Big Technic Formula 1 Car
And it's not red ...
About this creation
I like this .. It's more of a big model than a working technic machine, although it does have a V8 engine, made using old square pistons, a 3 speed gearbox behind the rear axle and steering. So many Lego F1 creations are great, but they're nearly all red so I thought I'd make a blue one. It isn't any particular car but it is based loosely on 2009 regs. The front wing and engine cover are easily removable and it's HUGE !

Excellent and massive! Using the extreme wets i see ;) You should add this to my group...F1 Cars, i'll invite you :)BTW Make sure you get card you can bend without it creasing. Don't fold it curve it so it covers the tiles and worktop. I'd suggest to get two or 3 considering how masively massive your collection and models are. I don't know why i'm giving you advice, you're the enemy ;) Can't wait but am also bricking it lol p.s. when are they retrieving your photos? Lots missing :(

Ah! Bingo. Thanks so much Nick. The toothed toggles you pointed out were the missing link in my understanding. They are now on my bricklink wanted list.

Quoting Tom Simon Do you ever use these parts for real functional uses in your custom designs?
All the time. The toothed toggles they engage with are designed to hold pins without these bushes or axles with them. They allow you to firmly attach pieces at angles of 22.5 / 45 degrees - if you look at the handlebars and brake levers of Vezon's Ride, you'll see they are 22.5 degrees apart and they stay that way thanks to these beauties.

I see. Sadly, set 8848 instructions are not available on the Lego site. But are the teeth really doing any holding, or is an axle passing through both doing most of the work. In all the instructions I could find, the teeth are either not engaged with anything, or they are engaged with a counterpart on the same axle, meaning again that it's just for visuals. Do you ever use these parts for real functional uses in your custom designs?

Quoting Tom Simon Some people may not recognize what this is without the red coloring. Hey Nick, how are you? I'm trying to figure out if the Technic Bush 1/2 Toothed http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=4265b has any functional uses other than a normal bush. I've downloaded several instructions for sets that use them, and in each case, the teeth are only used decoratively. Have you seen otherwise? thanks
Hi Tom. Well, the teeth engage with the teeth on the toothed toggle connector to lock it in place - it's used for this purpose on the tilting mechanism for the front bucket of the 8848 truck although this job was done by newer pieces on more recent sets - I hope that answers your question. Happy New Year!

A very precised model of the finest precision instrument known to mankind.I like the use of those old style LEGO tires, because they're flexible enough for width customization.

Quoting Nelis H. Very cool! Is that 1,5 tyres on the front?
Yes. 1 is too narrow and 2 was two wide. I didn't like to slice an old tyre in two but it was the only way !

Nice shape, great design, nice to see somebody who likes to make a proper body for their technic cars as opposed to using just technic pieces (which gives a horrible 'empty frame' look...

Very cool shape which to me looks even better for the fact it's made from basic bricks - I agree this technique is harder than using the new style pieces! Great work 5/5
