So what do we think of the New F248 Body?

And the New F206F1 2WD Car?

I think it looks damn good. Much better than the incredibly outdated F201 body.

Was it modeled after a particular car, or just a general F1 shape?

Well the first mold was the Ferrari F248 but when the body was run it would damage the mold so after refining the mold and damaging 4 of them this is what we ended up with so yes it is a F248 Ferrari but this is our first body

I could stand it no longer. I've got one of those sweet looking chassis' on order and can't wait for it to get here. I first saw them at the local races in George's Southern All-Star series and knew I would eventually have to have one. He and the rest of the guys do a great job promoting these things. Unfortunately I won't have mine in time for the race this weekend so the Tamiya F201 will probably be making it's last start for me. I can't wait to get my MLP and show it off and help spread the word!

FordGT you ordered a F201 Chassis kit ok not the F206F1

I hope you know that.

Picture is a roller but this is what your car will look like!

Marty, you may not know it but you just made GT40's day . This is a true F1 fanatic and LOVES racing with us. He is going to flip when he makes the first lap with your frame. We may have to tie him up between heats so he does not get in everyones way pushing the car through the pits making VROOOM VROOM sounds. .

MLP,

You should be at Indy. After watching the USGP, how could anyone turn down one of those cars. If I could afford to go to the USGP, it would be hard to resist that car, but right now I can not afford either. How about a body for IRL cars, they are going to merge with ChampCar and run road courses.

Well this is the first USGP I have missed and Family and the cars are keeping me home this weekend.

If It would have been fathers day weekend like in the past I might have made it.

AS For IRL I don't care all that much for going around on a oval But I have always watched the Indy 500 I am more into roadracing so Champcar works for me!

When we had the IRL / Cart split I wanted to see cart do something more inline with F1 like a F5000 or something all powered by the Ford engine but with F1 type cars and on road racing tracks only But O well we found the IRL cars looking more like a F1 than Champcar and there went the dream of having a series of F1 type racing.

Hey Marty, yeah I am aware that I ordered the F201 chassis and not a complete roller. I race on a budget so I take baby steps. But I've seen your F201 chassis and they are awesome. I love the way everything is out in the open on this chassis so it is much easier to work on. The stock Tamiya is so crowded you have to take the whole thing apart to get to anything. But what I really like about them is the speed.
