Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Wayne Aerospace's latest product: the Cave Racer! It's a high speed hovercraft with no cockpit. Of course, right after it's developement, the company's owner made a special edition of it for himself, turning it into...

The Batcave Racer!
(aka. the Bat-Caveracer) :wink:

This new addition to the Dark Knight's vehicles hovers thanks to a new technology that is hidden in it's wings.

Acceleration is done by the tuned version of a turbine engine similar to that of the Batmobile's.

Hang in there, Batman! :thumbup:

With this bad boy, the Bat hopes to catch even the fastest evil-doer on any terrain!

Here it is in Parking Mode... and apparently still running engine. :look:

Hey, watch out there, Batsy, you seem to be a little dizzy from the ride! :sick:  :tongue:

I hope you like it! :laugh: This is my first cave racer, and I have no clue when, where, or how the idea of the "cave racer" popped up (would be really nice if someone could fill me in there! :blush: ), but I like it! :grin: And with all those new cave racer MOCs turning up lately, I just had to make one too! So, being in the Batvehicle mocing mood I am in at the moment, I came up with this beauty! :blush: IMO, the best thing about it is its name! :tongue: I know, it doesn't look much like a bat; the overall design was inspired by the batwing, but even though it didn't turn out to look as bat-like as its inspiration, I do like this MOC a lot! :wub:

What do you think?

I like it, even if it isn't 'legal' by the set of rules that Tim Gould, aka. Gambort came up with for his flickr group. I'm pretty sure he doesn't mind other people building what they call cave-racers that don't follow his intentionally wacky set of criteria.

Funnily enough, the cave racer that I built a few weeks ago is also called the batcaveracer (although I spell it as one word) and AFAIK is 'legal' by Tim's standard. I later found out that I wasn't the first to come up with a cave-racer with a batman theme. Apparently it's an obvious choice.

A cool racer rocker indeed.... with a cool front part, a cool engine and very cool wings too. Hot Bat-ride on!  :grin:  :thumbup:

Interesting use of arches in the wings. You're right, it doesnt look much like a bat but still its a pretty good MOC.

Great work, considering Batman actually HAS a cave, I'd say this is very appropriate. Nice wing design too!

Way too big, but way too cool. I'm amazed by the technique, it looks like it could go fast and it's well built. Probably my favourite Cave Racer, but it's going to hit some walls on the turns!  :grin:
