If you want another 24 hour race find a club that is prepared to organise and run it, then approach Schumacher about sponsorship.
Im well aware how it works.

And approaching hpi is a tad different from going to schumacher as hpi are their own entity in terms of distribution and manufacturing.

I was looking closely at the pictures to see if I was missing seeing a side damper in the rear-must be optional. Also, in regards to body choices, since Audi only raced against themselves this year it seems another body choice will not be necessary-LOL!
The side roll damper is there....just not the aluminum version like the SP-1 or the pro kit, but the plastic one still work and it is included.

For the rubber you can still find some f103 tires who will fit or sure ! (f104 front and f103 rear should be nice for the proportion

do you plan to sell the bodys alone ?
Yes...body can be purchase separately...however, our body is unique in size and it is not fitting the typical WGT chassis. It will work on any F1 chassis but only using the SP special off set foam tires...

And we are working with PARDUS and others and testing on some special rubber tires for the LM-1.

And even more yes! was thinking about this last night, rubber tyres for this, operating in the same vain as touring cars, running rubbers for this car will really open up the potential of having a LeMan prototype based class in BRCA, EFRA etc etc

Beautiful car, but I'm for sure not spending a cent until those rubber tires are listed and available. I hate dealing with foams.

Not exactly sure, but F103 rubber should be the correct offset for a 200mm car.

You hate having traction ? You hate driving a consistent car ?
But I would like to see rubber tires for this car , because foams cut as small as they need to be wouldn't look the part.

Ya, just use the wider 103 rims. Pre-order started already. We should get limited stock by the end of October.

No....LM-1 is almost 200mm wide. Current F1 rear rubber tires and rim will only extend to as far as 190mm....10mm are very big increase in offset.
