I've also ordered the 8293 Power Functions kit which will apparently provide LED headlights, motorized gull-wing doors and engine hood.

Also I might order some more RC parts when I can get the measure of this kit a bit better....

Image


The 24 Hours Race Car measures over 3” (10cm) high, 18” (48cm) long and 8” (21cm) wide, so I think roughly the same size as the F1 racer (42000).

The kit has arrived today. :D

I'm now in thinking mode :think: , as I don't know whether to do the racer version or the SUV one:

Image

I think that the racer might involve more, but I really am unsure.

Any thoughts anyone? :)

A pic of all the parts, though rather jumbled up! :oops: :)

NB. I note that Lego have stopped numbering the packs on larger builds (as I know Mark used to hate that)! :)

I too hate the numbered packs makes the build more fun when you dont know which bag to rumage through. And oh look more stickers!!

I just hope the upcoming Porsche 911 kit panels arent all stickers...

and build both verisons. I have the official lego element seperation tool I can send you :laughing-rolling:

Hi Chill,

If I do both then I'm not too sure if I'll be able to apply the stickers on the first kit (perhaps not a bad thing!).

Also as I haven't delved in to it all yet, I'm not too sure if the 8293 Power Functions kit will all work with the SUV as well.

Saying that, to RC it all properly will need a lot more £ and parts!!!

I've just had a quick look through the booklet, and there aren't any instructions for the SUV version, so I suppose that they are only available on line. :think:

Hi Chill,

Yes I agree, especially as the booklet is so thick just for the racer version!

Also the Power functions is added at the end, whereas it would have been nice to have them as an option within the build instructions. :)

I'll have a look on line in a bit as I think I only downloaded the racer instructions. :)

Hi Casp,

Many thanks for the link, I've now downloaded the instructions. :D

I'm not too sure though if the Power Functions will work with the SUV variation though. :think:
