Due to budgetary problems and global warming (I think) the rules for this year's Formula 15 season restricts participants to use only 15 pieces. Unfortunately due to this restriction the most important piece, the driver, has been sacrificed. As the cars are going nowhere without the driver the teams have focused on aesthetics rather than function and strength. There are few single stud connections which would not normally be accepted but compromises had to be made somewhere ;).
If you can, you can add a driver. My entry had me worried and Sam said it was cool because they were just for show parts. He's only looking for the vehicle, unless the scale can have a driver and it's possible and it is added? I don't know. I haven't done much in the group, so I don't know what questions have or have not been answered.
Thanks guys. Getting it down from 28 (my F1 wides) to 16 pieces was tricky but losing the last piece was very tough, then the solution presented itself. Unfortunately I had to lose the upside down rear wing I am still pleased with the result.
