ok so here is some more prototype work on the V2 wing (its more of a wing than bumper now) and my R30 replica paint scheme! let me know what ya think. The more i drive the car i notice that it pushes at high speeds and that is because of the wing and wing mount doing their job, so this wing has a decent amount of downforce. this is a one off and is made of aluminum because thats all i had lying around. they will not be made of aluminum as it will bend if hit hard enough.

I really like that version 2 prototype. I think you need a little air under the wing for it to work properly. So the little gap that you have should be good. The air under the wing is what provides the downforce, not the air above it.

Your Renault scheme looks really good. Making me think about painting my newest body after a current F1 team rather than my own colors...

thanx! i think the wing is about a detailed as it needs to be to keep everybody happy! it doesnt deflect as good as the V1 but good enough for the more experienced drivers. maybe on a tight track use V1 and V2 on an open track? what do you think about leaving the strakes exposed? at first it concerned me but when its on the car it looks pretty good and if they were left carbon you wouldnt even really see it.

yea you should paint a car up! im doin the virgin car also for my back up car. Man Pattos place has stickers for everything!

Deflection is not my primary concern with the bumper. Keeping the car all in one piece is what really matters to me. I have had the front Kyosho bumper break a little, and drag on the track making the car nearly undriveable.

I will think about it...

Both cars look REALLY good. I have never dressed up an F1 to look like a real F1. It takes so much time and effort. I love the way the Virgin came out... One thing about it though, its a little dark and may blend in with the RCP, which may not be a problem for the driver, but could be a problem when working your way around traffic

Both are great representations of the full scale models. I noticed how smooth the Renault was, and was going to ask if you did body work. It looks really good. I have always disliked all the little pieces of bodywork slapped onto the body all over the place with the mid 2000 F1s. I like a smooth look on the cars, F1 cars should be smooth and curvy like a hot woman... I usually strip down my F1 bodies (even autoscales) to make them smooth. I think it gives better aero to the rear wing, and wont hurt a marshalls hand if they grab it the wrong way.

the virgin car is my backup car (unless it works better than the R30!) it is basically a stock SP-1 with tower bars and my sideplates, it runs realy good except im getting that "inside tire spinning" thing if you push it too hard, i think it is the stock front springs causing it. besides that is it a good running car. i did a tremendous amout of bodywork to the R30 i had to hide those inboard shocks that it has. i think the current f1 cars are the best in years.
