I present you another motorized and remotely controlled hot rod – Black coupe
About this creation
Video description and outside driving:



Dimensions: 41 studs long, 19 studs wide, 13 – 14.5 studs high and weighs 804 g
PF components: 1 L motor - driving, 1 M motor - steering, 1 8878 battery, 1 IR receiver

As you all know, with motorized creations, it is always a challenge to place PF parts so they don't influence overall appearance of a model. In my previous hot rods, I used place under the false engine to put PF motors and as a result, false engine had to be higher than in a real car. That was a little bit frustrating but I didn't see any other option.
Hot rod - Black coupe

So with this hot rod, I wanted to avoid that situation at any cost. Some compromise had to be made so I decided to use just one L motor for driving (accepting the fact that it won’t be very fast) and to put it under driver’s seat. M motor for steering is placed next to it, under the passenger’s seat. As a result, smaller custom made V8 engine is placed lower on the chassis - right where it would be in a real model.

Other functions:

Working suspension - I wasn’t 100% satisfied with the suspension on my previous hot rods (they worked but weren’t realistic enough) so I really wanted to make improvement in that area. Development of the front solid axle and rear live axle, leaf spring suspension (with all the links and dumpers) was most important and most challenging part of this model. I’m very pleased with the end result:

Front: solid axle, leaf spring
Hot rod - Black coupe

Rear: Height-adjustable, live axle, leaf spring
Hot rod - Black coupe

Black coupe - rear suspension mechanism

Working steering wheel – drag link steering
Hot rod - Black coupe

Working pistons, radiator fan and generator - custom made fake v8 engine
Hot rod - Black coupe

Retractable rear license plate:

Black coupe - rectractable license plate

controlled with a fake handbrake lever inside the cabin
Black coupe - license plate mechanism

Hot rod - Black coupe


Working door handles – openable suicide doors
Hot rod - Black coupe

Trunk door can be opened – behind it is a mechanism for adjustment of rear height of the vehicle (manually controlled gear) and battery (easy to turn on/off and charging)
Roof can be removed easily

Quoting Nerds forprez Love you models. Always have. This one is no different. The string placement for the effects on the engine are perfect. Having recently submitted a MOC with stringworwell, I know how difficult this can be.
Thank you very much! Yeah, those strings makes the engine more realistic - I'm glad you like it :)

Quoting Wormy McWorm I agree with sam the first, you do indeed make some of the best rods that I've ever seen and you most certainly do make the best technic rod that I've seen. An amazing build that makes me a little envious...
Wow, man, thanks! :) Coming from a person who also have picture of a "rod" as an avatar (you and Ape are the only two that I know) really means a lot.
