    Inspired by the Formula Vee racing series, I present to you the Formula Bee racecar, built using autobello components.

    The front suspension is an unmodified twin trailing arm suspension pulled straight out of the Autobello, with the rear being a swing axle design with "zero-roll" suspension inspired by a lot of modern Formula Vee designs.
    This results in some fairly interesting handling characteristics making this lightweight car a challenge to drive.

    The drivetrain is straight out of the autobello, but has been flipped around for better weight distribution. While it is not very powerful, the very low weight allows for a fairly zippy car when using the correct engine mods.

    The chassis is a simple tube frame chassis with a separate nosecone, allowing for a very light weight under 500kg.

    This mod is of dev quality, love the detail and car in general. My only complain is that it's way too sturdy, it's really hard to damage the body of the car, it's almost always unscathed after crashes. Hope this changes in a next version!

      Formula Vees (which this is based on), are very simple tube chassis race cars. They don't really have any of the fancy crash structures that you'd see on most carbon monocoque single seaters.

      If you do find a decent picture don't hesitate to post it in the mod's thread, but most of what I've been able to find were tweaked chassis (which can happen with this mod).

    Good job but it's impossible to drive with this.

    Brilliant mod, but is it possible to add a turbocharger option, and can you update it to the PBR update? But I love racing through italy on this!

      There's a few things I want to fix before posting a new update, but don't worry it's already using PBR materials on my end.

    The crashing is a bit weird but other than that, this is a very good mod.
