Hi ok I have got a lot of emails and pm's on this car or these cars ok. so here it is.
First These will all be D-Drive (Direct Drive) Cars that will all use tripod rear shocks and a T/plate Chassis and one of the active suspensions designs I am working on ok
I am looking to get away from the kingpin loaded spring suspension ok.
I started out making 3 cars - one would be more of a touring car setup of a pancar for GT1 and GT3
Then I wanted to make a Car for P1 and P2 cars with a pan car setup with pan car wheels and tires.
So for the GT3 car it will be 190mm wide you will be able to run touring car bodies and wheels and tires for those of you that want to go that way ok. I wanted to go with 26mm front tires foams and 28mm rears. But some want it with pan car tires.
Next is the GT1 Car it will be 200mm wise and run 200mm bodies I wanted this car to run 28mm front tires and 30mm rears like our touring nitro cars run.
But most again want pan car tires.
Next is P2 Well here I will make a 190mm car This is what the most ask for is 200mm pan cars. to run LMP and Group C and GTP bodies
and P1 will be the same I guess. 200mm car
And the GTP 2WD Belt drive MLP Car with a full active suspension I would like it to be 235mm car. But we will see. maybe 200mm
I guess I was looking at making a car that could also be run in a new racing series Le'mans or American Le'mans R/C Racing series.
It would be based off of the F1 Challange series going on in a 3 to 4 state area down there.
American Le'mans R/C Racing series.
GT3 Cars 190mm Foam 26mm tires front and 30mm tires rear with 190mm bodies only those run in any Le'mans Racing series across the world.
Bodies like corvette Porsche Aston Martin BMW M3 Panoz Esperante GTLM
Ferrari F430GT Lexus IS350 brushless motors 4 cell or brushed motors with 6 cells 3300mah.
GT1 Cars 200mm Front foam tires 28mm and rear 30mm with 200mm
bodies only those run in any Le'mans Racing series across the world
Low Grade or Performance brushless motors with 6cell 3300mah or brushed motor with Lipos But i will get back to you on all of this once I talk with our motor and battery guy's
P2 Cars 200mm Pancar tires Running any LMP Body or Le'mans body. for this class of car. Hi End Brushless or Brushed motors 4200mah or Lipos and voltage to come later
P1 cars 200mm Pancar tires same as above
Unlimited !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bodies must be P1
So let me know here in this thread what you would like to see and reffer to the class of car please ok.
Porsche Reveals 2007 911 GT3 RSR Type 997 for American Le Mans, World GT Racing
Written by: News Wire Atlanta, Ga. – 7/13/2006
Using the full resources of the Porsche engineering staff at its Weissach motorsports facility, and combining the racing technology developed over 50 years of motorsports competition, Porsche has announced the introduction of the new 2007 911 GT3 RSR (type 997) for the American Le Mans Series and other world GT racing venues. The latest version of the most successful racing sports car
in history is based on the street production model 911 GT3 RS (model year 2007) which will be launched in late 2006.
Featuring the body of the 911 GT3 RS, which is based on the 911 Carrera 4, the 911 GT3 RSR has wider rear fenders and rear track to improve performance capabilities over its predecessor. The car has also been developed to fit into the 1,225 kg class, which allows for two inch-wider rear wheels
(14 inches), and part of the added weight has been used to lower the center of gravity. The new 911 GT3 RSR will also improve aerodynamic efficiency by seven percent and body stiffness has been increased by 10%.
“This is not just an update of an existing race car,” said Uwe Brettel, President of Porsche Motorsport North America, the Santa Ana, Calif.,-based subsidiary of Porsche AG which will handle all North American sales for the new car
“We have taken all our production-based racing and sports car
expertise, from the 550 Spyder to the Carrera GT, and all the GT3-R models since 1999, to create the best race car we can build to the existing sports car GT class rules,” said Brettel.
The new car is built in accordance with the 2006 ACO LMGT2 Regulations and the 2006 FIA Article 257 (Technical Regulations for Series Grand Touring Cars).
Brettel noted that more than 250 of GT3-R family of 911 race cars have been sold around the world since the introduction of the 911 GT3 R in 1999, and the car has won hundreds of professional races and championships including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 24 Hours at Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring, and 53 class wins in the American Le Mans Series. In ALMS, the Porsche
teams using the GT3 R/RS/RSR have won the championship six of the series’ seven-year existence.
Employing a 3.8-liter, flat six-cylinder boxer engine, the 911 GT3 RSR delivers 485 hp at 8,400 revs per minute (with two 30.0 mm restrictors). Maximum torque is now 435 Nm at 7,250 rpm.
The 911 GT3 RSR also has many notable changes from its predecessor. The sequential six-speed dog-type transmission gearbox has been redesigned to reduce the drive shaft angle which increases efficiency and improves durability. The brake master-cylinders, clutch master cylinder and pedals have been pre-mounted to a sub-frame, which is then bolted onto the floor to gain stiffness and a lower center of gravity. The redesigned electrical system optimizes serviceability by placing all relevant elements in the immediate vicinity of the driver.
The racing suspension, with McPherson struts in the front and the Porsche multi-link axle at the rear, feature new kinematics and closely corresponds to the configuration of the street-legal 911 GT3 RS. The new ZF-Sachs shock absorbers build up less friction and offer excellent response. The adjustable double coil springs, roll bars and shock absorbers ensure precise tuning to suit each circuit.
The 911 GT3 RSR features a brake system with six-piston fixed brake calipers measuring 380 mm in the front, four-piston fixed calipers measuring 355 mm in the rear
