Nice teaser, doesnt really tell us anything new from what i can see, but for that price and part count im at least interested.

 

I wonder if it will have a B-model, i like 42093s B-model more then the A-model.

 

Also makes me wonder when we will see oficial pics and info released, originally Sariel was to post a review of this set tomorrow, but i understand that has been delayed.

Yes, so the question is, if the release is delayed, then official presentation is also delayed?

Where's the engine placed in the real car? Is the engine in the front or in the back? According to the leak picture, there doesn't seem to be any place for it in the front or under the hood.

If the engine's in the back and the differential's in the back then there's no need for the drive axle that long. I think the axle is a 6L. Together with the two 2L connectors on both ends and the 20z gear and a frame, the length of the drive train is 10L. The endpoint of that axle will be between the two seats already.

@keymaker Sariel commented that the NDA on the senna has been shifted to Jan 1st, whether this impacts lego's publishing of pics, i dont know.

@Ngoc Nguyen The real car is mid-engined, the driveshaft did indeed strike me as quite long considering the place of the engine related to the rear axle, the only way i see a long driveshaft is if the rear diff is driven from behind, with the driveshaft going over the rear diff, so that the engine crank sits higher up in the car.

Since there is no space below due to 43.2 tires, it is possible that diff is driven from behind...and through idler gear for steering goes this axle ...

But looking at leaked pictures steering axle from HOG goes just behind seats in front of engine, so it is a bit mysterious...at there is a kind if suspension?

Perhaps axle is not that long at all, just illusion made by video?

Maybe it starts in front of engine, and is there connected with gears to engine crankshaft, then goes to differential under the engine

Maybe that was just HOG steering axle?

Agreed. I think it might be the steering axle.

I've seen a leaked image (as I'm sure we all have) and I wasn't thrilled by this one. Too many stickers, bodywork too complex for the scale.

Still, blue small mudguards should make it at least a little bit useful as a parts donor and we can hope for decent C-models and motorizations as with the Corvette.

Honestly, I think it's a fantastic set! For such a small scale I think the shape has been captured excellent!

The only thing I say is: We can't see anything. But I'm kinda looking forward to the set.

Has there ever been a teaser for a 50€ set? That makes me expect the worst and hope for the best.

50EUR... probably means it'll be $80AUD here. I don't mind the way it looks, but damn that's a bit of a big ask

There are some differences between the box model and the preliminary model:

- The HOG steering on the roof is no longer there.
- The LBG section that has the Richard Mille sticker is built with the new middle section of 21 and 22 panel, but in the real model that part is built with system part.
- The section in front of the front mudguards is LBG in the prelim model, but blue in the box model
- The part behind the roof is built with system part in the prelim model, but with Technic part in the box model.

I think steering gear is removed on the box for better look. In fact, it is easy removable on the model

Official images are on Facebook now and I've noticed the same things: the new micro panel in LBG is replaced by system bricks, but it looks there is still one in black on the back of the roof air  intake.

The Hog is on the roof as well, I think it can be removed as suggested by @rm8

It has scissor doors. 

Another difference between the prelim model and the final one is that in the prelim model, the LBG small panel on the hood is connected to one 4L liftarm, and then one 3L liftarm, while in the final model they are connected to two 3L liftarms.

Originaly build with conectors it is now fully based on flex axle

Rear blue soft axle is 11 or 12. Roof pillar black axle is 14 or 16.

 

Look at the right rear wheel. It is connected with brown axle. All brown axles are with stop. In the model stop end is inside, and you can't insert such axle in differential. So....model is driven only rear left wheel. It is 4x1 ultimate track car without differential.

Enjoy the technic, authenticity. Build for real

:pir-bawling:

I was just thinking it looked like they improved it in the shaping, then that.
