If you want more pics, I'm sure I can make some :P
I think Corally updated their F1 chassis around 2003 or so to the Pro10 front suspension and saddle packs, and more recently to longitudinal lipo packs and a sidelink system. Corally.com has a list of 'old' parts, but that list doesn't show if parts are still available. The damper plate is available, as I bought one this year. I was able to get the parts to give my car a good overhaul this year (rubber rings in the front suspension, pivot balls), through a regular Corally dealer. Luckily, the car is quite sturdy, and not likely to break much. The only parts I recall ever breaking during regular racing mishaps (open wheels supposedly teach you to respect other cars? :P) was a steering block every once in a while.
There's only two downsides to the car that I can think of: the grease inside the pod gets thrown to the sides when you hit a steep curb, affecting handling until the grease has had the chance to settle a bit again. A couple of guys here thought up a pivot modification that removes the pod from the equation for normal damping (not unlike the sidelink system) to counter that. The other is practical: some regulations may not allow it due to being too wide (205mm). That said, with the fairly mild motors commonly in use (silvercan, Tamiya Formula Tuned 32T, 21.5T blinky) it's not going to be faster than a good 200mm car.
The older F1 bodies should fit just fine. The body from the F109 will fit, and Corally still has their F1 body available too.
