I have posted a few variations of the racing car here, car-t9098.html?hilit=racing
There are three pages at the moment to view.

And another thread here, easy-racing-car-t9827.html?hilit=racing

I also made a more detailed racing car with step by step instructions here.
It was made five years ago now............WOW! model-the-month-november-2012-formula-racing-car-t6212.html

Don't forget that was the first time you made it, perhaps make the front wheels a little softer will help.
Or I can go through it next time we meet up, or as a cheat only have one pinch twist at the front wheel section.

Many thanks for this new design. The yellow car is the quick design I had been using.

Since making the car I have now made it from three 350's.
two red for the body section, one black for the wheels and
then a grey 260 for the engine and steering wheel.

Thank you for the order last week Graham!

Heres my racing car - I see what you mean about the red being difficult to photo!

Thanks to Alex, Ross and Paintbox smiles for entering the competition.

I have just done the random name selector and the winner was Eric :D
He he, I always thought it would be funny to put an un related name down as
the selector is called a random name selector and Eric was random.
Well I thought it was funny but sometimes not just in the written word.

So the winner was Alex, congrats.
Un-fortunately I did not realise we were so low on prizes to give away so there is
not too much of a choice this month, you can have either option A or option B.

Option A
Twisticology DVD1 from Robbie Furman

Option B
Captain Visuals Book, Air Heads and Heart Breakers
