This is the 8 Ball, a Lego Pod Racer built by David Roberts. This creation was inspired by the big Lego half arch, and wanting to build something with them. The end result is a round pod with a wing/tail. The Lego 8 is a great example of Lego typography. The middle bit is created with two white 1×2 jumper plates, and a black 1×2 flat plate going the opposite way. A simple and perfect solution to achieve that 1/2 stud spacing. Two giant engines bolted onto the back help to push this racer to the finish line, hopefully faster than pods 1-7!
