I always wonder, what is the "formula" for these LMP cars. I guess it's any LMP body but what kind of chassis? What kind of motors are employed? Maybe these are retro-chassis LMP's with 16d motors.

This covers the "formula" pretty well - http://slotblog.net/...xi-set-up-help/

Just wanted to reach out to experienced LMP racers. We may be starting a flexi class using JK-MB motors on the flat track. I notice almost all bodies raced by your group to be Red Fox LMP bodies. Is this local preference or performance? We are considering a body rule and we aren't sure if the bodies (between and among manufacturers) really make that much difference. Thanks!!!

Mark.....not sure if many of that crew are online so I'll give .02 worth until some of them reply. The Red Fox bodies are FTMP made for higher powered cars like GT-12 and up. Having raced with them on that track, the bodies can even overpower the H7 to an extent. IMO........with a MB, they'd be almost like wing cars. If that's what ya want.....all good. There are differences in the RF bodies and they can sometimes be difficult to get.

 

IMO again, I think a good solution would be the more classic styles of LMP/GT-1 bodies from JK. There are probably close to a dozen that are still made, they are available, and pretty comparable. You'd have to make up a list b/c JK has a few newer ones that wouldn't fit in with the old ones but there are plenty of choices. JK also has pre-paints of most of them and very authentic replica decal sets as well.

Jim, thanks for the insight! I didn't realize there are levels of LMP bodies. Are there other (other than Red Fox) FTMP bodies offered? I obviously need to read the fine print on the label - except there isn't any! We will experiment a bit with the bodies and determine everyone's preference. The design of the spec class was to attract more flat class participants by making the car as user friendly as possible. The motor chosen is inexpensive, runs a long time and is actually plenty fast for the flat track. I learned that with my Retro F1. It's an excellent motor!

In the making the flat track easy criteria, the FTMP may be the ticket. Or it may be deemed a "not going to order those" bodies where the JK may be acceptable. You just never know! There is a random factor that must be recognized! The MB motor is already controversial since it's sealed, can't be repaired, and that feature makes it generally unacceptable. We don't race any sealed motor classes for that reason. But hey, I may be naive but I'm proposing the MB motor since the power curve is so terrific for this application.

I'd say that For The Most Part.......... :) ...........you are spot on in your motor choice. I mean seriously, who there besides Wolfie and possibly you is any kind of motor builder? And....who cares besides Wolfie? With the MB motor in one of the new crop of flexis, and one of the JK bodies, you could easily see laps in excess of .5-.7 sec faster than the fastest retro F-1s with the same motors. That means roughly 5.8 - 6.0 sec laps and probably better. Do you need to go faster than that? If so, the high downforce RF bodies will get you another .2 - .4 but that won't make it any easier on the mid pack racer, it'll just make the few faster guys even better.

 

The way that a lower powered car drives with a high downforce body is not exactly a can 'o corn for the mid pack driver like Eric for instance. While that level driver may think that the car "handles better" actually, they'll crash more b/c the car gets pretty critical like an on/off switch. I'd encourage you to go to the JK website and check out those bodies in their catalog section. There are a ton of them and most are pretty comparable with possibly only the last 4-5 at the end of the list that are newish styles that would offer any significant advantage. Most of them have a nice picture that you can see by clicking on the part number.

 

Remember too that the RF bodies are not that easy to get sometimes and the dealer will have to shop several distributors to find them which our guy is not generally prone to doing. Even then.....it'll be spotty.

If you are looking for a "field" of bodies, I suggest the JK LMP bodies. They are all similar in performance and have a variety of models to choose from. Jim's insight to the RF bodies is good. At one point we were going to go with the JK bodies as the "spec" for LMP at BP, but somehow got turned around back to the RF. They do provide a lot more downforce, but the JK bodies can be just as fast with a properly set up chassis. I suggest the JK bodies, especially if you are going with slower motors. The RF bodies may actually slow down cars with slower motors.

 

YMMV

Thank you all for the insight on the bodies!  Sounds like JK is the ticket for our purposes.
