Alternate model of Technic set 42000 Grand Prix Racer
About this creation
It's been a long time since I designed an alternate for a Technic set. So it's about time for another one! Here's my Hot Rod or Street Rod version from set 42000.
Includes the following functions:
- V8 engine
- Rear wheel drive
- Full independent suspension
- Working steering wheel and HoG
- Opening back/ spoiler with mini linear actuator
- Opening doors and bonnet (manual)
A tapered front with some small headlights.
Side profile including exhaust pipes and a subtle red line.
The wide back.

Update: Now you can also build this model if you'd like!
Full detailed instructions are now available for a small fee at MOCplans.

A very cool alternative. I especially like the body work. The wheel base is a little wide but I suspect that cannot be helped due to the suspension arms. Love the narrow nose with grille. As you know I love F1 cars and have been looking at this set, but trying to resist buying it as I have too much lego as it is!!! :D. Thanks for your feedback on my latest, I have responded.
Great Job! For this reason I bought this set. I just started to learn the Technic. Still quite difficult for me. ;o)))
But I think, this is not a typical set to beginers.
Which set would you recommend?
Better than the official set, and a lovely model in its own right. I'd buy it : ) 5 stars, a really class Technic model. As on Flickr, you're on TLCB today; http://thelegocarblog.com/2013/07/12/b-side/ I'll invite you to the 'Blogged by...' group
Simply smashing, it reminds me of a Plymouth (or was it Chrysler, oh how thw mind goes with age) Prowler that came out a few years ago for a limited run. It would be so sweet to see this one with power functions tearing around but I'd still take it as is!
