    Project - Porsche 911 GT3 RS - Lego Technic

    I haven't done a project thread before, so bare with me, but I have been meticulously photographing every part of the build and I will get them up soon.

    I had one slight mishap - missing wishbone for the front suspension, however Lego are sending me a replacement.

    Pistons, conrods and crankshaft for a flat 6

    Engine build on it's way

    So I've finally completed stage 2 of the build. And will start posting up pictures shortly. It's quite a project. It actually pretty much follows the build sequence of the real GT3RS

    Flat 6 engine coming on nicely

    So the next part was a straight 4 hours, assembling the gear box, chassis front axle and steering .


    Not so easy to spot is the selector on the transmission tunnel for drive neutral and reverse. for the fully functioning paddle shift gearbox. Apparently lego got the gear selection wrong going from 1st to 3rd to 2nd and then 4th. But a simple switch of 2 gears corrects that
