Technic Buggy
A sort of mutated 854 go-kart with suspension.
About this creation

I made this for the 'For the Love of Cars' competition as a second entry in the medium cars technic category. It's body is ten studs wide (+wheels) and it features proper working suspension at both ends, working steering and a single cylinder engine driven at great speed by the rear diff.



It's a simple little thing but I like it. Reminds me of the classic 854 go-kart kit from the '70s.



Proportions make a little more sense with suspension on full bump.



And it has very pleasing oversteery handling characteristics on the kitchen floor :)

854 was my first ever Technic set. This is a brilliant re-imagining and brings back so many memories. Thank you.

I'm loving this. My cousin had the Go Kart set and I can see its DNA in this MOC.

Simple, functional, and smart looking, no clutter whatsoever. None of the Technic models of the period of the parts used here managed to do all of the things your Buggy here does on this small a scale, at all, let alone as well as this.

Thanks Glenn. I will make a Gordon Keeble in the future (lovely car..) but right now I'm doing a big technic Citroen DS - a project I've wanted to do for a while.

I must admit - all your creations are built in classic LEGO style, but.. they all have something.. something special, something that makes them look modern at the same time. So does this creation too - it's beautiful! This is your style and I think noone can represent it, but you.

P.S I think my Buggy might be your buggy's grandson - weirdly similar but two Lego generations apart!

Looks very much like an early '80s set - I missed out on these style Technic models (due to not being born) but it's awesome to see models still being made how LEGO used to make them : ) It's a bit clunky in places but I'd happily race this round my kitchen floor too! 4/5 : )

Very cute, and your usual set of rich features, in a simple package. This would be a great technic tutorial for budding lego builders.
