LEGO Technic 8081 Extreme Cruiser / Hot Rod, Mean Beast Unleashed, Year 2011

LEGO Technic 8081 Extreme Cruiser - Hot Rod - BoxLEGO Technic 8081 Extreme Cruiser / Hot Rod Set -only 590 pieces, but Man! What a car this is!! Killer looks. Set aimed at age 9-15 means the assembly will be medium tough. The size of the Extreme Cruiser is nice and with dominating black it resembles huge SUV's on the market. Occasional red bricks add depth to the "business looks". There is also a bunch of stickers, also on black background.

LEGO Technic 8081 Extreme Cruiser offers some functions but judging by the amount of interior space it is obvious that it has been designed with LEGO Power Functions in mind. There is tons of space under the hood as well but only a 4 cylinder engine, hmmm...? (the fuel crisis comes to mind).

LEGO 8081 sports interesting suspension mechanics, independent three point front, and opening hood, rear gate and doors.

LEGO Technic 8081 B Model - Hot Rod

The B Model LEGO 8081 is another good size car which appears to be a low riding version of the main model, without the hood and with the engine carburetors sticking out. Again the functions are similar to the Extreme cruiser with slightly less space for Power Functions.

Both models are very nice constructions that could be put together in a few hours. With the good amount of various functional pieces this set can be rebuilt into many other things.

The caveat is that main LEGO 8081 model uses three books of instructions, and B model manual has to be downloaded - please, see resources section.
