Summary

Arguably the most interesting, but certainly the most controversial race car design in years. A clean-sheet design that keeps pace with traditional racecars without using wings, a big engine, or even the usual rectangular footprint. Ben Bowlby explains it better than I can: http://youtu.be/c_INdbXMqsw?t=6m37s

Instructions

Print one body, two front wheels, two rear wheels, two rear wheel spacers, and one steering wheel. The rear wheels should be printed with raft. You'll need 6 pins. The exhaust is kind of a pain to print, you can skip it if you like. The parts are scaled to about 1/20.

No longer a work in progress, rear wheels have been redesigned slightly and a right-side mirrored version of the rear wheel spacer has been added.

Delta1 is a one-piece version scaled for the build platform of a Cupcake (about 1/50).

I haven't printed one of these in 3 and a half years, back when the algorithms for generating supports were quite wasteful and it was really something to be avoided. You might want to turn them on just to keep the tunnels and the underside of the nose from being too droopy.
