The Story Behind The Creation

Ever since the SPIKE Prime kit came out, I wanted to make a Pod Racer. The small, oblong motors with the flat wires instantly made me think of the engines that pull a pod. I have tried many different configurations, and it was difficult to find one that looked good and worked great. Originally, I wanted the model to be pulled by the motor wires, not LEGO beams. But that was impossible to steer. Finally, a found one and I created building instructions for it. The model seats a minifigure, has a ‘hovering’ pod, and is pulled by two engines. Enjoy racing your friends in a real-life pod race!
