Lego technic challenge 2012

I probably misunderstood something. The model is designed using the 9398 chassis, you can check the LXF file, it should be buildable from real bricks. Since there are some limitations given by the chassis, it is not perfect scale model of a real quad bike and some elements should be offset by 1 or 2 studs (like steering should be placed more backwards).

OK, I admit, that this one is not exactly policeman. Let's pretend, he has stolen the bike.
Rocka XL was built by Toa_Of_Justice.

It joins his 9398-based 4x4 Sharkwler (YouTube video and LDD .lxf file) -- vote for it here:

1) Lightened Body Shell (cut down the usage of parts)
2) Low CG (build as low as possible)
3) Single Driver Seat (full size "recaro" looking seat with leg room)
4) Seat base will secure existing battery case (secure by 2 pins)
5) Roll-cage style for protection (for strength)
6) The overall chassis are intact except for the missing wheel arc (original joints are intact)
7) Radio box has been shifted 3-4 holes down (reduce the height clearance)
I'm not done with the build as i'm lacking good lego parts to make it better. Will submit a revised version if possible.

This is my Latest model built for the "You Design it We Make it' Challenge, This model features, Opening Doors, Working headlights, Opening Hood, Opening Trunk, V8 engine (like real one), Grill plate and much more."
Too bad the challenge is full of bogus entries, like this "love child" offspring between a 9398 Crawler and Sheepo's Mini Cooper Mark I:

As I said in my Blog:
" This is my proposal for the competition, note that this is a serious proposal, even it is only a sketch made with Photoshop but the concept is clear, mix the 9398 chassis with ancient wooden truck bodywork made of modern Lego.
I think that this is the best way to make a special edition of the latest Lego toy, a tribute to the first toys made by the brand, with wide possibilities of interesting snot building techniques an decorated pieces, really from this idea can go a real collector's item!! "
Hope you like the concept, and my weird photoshop skills
Hope you it.

Gene3S Escape Truck (B-Model) - This is not a complete built
1) IR Beside Driver Seat
2) Light-Weight Style
3) Able to Carry Goods
a) PF Grabber/Crawl
b) Tilting Truck Cabin & Cargo Bed
I'm lacking of good technic parts & I'm exploring the gears and PF systems which is not an easy task. Hope to learn from all members & available creative instructions.

On the skidder I was less optimistic and did not used such complicated colors. I had some doubts about fitting into the target price range with all those parts.
With the quad bike I was even more conservative trying to keep target weight, size and the price range.
But Conchas with his amazing entry made me optimistic and more believing that new colors and even the complicated ones like chrome are possible within the target price range.
So I prepared a "civilian" version of the police quad bike with chrome parts used for the bumper/protection frame, handlebar and the footsteps and some "commercial" colors.
I think the people building motorbikes may find the chrome parts usefull and also protection cages for the offroads would looks quite well with them.
Chromed rims are obligatory for this version and usefull for the car builders.
I would like to hear you opinions about these colors and may be sugestions for others. If you find these versions usefull I will submit this probably as a one single separate entry to get a clear picture about what others want and also to give TLG possibility to reject it as not possible.
Thank you very much for your support and all the votes you gave me.
I would like to thank to JunkstyleGio who helped me again and prepared this two color version:
