You can make LEGO Technic 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car remote-controlled
The first licensed LEGO Technic Formula 1 set may be out of stock, but you can prepare to make remote-controlled modifications in the meantime.
LEGO YouTuber Unbrickme has managed to get their hands on the original, unchanged version of 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car before it went out of stock on the official online store. Rather than just displaying the mode, they’ve decided to turn their attention towards a few modifications to the build that give it full remote-control capabilities
With the help of the below video, you can take 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car to the track with additional electronic elements. Functions include everything you need to control the set as if it was a full-sized race car.
As demonstrated in the video, using the remote-controlled LEGO McLaren outside will cause the tyres, and likely the underside of the model, to get dirty so it may need cleaning before you put it back on display.

• LEGO Technic 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car receives a redesign
• LEGO Technic 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car sells out in one day
Provided you can get past that obstacle, and find a copy of 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car, the build is big enough for a remote-control makeover.
Anyone who chooses to do this and has yet to purchase 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car will likely find that their version has a few design differences as the set has received a redesign recently. The McLaren creation is also the subject of an upscaled iteration on display at the Australian Grand Prix this weekend, April 2022.
