I was curious about the dimensions of typical (for real) LMP cars. Turns out that the Audi R10 LMP car is 2,000mm wide, 4,650mm in length, and 1,030mm in height. The scale width is 83.3mm by dividing by 24. So, our new rule of limiting slot car bodies at 84mm looks very good in my opinion, scale wise. The Red Fox body is 82mm wide in the rear and is 80mm wide in the front. 

 

Also, another point is that the race car maintains the front tray, so we can not let that be cut away. There is a very good trim line on the Red Fox Audi R10 which clearly maintains the front tray.

 

I purchased 2 of these bodies from Bill Pinch; painted them in red and silver; and mounted 1 of them. These bodies look really great; lots of detail. I trimmed the first body on the trim line at the sides and just below the trim line in front, leaving the trim line barely visible. I punched the holes for the body pins with the bottom edge of the body flush with the bottom of the chassis. Here are some pics. The P/N is RFSC33.

How can you say scale and have no front wheels? Lol

In my book 2 wheels is a motorcycle.

I see front wheels......

I am really really disappointed here. 209 views and all I get are complaints about front wheels (or the lack of) from Mr. Evil. Nothing on my crappy paint job or the fact that the edge of the front number sticker is not stuck down.  :D

Yea. Here is another amazing scale thing. The real race car is 1,030mm high which is 42.9mm (scale wise). The top of the rear wing is 43mm high from the tech plate! How's that for scale. Please, do not applause.

Doc, depending on your rule set, on several different bodies, I have been known to cut the splitter off at the back edge to get more rake on the front end. I also leave on the tail pieces behind the rear wheels. It allows for better airflow out the tail of the body...

Nice to see. That is a common body in our local modern chassis series - the OCC.

Just so Doc feels appreciated, that body is as ugly as the south end of a dog walking north.

 Better?

We had some issues during tech with racers trimming this body above the trim line. And we had one person argue that it was OK to cut the entire front splitter (tray) away. So I have a couple comments:

1) For this body and others like it, you can not cut the front tray off, period.

2) You must cut this body and others like it below the trim line in front so as to maintain 1/16" (0.0625") turn-down. 

 

The LMP body shown above has a turn-down that measures 0.080" and the trim line is still visible along the entire front of the tray. Furthermore, to kill the myth that too much turn-down will prevent you from winning a big race is hogwash. The pictured car won the opening LMP race in the FSCS. I am a huge fan of the Red Fox bodies. They look great with awesome detail.

 

You might be able to see the trim line in the pic below, or not.
