Rasn teh body on an F104W, then used for a shelf queen on a restored 15th anniversary F103.

Carpenters gloves, a transmitter muff or keeping your hands in your pockets until the race starts. After all it's only 5 minutes.

Is that the Ferrari? I am not against the platypus nose. I actually prefer it to the older low nose cars.

Default Dummy DFV

I originally designed this as an engine for my Tyrrell p34. I purchased it to be a shelf queen but I felt it's vacuum formed engine could be improved. So I modeled this engine to be 3d printed. While it's not exactly a Cosworth DFV it fairly close. It fits well on the car and allows the chassis to flex. The engine is mounted to the main chassis while the gearbox is mounted to the wing mounting holes.

I decided to mount the engine on a F104 instead after seeing that with a shorty lipo,and all the electronics mounted inline, I could design a late 60's era F1 body.

That is awesome!! If youmake a 60's F1 body for it, make it the Lotus 49.
D Drive sells the Lotus 49 decals for the 1967 Lotus 49 driven by Clark and Hill.

Something a little different. Used part of our off road track to build a road course. The track is a touch bumpy for F1 but not bad. It is cool having grade changes and various camber/banked turns.
+ YouTube Video
