    Default Enzo Ferrari HTPC

    A Ferrari Licensed RC Ferrari Enzo scale 1:7 toy

    HARDWARE:
    ITX Zotac Intel Atom Dual Core 33 A-E
    DVD-LW burner Samsung
    2 x 2,5" HDD, Toschiba 120 GB / 7200 rpm & Hitachi 100 GB / 5400 rpm
    4 GB RAM (2 x 2 GB) Corsair PC2-800
    Fan 140 mm Xilence 2 Components PWM
    Passiv Pico PSU 19 V / 90 Watt

    The diference to the first Enzo mod is not only the car dimension. Here are all buttons in the weels caps (power / Reset /disc eject /close9, zhe DVD-burner is tuned up. this have no eject button (this is in the weel), the green LED is out an in place are two yelows in dhe front light.
    inside I use a 140 mm for the cpu breacked down on 700 rpm to have a completley silence system.
    the windows darked with adesive film what is used by the real cars.
    Inside over the PSU is a double USB conector. One conector goes to the left weel an in the otherone is the wireles keyboard & mouse USB receiver. It works perfekt inside.

    All maiboard conectors ar under the car between accesible between the rear weels.

    See below some pics and a demo video:

    Thanks!

    The bumper is a litle Knight Rider - SPM Mode (Session 4) inspiration.

    Maybee it was the old version in 1.6 but it dont exist enymore.
    It was to big and the used car was a non detailed and non licensed china toy.

    This one is beter not so big and detailed.

    The next step by this project is the remote.
    I will try to tune up the original RC driveing remote, to remote the startup, reset and disc eject functions.
