Awesome builds so far. I've managed to put the tyres on the wheel so far. Doing a build tomorrow night all going well.

I have officially retired from international football.

I built mine but don't currently have means to upload pictures, lets just say it would destroy everyone else in the field so far, except maybe the tank, but mine is built for speed so I'd just outrun that.

Its a three wheeler (1 front 2 back), built for speed and the ability to sabotage foes. It comes complete with front spikes to puncture the tyres of anyone who happens to be in front of me (unlikely I know), a distracto-pole which flips out to the side or up above the car equipped with lights to blind any opponents unlucky enough to be behind me (everyone in the field essentially). Once you've been distracted the final nail in your coffin will be deployed, a ramp will drop from the rear of the vehicle which in your hapless state you will drive onto triggering said ramp to flip back up and you to do a violent 180 flip onto your roof.

If the attacking prowess of this machine wasn't enough it also is equipped with a cabin which is fully protected against any attacks the driver might face from vehicles behind.

Impressive I know. Lucky you guys can't set sight on this intimidating machine just yet.

Obviously there is bending of the rules by sticking a non standard monkey in the vehicle. How far is too far though? :shifty:
Couple of 36 x 4s?

Mini figs are allowed as long as they are not part of the structure.

The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them in parliament.

I thought there was going to be a vote for the best.

If you want.

I never said anything about voting for the best though.

Speaking of which here's my Wacky Racer: The Spice of Thrice

Apologies for the shitty picture quality

Image
As you can see its a three wheeler built for speed but also kitted out with some awesome weaponry

Image
First off up front are the diamond tipped spikes, built to be driven into the rear wheels of anyone unfortunate enough to be ahead of me.

Image
A nice cabin for my driver well protected from any attacks that would be foolish enough to come from the rear.

Image
Side view showing the sleek aerodynamic design.

Image
Rear view showing the protected drivers cabin, the flip ramp up in its default position for when its not required and to the left the distracto pole.

Image
Here you can see the flip ramp in its deployed position ready for some unwitting fool to come to close when it will scoop them up and with a whip flip them into the air to land on their roof.

Image
The distracto pole in its fully upright position ready for the powerful lights to start flashing, blinding any rear opponents and hopefully forcing them to drive onto the flip ramp.

Image
Distracto pole out to the side, able to thwack opponent or act as a wide view distraction. Flip ramp deployed to the rear.

Image
Full view with all weapons deployed

8-)

If I can get the set in Sainsburys with a load of Nectar points, I'd like to be in...

Is it too late to join?

Cool. No joy in Sainsburys today but I've got it on reserve at Argos for tomorrow, I will try and do a wacky racer even if we've moved on.
