CG-2 "Lancelot Blitz" GT . "The winner ain't the one with the fastest car, it's the one who refuses to lose." -Dale Earnhardt . Introduction: It might be a bit late into the contest but here it is, my entry for the second contest run by LTE.
The theme is Racing mecha. Conditions: the mechs must have wheels and can only be 21 bricks high at most.
I'd like to give many thanks for Andrew Hump-Free for helping me with the picture editing! Also kudos for the great main pic!

The CG-2 "Lancelot Blitz" GT is a state of the art racing mech designed with the sole purpose of winning and to achieve that, the machine requires a skilled pilot.
However, a skilled pilot isn't always enough and for that reason, the creators of this "swift demon" blessed it with speed and agility in the form of a 3000HP engine and with a pair of the cutting edge technology Landspinner Propulsion System(Yes, if you're wondering, this is from Code Geass).
On feet the Lancelot can easily obtain a running speed of 120km/h, however when the Landspinners are active, this speed can jump up to 350km/h without the loss of manuverability and turning. Each wheel has it's own break system that can slow down the machine from top speed to 0 in a matter of a split second.
Now, people would think, "what can a fast monster like this do when there are obstacles on the track?", the answer is simple: Since the legs and the landspinners themselves can each pivot, these can be used to move off the ground using the surrounding surfaces as points of contact, or simply make a jump.
The Lancelot can also participate in night races, even low visibility can't stand in it's way to reach the goal.
The lancelot is a tall machine (a little shorter then 21 bricks).
