42022-B Model Sports Car

IMG_7410 copy

This is the B model of 42022 Hot Rod built by Erin. It’s been converted to right hand drive. This was complicated to do post-build, so I suggest you build it in with attention to the seat and the front bumper so the steering linkage can retain it’s full travel.

It seems to be some sort of rear engine rally buggy. I actually prefer it to the A model – I like the look better, and it steers more smoothly.

42022 is another set supported by the LEGO Instructions app for the iPad. It only has a small selection of recent models in the app, but it’s definitely the way of the future for instructions. I downloaded the low-res PDF instructions from LEGO, but they are a bit tricky – on the black beams you can’t make out the pin holes so it’s hard to count along to find the correct placement.
