Lego enthusiast Sariel is a pro when it comes to making replicas of automotive things, and his long list of DIY Lego projects proves the point all-right. This time he has invested his time in making a Lego Technic RC F1 Car, a replica of the very famous Ferrari 248 F1 car from 2006 Formula-1 season that was driven by the legend Michael Schumacher. Sariel who’s not that much of a Formula-1 fan, admitted that while making this Lego project he could not exactly replica the car, but also said that it is pretty close to the real thing.

The car has a two-speed remote control transmission which is connected to the power train built around rear axle. To make things interesting he made sure that the brake lights blink when the car is in second gear and the rear spoiler also raises to signify DRS aesthetics. He also managed to create a double wishbone suspension for this miniature F1 RC car along with a return to center configuration for the steering.

Although the car can notch up a top speed of just 7.5mph (12km/h), but considering that Sariel had to tinker around with the body make to optimize the mechanics depending on total weight (1.709 kg), it will be good enough for all RC car fans. It’s worth mentioning that he had to get his head around on how to adjust the gear ratios depending on friction and complexity of his design, otherwise the car would not move as smoothly as we can see in the video.

Since a Formula-1 car is made precisely to reduce aerodynamic drag and keep the weight to minimum therefore its exterior body is also shaped in such a way. That is why Sariel had to work overtime to figure out how to fit all the RC components inside such a small form factor which doesn’t have much space. In the end he managed to fit all the components very well and the result is a RC Formula-1 car that looks quite impressive. Have a look at some more pictures of this DIY project that adds another creation to the long list of Lego creation that we loved in the past.
