About this creation
Added Features
-6 speed manual transmission
-Remote control drive (M-motor)
-Remote control steering (servo motor)

Exterior
Thumbs up to Lego for the bodywork on this model.








Interior
The gear lever drives the transmission now, instead of switching between functions.


The interior looks weird because the gearbox is way too wide for the scale of the car. In hindsight, 4 gears probably would have been better. I'm not trying improve the looks of the model, so I'm not too worried about it.


Functions
The main motivation for this project was to learn how to build and incorporate a transmission. I made a 6 speed manual transmission with the following gear ratios:
1st - 16.8:1
2nd - 10.2:1
3rd - 9.3:1
4th - 5.6:1
5th - 2.2:1
6th - 1.9:1




I'm not really impressed with the looks of the original spoiler, so I didn't mind sacrificing it to make room for the IR receiver and drive motor.


A servo was used for steering. I was able to fit it underneath the engine.


The doors and hood still open in the same way, but are no longer driven by a motor.




All the other original functions remain (pistons, suspension, differential).
