Post Modern Le Mans Prototypes

Looks like our discussions yielded the following rules & regs:

Currently --"Modern" is the year 2000+ (that means you may run BMW V-12LMs or R8R Audi Spyders) Cars may be LMP 1 or 2 (or 900 and 675 depending on the year...). Here's the rest taken from our current specs:

Modern Le Mans Prototypes (LMP’s)

Based on cars that ran at LeMans and other World Endurance Championship and American LeMans Series races between 2000 and today.

BASELINE RULES -all classes:
- no magnets
- weight may be added inside the body (not underneath the chassis)
- chassis may be sanded to allow for body float
- only one guide per car
- hard bodies only. no vac formed bodies
- front and rear window glass required
- prototypical wheels required (molded plastic, inserts or machined aluminum wheels)
- rubber or urethane tires only, unless the rules call for a spec tire. no silicone or jel claw tires
- wheels and tires may not be visible when viewed from above (exception for open wheel classes)
- hard interior required. no vac forms. must cover all of the car's inner workings - gears, motor, etc. at a minimum must include 3 dimensional driver figure with head, shoulders, arms and steering wheel.
- the "s" in NCSRA stands for "scale." if you are unsure if a modification is legal you are encouraged as questions or to err on the side of caution and keep the vehicle as close to a scale representation of the real car as possible.

Modern Le Mans Prototypes are a MODIFIED CLASS:

- Ready to Run cars.
Stock body and chassis that came with the body must be used.
Changes to gears, wheels and tires allowed.
Motor type and configuration may be changed.
Guide may be changed but must retain stock position.
Motor list may be provided, including a limited number of readily available stock or near-stock choices based on the class being run.


Le Mans Prototype Specific Rules:

‘Stock’ bodies and ‘Stock’ chassis may switched (i.e. SCX body on Slot.it Chassis)

Motors are limited to published 30,000 rpm limit. Suspect motors may be tested at Tech. Any 'Magnetic Effect' must be minimized in motor placement

If wheels are changed, relevant prototype inserts must be used. No ‘low-rider’ wheel –tire combinations except as provided on stock RTR cars (this does not include the SCX race versions)

NSR, Slot.it, FLY, Scaley or Avant Slot chassis may be used under ‘resin’ or hard plastic bodies. All other rules apply.


Looking forward to a new and exciting class!!!

Best,
Steve

Are you sure you want to keep the motor at 22000 they are supposed to be the fastest prototypes. Can we make it 30k if they think they can handle it or you set on 22000. The reason i ask is because i have a couple of avants a 908 and a porsche sypder i'm trying to get going and i think they have 27k motors stock. Just asking.....

Instead of changing motors simply raise the voltage. This is a "modified" class.

I think my Ninco/Slot.it was ruled OK in another conversation so unless I hear otherwise I'll use that and save some money. Voltage would work but allowing us to keep the stock motor whether it's NSR or Slot.it would help also.

I believe your ninco body is fine as long as it is mounted on a inline slot it chassis. My ninco mercedes was on a anglewinder chassis I need to install a inline into it.
Carter you don't want to race on Red Hill with 11 volts it's already going to be a challenge at 10.

It will be inline with an orange endbell. Nate will you stretch safety nets around the track to keep the cars from crashing to the floor? LOL

Then why does anyone want a 30K motor?

I don't want a 30k but my avant came with a 27K and I don't want to start to change motor with another brand. I don't want to spend on a new motor but I have lots of LMP's it's my favorite so I don't have to race it.

What you don't have homeowner's insurance that will cover my slot car? As I said on another thread just use the stock motor that cme with it. I don't think it will make that big of a difference. If it come's with a 27k leave it. Which car is it?

Default RPM Limits

And this is why we have 'rules' discussions...

OK, first, Dennis --your GT1 is NOT a Le Mans Prototype. So it's the GT1 Rules and they stipulate an in-line orange end-bell or equiv. limited to 22,000k. Your car is fine!

OK, to LMP motor limits -- I am fine with 30K overall. All the races at Black Point will be 10V so maybe with gearing, it might make a diff --but as Nate said --these should be the fastest cars!!!

How many OK with 30K?
