About this creation


Here we are at last!!! it's been AAAGGGGEEESSS since my last supercar project run, and here is my 3rd incarnation, Can you see the difference? it's not a ferrari based car, but a moc based on model 8448- The street sensation. it's been literally a decade since i last built it up with all it's parts, and it didn't take long once i had, to think about modifying it, but what to do? lower it? big bodykits? bigger engine? air ride suspension? hand brake? different ratio gearbox? it all went through my mind, but i decided to start with the engine...

the new engine is a v12, built around the original mounts for the v8, with the inlet work, and the camgear, a much more suitable engine for one of my moc's



with the new engine and suspension (more on that later) the body had to be widened to fit the tyres mostly, the rims are familiar items used on my hot rods and supercars, and are a mixture from the ferrari and the f1 car models, and if you look closely, the front has been modded to accept the 3 stud wheel hubs (honestly couldn't find the original grey hub parts :(



up at the back:



and up all round... :)



a nice close up of my remote-mounted air ride cylinders, and the rock arm to transfer the shocks and bumps..



and the engine :)



my own thoughts on this moc? a bit of a sell out on the design side, i took the original body and made it wider and more agressive, but didn't realy imput a lot apart from the rear wing (which i didn't like but was lost for ideas) and the front radiators which i do like still and have used in the next incarnation

my own rating? 4/5 - space to improve :P

Quoting Jutras LegoTeam Nice! aggresive lines,like the engine details,suspension config is also interesting (but the pict lead me to think theres a little stress in it)(look a bit crooked or maybe its just the camera angle??)the huge wing is too much for me. Very good overall 4/5
it wasn't the engine that was crooked, the air ram and the suspension swing arm were half a block off on each side, making the engine seem off, it was rectified before i dismantled the model, but apart from height adjustment, there wasn't a lot of 'suspension in it apart from the give in the components, so next time i'd probably have the air ram work in conjunction with the standard springs as well.. Thanks very much for the comment !
