Still waiting on:

What parts are you looking for? I have a healthy stock of most of the carbon reenforced parts

Brad,

I need to contact you re: some parts. Do you have the red stuff I've seen for the LM-1?

@Border R/C,
If you have working "position lights" on that car, then it would be perfect! Outstanding job. I'm jealous.

Lower pod plate, rear pod brace, top pod brace/shock mount and front upper plate/battery keeper. I know the lower and top are available for the pod, but rear brace has been out of stock for a while. I could use a could extra sets of tires too.

Has anyone considered running the USLMP rules, as seen on the www.USVintageTransAm.com site? Looks like they need to clarify the tire rule, but the rules look good to me.

Most of the "LM1" classes out there are based on the www.USVintageTransAm.com rules with minor exclusions. As far as I know the only "out of box" chassis that fits within these specs is the SP LM1. Check out this thread http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...iscussion.html for some conversions or prototypes that fit the USLMP specs.

In my opinion the rubber tire rule is a joke, considering there is no current production rubber tire designed to fit these chassis types. The wear on the foams is really low even on 100*+ black top with tire sauce soaked in for 30mins+. I'll have to double check against the new foams I have but wear is maybe 1.5mm max wear after 35mins of qualifying and racing with no chunking! I haven't ran carpet yet, however I have read that people are 30+ lipo packs into their first set of foams on indoor carpet tracks.

I like that!

This class should be a hit be me locally this winter, I live in the snow belt. We've got a couple carpet guys who have bought them already and it's the middle of summer. Woo hoo! They are a blast to drive.

I like the way the nose and center section look on the new body. Any shots of the back side?
