Cool car. Not really my cup of tea though. You should have painted it black. Everyone knows that black cars go faster as black has the least wind resistance Smile

this is why the underside is black Wink accelerates the air underneith lmao!
I know its not to everyones taste, i certainly wouldnt say these cars are the most attractive things on 4 wheels ever, but its not really a car... just a VERY fast advertising board!
but im proud of it and its the reason ive had so little time for KITT over the winter lol

in terms of scanners/sensors although there is no strolling red lights there is plenty of high tech sensor equipment going on.... u just need to know where to look Wink

some of the more recognisable bits I did this year are

  • The (green) turning vanes next to the sidepods
  • The front bardge boards (see where the car goes from orange to white at the front, look directly below thats the FBBs
  • The rear view wing mirrors, I managed to get them down to 215g painted, with all the mirror mechanism and fasteners etc... Obviously gotta add the weight of the camera when were running it in there.

well theres where alot of my time this winter has gone "AGAIN!" lol

Its ok you can tell me, I'm not on Saubers payroll ....... honest! haha

Should be an interesting year for you - you have a strong driver pairing - Will be interesting to see if 'Hulk' stays as 3rd driver for long tho ..

Haha! we do have probably the strongest driver line up of the midfield teams so... hopefully if we can get 2 drivers regularly scoring points we could overhaul williams maybe

its still far to early to know how we stack up against the others...

Toro rosso are looking VERY quick at the moment. Since they hardly seem lacking in sponsorship it seems highly unlikely that they are running underweight to gain attention - Unlike Williams haha.

I don't think McLaren are sandbagging, unless Lewis and Jenson have been taking acting classes recently, the recent interviews they gave kinda suggest things are not as they should be, somewhat 2009!!

Yer I think u might be right, I think they will get to the bottom of there problems though.
We wont know anything meaningful until the first race so lets see how that pans out first Smile

Has the cancellation of the first race effected things much for you? Sorry for all the questions, I'm just interested in all the logistics etc..
