Overall a cool looking chassis, but the front upper arms are FUGLY in my opinion....The front lower arms remind me of the TRG cars, but the upper arms need some F1 styling.

Seeing as it's a totally new car that doesn't recycle a pan car front end, it seems crazy not to have made the front end F1-ish, as the chassis' appearance (as well as performace) is generally what appeals to most of the F1 guys.

New VBC F1 looks good... Nice to see a company breaking away from the norm and coming up with their own design.

Good to see another company producing a quality product. I agree on the front arms. Something more full scale F1 looking would have been nice, but overall I like it.

Thumbs up

A bit of carbon decal on those front arms will tighten it up

U-channel adjustable rear ride height, and looks like plenty of adjustable stuff on the front end

Should be a winner

Ray, Look forward to seeing you out at TQ racing one soon

Quite fitting when you park it in the final turn of qualifying!

True!!!! I could always go for the Alonso Monaco Livery from a few years back. Go out set fast lap in FP3 then proceed to wad the car and miss qualifying. I'd do a Webber livery, but I refuse to lose 4 positions on the start of the main.

Grosjean would be the most fun. Just blast everyone off the track.
