Have one built, raced and tested. Cool car to look at, cool car to drive.
But it's not competitive against normal F103's because of the tires and lack of movement on suspension upfront. If the track is a little bumpy, then there is not enough travel to have all front tires touch the ground. It's kinda what killed the real Tyrrell P34, Pirelli and Good Year did not want to spend money on one team's test on smaller tires while all the other teams raced normal tires. I have bought 4 sets of front sponge tires from Tamiya that i use on it, the rears are Zen 35's....

But as a casual car to drive for fun at the track or to display, it's great!
