As said on flickr; love the gastanks at the back and wheels. What tires are they btw? Though you might want to look into raising that airscoop a little bit and introducing that 'turbo-belt' (dunnow what it's called). Anyway awesome build.
Thanks a lot _zenn. Lego Guy Bri is right concerning the tires. I used two pairs of pliers to turn them inside out - by hand it is quite difficult. Airscoop and blower see below.

Awesome 6W version of Max's car ER0L! I liked Dr.Nightmare's 8W version, but this is more of my kind of size! I love the look of a giant blower sticking out the hood
Thanks a lot Lego Guy Bri. Very glad you like it. You are right concerning the tires. (It's width is 7w.) Blower see below.

AWESOME Road Warrior car 'ER0L'.
'-zenn' is right, pity about the blower drive belt.
Many thanks lightningtiger. The blower seems to be something essential, I underestimated that
There was a version with a blower before, but it wasn't satisfied with it. Now I have tried something different (see below).

Lovely! You've got some interesting angles there, and it looks just as menacing as it should :)
Thanks a lot L@go! I think it is quite difficult to build a car that is lovely and menacing at the same time, so I am very glad you like it!

Once again, you've done a excellent job! I
the shape and the spare tyre is a nice touch! One thing I would suggest though is to add a grille above the side exhausts:
Many thanks Liam! Concerning the grille I have tried something (see below).

Wonderful job! You nailed the shape, and I love the tires!
Thanks a lot Pencil_42. Glad you like it. Turning the tires inside out is not my idea. Don't know where I have seen that first. Sven Jagdmann does it like this on his Storm Chaser Doppler

Awesome! This is my favorite car of yours. I just love it. The details are all perfect. The exhaust on the side is a nice touch. Your 4437 wheel MOD is brilliant! And great looking to boot.
Thanks a lot Legocrazy81! Glad you like it best. Very glad you like the wheel, too. It's quite an issue to get nice wheels. I think they are very important for the overall look of a car - it's an aspect I have neglected for a long time.

Another one! I made mine back in 2007...
...and it's cool to see the other three you linked too. Looking at yours I think you've done a wonderful job using all the newer parts and it's probably the best version yet.
I should make a topic summarising all these MOCs.
Great interceptor Sinner! Concerning the gas tanks we seemed to have quite the same idea.
Very glad you like my version. Yeah, I think you can recognize a kind of evolution depending on the parts available. The new mudguards for instance have quite a nice touch - their shape is much more dynamic than the rather severe known ones. There are quite a few possibilities in them, I think.
Many thanks all for commenting and looking!
Now a new photo with a blower and a side grille. You decide which one is better.
