1972 Ford Racer

Auto Credit Based on Othawne's Game Key / Bi-Plane Challenge! (CLOSED)

Based on a concept designed for the 1972 Reno Air-Races. This beauty would have been powered by a Ford V8 engine. Sadly she never flew, due to changes in the rulebook regarding wing configuration and engine displacement. She will live on in SP.

    This plane is pretty good, I tested it on the Trench Run challenge on SP and it only missed 3 out of 41 on autopilot, I would say that is amazing!!! Good job ;-) :-)
