    Manufacturer comment: The most popular racer in International Formula 1 racing meeting all requirements. Bigger inside than you would think can accommodate bigger pilots but not in comfort. Often modified and seen at Reno every year. Every part is available but not in a traditional kit. Composite Race wings available.
