CatBurner - Racer


#1

CatBurner is a racing/sport vehicule.

It’s basically a (free) adaptation of the Thrust SSC, a real hypersonic jet-propelled car.

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrust_SSC.

My goal was to put this dual reactor engine on a 4 visible wheels model. After a lot of tries, if finally
decide to merge to two reactor air intake into a single burner room.

As a general design rules, I’ve tried to keep the vehicule as slik as possible, using a lof of circle/sphere/tube primitives.

I called it CatBurner because of the felin shape of the front legs/wheels system, remind me a bit the Gizeh Sphinx when seeing
the vehicule on the top view.

Cheers.

(hope it’s not to late, 23.00 here at Montreal :P)
