Back in 1994 I had one of these.
The chassis was used, but in a job lot of RC stuff there was a brand new body parts kit, so I built it up.
Shortly after, a friend of mine got into model rockets with solid fuel jet engines.
During a night of "intoxicants" we cooked up an idea for a rocket car.
The Martini F2 was duely fitted with a solid fuel rocket engine . . . . .
It didn't go well, and the F2 car caught fire in a big way and was melted.
In 2008 I managed to score another one of these off eBay (super cheap!) and it now sits on the shelf. It eased my conscience a little, after destroying such a mint example. However I still have an urge to graft a solid fuel jet engine to it. I think I know what went wrong last time . . . . .
