pretty easy, a beginner could do it.... my first lego set was a truck and 2 racecars.....

blazzer (author)DJ Radio2008-08-29

u say the word beginner like making lego stuf is a skill.

bumpus (author)blazzer2008-08-29

You spell the word "stuff" like you haven't been in school... :D But seriously, some Lego projects are rather elaborate..

agreed. the largest set they ever sold was a millenium falcon that happened to have 5,000 pieces. so... yeah...

If you didn't base it off of Mario Cart 64 this looks almost exactly the same it's awesome! :) I might build.

bumpus (author)Vynash2008-02-01

i didnt even think of that, awsome

Vynash (author)bumpus2008-02-01

altaria1993 (author)2008-02-01

nice cart ;) but the 90 degrees should be 45 degrees :P

bumpus (author)altaria19932008-02-01

it goes to 90 degrees but we position it at 45 or 50 degrees

altaria1993 (author)bumpus2008-02-01

Really cool Instructable. If I can get the pieces for the bottom part (wheels and stuff) I'm going to try this. Awesome job! +1 rating. (added to favorites)

bumpus (author)GorillazMiko2008-01-31

why dont you try, i've gotten a few things from there before

GorillazMiko (author)bumpus2008-01-31

I can't figure out what that piece is called.

bumpus (author)GorillazMiko2008-01-31

try, small chassis that might work. its an older piece so it could be harder to find

GorillazMiko (author)bumpus2008-01-31

Tried it earlier. Didn't work.
