Check out the ENORMOUS "Ratrod" on MOCPages: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/207502 .  I'm sure the Lego Pneumatics fans will love it!  There are 33 pictures total (some of which appear below).   :thumbup:  :thumbup:

From his "Ratrod in Progress" webpage http://mocpages.com/moc.php/204027 , there's a link to this YouTube video of the Ratrod in motion:  ! .  

The 5:43 video shows:

(1)  The pneumatic V-8 engine's speed being regulated by the lever in the center of the dashboard,
(2)  The chassis INDEPENDENTLY being lowered and raised, front-to-back, and left-to-right,
(3)  The big (non-Lego RC) rear tires being driven forwards and backwards (pneumatically) via the functional gearshift lever in the center console.    :oh:

Yes, the mighty LPE, LEGO Pneumatic Engine, very strong and tunable engines powered by external compressor.
