Fast mech
About this creation
What do you get when you combine a light mech with a supersonic jet? The answer is this thing...
The caffeine rush is a mech built by Starbucks (just don't ask). It weighs 11 tons (feather-light for a mech of its size)and stands twelve meters tall. It is entirely built around the need to move over difficuly terrain realy fast. On ideal terrain, its top speed is 351 Km/h, on less then ideal terrain, it averages at around 298 Km/h, and on completely awful terrain it can average 125 Km/h. Its speed comes at a price though; it has no armour to speak of, its weapons are puny, and its manuverability is questionable at best. It's almost entirely used for reconasence puproses, althought there have been cases where it was used for hit-and-run assaults.

   It's wobbely as heck. Because of the hip design you need to take off the leg to adjust them. This makes ballencing it a real headache. The joints don't help much either.
On a completly unrelated note, the Caffeine rush looks best when viewed from the side.

   Image quality is questionable at best. I tried using Gimp to improve their quality, but that just made them grainy.

   The front is not this mechs best side.

   You can see various things intended to make this mech go faster in this shot. Note the open fussion plasma rocket, secondary moters, vacueum tank, and oversized spoiler.

   Some would put inappropriate comments to accompany this shot.
You might note the things on the underside of the spoiler. Those arn't more rockets, those are more camparable to the smoke things on airplane wings. Useful if you're trying to lay a trail.

   The pilot in his comfy chair. Fitting that chair in this mech was a pain.

   Repeat after me; you don't see the orange, you don't see the orange...
I actually spent several hours sorting my Lego collection in a vain attempt to find another black one, but as I said, it was in vain.

   That wheel thing is supposed to be a pully to give the lower leg more kick. It would appear that the rope peices are missing though, so just pretend they're there...

Enlarge image
   I tried to make the knee joint stiff, but I may have overdid it a tad. And they STILL wobble!

Enlarge image
   This mech has a nice rear...

Enlarge image
   Those arrows on the spoiler are for making it as clear as possible as to which way the mech is supposed to move. They have nothing to do with me running out of the unmarked tiles.

Enlarge image
   The Caffeine Rush has weapons, although I almost did't include them. They're a pair of autocannons that are usually used only as a last resort.

Enlarge image
   The belly of the beast. You can see how the autocannons fold down to lie flat with the belly. This is to cut air resistance.

Enlarge image
   An exploded view. In retrospect I should have removed the feet.

Enlarge image
   You'd think I based it off the sketch or something...

   Kitten! (Any spelling errors in this are probably curtosy of her using my forearms as a scratching post while I was typing)
