This is what I had envisioned when I got the exclusive crawler set. I thought it would have been easier, just take the top off, and put it on a frame like this one.. nope, the quarter panels, doors, and both bumpers were built right into the frame, so with a "little" modification, I came up with this car.
Video here(iframes apperently dont work on mocpages...)
There was enough space to fit all the little functions that I wanted to. A working 4 speed transmission, with a "stress reducer" (see more detail here) I also included a steering motor, I would have put the servo, but the frame of the rock crawler is also being modified....
All together it has:
1 xl drive motor
1 m steering motor
2 m gear shifting motors
3 sets of lights
2 ir recievers
I personally think this car looks better with the smaller tires and frame.
I designed the car to be taken apart easily in order to work on it better. Open the doors, and the top can come off.
Thanks for looking! Keep an eye out for what happened to the frame of the crawler.
Wow! I agree with you on the looks of it. I have been waiting for someone to do this ever since the set came out! I like how it's kind of jacked up, giving it that vintage rally car look. I the suspension live axle or solid axle?
