Many, including myself, are amazed at the unveiling of a life-sized Lego car that actually holds passengers and drives. Here is a link if you have not heard of this fantastic news. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ObE4_nMCjE
Many are wondering how this can be a achieved. Here is a video showing, on a small scale how this is achieved. Here is a portion of a super car that I am building, powered by a pneumatic engine. This particular engine is by LPE power. I have built my own, but they do not run as well as the master, Alex, over at LPE power.
As can be seen in the video, I used compressed air to run the engine. Several linked empty soda bottles do the trick just fine. Linking them is easy. If you have questions on how to do this, please leave comments and I will respond.
Yea.. the tires are the tires from set 42000. At 52 grams each, it takes quite a bit of torque to move 'em. But if you check out LPE's page, lpepower.com, you can see that the inline 3 engine moves a 4,000 piece plus car just fine.
