The set 8445 (Indy Storm) is a beautiful race car, it was the last studded set before lego technic goes studless.

I start with the steering system
It was the most difficult part to replicate due to its size.

@Thirdwigg Thank you. The set is a small set & suit with my building style.

@fosamax I have try to upload a photo, but only allow for small size.
I'll try to link to my flickr account. Thank you.

eurobricks is not intended to store pics (that is in forum general rules, in fact). I recommend bricksafe.com

@Scoar Sonander No, Same as the original steering system found in the set 8845.
I recreate it with new Technic parts, it has the same turning angle.

It is just hard to fit in that height and width something different in studless build. With studded it is easyer in fact. I'm also now struggling with 8440

@Jurss The steering system is the most challenging section to recreate with the new technic parts, my first picture is still the prototype & it already fully replicate the studded one.(3 stud height)
I have do a little modification for the mounting of the surrounding parts.

Progress 1b

I just try to mount the driving axle for the steering system.
To mount this module, I'm planning to replace the axle with a longer one.

Front section

The front section already done, the steering system mounted at the same condition as the original set.
The steering works perfectly as the original set.
I didn't have yellow panels, so I decided to build my entry in white.
 

Engine

The engine mounting is rebuild same as the original one but in studless.

Chasis/Frame (Side View)

Studded frame in half (top) & the new studless version on bottom.
Every position is replicated carefully, the gear box has to be modified due to the new mounting & gears. (but it still has the same position as the original)

[TC20] Indy Storm

The Indy Storm has already done in white, I'm not sure if this can be submitted.
@Jim : can this qualified as an entry ?

What do you mean by "has already been done"? Each entry in the contest should be a new entry, not published before. But if someone else has done a similar MOC it's okay. Maybe not the best choice, also since the original is yellow. But that's up to you.

Interesting choice... I wasn't even aware this part exists

This is the only one replacement for the pneumatic.

This doesn't happen often, but I think this build would really benefit from stickers! Easier said than done of course...

Thank you for your suggestion, but unfortunately I'm not the sticker fan. I keep my build clean & I only do color combo when it is possible.
