Thanks!
I'll have an look on ebay!

Questions??

OK, someone pointed this out to me today and a flag of concern went off for both of us

The image and text below are directly from RedRC.net.
http://www.redrc.net/2012/05/3racing...dy/#more-55042



"Finally 3Racing’s new F1 body, the JLB03 Type A, is made for popular direct drive F1 chassis and is their first pure bred F1 race body. Incorporating crucial aerodynamic properties, the JLB03 body features fins on the nose part of the body, providing essential front down force. The narrow and angled raised side pods have proven to provide better stability during high speed cornering and the upper air inlet has been lowered giving a lower overall height of the body. Fits the Tamiya F104 and 3Racing’s soon to be released F113 F1 chassis and other narrow F1 chassis with a longitudinally mounted battery pack. An ABS plastic driver also included to maintain its realistic F1 body look."



Ha...I had know idea...Has the heightened attention of F1 brought about the need to change the appearance that many of us gravitate towards, I don’t think so…that’s why I’m still in it after all these years. But maybe I'm missing something.

So, my questions to the masses; is this the direction F1 should go, meaning, performance over appearance? Is F1 seeing the beginning of the sedan car phase, where bodies are morphed and stickers are the only thing left that resembles the real car?

I'm sure most can guess what my answer is...what are your thoughts and opinions?

Anyone….

Not at all surprising from the makers of the 190+mm "Moderne" F1 chassis

What's crazy is the rccarfans.com site on the side of the body is an all "scale type" gt and LMP style cars series, besides the F1.

This body is just a bad idea.

it's one ugly body....no matter what perceived difference it might have on performance, I will hope to have a paper bag on hand to put over it. Fingers crossed it doesn't take off.

I hope thats not the way its going. Although I am one of the first to "ooh and ahh" at the new F1 stuff as it comes out. I would like more bodies to come out, but would like them to stay scale instead of leaning towards "performance first". We can vote with our wallets. Wonder if the body would look better without the flashy generic livery. Or maybe just on fire I like the fact that they are putting out a new body, I just dont really like it.

The comment I left on the site. The body looks like a cheap "race car" you would buy at Toys "R" Us. This body does nothing to look like a realistic F1 car even with the ABS plastic driver.

Keep the bodies and wing sets looking scale. Making them look like cheap generic knock offs is not the way to go. I actually would love to have a body that resembles the 2012 cars including the stepped nose.
