead of flexy bar it reduces the pressure on the mounts. Also, the end bits of cheez can be set at a fancy angle. I'm learnding.
Epic shot. I just need some smoking tires and a highway. I can draw neither =P
Plenty of Opening goodies!
Some engine greeblies.
Google has about 2 pictures of the rear engine bay, and nothing much about the engine itself. So here's a generic flat six.
Spiffy red interior, since I don't have any red cars built currently, the interior is what I can do with a car's-worth of red cheez and jumpers.
Behold, Sir Fancy Dashboard the 3rd!
And the seats, which get no such grand entrance.
Here's some pics of the suspension for the front. Go add it to your MOC's, you know you want to. =P
1x1 antenna, with pneumatic hose covering the stick, the ball of the antenna fits into any technic-pin sized hole like a ball&socket joint. Doesn't fall out, either.
The United States has never lost a war in which mules were used. Fun fact alert.
There are twice as many kangaroos in Australia as there are people. The kangaroo population is estimated at about 40 million.
Excellent work dude! A lovely white Porshey. Thae back looks awesome! I love those door linings too but the red interior is a little too...red, different coloured carpets would have looked better. Sorry for being picky but on something this good all I can do is look for faults ;-)
Wow, that must have been a tough one! The rear end of the original Ruf is a big challenge to build. Those curves must have been nerve-wracking... The result is a great "cheese job"! :-)) The engine, suspension and interior are awesome, too. Great job!
Quoting Kalva Pevensie Great, but what car is this RUF based off of? I know all of them are performance improved Porsches so is this one based on the Carrera GT or something?
Ruf is an official car manufacturer in Germany (comparable to Alpina). What you buy is a Ruf not a Porsche. The CTR3 is a Ruf model. They have the permission to evolve the Porsche design, but most of the parts of the car are of Ruf origin.
Wonderful! I love the front and side look. I like how you did the . The engine is quite simple, but IŽll forgive that because there arenŽt any photos of it. The suspension and the interior are excellent. THe spoiler is great.I like how yo did the shaping. 5/5 :-)
Great, but what car is this RUF based off of? I know all of them are performance improved Porsches so is this one based on the Carrera GT or something? I can't think of any other Porsche this would look like.
A simply excellent MOC; it looks just like the real one! I really like how you brought out its curves! And that front steering mechanism is simply amazing! I would like more detailed pictures of how you made it. :) You are improving a GREAT deal recently! Keep it up! BTW, what wheels did you use? I've never seen those before! :) 5/5 -LB Jr.
