This F1 Racecar was something Dugald and I have been talking about doing for a long time. All of the regular batteries and motors just aren't fast enough. We tried our best to keep everything light weight, but enough paneling to show the curves of a real F1.

Technic Addict was so kind to lend us his RC buggy motors, battery pack and Michelin tires. (I am quite fond of those tires, but I checked bricklink and found the cheapest used pair to be 110$ for all 4 so yeah... not going to buy em

Dugald asked Technic Addict what he would like to see built with these motors and he was really keen on seeing a light F1 car to show off the speed of the motor. SO here you go Technic Addict! Thanks!

My brother and I sat down yesterday at 4pm, grabbed a few drinks, and built the night away. At 12pm we were done!

The car weighs 1450 grams or 3.2 pounds. Most of the weight is in the Michelin tires

Super low car for better aerodynamics

@blogzilly - I know this doesn't really help too much (some guy typing on the internet) but just hang in there. My wife is a teacher that specialises in children with additional needs such as autism and behavioural/emotional issues, so I vaguely know what your situation is (although I can't imagine actually being there, having to deal with what you're coping with). I really really hope things calm down for you and your family - moving house is tough for anyone to deal with, and even more so at this time of year. I know what you mean when you're talking about it being sad for him - wouldn't it be great if he could just suddenly understand that everything was really ok and he didn't have to worry, and that he was surrounded by people who love him? You have my admiration and best wishes - I hope you all have a lovely Christmas! :-)
^^ Winter Cul-de-sac! Good term. I do love that big Christmas tree - wish it was in the Workshop set. I'm going to have to get started on my other Chrimbo sets after seeing all these - it'll be the first year I'll have opened them all so should look nice hopefully.
I forgot about that elves (without the capital E) add-on to the workshop - will crack that one open this year!
In the process of checking which of my childhood sets are complete since coming out of my Dark Ages last December. Put together #928 Space Cruiser last week, and decided to give #70816 a go as well. Benny's Spaceship turned out larger than I expected, but still a nice combo!None of my classic spacemen torsos are faded, so apparently I took well care of them when I was a kid...
Don't currently have space to put together a large set (my usual building space is occupied by a 2000 pieces jigsaw puzzle), so had fun with #75168 Yoda's Jedi Starfighter instead:
Lucky for me, at this time of year there's always some gingerbread in the house. Hmmm....pfeffernüsse or one of the ninjabread men @xiahna made?
