Honestly, we miss a proper body, so we've to play a bit. Driver should seat a little more backward.

But math... is math... in the late 60's wheelbase was 2500 meter, today is 3700mm.. There is 1.2 meter difference...

It's funny how fans compare wheelbase pics. IIRC wheelbase changes drastically on different tracks.

I think I liked the look of the previous rear wings better. I just wish that the halo was gone.

Wow, when the cars are on the track racing I've never noticed the cars have been getting longer. How many generations are in this picture you posted?

It seems the cars started getting super long in the V6 era. Apparently the 2021 rules has a maximum wb at 3400mm. Longest ever was the 2017 W08 at 3760! For comparison the 2013 RB9 was only
3100.

Default Rubber tyre for black carpet

I have tamiya F104 and I'm looking for rubber tyre (rim) for black carpet. I believe CRC rim does not fit for F104 hex hub (14mm), is it right? Thank you.

Same here but you donít notice because hardly any of the tv feed is above the cars looking down. So you donít see the proportions. Most of the cameras are trackside at approx eye level or lower, and usually sees the cars coming towards the camera so you donít see their length so much.

CRC rims are exactly the same hex as Tamiya rims.

they just fit on a bit tighter than a tamiya wheel would, but still work perfectly

When seeing these and the Indy cars for the first time in person, I was amazed at how much car was behind the driver.
