At our meeting we have PF vehicle races, and for the last one I built two. This seemed like a good way to show them to the world.

What fun!  Making small Power Functions vehicles can allow for fender-to-fender, bump-and-go racing!  Do any of the vehicles ue te #8183 Track Turbo RC or #8184 Lego Racers RC platforms ( http://www.bricklink....asp?P=bb396c01 )?

I like the picture of your car in front of your city skyline at sunset.  What city are we seeing?

Nope. I tend not to use the standard RC chassis, as it's very slow and underpowered. In my Flickr Photostream there are many pictures of PF frames. Here are some:

The magnificent city of Rotterdam. It looks quite nice - from a distance. :classic:

By the way, I would also like to thank the moderator (I suppose) who embedded the youtube video. Thanks!

Haha, nice video! Love the flip and the skid-parking! Those cars look like a lot of fun!

Did "The Chase" vehicles use the "Basic 2-axle Chassis Instructions" from the Hard Truck Contest website http://www.doublebrick.com/htc ?  (NOTE:  You'll have to scroll down to the bottom of that webpage to see the instruction link in the bottom-center of that web page).  If your designs are a bit different that the truck chassis design, do you have some instructions for young people to build their own Power Functions racing cars?

Nope, I prefer to build my own chassis. I've linked to a couple in this post. Most of these have enough pictures to figure out what's going on and build your own. I'm still planning to make instructions for a new one, but I'd have to use only basic elements so everyone would be able to build it.

However, making instructions is a long and tedious process, and most of the time I'd rather spend my limited time building new stuff.
