Out of the dozens of cars that I have built over the years, this is my first F1 style car.. Pics HERE

Functions include:

4 speed gearbox with paddle shifters on each side of the steering wheel
Reverse-Neutral-Drive switch with Reverse being it's own separate gear and isn't influenced by shifting
In car and Hand of God steering
4 Wheel independent suspension
Fake V10 engine
Opening engine cover

Ooohhh that’s pretty slick. I love how it’s got curves like a Bugatti despite being an open wheeler

Caught this on facebook late last night. It is a quite stunning model and looks very well designed. hopefully you have plans in the works, as I am intrigued as how you pulled some of this off. This model should also be able to be done in various colors with the Porsche or 42000 wheels.

This formula 1 looks pretty cool. I like its clean design. How many left over parts remained?

Nice !

If you create some instructions for this model, it would be another reason to  buy the 42083 set.

My compliments as well. I had not expected to see a gearbox. I like your solution with the handles to up/down shift. Obviously also interested in instructions...

Really brilliant functions and design Paul! The F-N-R is in the perfect location and everything seems so well thought out. Love it!

Very impressive model, functions seem top-notch! I see a nostalgic analogy with 8880 and its B-model. Hope you can provide instructions for this one...
