These are pics of my brother and I with our Panoz hats. You may recognize Olivier Beretta, Max Papis, Gunnar Jeanette, and David Brabham in the pics.

Thanks for posting. I have a lot of photos and will scan them and post them.

Thanks. I think the toughest part beyond matching colors will be isolating the stripes on the nose and the pinstriping around the cockpit

any rubber tires fit this car yet?

There is only interest at my local track if you could race on rubber only.

Agreed...and you would probably have to go with slicks. The question though, TCS FUN, with f1 rubber is finding a tire that not only fits the LM1 with minimal modification, but also has low enough wear to make it cost effective.

Default LM-1 racing

Had our first heat of four Sunday afternoon!

Never had so much fun racing in a good long while.

We ran 6min quals and an 8min main. None of us broke, with everyone finishing. Little tire wear to even measure, hooked on on green carpet.

What more could you want?

Thumbs down

Got some long run time in on mine this weekend and we will have our first 20m Main next weekend at the UF1 Seattle race @ Timezone 2 raceway.

Mostly kit setup I still need to lower the car a bit as it is a bit pitchy in high speed switchbacks. Other than that just let it run for 20-25mins on the track with Marcos running his 103 hack with 104 rubber. Got a lottle loose towards the end of the run but also was beating up a VTA car during part of the run.

Speeds seemed about perfect with a 21.5 in the car. 17.5 would have been doable but alot more of a handful and not sure really worth much more in the grin factor.

In the pits or on the track people say it looks cool or come up and fondle the car commenting how cool it looks. I did the Orange Arrows livery with decals from Brad.

sounds like fun. At NorCal Hobbies we have been racing 15 min mains with our F1's all summer. its really fun when you get to do a long race, its more like real racing, a race of attrition. i think this class should have long mains as well.

Nice report Difuser...any chance you could go through a "simulated fuel run"?
