Anyway, for all those who aren't over on FFR threads, here is the latest design people are liking:


There will be a race/track version of this design soon. I will try to keep you posted.

I call it the MOD 1, for modular, it can be made fully open or fully closed







Yeah, it doesn't really bother me. He did say it well though, "This is a competition... I'm not your friend".

Gotta agree. I really like the idea of using donor lights, shield, and mirrors to give that polished look.

The Factory 5 Open House is on 6/11 and I believe then. Only a few more weeks.

I'll be there and hope to bring my camera.

Here's my primary submission...Though now that some images of the 818 chassis have been leaked, I don't know how compatible this design is. I'm guessing the final design will still be very XBow-ish. Still, I'm happy to submit this; it was fun building it.








Some videos of rotations around the design:

The image is of the chassis--and I don't think it's official, just located on the FFR forums:

looks like it has stock A arms, control arms, and trailing links. I wonder if the STi pillow ball kits will be a good idea on this car?

It's either oldthink, groupthink, or both. All of these have a 1990s or older played-out look. Probably needed to bring in artists rather than engineers for the mock-ups. Original thinking required.
