I'm really curious to know how the 21.5T LM-1 did compared to the 17.5T touring cars...

Also, if anyone running a 17.5T McAllister Prototypes could compare how the bodies felt on the cars compared to "normal" touring car bodies (like Mazda Speed 6, etc)? Did the better aero make it faster? More stable? More aggressive?

Thanks for the info! That looks like it was a lot of fun!
I called most of the races and the prototype cars were only .1 - .2 tents off touring car times for fast lap. fast lap for the prototype cars was 8.1 sec and one of the guys had his TC running in between heats and went 7.9.

These are touring cars running 17.5T blinky too? So the prototype bodies have a bit of a disadvantage over the regulation touring car bodies, I wonder why...

Looking at them, I'd expect them to have lower overall resistance (so higher top speed), but they might have less downforce? If that's right, it's possible that on a big outdoor track, the advantage might go the other way?
