I have been searching without success for an organization with technical rules for Formula E 1/24th.
 
The bodies below have been sized to be used under a modern 1/24 flexi chassis.

 

We are considering importing them if there is interest in running a class.

Question: If someone started a series with these bodies, flexi chassis and a spec FK type motor, would you be interested in racing them?

I would be interested in getting a body and seeing what the thing would do. 

 

Maybe with a spec motor, chassis, pinion and tires.

That looks like the betta body, I like most of their bodies, but that formula E is quite ugly,

IMO there are few racing cars in the modern era that could honestly be called "beautiful". Function over Form has run riot.

IMHO current LeMans prototypes lead the world in ugly :shok: Even when they are in my favorite color scheme

 

YMMV

I think these bodies may look better than the 1/1 FE cars do.

 

That's  not saying much for them though.

if your cars are fast enough & they handle okay, why do you care how ugly the body looks? Or your paint job either?  :laugh2:  :laugh2:

We ordered 15 of them and Betta Classic said the order was lost. We had to change to a different body as the new season starts Wed. Gatewayslotracing.com

That's unfortunate- Ian has taken good care of me in the past.

 

Just curious what rules you are using?
