Want to make simple Lego cars that can be raced against each other? :grin: On his Brickshelf folder http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=361329 , "Sheepo" has posted an impressive collection of Lego Technic RC cars. Using various combination of Medium and XL Power Functions (PF) motors, he has raced these in the HispaLUG competition:

Interesting creations (especially since I'm working on small RC-cars as well). The return-to-centre mechanism is something I definately must to try. Now what they need is a nice body around them.
