Howdy Folks,

This is a very inspiring forum, I hope I can inspire others as well!

I came back to legos after 20 years with a gift from my kids, the 8048 buggy. This Midget Sprint Car MOC is from that set alone:

Build sequence is here: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=514439

Also on Rebrickable: http://rebrickable.com/sets/erix/sprint-car

I've since got more sets, the 8051 bike being a favorite. This is a custom Bobber Hardtail:

Love the sprint car! I used to go to a dirt race track as a kid and the Sprints were always my favorite. Great job!

Thanks for the kind welcome!

Here is a take on the Monster Garage 3-wheeler they made with a giant 6 cylinder diesel engine and little else.

No build sequence but pretty simple.

Next a 60's style "digger" dragster powered by an air-cooled VW engine. Again, this one is made with only the 4048 parts:

Last is a V8-powered version of the Sprint Car wirh big wings like a World of Outlaws style car:

Nice, MOCs out of a single set are very hard to make and you did a great job

Good work but i think the cab on the dragster is falling off the end of the chassis.

Yeah that cabin is too much to the back, it sould be in front of the rear wheels.

Really cool models erix! I particulary like the last one :thumbup:

Back in the 60's and 70's they had dragsters like that (as erix mentioned in his post)

Samanen, that's a cool photo. I forgot about all the wacky multi-engined contraptions those early racers thought up!

Better start a new digger build, crank-driven superchargers anyone?

I love the midget race car. Especially the angles of the panels are ingenious.

I hope your son will give you more sets so that you can make some bigger models :classic:

Thanks Jeroen! That car came together over only a few days and I've always liked the way the panels tuck in right alongside the motor.

Yes, I'm hoping he sees my obsessive research of the Unimog set as a sign! Alrhough I could really use those big tires and wheels right now...
