68 cm long  and 32 cm wide model inspired by the racing vehicles from Star Wars:EP 1. With opening canopy, joysticks controlling the cables holding the engines, opening mouth revealing a laser cannon operated by a lever in the cockpit and retractable landing gear resembling claws. 17 wheels used in total.

"Errhhh, Watto like it!"  Posted Image    :tongue:    The use of wheels as the engine pods is different from what most folks would think for this month's Technic Challenge.

Thats a really creative way to use wheels, but are they considered wheels or just rims is another question.

Thank you all.
It is just inspired by Star Wars Podracers, but the thing you can see is just my imagination coming true through my hands.

Good point. I hope for the first option.  :pir-sceptic:

Great work, love it!  I have to say one of my favorite parts is how you did the energy binder.

At first I thought: "where are the wheels ?", but then I saw that they were used in an unusual, but very cool, creative and original way. Very nice model !!! (Off-topic) By the way, your Harrier (which hasn't been posted here yet) is also very very beautiful !
