About this creation
Starting off with the back, just like usual. Not usual from me, but hey.
I used* Lego911's suspension in the rear, and it came out a bit wonky...** so now I have a stanced Lotus! :D
*When I say "used," what I really mean is that I said to myself, "I remember seeing that design 4 months ago, I can totally build it without refreshing my memory!
**It came out a bit wonky because I built it entirely wrong. F for effort!
At this point, I'm sure you're all expecting some wit. Unfortunately, I just got back from 4 hours of solid lecturing at college, from which I am bored witless. All I remember is stoichiometry, cold weather, and that giant chassis some British chap posted earlier... :p
The steering lock is great, but do note the wheels aren't connected to anything. Heck, there isn't even a steering rack! The motion is just heavily dampened by some friction pins.
Also behold my ratchet photography. I edited out the line in my shelf, the screw holes, and set up my camera! (What, only a year after I bought it?)
The engine bay, now with some wiring harnesses and exhaust gubbins!
Really really neat, the shape is great! The rear wheels look like they use tatra suspensuion, something Lotuses never had ;) and outside it doesn't look mucn, but with the open doors and a tan interior this sure is a beauty!
Wait a minute. I thought all Lotuseseses were wonky to begin with. That makes this perfect in every way! Congratulations on a job well done. ;) Great body (the car that is.) Your rear end is spot on (the car again.) Excellent!
