A long time ago I bought a Chevron Models T-Cam for the top of my F1 car... since then, they have been completely out of stock and I can't find one anywhere...

So I decided to make my own...

they are made of black plastic, and they have to be Glued, epoxied, drill tapped and screwed to the Airbox of your F1 car, but I think that anyone who is trying to make their car look good might want to take a look... as with the one from Chevron, in a severe tumble it may be prone to breakage, but since F1 cars rarely end up on their lids, I think we might be safe....

these are rapid-prototyped and based on the 2010 season T-Cam...

and they are available in different materials, but I would suggest the "black strong and flexible"

Hope you like

No 104 is very narrow.

thanks for the answer...in your opinion is an f201 built and used worth anything. I do like the idea of 2 wheel drive better and im looking into an f104

Some have certainly sold for a lot on eBay. I looked fairly recently.

That's very cool. I know what you mean about waiting...looking. I've wanted a couple of these for a while now and haven't been able to find any. I'd like to get a couple, how long do you plan on selling them online?

as long as people want them... if you go to the site I posted, it's a shop that creates your ideas. SO... as long as the company is around, the T-Cam from my shop will be available... I ordered one myself, and the sizing is perfect, and the piece is easily modded..

Enjoy...
