At Toledo or Leisure Hours you could easily have 25-30 cars on the track and still have plenty of room to race. Remember we are talking 3 or 4 man teams so 75-100+ Participants . Not sure I could handle that much driving though, not to mention the wear and tear on the equipment.

That is a fair concern BP. My thinking though is that if there was an event like that (with all those different enduro events, that an individual racer can only enter one class if they are also entered in the LeMans enduro. Each 4 man team would have the one car for their given class (with a 20 car main, it would be 6 cars in each class with two reserve cars to give a nice round number), and then shorten the individual class races to 45 minutes to minimize wear on the different chassis

There is a Pro kit in the works. No ETA at this point, but probably Q1 of 2014. Solara will have more details.

Hi, Attached photo of the Rebellion Lola B12/60 coupe. Thought this would be

@BP Shadow,
Since the car is 1/10th scale, how about 1/10th of a 24 Hour race? The 2.4 Hours of ???

We could do 2.4, but I would like to make it a little longer.

Id be all for a 2.4 hour enduro NutDriver. I think that would be a fine capstone for a weekend festival of onroad RC awesomeness. 45 minute enduro for WGT, USGT, VTA and LMPC and maybe even a double or triple length main for 12th scale too. have all those races on Saturday and 2 day qualifying for the 2.4 hour race where fastest 6 minute time complete with pit stop earns the pole in each class and top 6 4 man teams in LMP, USGT and WGT make the race (plus the next two fastest regardless of class).

Default Grow the Class First!

As this car is creating such a great amount of interest, I started a class thread: LeMans LMP1-200mm Pan Class Discussion.

I'm hoping we can get the WGT and F1 cars currently not running off the shelf and back on the track. Please go add your ideas there. It is still my personal opinion that the LM-1 with body is still the least expensive way into this class.

The quality of the FRP is nice and probably the best I've seen. Proving to be very durable, more so that I would expect from carbon fiber.

I posted this in the LMP1 discussion but I wanted to ask it here since it best fit this segment:

What do you think of having LM1/LMPC serve as kind of an entry level class and have performance markers for racers in order to move to the more open LMP1 class. One Idea I threw out in the other thread was having the track champion (maybe top 3 or 5 in points) promoted to the full P1 class the next season. Ideas?
