Hello,

 

Got this Formula K car in the mail the other day, thought I would share.  Sounds really good on a 9V battery!  I love the look.

That's pretty nice Mike.   Is it small enough to actually race with another HO car?

 

How about a custom body 1/32 version

Nice 1/32, Matt.  Yes, it's actually about the size of or just smaller than a Tjet.  Looks good and scale!

Hello, speedynh, not sure, I haven't track tested it yet. I need to clear out some space for my own home track.

Thanks for posting the link Mike!

Very cool, Jim Clark was my favorite non American driver, and I was very upset when he lost his life in the Formula 2 race back in 1968. 

And thank YOU for the photos! Enjoy! -- Ernie :>)
