An ominous dragster with huge rear wheels and powerful V8. Ready to commence the rake stance dance.
About this creation
A mixture of a hot rod and dragster. With powerful, naturally-aspirated V8, massive rear wheels, huge dragster spoiler and neatly packed parachute, this monstrosity is ready for taking on the strip or salt flats.
► V8 engine with moving pistons
► twin carb adorned with velocity stacks + hood tach
► radiator + cooling system + front lights
► ribbed headers and dragster-style Zoomie exhausts
► transmission w/o differential
► steering connected to HOG
► cockpit with a (non-functioning) steering wheel, dashboard and gear shifter
► adjustable "stance"
► wheelie bar (adjusted with stance) & fake packed stopping parachute
► namesake "Lightning Rods" in the back of cockpit for decorative purposes
For when you go really fast and need to stop even faster.
Rolling chassis lattice.
Reinforced structure for those sudden and hard front axle landings.
Finally, I got myself to build a 42050 C-Model out of the second set I bought purely because I liked the A-Model too much to tear it apart. Had some general ideas, but couldn't decide between a Hot Rod and Dragster, so I built both in one package. The hidden function of "adjusting the stance" is purely for the looks and, if exaggerated, makes the car, uh, "un-dragable", but some moderate amounts of adjustment make for nice change of style.
