I don't mean to bum everyone out with socialism theories, but honestly right now in our countryt herich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting poorer and the middled class is trying very hard to not fall into the 'poor'. A photographer friend was saying that some of these high-society kids even celebrate birthdays at the taj and hilton and what not.. So "50,000 for a toy? Sure son, but that means no partying allowance for this week for you!" said a father to a son.

True that my friend

This is a Lego Racers 8646. I got this in 2006, but it still looks awesome.

car is pretty heavy. and the suspension is so awesome! just look at the travel in this shot, and the fact that it steers/has a working driveshaft with a diff (no LSD, that's in the next model) is beyond awesome!

here's a shot of the interior,

so that's that. will keep this around for a few days, dismantle and start on 8880. that looks to be a far greater challenge!

started on 8880 after a small break. first the F1 racer. will do the 8865 jeep afterwards. thought i'd save the supercar for last.

here goes. my god this set has tons of new parts. most are exclusive. the level of detail is migraine-inducing.

here's the engine build. its a lot more intricate than 8865, which used square blocks as pistons. purists would say nay, but this has some pretty realistic detail.

then without further ado i started on the 8865 off roader. this wsan't that much of a challenge, but yet the suspension was interesting. its a solid rear axle (without leaf springs of course)
