Our club has voted in a class for 50's GP cars for the coming season. The cars are allowed "scratch" chassis, and in order to promote "builds" by some of the newer/less expirienced members. a simple chassis design has been implemented. Rules also govern tire size/motors.
Althogh I have a few cars that qualify, more is better, so the Lotus 16 was built.
In order to save time (not having to make windscreens/exhausts etc. etc.), I decided to start with a Cartrix 16........costly, as I ended up tossing most of it, and, it didn't save me any time as I ended up modifying/replacing everything else.
Details were held to a minimum, as the car will likely be a "donor" for guests/new members.
