Hi ok I have got a lot of emails and pm's on this car or these cars ok. so here it is.


First These will all be D-Drive (Direct Drive) Cars that will all use tripod rear shocks and a T/plate Chassis and one of the active suspensions designs I am working on ok
I am looking to get away from the kingpin loaded spring suspension ok.

I started out making 3 cars - one would be more of a touring car setup of a pancar for GT1 and GT3

Then I wanted to make a Car for P1 and P2 cars with a pan car setup with pan car wheels and tires.

So for the GT3 car it will be 190mm wide you will be able to run touring car bodies and wheels and tires for those of you that want to go that way ok. I wanted to go with 26mm front tires foams and 28mm rears. But some want it with pan car tires.

Next is the GT1 Car it will be 200mm wise and run 200mm bodies I wanted this car to run 28mm front tires and 30mm rears like our touring nitro cars run.
But most again want pan car tires.

Next is P2 Well here I will make a 190mm car This is what the most ask for is 200mm pan cars. to run LMP and Group C and GTP bodies

and P1 will be the same I guess. 200mm car

And the GTP 2WD Belt drive MLP Car with a full active suspension I would like it to be 235mm car. But we will see. maybe 200mm

I guess I was looking at making a car that could also be run in a new racing series Le'mans or American Le'mans R/C Racing series.

It would be based off of the F1 Challange series going on in a 3 to 4 state area down there.


American Le'mans R/C Racing series.

GT3 Cars 190mm Foam 26mm tires front and 30mm tires rear with 190mm bodies only those run in any Le'mans Racing series across the world.
Bodies like corvette Porsche Aston Martin BMW M3 Panoz Esperante GTLM
Ferrari F430GT Lexus IS350 brushless motors 4 cell or brushed motors with 6 cells 3300mah.

GT1 Cars 200mm Front foam tires 28mm and rear 30mm with 200mm
bodies only those run in any Le'mans Racing series across the world
Low Grade or Performance brushless motors with 6cell 3300mah or brushed motor with Lipos But i will get back to you on all of this once I talk with our motor and battery guy's

P2 Cars 200mm Pancar tires Running any LMP Body or Le'mans body. for this class of car. Hi End Brushless or Brushed motors 4200mah or Lipos and voltage to come later

P1 cars 200mm Pancar tires same as above
Unlimited !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bodies must be P1

So let me know here in this thread what you would like to see and reffer to the class of car please ok.


Porsche Reveals 2007 911 GT3 RSR Type 997 for American Le Mans, World GT Racing


Written by: News Wire Atlanta, Ga. – 7/13/2006



Using the full resources of the Porsche engineering staff at its Weissach motorsports facility, and combining the racing technology developed over 50 years of motorsports competition, Porsche has announced the introduction of the new 2007 911 GT3 RSR (type 997) for the American Le Mans Series and other world GT racing venues. The latest version of the most successful racing sports car in history is based on the street production model 911 GT3 RS (model year 2007) which will be launched in late 2006.

Featuring the body of the 911 GT3 RS, which is based on the 911 Carrera 4, the 911 GT3 RSR has wider rear fenders and rear track to improve performance capabilities over its predecessor. The car has also been developed to fit into the 1,225 kg class, which allows for two inch-wider rear wheels (14 inches), and part of the added weight has been used to lower the center of gravity. The new 911 GT3 RSR will also improve aerodynamic efficiency by seven percent and body stiffness has been increased by 10%.

“This is not just an update of an existing race car,” said Uwe Brettel, President of Porsche Motorsport North America, the Santa Ana, Calif.,-based subsidiary of Porsche AG which will handle all North American sales for the new car.

“We have taken all our production-based racing and sports car expertise, from the 550 Spyder to the Carrera GT, and all the GT3-R models since 1999, to create the best race car we can build to the existing sports car GT class rules,” said Brettel.

The new car is built in accordance with the 2006 ACO LMGT2 Regulations and the 2006 FIA Article 257 (Technical Regulations for Series Grand Touring Cars).




Brettel noted that more than 250 of GT3-R family of 911 race cars have been sold around the world since the introduction of the 911 GT3 R in 1999, and the car has won hundreds of professional races and championships including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 24 Hours at Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring, and 53 class wins in the American Le Mans Series. In ALMS, the Porsche teams using the GT3 R/RS/RSR have won the championship six of the series’ seven-year existence.

Employing a 3.8-liter, flat six-cylinder boxer engine, the 911 GT3 RSR delivers 485 hp at 8,400 revs per minute (with two 30.0 mm restrictors). Maximum torque is now 435 Nm at 7,250 rpm.

The 911 GT3 RSR also has many notable changes from its predecessor. The sequential six-speed dog-type transmission gearbox has been redesigned to reduce the drive shaft angle which increases efficiency and improves durability. The brake master-cylinders, clutch master cylinder and pedals have been pre-mounted to a sub-frame, which is then bolted onto the floor to gain stiffness and a lower center of gravity. The redesigned electrical system optimizes serviceability by placing all relevant elements in the immediate vicinity of the driver.

The racing suspension, with McPherson struts in the front and the Porsche multi-link axle at the rear, feature new kinematics and closely corresponds to the configuration of the street-legal 911 GT3 RS. The new ZF-Sachs shock absorbers build up less friction and offer excellent response. The adjustable double coil springs, roll bars and shock absorbers ensure precise tuning to suit each circuit.

The 911 GT3 RSR features a brake system with six-piston fixed brake calipers measuring 380 mm in the front, four-piston fixed calipers measuring 355 mm in the rear

I would prefer a ball pivot rear suspension like the CRC Pantoura. It never needs any attention. Tweak is held very well. The tripple springs on the rear shocks will duplicate the function of the T-bar in a better way.

Thanks John
I just used the word T/Plate because most know it. But it was to let them know it would not be a full suspension car like my F206F1 cantilever suspension that will be used on our GTP/LMP 235mm Car.

ALMS... nice idea. Now all you have to do is convince everyone to run more than 5 minutes...

Hey Marty,

Everything looks really good. You know we like running F1 but after the real ALMS race at Miller Motorsports park here we have added two new series under the SLCF1 Racing Association umbrella. Our 1/10th scale 2h 45m Petit Lemans race in October was very cool. I'm proud to say that 2WD cars (GT2 with silver can Mabuchi) took the podium over the 4WD cars (GT1 with any brushed motor... mostly 19T checkpoint). The 2WD is very efficient easily running another 10-15 minutes per pack. One 2WD car pitted only 6 times using 3800's for a 2h 45m race running over 33 actual miles on a 433' track with 15 corners. My teammate and I came in 3rd with a motor change that cost us 11 minutes in the pits. We were also lucky to have Bruce "Doc" Hickman from Wisconsin and Mark Hinckley from Cali come and race with us. Their entries made it officially a national event.

Everyone should experience endurance racing. Please feel free to contact me if you need guidelines to follow as we have the .pdf's ready to go. Marty is helping to lead the future of r/c racing with his ideas. ALMS (www.americanlemans.com) is what we should be doing with AMB decoders that can count 20 cars at a time.

I really believe that you're heading down the right road. 2WD is a pure driving experience that no racer can be complete without. We're making headway with the Porsche Cup class (Any 2WD 190mm chassis running TC tires foam/rubber and the 540 Mabuchi) with 11 chassis rolling already with another 3 promised entries for next year.

Thanks for sponsoring SLCF1. In our F1 series your F201SCF chassis took the championship this year at Williams and I was able to finish 2nd with my version MLP chassis (stiffer and lighter than the 3racing which warps over time). Thanks again.

The website is coming together nicely too. Drop me an email when you get a sec.

Hi all well we got things working again and the bugs out of it OLI your car should be there in the next day or so. I think the storm slowed it down as well. I will finish the last 4 cars this week and ship them every thing is done just need to run the top decks when I was running them last week we had Problems again but it is worked out now.

I would like to let you all know Fred AKA RC OLD MAN is not with MLP as of Sunday and he is going on to do his own thing. I wish him the best!

Hey Ben thanks I will be sending you 3 cars to test next year for your new class check them out and if you or others want they can buy the ones I send or order new ones (they will be in 190mm with touring car wheels and tires with a full shock front suspension and the rear tri pod pan car setup both 190 and 200 mm cars will run this I have also set out to have some micro shocks made and will also add a active or true front suspension to the front of our LMP Cars! these will all be D-Drive cars

RC Driver has emailed me and would like to test our cars so I will be sending them one of each come the first of the year.

We will be taking the F206F1 and the F207F1 and making one car - we had problems with the drive setup on the F206F1 melting diffs and on the F207F1 we fixed it also the batteries were move to the rear and the motor to the front center and this has worked out better.

If you ordered one of these you will get the new car ok. if there is a problem with that email me ok.

We will no longer offer chassis kits for any car! all cars will be complete rollers only!

I am working on a motor deal if it works out the motors will not cost us a penny! True Sponsor Ship in the works there!

He's alive! You dropped off the planet. I'm glad all is well.

I need to send you something we've been brewing here in the 801 (nerd speak for Utah). It falls in line with some of your current projects. The Porsche Cup class is starting to blow up. We have had only the 2h 45m race with the class and there are 14 cars/drivers out there already We are going to move much of the news and web info here to rctech.

F1 is still going strong and that makes me happy after 8 years of organizing and running the show.

We patiently await this new chassis. Sounds awesome. 2WD is back and I am loving it. Driving the F103GT with just the 540 motor was such a cool feeling. I really felt like I was driving again with the car sliding, drifting, and opposite lock being applied frequently... so much fun to drive. I've been spoiled with the easy to drive/correct 4WD. So from now on it's 2WD just for the thrill. Plus it takes so much less motor to drive it on the limit.

Talk to you soon.

Yes We are Back !!!!! And we have a full line of cars coming for 2007.

I would say the ALMS Seires Cars will be a big hit! with its full suspension and 2wd D-Drive cars. I will be making cars just for this type of racing.

And yes Ben it puts the driving fun back into racing

Here is how it will be.

each car will have rear hub adapters to mount TC Wheels and tires foam or rubber. or you can remove the adapters and run ture pan car foams on the rear.

Then for the front we have gesigned a full floting suspension with shocks (no more kingpin loaded springs) there will be spacers in place above and below the knuckle here you will be able to adjust your front axle height between the arms.

As for the Front wheels and tires I make a adapter or hex hub with a bearing in it for our DF1 car and this will work here on this car for TC Tires and wheels
You will be able to run pan car tires as well.

These Cars will come in 190mm 200mm and 235mm I will make a Chassis to fit each bodied cars fit perfect! Much like the HPI 68 Camaro with its 200mm front and 215mm rear! This car looks to be a big thing here in IL. the Vintage racing series cars.

So with this and the New F207F1 and 2007 Champ car our X10P4 touring car and the New Electric 4x4 Buggy
