This is the first version of the car, created several years ago. It features a rougher exterior design but uses the preferred wheels (not available in the Lego Digital Designer).
The rear of this virtual model is significantly more sculpted than the prototype. I tried to recreate the smooth lines of vintage racers and incorporate details such as exhaust, fuel tank (seen underneath), a fuel filler cap, and some minor instrumentation details in the cockpit.
The side view shows the cars profile. The engine is a 3-cylinder technic model (a more authentic 6-cylinder would be size-prohibitive) with triple side-draft carburetors. Steering was accomplished in such a small space by running the steering linkage through the side of the engine block.
UPDATE: As of 4/19/2014 the wheelbase has been shortened, moving the rear axle towards the front of the vehicle. This is a more realistic layout but presented difficult driveline challenges.
The bottom view shows a bit of drivetrain detail. There is one bevel gear missing from the differential due to a glitch with Lego Digital designer, but overall the model is very complete.
