42000 Rod
Alternate model of Technic set 42000 Grand Prix Racer
About this creation
It's been a long time since I designed an alternate for a Technic set. So it's about time for another one! Here's my Hot Rod or Street Rod version from set 42000.

Includes the following functions:
- V8 engine
- Rear wheel drive
- Full independent suspension
- Working steering wheel and HoG
- Opening back/ spoiler with mini linear actuator
- Opening doors and bonnet (manual)

A tapered front with some small headlights.




Side profile including exhaust pipes and a subtle red line.




The wide back.

Update: Now you can also build this model if you'd like!
Full detailed instructions are now available for a small fee at MOCplans.
If you don't want to sign up, or like to use instructions offline, you could alternatively purchase and download a .pdf from here.

Just finished this last night. Excellent and challenging build! Very creative use of pieces to achieve certain angles and support. Being fairly new to Technic, it gave me a lot of new ideas and inspiration as it doesn't follow some of the traditional building that I have seen in current Lego models. The suspension and use of panels are great. The instructions were done very well and worth every penny. They are about as close as you can get to actual Lego instructions. Some of the steps were a little hard to see but if you keep your wits about you, then you'll figure it out. I recommend buying the instructions and enjoy the build.

WOW ! Fantastic alternate ! I really like the cars with the spirit of the Lotus Super Seven, Donkervoort, Vertigo... And this model is great !

A very cool alternative. I especially like the body work. The wheel base is a little wide but I suspect that cannot be helped due to the suspension arms. Love the narrow nose with grille. As you know I love F1 cars and have been looking at this set, but trying to resist buying it as I have too much lego as it is!!! :D. Thanks for your feedback on my latest, I have responded.

Great Job! For this reason I bought this set. I just started to learn the Technic. Still quite difficult for me. ;o))) But I think, this is not a typical set to beginers. Which set would you recommend?

Better than the official set, and a lovely model in its own right. I'd buy it : ) 5 stars, a really class Technic model. As on Flickr, you're on TLCB today; http://thelegocarblog.com/2013/07/12/b-side/ I'll invite you to the 'Blogged by...' group

Simply smashing, it reminds me of a Plymouth (or was it Chrysler, oh how thw mind goes with age) Prowler that came out a few years ago for a limited run. It would be so sweet to see this one with power functions tearing around but I'd still take it as is!

Its nice to see a new alternate creation from the masterbuilder again. Personally I am more a fan of your creator alternates, but this Technic ROD is really great.

I'm not a fan of hotrods, but I am a fan of Lego and alternates and this is again a great alternate by you. Well Done!!

COOL... The Alternate's King is officially back! Not that I didn't like the glasses, but this is one is way more exciting to my eyes ;-)) Congratulations, great job! - MZ
