Ngoc Nguyen posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingFrom promobricks.de: All Formula 1 fans can look forward to a new car in March. This consists of 1431 parts and should cost 179.99 euros. It is not yet known which racing team the car comes from. It seems most likely to us that LEGO will enter into a partnership with the current all-time favorite Mercedes or the no less legendary Ferrari. Due to the release date, however, it should be certain that the bolide will be based on the design of the coming 2022 season. Set number: 42141 Number of parts: 1431 Release date: March 01, 2022 Recommended age: 18+ RRP: 179.99 euros

I know it’s a bit early But while we wait for the set to be released… I don’t like the cylinder parts much anymore, so I intend to modify the engine. Judging from the photos we’ve seen, the engine is connected through the two connector blocks and apparently nowhere else. I’ve tried to make a new engine of the same size but of the kind I prefer, and with an attempt at a fake split turbo. Assuming there is a bit of space above where one connector block would be, the spinning ‘compressor wheel’ would be visible from the slot in the bodywork. Depending on the clearance beneath the engine, there’s a geared solution that would make the ‘compressor’ spin faster, and a rubber band solution that takes up less space. How bad it it? Suggestions?
