A new club in the US. Vintage F1. Control tyres, 1960's body on a Tamiya F104. Niche but very cool!
A very detailed vintage body for under $40 USD, control tyres to take away grip, no wings, modified front arms which pop off if the front wheels take a hard impact, and no moving over by lapped cars - every pass is a "hard pass". These are some of the premises that underpin the new Vintage F1 concept. The idea is to emphasise driver control in a car with good power but limited grip. It will be really interesting to see how this progresses.
For more information, including a very cool video, visit the well put together Vintage F1 site VF1club.com.
