The Hob

As a big fan of Rap and Hip Hop and the lifestyle and culture that comes with it,
it was always one of my inspirations building some of my models.
I had a few attempts on building a proper lowrider with working functions,
but this time i thought i go full throttle for it ;)

First of all big thanks to:

He helped me in the beginning with understanding of the functions,
but in the end all the pictures on Jevries awesome Rc lowrider website:

www.jevries.com/

helped really to understand how a lowrider works and what you have to do
adapting and building something complex like this.

So the base as you can see is a Chevrolet 64 Impala.
I orientated myself on all kinds of pictures from the internet
to figure out how i wanted it to look like.

The theme here totally is bound to green as the color of hope
and all that visually comes with that.
I got the dices dangling from the window frame and the Leprechaun in the back.
There is no real interior except for the nice chain steering wheel,
simple because all the powerfunction elements used up all the space in there.
I got a little funny bonus in there though which is a tiny speaker and
a mp3 player to play some phunky tune while ridin´.
The front (transparent clear) and back lights (transparent green) works.
All 4 supsensions are working with powerfunction motors.
It can go into 3 wheel motion which was pretty tricky to figure out.
There are a lot of custom parts which some of you don´t like.
I think in this case they really do a good job shining and blinging ;)

    Oh man! I went to see a low-rider exhibition at the Petersen Automotive Museum in L.A. a while back, and this thing would totally fit right in!
    Superb work! It's a Chevrolet Impala, isn't it?
