Badi, how did you come up with the measurements for the suspension?

It's an awesome project.

Yes,

I have some parts already printed, just need to find the time to post. Fitments have not been a problem, they have worked well.

I measured other Formula 1 cars and compared pictures to check if they were accurated and in the end it was made by comparision with pictures.

It is just difficult to assemble without glue, but you can check. Everything will be fine.
