Why don't you do some testing once you get that in and built and give us a report. That may give a good idea as to where to start with getting a class rolling for this

My LHS in Chesapeake turned the indoor carpet track into an offroad track (much like Trackside did) so I wont get much of a chance to check it out until outdoor season kicks off in the spring so I look forward to your findings NutDriver

No....LeMan used bigger rims and low-profile tires........to make it look close to the real LeMan class, we have to use FOAM for now.

Rubber tires are testing right now...hopefully there will be rubber tires package release soon from Speed Passion.

Actually with the LMP rules lending themself to closed cockpit coupes in the coming years, going to closed cockpit bpdies would make sense

Maybe when those rubber tires come out ill try one in the wcics. I dont really have any interest in vta but gt silver can looks kinda fun. no weight restriction just rubber tires and 540J motor.

yeah, it looks like it will be fun, especially with the included 3500kv motor. i think 3500kv is 13.5 which should be pretty fast but i think the car can handle it with foam tires. i got the package deal that came with motor and esc.

Where did you buy your car? That package sounds interesting.
Were you planning on running the car 13.5 2s?

rcmart. norcal hobbies in union city california. the track there is very flowing and usually has great grip. I run nitro there, with foam tires and a fast motor, so this car should be dialed as well. i also ran my f103gt there with nitro foams and a fast motor and it was a lot of fun.
