Thumbs up UID Winged F1 Bumper V1...

Here is my newest design! I've been at this one for quite some time. It was tough to get all the curvatures and surface integrations clean on this but I think the end result is worth it!

Now this bumper works if you don't mind grinding up your beautiful AutoScale's nose cone a bit. This is designed for function as opposed to fashion! But what you get is an all-purpose, racing front end for your F1! Lightweight, protective and good aerodynamics. My wind tunnel isn't functioning right now so I can't give you actual downforce comparisions.

I have not ordered one of these for myself as of yet because Santa had his way with my bank account! So if you order one before me... please let me know how it works out! I usually prefer to hold onto this stuff until I get it tested but I don't want anyone buying one version of my other bumpers only to find out I had a newer version coming! (there's a fruit company out there with a reputation for this ) So there's all the front end F1 work I will be doing for a while. I'm sure something might pop-up in my head in the future but for now... that's it!

The new model is already in my shop and ready for sale.

Once again, the shapeways link to my shop is in my signature below. Because this part has more visibility, I am offering it in White and Polished, White and Black, Strong and Flexible. The default material is black so make sure you have it set to what you want when you order! If you want to paint one, I'd suggest the white polished one.

Hope you all enjoy it!

No fine print here, just the facts!
I am in no way, shape or form responsible for production or shipping or manufacturing quality of these products. All I can say is that it takes around 15 days to show up at my house after I place an order and the quality is top-notch! What I design is what I get. Shapeways has an excellent record of part quality which is one of the major reasons I went with them for this stuff.

Revisions are complete for all my bumpers, if you want to see where to dremel, just check the models in my shop. You will notice a "U" shape cut into the aft section of them. This should prevent collision energy from transferring directly into the chassis in that area and direct it onto the sloped surfaces only creating a better deflection.
