[PORSCHE] 1973 Porsche 911 Custom Widebody Racecar

Recommended Posts

As soon as the Porsche contest began, I knew Dug and I would be in this contest. It began with a trip to his work where he was fixing a 1973 Porsche. It was on a hoist and he was explaining how the rear suspension with the torsion bars work. I didn't think it was possible, but we found a way to create torsion bars for the front and rear suspension. 75 studs long x 31 wide x 21 high. This is the first car we have created to scale. This creation comes with Hidden battery, motors wiring tucked, 1:7 scale, trailing arm, torsion bar rear suspension, realistic interior, wide body, 1973 Porsche RS custom race inspired body, spare tire and vn in original location, working fan on motor, 2xl for drive, 1 servo for steering.

Realistic Suspension with torsion bars. Very effective, and only required the use of 1 shock per wheel

This is a beauty! I like the use of the panels, clean and not to messy! I think the car is well replicated! But one thing, I think the flex axles at the fenders would look awesome in orange too. With the black it looks absolutely cool, but I missed the "bumb" in the fenders. I think if you change it to orange, that would be fixed. On the other hand, the black looks awesome, and adds some wellneeded contrast!

Btw, why dont I have a friend with a garage full of porsches?!

Oh how I wish I had enough orange to do the flare in Orange as well, getting down to it we were getting really low on parts. (I've only been in the technic game since January this year so I still have a lot of stocking up to do) as for the garage full of Porsche's, pretty cool right, I happen to work on them for a living and was lucky enough to snap some pics :)

I think this is your best supercar yet :thumbup: . However, I do think that the model looks a little thin. I think the model should be a little wider

Thanks Rishab, but actually the model is just slightly wider than it should be for the proper scale.

1973 Porsche 911 cars were much narrower back in the day...
