Haha, got your attention now...

These F1 cars are all looking stunning and I'm getting really interested in building one now. I mean, how hard can they be? There's less chassis than a GT car... lol

Big descision is what to go for... I need something easy, 'cos it'll be my second and a half scratchbuild ever. I would like to be able to use existing stuff, rather than have to go out and buy a whole load of new bits, so is there a catagory which will allow size wheels?

Erm... basically just need a load of help so any info that you guys can provide would be great.

Thanks a lot!


PS. Doesn't have to be a Lotus...

Lotus, you could go a variety of routes. Patto has the PETG bodies, and even has the MJK-30 chassis which fits them. Or you can use a resin shell (easier I think to get there than here), and scratchbuild a chassis. I like the BWA wheels, but I think the PA04 rims are a similar size to the BW32003 for the rear, though I don't think Slot.It has a narrow rim for the front like the BW32001 (the BWA rims are my choice, I'm sure others will suggest different stuff!). Slot.It gears are workable. You don't need to spend a fortune.

So c'mon... jump in, and just do it!
Besides, you have until October!

Carbon-fibre under a '69 Cosworth? You do realize that the time-space gods are currently deliberating on a suitable punishment for you?
