The pilot is a female who's father used to race in the hover-car circuit
and always wanted her to follow in his foot-steps but she always was interested in mechs
and decided she wanted to run off and join the race mech circuit
(though she never got around to it).
When her father was mortaly wounded in a hover-car accident he gave his consent
and she became one of the most famous racers in the galaxy.
There, I did it I wrote back-ground fluff.
I got the idea from Giovanni Seynhaeve, and his race-mech Sunride I wasn't quite able to get away from the heavy mech design, oh well...
That large engine mounted on the bottom is what gives this big boy
the power it needs just to keep up with the competition.
This beast could not be called nimble,
but your gonna have a hard time of pushing it off the track.
Those spike like things are vertical stabalizers,
extra usefull for smooth landings off jumps.
These machineguns are loaded with armor peircing rounds for maximum damage.
Simple 3D view.
the foot has three little wheels under there they have to be changed
after every race for safty.
Just a cool silhouette shot.
Nate: Refer below.
Spilurus: I'm not sure what exactly mech racing does involve
but to me it seemed pretty well naked without some type of weapon.
Very nice. I remember when I first saw this. I was in awe. I just posted a MOC based on this. I hope you don't mind. Mine is not that great, but it's OK. The colors are great though! http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/174317

wow, i realy like this idea. with the wepons and the wings in the back. AND THE THREE WHEELS!!! i still wanna know how you did wheels like that. do they move at all? or just decoration?
Yes, the wheels spun pretty freely if I remember correctly.
Hello, this is Nowhere man from an up and coming lego mecha community right here on MOCpages called the FORGE (sort of like Mechahub, but you need an invitation) I and Phong Chang would like to extend an invitation to you to join the FORGE (yeah it's not the greatest name, sue me). Check it out, and if you're interested, please leave a comment on one of the MOCs on FORGE, so we can e-mail you the account info (password and e-mail address) so that you can log on and get started. Keep on building, Nowhereman
