Front Top

 

Picture

    This front view shows the steering off. The wheels in this picture are turned as far as they can go. This is not too good of a turning radius. But dragsters don’t have too good of a turning radius anyway.

I used some old Technic steering wheels for the front wheels, the rubber on them comes from (believe it or not) an umbrella. They were rubber grips for the handle.

  The steering system is rather interesting. The height of the gears and struts needed to do the system was taller than the height of the dragster at that point. I made the system as low as I could but that made it the same height as the dragster. After a little more work, I fit it in, but all that is connecting the front airfoil section to the rest of the dragster is two plates. One over the steering system. and one under. Isn’t Lego engineering great!
