Review CaDA C61505 Viva Hypercar
Today I write a few words about the Viva Hypercar from CaDA C61505.
Blockbrickworld’s shipping has once again been very, very good. The model was on the journey for exactly 8 days, from China to Germany. The package contained the individual construction phases in the individual bags, as well as the 2 instruction books. As requested by me, without the original packaging. However, you can also order the model with the original packaging.
The model is divided into 7 construction sections. CaDA marks the bags with numbers, in the instructions with letters. You get used to this feature of CaDA very quickly. Not least because the instructions are very easy to read and understand.
With this model, the designer Thijs de Boer intended to build the model modularly. In each section we clamp a different component of the vehicle, which is only put together at the end.
In section A we build the first part of the cockpit and the front axle. Particularly interesting in this section is both the steering wheel and a height adjustment of the chassis. The steering wheel is built as a complete steering column. This steering column, in turn, fulfills several functions at the same time. On the one hand, it is used for steering, which in turn is linked to the height adjustment of the chassis. This ensures a very realistic picture when turning. Because when the steering wheel is turned, one side of the chassis tilts down and the other side tilts up. On the other hand, there is a switching mechanism hidden in the steering column, which is later connected to section C, the gearbox.
In Section B. Let’s build the cockpit. The heart of this cockpit are the seats. The designer created the seats from a combination of System Bricks and Technik Bricks. This combination gives the seats a very nice look. Unfortunately, CaDA has slight color deviations in the parts, which could possibly disturb one or the other collector.
Section C includes the transmission and the V12. The gearbox is the absolute highlight of the model. Due to the very easy to understand instructions, this very complex gear is very easy to build. CaDA has also added a completely new component to this gearbox in order to circumvent a patent from the market leader. This component ensures that we can switch through all gears very cleanly. Due to the high quality of the bricks, the switching processes are very soft and pleasant. The gearbox has 8 gears with the following ratios:
Gear 1: 2:1
Gear 2: 1.6:1
Gear 3: 1.25:1
Gear 4: 1:1
Gear 5: 1:1.3
Gear 6: 1:1.6
Gear 7: 1:2.1
Gear 8: 1:2.6
The V12 is assembled from standard cylinder bricks. This V12 unit is driven by the gearbox, causing the pistons to move up and down. It’s a pity, you can’t see anything of this piston movement afterwards. The V12 is completely covered with panels, which means that the pistons can no longer be seen. The exhaust system, which is presented with many bricks in flat silver, deserves a positive mention.
Below the V12 we build the rear axle. This axle has a height adjustment which, as with the front axle, reacts to the steering angle. It’s a shame that CaDA used springs that are too strong at this point. The springs are so strong that the undercarriage is unfortunately not quite allowed to dive on one side. Because the immersion on one side of the vehicle is realized via a steering axis, which is routed backwards through the entire model. Due to the long travel of the axle, there is unfortunately not enough power on the rear steering linkage to compress the springs.
At this point, it is best to install softer springs or just one on each side.
Section D includes 2 side panels and the rear of the vehicle. The panels are for the right and left behind the doors. The rear of the vehicle is characterized by the fact that it has a rear wing that is adjustable. The adjustment of the rear wing is in turn connected to an indicated diffuser, also in flat silver, below the model.
In section E, the front of the model is built. This section is then intended more for advanced farmers. Because there are a lot of connections where you have to look very carefully or have enough experience to know how to build it.
Two fans are installed in the storage space at the front, but they do not serve any further purpose later. To cover this storage space, we then build a small flap.
Section F is the engine cover and rear fenders. Again, as in section E, only for experienced builders, because the connections that you build are very special.
The entire section F is again represented later in the model by eiNEN spring mechanism provided for opening.
Section G is to be considered in two parts. In the first half of section G we build the wing doors. These wing doors are interesting but again very easy to build.
After we have built our doors, there are now 12 building elements in front of us and we start putting the individual elements together.
First section A & B is connected. There, in turn, the gearbox of section C is first clamped, in order to then put the V12 on it.
Next, the side panels of section D are attached, as well as the rear, also of section D. Putting these elements together is really easy, provided that you pay attention to the respective alignments of the axles.
We continue with the front of section E. Once this is attached to the model, we build the front fenders directly on the model. Then we insert the flap of the same section.
We now start section F further on the model. This is attached with two pins and two axles. Section F is still missing. The doors are each connected to the model at two points.
Finally the wheels and the Viva Hypercar from CaDA is complete.
In my entire collection, this model stands out because of its excellent looks.
Also technically a very interesting model, but in my opinion it doesn’t really come into its own. Because this model is a static version. So we don’t have a power function that could drive the well-built technique, but only advanced builders should deal with this model. Although the instructions are good and understandable, there are some building techniques in this model that require some building experience.
Finally, CaDA has used some newly developed parts in this model. In general, CaDA has updated many of its parts. You can feel this at every point. The axles now have grip, which wasn’t always the case in the past. Some parts have been given a modified look. The clamping force of the pins has been adjusted again. CaDA did a very good job with the technical elements. On the other hand, CaDA has quality defects with the system bricks. These have next to no clutch power. In this model, due to the static version, this can still be tolerated.
There have already been small changes, if you would like to see them, please switch on my German YouTube video. There I will show you how and where to apply the fixes from CaDA
Have fun building

Grandioses Modell. Sieht super aus. Ist aber nicht leicht zu bauen und etwas nervig. Die Neigung der Hinterachse beim lenken funktioniert kaum da die Federung hinten mit geneigt wird und das ist zu schwer. Keine blauen Pins, top. Leider viele Farbtonunterschiede beim Rot.

As usual, CaDA has again created a marvelous MOC. But this time, also the quality of the connectors has improved significantly . It is now a tight fit. Model still under construction, so no photos yet. Instructions not always 100% clear, but a bit of logical thinking does do the job.

An amazing build up to now. I am on stage 6 of 7. Unfortunately the build instructions are not too clear at times and can be confusing. Great care has to be taken.
