I am building a F1 RC car 1/4! What do you think ?

Post

Hello Gentlemen,
my name is Firas and I am a mechanical engineer from Lebanon. I presented my final project at university in 2016 the basic study of construction of a RC Formula 1 car scale 1/4. The project was stopped from mid 2017 till end of 2019 and it was resumed at the end of 2019.
Basically it was a fiber glass car and simulator cockpit but due to not having access to a big place for building or CNC machine to have a very detailed cockpit and bodywork, this idea was dropped and it was replaced by the idea of a 3D printed car and cockpit. So the work was resumed again and I bought a professional 3D printer and continued working on the design and building of the car.
You can follow my work on my blog at https://firasf1dream.wordpress.com and for more pictures of daily updates you can follow my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/phoenixf1p. Your support will be much appreciated and to make my page known more :)
It would be great to know your opinion about my work on my project, all comments are welcome. Good ones for support and not very good ones for making things better :)

that's weird, I have no idea why it wouldn't work, many have visited it without any problem, did you try a vpn or something or clear your cashes ?
