Don wrote:Note: Your entry picture must be posted on Flickr, tagged with "2009 Podracer Challenge", and submitted to the FBTB group to qualify. If you do not have a Flickr account: you can set one up for free, or ask another member to host your entry picture for you. If it is not in the FBTB pool or tagged appropriately it will not count.

Don wrote:Stick to the standard 2 pod design with a single energy binder. You saw what happened to Ben Quadinaros at the Boonta Eve Classic. They're not banned from the competition, but they will be judged very harshly and unless you pour your soul into it you probably will crash and burn. Also, no "concept" pods where the parts are physically connected, or there is no cockpit, or it only has one engine... those styles are banned because they aren't true pods.
Chosen One wrote:Well it pretty much then limits the creative and construction approach by limiting forcing the connections to the pods to be only cables. Just like Formula-1 where all the cars are almost same but the paint scheme.

OOM-9 wrote:Yes, you create a thread for your podracer in the MOC section and post a single picture in the podracer rules thread with a link to your gallery and that podracer MOC thread. Does that help?
Yes. Podracers didn't have anything holding the two pods together, just the energy binders; this is why it's such a dangerous race remember?Brickule wrote:So, it has to be an energy beam holding it together, and not something like a chain?
No, you can't. The beam itself should be the only thing connecting both engines. It's pretty easy to follow...Joedward wrote:You could always use the normal trans ornj pieces, and then wrap chains around them.
