The Stirling HotRod
« on: February 03, 2015, 05:41:02 PM »
The Hot Rod I designed with the help of an original Hot Rod picture there are no drawings. I have all the parts made, only the tires I bought. Because his weight is 2.6 kilograms, he is quite heavy and also the resistance of the wide tires, he is not as fast as I'd like.
But I'm satisfied. It has become a nice model.

Here you can see how he runs.
