Found this on Klocki today. It's built by Ingmar Spijkhoven, and, well, it's just staggeringly, mind-bogglingly, awesomely awesome. Rubber-axle-joiner suspension, ackerman-steering, motorised with remote control, etc. Just take a look for yourselves:

And it's got a trailer of equal quality to go with it:

Not my type of thing, but very fascinating and a great job, Ingmar.  :thumbup:

That looks beautiful, and it has the functionality to match as well. It's especially interesting how he used u-joints in the middle to move the steering geartrain up, instead of gears. All the chrome silver pieces give it a great finish too.

The only thing is that the front would have been better with an actual windshield. The thin bars used at an angle like that look pretty flimsy.

I didn't think it was Lego until I looked at the bigger pictures...

Still Mutilating Clones or making them better.  I dunno maybe you should ask them yourself?

It got fantastic looks. He over-did the exhaust pipes though, they are way too long, guess he had too many chrome technic extenders.
