I know this has been a couple moths since you posted this, but I was wondering if you had any bodies left? I am interested in possibly getting two of them. LMK, thanks.

I was the only LMA in a group of RJ Speed bodied LM-1s this weekend. The guys have been practicing a ton and really have a handle on their cars in Madison, WI. I need more quality time on practice day to ever hope to be in the same league. But, I had fun racing again. I was able to run some nice clean practice laps after racing and managed to tune the car to within a half of a second of the lap times of the pack. I'm still a full second off the race winner's average, but there is a lot of rust to knock off.

What track is this? My brother and I ran LMP at yesterday's last Hurricane Race at The Track w/converted F1 chassis and would happily travel for some more LeMans action.

What Chad said. 2841 Index Rd. Madison, WI. Sunday is onroad. Doors open at 8 and racing starts at noon. The track will be open for practice this Sunday after the big event Saturday, but it may only be for practice. We now have at last count 14 separate drivers with LM1s in Madison and one F103 with a group C body. We are averaging about 8 to 10 a week.

One of the door prizes will be an LM-1 with LMA body.

Not sure we'll be able to make this weekend (wish I knew about this sooner) but will absolutely be by shortly for a standard race meet. Is it worth checking a few days ahead of time to make sure there will be a full main or is the average consistent?

hello guys
i broke my rear wing on my only crash in a outdoor practice

Am i the only one finding this wing is too fragile ?

Is there a way to replace it without buying an entire new body ?

Thanks

The main is full. Normally top eight to ten. If everyone shows we have A and B with 2 bumps.

How do you adjust the tweak on this car? Did the Old school method of lifting from center of front and back center of chassis.

Lifting from the front the left front lifts well before the right front. Lifting from the back the right rear lifts well before the left.

This doesn't make sense to me based on how I would have adjusted for the front would be opposite for fixing the back.

Also the car was traction rolling on hard right handers, but not left turns which were even harder than the right turns.

Hope this all makes sense.

Figured out the issue, with the stock plastic parts, the battery holder / pod brace assembly is keyed for the posts, which the instructions of course don't tell you. While I was at it I replaced the set screws for the springs with slightly longer screws to stiffen it up a touch. I attached the posts properly to the brace first and then the chassis. Once I did this it only took a slight adjustment to dial in the tweak. Before it was off a ton which would explain the traction rolls.

Really wish the instructions were better on this car, it is possible for even experienced builders to miss small items like this that absolutely kill the handling of the car.

Right now it's only available with the body. You must have been flying. Need heard anyone destroy a wing.
