Credit to Taki for the paint job, thanks boss!
Thanks to Freerider for the idea, thanks bud!


We planned to come back into F1 in 1977 but we wanted to borrow parts from Lotus which they refused to hand over. So holding a grudge and hearing from other competitors about Lotus' new idea for ground effects, we hopped into the 1978 season with our own factory car, with our own parts and pieces developed over the year we had. It was a close call but we got the car finished in time for pre-season testing. She had a newly built flat-12, a sequential 6-speed transmission, and our own variation of ground effects. We kept the car basically the same for the 3 years we were in F1 until we pulled out mid-season in 1980. She had some minor upgrades over the 3 years, including tires, brakes, wings, and pistons. The vehicle here is the Evo III of the 1980 season, which was found with the 1962 F1 car in the storage facility. We don't know what happened to the #53 car, we lost it around 1990- but we have descriptions, codes, and serial numbers for it if anyone steps forward saying they have it. #87 is currently on display in the UnisCo Museum.

    @AtomicCyclone you can kind of simulate ground effect if you have wings to provide downforce but for this I just upped the grip on the tires.


    Also I like the suspension I put on this particular model as well as the other F1 car I made, Takitech is currently in the process of several new technological builds- but I will check it out, thank you :)

    @Spikerya I really wish ground effect was present here in simple planes :(

    @Spikerya if you want a realistic F1 suspension, check out my F1 Fictional Concept Polossi RT, the FRONT suspension is a multilink pushrod, just like real F1s! Feel free to use and modify it!

    Oof, apparently the engine on your F1 car doesn't like to be reliable..., i like how the car is so low to the ground (as all ground effect do...) along with the whole body, Aerodynamic Am i right
