I like that the results are rapidly reproducible. For that 25 minute main, you can confidently just add more dampening lubricant and know it will be the same.

Pretty tough to beat the Xray X1 but this new Tamiya design looks very good - much better than the previous TRF and almost everything else out there right now.

Haven't race F1 since 97' in a F103, but I'm really thinking about this car. What body and wings will it use? Any F104 or will we have to wait and see.
