    Been slowly putting together a Swift DB-1. Not in game yet but the modelling is close to being done. Thinking about a Mygale and a 2012 Next Gen Ford to join it. Just for fun at this point.

    It was Swift's first car... basically took over formula ford when it came on the scene in '83. Guys still run them today and compete with Mygales and Van Diemens. Always wanted to drive one so I hope to in rf2.

    Honda got into the FF game last couple years with a nice engine and it's caught on which is why the one has honda stickers on it. May try to do both engines (physics) if it doesn't turn into a retirement project.

    I was hoping someone was working on something like this. Formula Ford's would be great for feels3's Croft circuit when it's released.

    I love small, open-wheeled cars like this so I'm really excited to try the finished product!

    I wish you would have modeled this off the new Ecoboost FF.

    I've actually started the ecoboost car recently. Having trouble getting any dimension however so I haven't gone very far yet... just boxed it out a bit trying to match it up with photos. Not sure I have the motivation to go through camera match process however... I'm stalling until I can get some known dimensions.

    thanks tommy86. Finally found a good enough blueprint so I'm back at it with the 2012 ford. Hopefully will have it join the swift on track. Still just blocking it in for now. Although the wheels and transmission were easy so I got those kinda done. Also doing the Mygale version so the nose is a bit different.

    zuuurrroooommmm... spop, spop. Have no suspension data so not sure what to do there. May base it on older Mygale geometry which may be easier to get.
