    :)
    Are the edges of the wheel rims sticking out too much ?
    They look wider than the tyres.

    Hmm do the paints have to be accurate to the real car?

    My thought, my hope, is that @ChiefWiggum is almost done with F1 1986. One or two cars are left I believe. I'm hoping that he will then turn his attention to this. I know a 1978 full season would be a massive under taking as there was a lot of custom/modded/one off cars. I would hope that this would spring board Chief's CART 1984 rF1 conversion :)

    ISI had the lisence for the March 86C. Maybe you can get in touch with S397 and see if there is a way to get some data for that car atleast. I think most teams were using that car anyway, so it might make things a bit "easier". Anyway, I am just throwing out some ideas. A great era of NA open wheel racing for sure.

    Ohhhh man!! I hope you go through with this!! I don't know much about 1980s Indycar to be able to make a suggestion.

    The only thing that I know of for sure is the @stdave and the guys over at HSO ( http://historicsimracing.123.st/) have an amazing CART 1988 mod for rF1 and AMS (https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/hso-cart-1988-indycar-world-series.24923/). They also have a great 1973 USAC mod for rF1. That would be a great addition to the rF2 lineup. Chief, I know you are not a conversion guy. I'm not sure if you could talk to them to do a conversion or if scratch building another year would be the route you take.

    HSO also has a 74' USAC mod for rF1, the 73' & 74' USAC Indy mods are well done.

    what do you think about a CART 1985 Mod? Is this a good Choise? I'm not so the expert about Indycars in the 80's.

    HSO has never been too interested in rF2, so I don't think there's "talking to them do a conversion". The day rF2 gets interesting for them, they'll convert.
