Very nice...do any of the Audis in the WEC run a flat black? I thought they all were silver and black

They have been running the flat black as a pre-race livery during testing. The one I painted was a rendition of one of the cars that I saw on the Audi website. I hought it looked really nice, and was something different. However, I don't recommend running this livery unless you're alright with the paint getting ground off from the wears of racing it. This paint job was more of a platform for me to test some L.E.D. builds. If you look closely, you can see the position light that I built into the body, in front of the rear tire.

Awesome.

The bodies that come with the Speed Passion LM1 are great. They do take a bit of work to look awesome so anyone with some detail in their paint scheme I can appreciate.

My next body I plan to pay someone to paint and cut :P

Tomorrow is another round of the Hurricane Allstar Series. There's a solid chance we will have two full heats of LeMans!

Hey guys, I absolutely love these cars. Is there anybody here that owns a f103lm and this car? Will this car obviously out perform the tamiya car or are they competitive? Just curious because I have the f103 chassis lm car and I like the speed passion one much more.

Really Nice Mark!

How did you do the black lining? Is the red made vith paint or vinyl/decals?

Looking forward to see it on the track in a couple of month.

Default LM class a requirement at MARCCA track.

We lay down traction for everyone else.

Should have two heats soon...

Looks good Dave!

The ride height on my Lm-1 is 7mm out of box. Want it down to 4mm. Easy to adjust at rear but what the easy's way at front?

Use a longer screw and add shims on top of the spacer between the lower arm mount. I run 4 mm in there and my car ends up around 4.5 mm up front once droop and preload are set.
