Made for the Bio-Kart Grand Prix over on DeviantART.
About this creation
This is my official entrant into the Bio-Kart Grand Prix contest which can be viewed here:
The goal was to build a kart/vehicle that was reasonably passable as a kart like vehicle that had to incorporate offensive and defensive features to tackle other peoples machines on the track.
The driver of this vehicle is Trah. He belongs to an insectoid based race which come from the same area as the beasts WOIRIN. He has stump legs with 2 toes on each foot for controlling the pedals of the Bewger. His arms are his primary means of transportation outside of vehicular areas and uses them to walk on due to their length and surprising strength.
Trah has equipped himself with a backpack in emergencies and is stored at the back of his Bewger vehicle.
The Bewger is a medium weight vehicle that is built for speed and to also withstand some levels of attacks.
Lighter than most vehicles, the Bewger has the advantage of being able to gain a speed advantage over most other competitors but this does come at a price.
More speed requires les weight and armour must be sacrificed to acheive this. The most heavily armoured areas of the vehicle are the front, rear, and rear sides. This leaves the midsection open to attack.
Weight is removed from the vehicle by only having the bare frame of the roll cage as the canopy. It doesn't really provide any defense but lessens the weight slightly and provides head cover from rolls.
The Bewger is equipped with 2 machine guns and the ammo is stored on the underside of the vehicle. The ammunition used is armour piercing which means that less bullets do more damage and aren't wasted unnecessarily by shooting as many as possible. Even though they are placed either side of the cockpit, they are slightly angled in to have a more central target area.
The further away the target is, the more centralised the firepower will be.
The Bewgers machine guns are operated by a lever in the cockpit.
The Bewger is also equipped with a defensive action. Just below the armoured rear is a large oil tank which can be manually activated by switches inside the cockpit. This releases a thick spray from 2 opposite nozzles that plaster the road in oil causing other vehicles to instantly lose traction and 'skid-out', often with painful results.
As a rule of the Bio-Kart contest, each participant is given 20 stat points to distribute to different categories to set up a sort of quick bio of the vehicles:
Speed - 6
Handling - 3
Acceleration - 4
Weight - 3
Attack - 2
Defense - 2
I loved making another vehicle, I know I'm not good at all at them but this contest was another opportunity to learn.
I even managed to include front wheel steering which can be seen on the MOCpages set up for Trah and The Bewger.
I also found it fun to put in a steering wheel and the couple of little levers and stuff in the cockpit.
Good luck to all other contenders and have fun ^^
Wow, this is really great. A little constructive criticism, I think the drivers horn is too long. Maybe you should try one of the black claw/tooth things from ninjago? Other than that, it is amazing. The buggy is great, I especially like the color scheme and engine. The flames add a nice touch.
I like it

Awesome, although I have too agree with LA. the pilot is awesome. also, LA, the green 'back' was actually a backpack. he mentioned it in the description.
LOL +1 to Nexal. Well, about the vehicle, I prefer the old buggy one, however that's because the look and not the design. This version is amazing, I love the cockpit with the motor at the back. But my favourite part is, I'm sorry, the pilot. Trah is so cute and has a magnifique design! Well, the green back is a bit out of place, it would need a bit more of lime green on the front, but it's absolutely marvelous! May could someday build one, with your permision? =)
Not good eh? Are you possibly looking at this thing with your eyes shut? This is great. I love the way you formed it and the detailing is wonderful. The driver wins the MOC though for me. So cute :3 Great work Fluffy.
