We re pretty excited to learn that the Nats will be at our home track. Our F1 class is in its infancy, but is drawing interest. A class at the Nats would probably put it over the top. Of course I'm biased. we have about 6 to 8 F1 cars already.

UF1 has just revised the width rules to 190mm for F1 and 200mm for the Le Mans class.. This still separates the higher performing 103 in it's own class but now allows the new Sakura FGX 190mm to compete...
I will agree with that and add that the 103 turns around its center very well, in laymans terms it rotates well allowing it to change direction very quickly. I wouldnt say that it is one factor or another, I think overall the 103 is just a good package.

If it can pass these rules then yes...
http://uf1series.com/rules.html

You have to remember that 6 of the 8 tracks the UF1 Series visits are medium traction asphalt ... pan car based chassis have zero advantage under these conditions with open motors and rubber tires as far as I have seen...

Also you are not allowed to use high down-force pan car bodies...

Someone asked a few months back if they could design there own chassis for this class... again, as long as it fits these rules, then go for it... If it turns out someone creates or discovers some exotic magical chassis that dominates the field, then good for you, but the rules will then have to be adjusted the following year

Nice ride dude!!!! I have gathered up most of the logos to do the decals for this car, it's just a matter of finding the time to scale everything properly to do the sheets.

Other forums I have been on it had to do with posts being deleted in the thread. The posts that made the thread that many pages are gone, but the page count stays the same.

A compliment from such a pro like you are makes me blush .
But I must admit that I did a lot of research in the google picture database and compared it to your pictures on the f1paintlab.com website. The blue is a bit too dark for my taste but that color was in stock at my basement :-D

The decals are from ddrive and I had them leftover from the B192 sheet.
