There's a race for 1/32nd scale 'hard-body' F1 cars, from the period 1978 - 1982. Cars to conform with CSCRA regulations.
You will also need to build and race a 1/32nd scale Can-Am car to have a chance of winning the Victor Ludorum prize -- a 3-night holiday in Dubai for two people, staying at a 5-star luxury hotel, including breakfast, with flights on Emirates from anywhere in the world.

Rear wheels and tyres: Minimum diameter 19mm, maximum width 14mm 3. Minimum ground clearance: 1.5mm under the chassis and motor.

Russell Just wanted to say how absolutely fantastic that chassis looks. Absolutely WONDERFUL piece of workmanship. I am utterly in awe as despite MUCH experience I just can't make things that look like that....

Thanks, Russell !
What about asking Richard Mack to do something like that ? My idea is to have a narrow flexi central piece to hold motor, front and rear axles (with some suspension details), guide (under the body), with a 76 / 78 mm wheelbase, which will be ok for most of the f1s from 1971 to 1978. Side pans would be done by each one, according to the f1 body to be used.
