A car in a Day – A Lego Technic building challenge.

A car in a Day – A Lego Technic building challenge.

Yesterday I had a day free to myself and wanted to build something, I decided to set myself a challenge to build a car from scratch in a day. The limits I had was that I only had a day (8 Hours) and I was limited to only the pieces from 8068 (Rescue Helicopter) and 9395 (Pickup Truck) to build this.

I had done no prior planning on this; I woke up and decided to do it. The idea I had was to build a car with as many features as possible and which looked and worked in a realistic manner.
I managed to build the car with the following features:
- Working steering connected to the steering wheel in the car.
- V4 engine (Real mounted)
- Working differential
- Opening rear hood
- Opening doors
- Adjustable seats
- Working hand brake

I had wanted to add pop up headlights but after spending some time trying to add these I could not get them to work how I wanted so I removed these and just mounted the lights at the front, maybe in “Version 2” I will be able to add these and get them working.

Overall I am quite pleased with how it ended up, the limit on what pieces I had meant that some of the colours are not quite how I would like, still I think it looks quite good.

Now for the photos legohappy

I was getting quite excited by your car thinking it looked a lot like a VW dune buggy. Then I saw the V4; so so close.

This is a really good result for a single day unplanned build. I wish I built quicker. My stuff takes months to years.

Well here is a video I took of it in action before I broke it down to use the pieces in another MOC I am building.
