1170 kilograms is far too heavy for a 2014 Le Mans Prototype; the regulations stipulate a minimum of 870 kilograms for LMP1-H cars, not including the driver. So you could extract a lot more speed by making it weight 950 or 960 kilos instead.

Oh OK, I thought I'd already changed the weight in the setup but I guess I forgot. The Aichi on the previous page has been updated to 950 kg

After a long hiatus, I've picked up where I left off of the Gurney Eagle Weslake. I'm having trouble getting the latest version of SD working (on a piece of crap laptop I've got.) I've got a working version of SD 2.1 on an old Windows desktop, I may just have to use that for testing and setup.

Looks fantastic! I love these historic cars. If I ever get back to track making, I want to do the old Can-Am circuits.

What troubles are you having?

OK, here's what I've been working on for quite a while now. It's funny, I'm not really a big NASCAR fan, but for some reason, I fell in love with these early 70's stock cars. I watched a bunch of old films on YouTube and got inspired to make them. Here's a test video I made some time back. I think I've got them balanced and running somewhat realistically.
