Obviously from the pictures we can see the car has front and rear push rod suspension, two speed transmission, Centax clutch, laydown engine and awesome realistic rubber F1 tires.

Can anyone else see any special features that I am missing?
Hi Doug ,

Ok I know it looks awful and wrecks the scale appearance of the car but a couple of nerf wings on either side of that front wing would protect the front suspension. Seems that just a small tap on the boards at the speeds this car is capable of would spell disaster on that front suspension and those beautiful wheels and tires.

I don't know if this car will catch on but it sure looks like a very exciting racing class to me. Can't wait to hear some feedback on how it handles. A .28 engine is a lot of power for just two wheels. Geez! This thing must be an absolute rocket.

Front swaybar is sweet. Also very simple. I am not sure of the effectiveness of the heat sink head though. It looks kinda small and when stuffed under an f1 shell it then engine may run a little hot. Looks to be an awesome car though.
