Full sized LEGO car, powered, apparently, by air...

    Presumably compressed air?

    The axles are clearly not lego, but lego covering metal. I wonder how many other metal parts are hiding inside, and how much of the lego is glued. In that case, what is the point of it being lego? Might as well just be pre-fabricated plastic parts if they are glued.

    A gradient in the road will also help of course.

    It's described as "A car made of LEGO, that drives, has an engine made from LEGO which runs on air. (Wheels and some load-bearing elements are non-LEGO)

    The video was posted to YouTube yesterday so I think it's new... and cray cray.

    Damn, so Blacktron managed to steal the compressed air technology after all...

    Just came to post this. I kept waiting for it to fall apart. :-)

    Despite it having not lego support components and a significant portion being glued it is still an amazing feat to see the gearing in the engine being able to transfer the power to the wheels of something that large and heavy. Testament to what LEGO parts can handle and to the ingenuity of the engine design that likely focused on distributing the torque across a large number of gears.

    I've probably got 1/2 a mill blocks; maybe I could build a copy?
