I'm a Thingie freak , and I can't go past the Dynamic Bandit . Its simplistic Open Wheeler stance and well contoured shape , is just brilliant ! Sure , on long tracks , the 36D powered cars leave it behind , but as soon as the corners arrive , it's out in front again . Just a pleasure to drive . The Super Bandit was made to keep up with the 36D motors on the straight , and had the hotter Green Hornet motor . But unfortunately after about 30 or so laps , it would start to become alarmingly hot and slow down , or even burn out . I was also not impressed with the paint job on the Super Bandit , that chocolate brown, done nothing for its supposed hotter status . But the colour of the normal Dynamic Bandit in Root Beer , was most impressive.
Your point above reminds me... You might like to look up the fascinating development of Russian Ekranoplans in the 1950s. The Russians pulled the financial plug on the project, whilst Germans tried to resurrect the technology in more recent times. Jus' sayin.'
