Default WRC Racing F-One

Hey fellow F1 fans; check out this new F1 car from WRC Racing that I found on Red RC

Very nice! Can't quite figure out how the rear suspension works though. Need more pictures or a more detailed description.

Wonder if we will ever see it here in the USA?

Slick looking for sure. I would love to see the pics of the rear end. I am guessing some form of a mono-pod.
The front looks cool. I do not see any front springs. It looks like the lower arm works as a flex plate.

I'm thinking the front springs might be inboard maybe. The car is so new that it isn't even on WRC Racings' website yet. I think they are in Germany.

I zoomed the pics of the car and there appears to be some sort of rear pivot setup. Looking forward to getting more complete info on this car and whether or not we will get it here.

I want one too!!

However when I went to their website I found that the USA is not on their list.

I sent them an email asking if they are thinking of selling that car over here.

Also asked them how the rear suspension is designed on the car, as the pictures don't help much. Pictures are on their website now.

I will post any update info I find.

Looks like an awesome car!

I wish someone would post pics of how the the rear suspension in particular works on this car. None of the pics I have seen give a clear view of it.

The front looks fairly standard; I assume there are small inboard springs for the front suspension?

Will Tamiya F1 bodies and front and rear wings fit?

by looking at the spare parts list it has front springs.
the rear looks like a pivot ball setup with a spring either side (like some pan cars,but much closer togethor) but i dont see any damper tubes.

I have seen a picture of the rear end, and it looks a lot like a variation of the HPI Super F1 and RS 1/10 pan car setup. Same principle and different execution.
