  1. Hello, May be only youngest readers don't know this car from middle of 80's. Some sources tell that Toyota Sprinter Trueno/Corolla Levin AE86 is the first drifting car, thanks to Keiichi Tsuchiya. And Initial D is world known japanese animation film about drifters (I have never watch it). That's a small model with small 37 mm wheels from 42048 cart racer was built for indoor fun. Because Buggy motors are too fast for small indoor cars, i decided to build this one with L motor - optimal for small models torque/speed. I also added LED just for the video. Car is so simple, so I decided to be more creative in video presenation, than in model itself. Scale is small, so it does not look realistic in terms of proportions and forms - too squared. As I said, it is driven by one L motor with gearing: 36-12 and then 14-14 with old style differential. Steering motor is Servo. Control thru Smart Brick. And Fuel by small LiPo block. Car can also work with IR receiver with the same performance. Model is decorated by self made stickers. There is also modification of Sbrick. I joined black down and white top + added Trueno and Initial D stickers. just for fun with little a hope of small boost in performance. But that was useless. There is a place only for one seat. And LEGO Belville male doll take driver's position. To say the truth, model was built for my son, because he can't handle Buggy motor powered models. And I planned this model fast from the start. I also have 2 beta versions of this car. One is with one RC buggy motor. You can see how it performs in my Buwizz Prototype 2 video year ago. And one more body using large 43 mm wheels instead 37 to reach faster speed with....2x RC buggy motors. But this is just a sketch. Larger wheels need rework of body for larger arches and complex steering system to save front arches from hypersizing. More photos https://vk.com/album177639081_246152710 p.s. Interesting fact. My first car in 2005 was Toyota Corolla Levin/Sprinter Trueno. Unfortuntely this was a modern AE111 version (2000) with front wheel drive. In fact 1.6L engined corolla chassis under the 2-door "sport" exterior. Most of all I loved it's doors without frames, like in "big" premium coupe cars:)
