Debut at 2014 Hurricane All Star Series....a full heat of 8 LeMan (7 Speed Passion LM1 with one F1 conversion) the whole race was a clean race with no heavy wracking incident....just like the real LeMan racing (except there were no flying CLK incident...). After last night racing, there were like 4-5 more picked up the kits and will join the next round....

Here are some pictures of the ride and video is being upload now.

It was fun kicking Howard's behind yesterday. Car is a lot of fun to drive once set up for the high traction.

I still need to trim body posts and stickers, but it is ready to drop on the track now.

Several videos about Sunday LeMan race......4 of the 8 LM1 were brand new for that race (myself is one) and especially myself, I was doing my best to keep my good looking body still look good looking for the whole day so I was letting almost everyone passing me without getting my body destroyed....and so far the body still look brand new...

Rick's LM1 is the fastest, along with ROB and Kevin's, Eric was the one that has the most consistent lap and still fast...Jimmy's is fast but all 4 of us are running brand new tires without any wear on it.....

As far as I know 21.5, I am not sure what Brett had in his F1 conversion.

Thought I may have had something for Rick with consistency, but to no avail . Now to retire the "Deathmobile" and put on a proper Lemans paint job

All are 21.5.........I am sure if 17.5 will required some extra skill to keep the car not kissing wall or pipe.

As I said before that looks like some real good racing action. Would love to see a demo at the SNowbirds or the TZGP or another carpet event before everybody heads outside and gets thier Vitamin D while they race

Not bad...probably would be a better fit in the LMP Class discussion though.
