After a long time of technic experiments, I've decided to join up all my new knowledge into one "decent" MOC. And as a result, for the 1st time, everything works!
And yes, I'm hoping to make a body ASAP. EDIT: Finally, I've decided not to make a body. The reason is, that I'm making another, much better chassis. And after that, I'm making a true Supercar with all the specific parts, and this one will be a serious project. Hope I'll make it for Christmas.
About this creation
As you can see, it's only a single-seater, due to the "clutch spring" occupying the passenger's seat. Let's have a look at the functions.
- A full independent suspension made with no special parts!
- Working steering wheel.
- A 3-gear-linear-gearbox with a kind of clutch
- Working V10 via gearbox of course!
The back, with 4 well-needed exhausts.
This is how it looks from upside.
The front, showing front suspension and steering system.
The spring visible here is from the clutch, which has only two positions. You can see aswell that there's a nice gear knob.
First gear, which by accident it's at the back... Gear ratio is 1:1.667.
Second gear, ratio is 1:1.
Third gear, ratio is 1.667:1. Final ratio is 1:2.334. (Engine -> gear ratio -> final ratio -> wheels)
And this is how the clutch works.

The beautiful V10...
The steering, not perfect, but steers.
And this is how big it really is.
Hope you like it! All pics in here:

This is a very nice compilation of your knowledge, I am very intrigued by the clutch spring.
Thanks! But don't know what's so intriguing about it the clutch spring. I just hadn't space for a proper clutch. It just moves the gearbox' s output axle a stud back, so it doesn't connect with wheels' axle.
