On my WGT conversion I bored out the rear bearing inserts to fit metric bearing and used a F104 axle assy. For the front I drilled mounting holes 5mm inboard for the front suspension to get the width right. I used the SAE bearings as they fit the wheels with only minimal play.

I am running F103 wheels and rubber slicks from Pit currently. Haven't tried bolting up the SP foams to see if the offset is similar.

Perhaps a silly question
Can't you use the F103 or F104 steering blocks?
Or the one form the 3racing F109?
You can use the metric bearing then
Also Speedpassion rear axle and the 3racing F113 rear axle are inch size and they can accept the centre nut wheels.

Just built it with what I had on hand. I also wanted to see what the minimal work required was for others who wanted to try it but didn't want to spend for parts.

This topic has caught my attention since "USLMP" was added to the same page that USVTA and USGT rules are located --> http://www.usvintagetransam.com/rules/

I have been participating in USVTA and USGT races for the last 2 years. I have also been racing 1/10 scale rubber tire F1 at my local track. This topic sounds like I could put a really cool Le Mans body on my Tamiya F104 and *WaLa* I have a USLMP car.

I just need clarification on one rule: Max wheel diameter 50mm. Why?

Im not Rick but my guess is that it is to keep with the relatively scale look. With tires for the LM1, at least rubber tires, not currently available it allows for more tire options until those tires can be had comercially

The LM-1 Tires/Rims are those dimensions and the current spec. They are premounted foam. That's why the the obscure notation to the future rubber tires: They don't exist yet.

You can pretty much drop an LMA body right on an F104 or similar wheelbase! The F103 will be short. The SP LM-1 tire set is a direct fit to any metric Tamiya F1 clone; 5mm front axles and 14mm rear hexes.

Those look great! Sports Prototype bodies always fit pan car chassis better than GT bodies. Team Muso have more stuff on their website

Just make sure to switch the front wing for a front bumper on any F1 chassis

I'll be honest, after watching the race this weekend with Rick and the others I think the foams are the way to go, at least on carpet. Perhaps outlaw truing them down past some meaningful diameter.

I agree keep it with foams for Carpet IMO.
