Solara, is the pre order kit called lm-a and the pro kit lm-1? Keep seeing those two names so I wasn't sure
The chassis called LM-1 (by Speed Passion)

The body is called LM-A (by Speed Power)

It can't happen soon enough. I'm dying to try one.

Thats why we do have the optional motor mount that can mount SILVER CAN or BLACK CAN motor.........those are the spec power supply over ASIA like Hong Kong and Japan....

F1 with 21.5...indoor and outdoor, already proved it is a good motor of choice. And it is with rubber tires of course...

Since the LM1/LeMan are running on foam, I think we can give a little more power to it, with the much bigger and more downforced body...I think 17.5 is a good choice.

We have tested 13.5 with it at RC Addict over Thailand....it works great with full traction sprayed. Not so good after rain.....and it was using blinky software with kv limiter. (over there, they forced all the blinky race running without sensor wire...so no timing on motor and esc applied). Also, they are running 13.5 with GYRO on steering.....that can really put down some gear on the car and it was as quick as 13.5 touring with blinky....

Somewhere in this planet earth already selling....

The left box is the LM-A body, the right box is the LM-1, both boxes will be shipped for a full package....

1 thing is good about the LM-A box, it has handle on it and it will fit the whole LM1 or any TC.....good carrying case.

That's awesome! !

One more question. Judging by the first pics the bodies are the same right? If so do they have options for which decal or scheme you go for? I kind of like the shell one with their decals just not sure if there are different decal sheets for the included body or any separate ones.

Solara, will the tires be able to be mounted on regular 12 mm hex to true the tires down?

I'm pretty sure that Solara said that they'll be 14mm hexes (a al F1) for the rears. Not sure on the fronts, but I expect that they'll have internal bearings, not a hex.

Need to use the F1 arber.....actually, I will have to find out how to true because so far I have ran about 3 sets of foams and I have not yet truing any of them...

These tires came with the car are pre-trued and ready to go....the ride height adjustment on the LM1 can adjusted the car to run ON THE RIM if you choose to...so you just need to worry about the gearing for the roll out and you can choose to run the foam to the rim....

Yes, front will run the bearings....just like F1 tires. One thing I know I used to deal with the foams on F103 and F104....I actually use the Hudy TC arber, then mount the rear left side wheel adaptor from the F103/F104, then mount the rear foams and true....that works perfectly. And I think this can also be done on LM1, using the wheel adatpr on the car....

But like I said..tires are pre-trued and race ready, and I have yet to true any tires, yet.....

with a spec LM1 class, youd probably want to have handout systems (I think there was a thread about some spec ESC or something a year ago or so) so that tracks could run the class and not turn it into a motor/ESC war that plagued many spec classes
