Hi to all,

I haven't posted anything new here for a while. It was started as a model team style hot-rod but I don't have any crome parts except this 4 wheel so there is! My main goal was make lowest steer-able vehicle. Ground clearence is about 1 plate/half liftarm. So pictures,

I would say it's more for Scale Models forum but the rat rod really amazing! I love the engine design with glasses. Makes me thing about some relations to bootleggers :wink:

Very nice Model, I love how nasty low it is, and the suicide doors :thumbup:

Good job for at least cramming in the HoG steering in there, if no other functions. I would redomment fixing the HoG on the engine with a 3L axle with stud instead of the 4L axle with stop you are using now, that way could skip the connector between the engine and the gear. It would look even more like a carburator that way :wink:

Ony one question: what is that green bottle on the right side of the engine supposed to be?

Thx for posting :classic:

It's not modeled any real car and I dont even know what is the scale so i think it suits better here. There is not relationship with bootleggers :pir-grin:

Thanks, i am glad you like it. 4L axle is necessary because total axle lenght is 6L. I understand your point. Double bevel gear looks bad without 2x2 round tile. 3L with stop is short and "collar" around stud doesnt allow "flush sit" on gear. I will make instructions, you will see what i mean. Bottle works like an oil stick on cars. If the bottle is empty you have to add oil :laugh:

Really nice rat rod! I still plan on building a Technic rod one day, I will surely look at this for inspiration when I start! Also, cool detail adding that 'watch your step' genuine Lego sticker:thumbup: And do I spot a wheel hub cover as steering wheel inside?

In one word... cool
I like hotrods, also ratrods and stuff and this one looks great. Like the whole model and also those 'weird' use of stuff for oilfilters and that kind of things, you see often in real-life.
the Back is cool too with that crane and all those chains.
Nice thinking of the steeringwheel too.
