Vintage Indy 500

I’ve been looking at Tether Car Racing and it has got me thinking about building a model of an Indy 500 car.

I’m thinking about something around the 1950’s era. Although I like the tether cars I’m thinking that my car may be radio controlled.

Inspiration:

Just been looking around at tyres and they look difficult to buy. Will do some more digging and add a note here.

Engines: the initial idea was to use an authentic tether car type engine, but must admit that I want to run this as a radio control car and display it, so based on this electric would be cleaner. However, there is still an urge to use a single cylinder 2-stroke to get the look.
