Hot Black

January 6th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Another HotRod-like car. Features V12 piston engine, remote drive and steering, and remotely folded roof.

Datasheet:

Completion date: 16/06/2008
Power: electric (Power Functions)
Dimensions:  length 51 studs / width 20 studs / height 18 studs
Weight: 1.7 kg
Suspension: none
Motors: 3 x PF Medium

This is somewhat strange construction. It resulted probably from the feeling that my HotRed has been underestimated, so I decided to create a version with the body built from regular bricks and more focus on aesthetics than on the functionality. The functionality has been actually severely crippled, as this car has not only the gearbox, but even the suspension and the functional steering wheel removed – quite a rarity among my cars. Except for drive and steering, the vehicle was fitted with a simple folded roof, controlled by the third motor. It has been ugly in my opinion, and had little relation to the real HotRods. However, the effort I put into building its bonnet resulted in an experience that was very useful at my later models of American trucks.
