Very interesting Victor, and should preform really well. I hope you can find a way to make them commercially available as I think there is a significant market for a chassis such as this.

Russell's comments, (as always) should be noted as the new rules for Le Mans prototypes comes into effect over the next three years, this will make current cars such as the Audi R8, redundant to a cetain extent. All cars built to the new rules would appear to require much more compact bodies,i.e. "thinner" with more symmetrical look, but with greater ground clearance(or at least the appearance of increased ground clearance), this will be a challenge to manufacturers to try and fit suitable current motor design in ANY configeration. HO motors anyone?
This is being introduced to reduce the ground effect of current cars and prevent "flip over" accidents, such as happened at Le Mans in '99.

As far as I'm aware the only LMP currently running to the new rules is the Nasamax DM139, although several others have been "converted" to sort of comply with the new rules. No Slot manufacturer has yet produced this car!.
