There are SOOO many inappropriate comments that can be made about the Durex car and any issues it might have on track....but I'll keep them to myself.

I still have my '82 Arrows F1 team shirt I bought from one of the mechanics at the season finale at Caesars Palace. Warsteiner Beer, Rizla rolling papers and Penthouse magazine where the sponsor logos on the shirt. Can life get any better ?

Wow, that might be exciting to watch. Hey, that is what GP2 is doing.

PS - Durex sponsored Keke Rosberg's pink Ralt RT-1 Formula Atlantic many years ago. Saw the car working as a flagman at Long Beach back in the day. Yup, Durex and Trojan would be fitting sponsors for today's car.
Kevin, I agree with you all the way!! They need to kick out the idiots who run the FIA, They are slowly but surely turning F1 into "spec racing" like NASCAR and Indy Car! And Bernie needs to go too! His double points idea is ridiculous...this is Formula One...not NASCAR!!!

If Germany has its way, Bernie will be spending a few years in prison there. I doubt Germany will get its way, however.
Kevin, I wish that I had that same shirt. Those were most certainly the days of tolerance.

Apologies if I missed this, but was there a rough release date announced for the CRC WTF-1? Also, any ballpark street price?

With so many CRC pancars dominating the field at our track, I kinda want to try this one...

Does anyone have a pic of the WTF-1 with the body off? Might help motivate me to save my pennies, nickels, and dimes!

I mostly want one for the name. As I pass someone, they will be all like "WTF was that!" and I will say "Exactly."

3. Does it have camber adjustment? Pillow ball? (looks like it)

Otherwise that's a sexy car. Do want
