Build of the week: it's a Formula 1 race car, vroom-vroom!

Every Monday, Build of the week highlights a unique rig from the web’s most dedicated PC building communities. 

Suchao Modding & Design put out one winner after another. It’s no giant computer gun, but the Formula 1 is exactly what it purports to be, a Formula 1 race car—but a computer. 

It’s an impressive assembly of vehicular handiwork, constructed from custom fiberglass frames, painted with precision, tied together with some shiny metal fittings—and those wheels! Round, rubber, and rad. The end result is the ideal custom case mod, a chassis that easily passes for its concept where the computer melds with the idea effortlessly. The one criticism I have is that I can’t actually drive the darn thing, but with a VR headset and a racing sim I suppose I won’t need to.
