This car grabbed my attention a few months ago so I decided to try to build it. The design parameters that I want to achieve include the following: Tough enough to withstand my kids playing with it. Simple enough for my kids to explore the functions Copy the rear triplex suspension set up of the Koenigsegg One:1 as closely as possible Replicate the front suspension set up Syncro dihedral door hinges!! Paddle shift gearbox A good approximation of the real car with the bodywork. Pictures below show WIP so far. I am happy with the front and rear suspension set ups, using the standard hubs does not allow for so much versatility in the build but at least the wheel stay on The gear box is 3 speed plus reverse. I decided on this compromise as I really wanted to try to build a paddle shift gearbox. The shift mechanism is complete, I just need to sort out the linkage to the paddle shifters and work out if this can be made sturdy enough to change the gears or whether the paddles will be purely aesthetic - i.e. they will move correctly when the gear is shifted but the actual lever that is pulled is located elsewhere The door hinges are done. I used actuators rather than sprung dampers as the actuators are much easier for kids to operate. The dampers need quite a lot of force to push in. I am starting to work on the body work, but don't expect a final model anytime too soon!!!! Rear Suspension Front Suspension
