Hi everybody,

I'm new to Eurobricks, and I would like my first post to be my latest creation: a PF Remote controlled Sportscar which I've called "Little Devil"

Posted Image

It has:
  • Remote-controlled driving & steering
  • Detailed & working V10-engine
  • Working front & rear-lights
  • Opening Koenigsegg-style doors
  • Opening hoods
  • Very reliable drivetrain

I'm working on instructions at the moment.

Hope you like it.

Feel free to comment.

No, it doesn't have working suspension, but I included dummy shock-absorbers because they look cool. Suspension can be made in this scale, but I specifically chose not to include suspension so I could make lower ground-clearance and tighter mudguards, wich also looks cool. See my MOC-page for more explanation.

that's awesome, dude!  I wish I had the parts to build my own.  One question: what program did you use to make the animation of the drivetrain?

I made jpeg's with MLCad and put it together in Ulead Video.

Looks really great!
Wish I had your skills. I like the super low ride height, and the engine look impressive as well.

Very nice MOC. The design is interesting and well done. I like very much the fact that the car drives so well and that the drivetrain is reliable.
Good job!

This is really, really lovely.  It is a great example of just how smooth and accurate you can make a model look with Technic.  The fact that it is also completely functional is remarkable.  A beautiful model and a great piece of design work.

My favorite part is that you used the low profile wheels from 8428 that almost no one uses.

That's a fantastic model! :thumbup: I wish that LEGO would release an RC car very much like what you built, Jurgen Krooshoop!

Very nice model.   Good work on the low ground clearance and lack of gap between the wheels and fenders.   :thumbup:

Thank you Toa of Justice for noticing the bad link. I've editid the post, now it works correctly.

Yes, I like those wheel very much as well, I got them with my 8462-set. I'm playing with the idea of making a small series of different cars using these wheels.

But in the meantime, I'm working on an MLCad file of this model, so I can put instructions on my Brickshelf.

This is a very good looking model, no doubts about that - and the wheels help a lot, good choice!

I'm looking forward to see what else you'll come up with using those wheels :classic:

Wow!  What an expert job in creating the building instructions & parts list!  Thanks, Jurgen!  You're a mult-talented man (creating the car and the YouTube video's MUSIC too)!   :thumbup:

This car has all the features a Technic fan would want -- Power Functions driveability, lights, working engine and steering wheel.  This is easily the coolest Sportscar MOC I've seen, so I'm gathering needed parts to build it!    :classic:

Wow, now that was a great first post! :D

Very good playability, well made. It looks really well to! Personally I think the hood is a tad to flat, the three middle beams should be slightly tilted up in the back to give it some more curves.

Well done to get all that function in such a small and good looking package!
