It's blue, it's a car, and it's the most advanced I've ever built. Doesn't mean it all works, but it's still very advanced.
About this creation
Notice the car. Quite.
It's even got the JDM lights! Oh wait.... no it doesn't. :|
Behold! The many differing views!
It's even got some sides. They're mighty sturdy, too.
Don't believe me? Here's the side again.
And again! It's not goin' anywhere.
Also, it's got a rear. Complete with some taillamps.
I took many, many photos. So many in fact that the space-time continuum disintegrated. Took a fair bit of time to mend that.
I'm pretty sure this view is some sort of classic by now.
One more cheap shot.
Alright, enough jibbajabbaflibbaflabba. Let's get serious. *Puts on serious business expression*
The doors, boot, and bonnet all open as they should.
It's even got the hood holding stalk.
The trunk, which is totally sealed up for proper storage. Also note the gaping hole for access through the rear seat.*
&*I didn't actually build the rear seat. True track weapons don't have one.
Here's another picture of the trunk for your viewing pleasure.
And here's the working engine, coupled up to a 2 speed plus R,N,P gearbox.
And here it is again, but viewed on an angle. Dat angle.
No, I'm not holding it up. The rear bumper takes one for the team to get the all important money shot.
The sidewalls are just as capable. Now is a great time to point out all the working shizzle. Up front, I used the new Mixel ball joints to make some double pivot point steering geometry. Unfortunately, Lego made the Mixels' balls very, very frictiony. That's great for action figures, but awful for anything else. Even after adding some silicone lube, it's all too stiff. Neverthe less, I did put in ackermann, caster, and a steering rack that leads to two dead ends inside the chassis. At the back, there's a dif, some sort of weird trailing arm + link + antiroll bar setup. In between, there's more than enough chassis to prevent flexing.
We just couldn't spread that all out, could we? Nope. Better to bombard you with all that in one single caption. *Slow claps*
Note the saucy shifter. The seats also slide forward/up or back/down like a Citroen DS.
Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoyed that? Then maybe you'd like this! Check out my Volkswagen Golf on not-quite-Cuusoo. Every support is appreciated.
Loving this. I spotted the Mixel joints as soon as I saw the money shot and thought "how clever" and wondered if they would be a little too frictiony. Then I read your comment, shame really but still a very clever idea. However your most cleverest idea was to include sides ;), what ever next - wheels I suppose. Love the engine too.
Lol, I own one of these in real life except it's the hardtop variant but my dad and I have like three other ones of these..
I think the only problem with this car is it seems to wide, if you skinnied it up a bit then it would look real nice. Other then that it's really good, i'm surprised someone actually built one of these! Now you have to make a drift variant naw pls, lol.
