I hope it's good, but not good enough to be a game changer if you catch my drift
Wait til you see one dialed in and flying around the track like a Touring Car instead of like a go cart skippin around.
You will want one too.
It really isn't fair.

Just buy a Street Jam SJF1 which works out same price as regular SP F1 and then you will have one kick ass F1.

I'm finding it hard to see what those Fenix bodies are supposed to resemble. They are far from appealing to me. I suspect they follow the "functional" theory, rather than "form".

There are some inspiration to Newey's March in the airbox, and some BT55 Brabham. But you're right the body more functional than "repro". The sidepods are meant to reduce drag.
The whole body is made to lower the drag.

I have to agree. It is very ugly.
For flat one piece bodies I prefer seeing early nineties F1 designs. Unfortunately these are hard to get. Only Tamiya still makes High quality ones, but often without good sticker sets...

I just got 2x awesome bodies from RCART in japan and they are very good quality and made for the street jam f1 which is based on the sp1 f1 and dont have stickers but have a selection of noses. They were cheap as well and based on the 80/90s look.

I dunno, it's not pretty (most f1 cars aren't) but ugly is a bit harsh. I mean, you guys did watch the last season of F1 with the cars equiped with penises I almost had to look away whenever they showed the cars coming towards the camera.
