Driver's cab would look better with an additional pillar located centrally in place of the windshield.

I wonder if the UCS 1989 batmobile windscreen (56074pb01) could be used to make a MOC (or a MOC-ery :P) of this set?

Well, I guess ill be trying that in LDCAD in a few hours but with the original body work first

From Brickset:

"The real-life 4-wheel drive hypercar’s electric powered 7 speed transmission has been replicated in precise scale in this new model"

I didn't think the car would have a transmission, I guess this makes price a bit more palitable? On the other hand, adds to cost, undoubtedly will be over complicated, and will be harder to play with, as lots of friction/clicking

At the exact frame at 0:39 min in the video you can see the same blue shock absorber they used in the front. It us push rod, but i think the LBG 5l beams and 2x3x1 curved panels seem to simulate pull rod?

Front diff seems to only drive the "electric motor"...

First vehicle with 2 diffs which aren't connected?

Same 12 stickers for the tail lights is ridiculous!

Maybe it's just me, but when I looked at this pic (quoted intentionally) I thought it looked more than okay

I agree with you, R0sch is just being dramatic imo.

Considering the constraints of Technic panels I think the designer's done a very reasonable job of recreating the proportions of the real thing, which looks goofy as hell anyway.

There's no stylistic choices anywhere nearly as egregious as in the previous 1:10 cars, for example the 911 RSR's entire front end and tiny wheels.

I already heard 3x5 doublecross beam will come in future set. I don't know what set will be but I think this is that set.

That part looks useful and I welcome it, but I'm still waiting for that elusive 4L pin that even Chinese brands have adopted.

Agree. Normally they will print a part if the set contains more than one needed.

liking the new recolors and the 3x5 flip flop beams

EDIT: nope, the 1989 batmobile windscreen does not look right when I made a mocup in LDCAD :|I guess we will just have to have no windscrwindscrwindscreen.

Are the wheels, tires, and wheel arches the same as on the 42154 ford gt?

ah thanks. seems to be a new guy in Technic

 

Since June 2019 according to his LinkedIn, and apparently a few months in 2015. From what I’ve read he designed some of the Monster Jam trucks.

He's been working at TLG for a while now. He designs the Monster Jam trucks and also designed the Volvo polybag loader.

I wonder if it is the same Kasper Hansen that did a 1:8 scale Audi R8 as a C model to the 42056 some years ago. He teased it and mentioned doing instructions but unfortunately they where never published - probably not completed. I actually got an additional 42056 just for doing that C model and it's been waiting on the shelf ever since.

Just watched the videos available on YouTube. Good to see front and rear suspension and think for a Technic model it’s a pretty good version of a modern Le Mans car at this scale. Not sure if I’ll buy it though at least not until I find it discounted and then it can go next to the McLaren F1 car

Are there enough new panels in dark bluish gray to build a big 1:8 scale MOC or no? There’s a car that I wanted to build that would look perfect in this color.

Exactly what I thought. Also, I think it could look better if the roof was 1 stud shorter, the curvature would be better placed. But with these parts it cannot be done I guess, those new curved corner pieces are just too big there.

I really like the little front fake electric motor.

No, the arches are the ones from Batmobile 42127, and the wheels/tires are the same as the rears on 42127.
