Quoting jono mckinlay That is one wicked ride. Will you do instructions for it?
Thank you! :) I don't know, to be honest you are the first person who has shown interest for the instructions. Unfortunately I'm not experienced enough in making instructions and I am afraid that it would take me too much time to make them. I will let you know if I decide to make the instructions. :)

Quoting Hot Rod Really nice dude! The only thing I'm kind of disliking is the front axle, but I guess you don't have many other solutions for a RC... ; ) Otherwise, you've been blogged, a second time!!! ;) http://thelegocarblog.com/2014/11/30/fire-bucket/ Congrats!!! : )
:) Thanks mate! I agree, it would be more realistic with live front axle... I'll try it on one of my next projects :)

Quoting Martin H. Awesome build, but I can't understand, why it has eight spark plugs and six exhausts? :D But it is just detail ;)
Thanks :) middle exhaust is for two middle cylinders - it is characteristic for flathead V8 engines. I was looking these engine images for inspiration: http://www.myrideisme.com/Blog/13-of-the-best-hot-rod-engines-at-la-roadster-show/
