  1. Re: Why do all le mans cars look the same

    Yep.
    they have very strict design rules.
    All cars have to be a certain length, width, and height, and weight I believe.
    Not to mention the engine size.

    As an engineer with restrictions, you try and build the best balanced car with light weight, good aerodynamics...and this design here give it all.
    Not to mention these cars are turbo and intercooled so they need the air intakes..not to mention the radiatiors need it too!

  2. Re: Why do all le mans cars look the same

    They don't look the same at all !!

    The LMP 900 and LMP 675 look the same.

    LM GTP are closed cars.

    LM GT and LM GTS cars almost look like the stock cars on which they're based on.

    I believe the guy means in the approximate same classes =P

    may be , but he has written "all Le Mans cars" , in my mind that includes all the categories.

  7. Re: Why do all le mans cars look the same

    Hehehehe..the F1GTR was slower due to the gear ratio..and aerodynamics. To prevent the engine from blowing or damage..and to prevent the car from sliding out of control..the drivers were instructed not to push as hard..keeping the revs @ a max of like 4000rpm on top gear.
    As with aerodynamics...more downforce = more friction = less speed.
    Simple as that...and yes..there are also other little factors that all contribute.

  8. why post this car with absolutely no information to follow it?

    why does supercars.net do this?
     
  9. Re: why post this car with absolutely no information to follow i

    So people who do know stuff about the car can submit it to SC.net. Also, they've provided lots of nifty pictures for the kiddies here.<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. Re: No Chance!?

    With that strong block and 5V per cylinder, I dont doubt it either.<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: No Chance!?

    With the turbo inline 4, should be around 520bhp going on the Le Mans information I have.<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. Re: No Chance!?

    I'm willing to bet that this makes less than 500hp.

    Simply because the LMP900 cars are only making 600 or so, at best.
    This car, with 550 hp?? The power:weight would crush an 900 car.

    450 would place the power:weight ratio at about the same level, and is a more likely figure.<!-- Signature -->

    LMP 900 and LM GTP cars develop something like 650hp.
     
  14. Re: No Chance!?

    Apperantly its got a damn good chance, it was the next fastest thing at Sebring behing the R8. Read it in MT.<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. MG Lola EX257 vs BMW V12 LMR vs Audi R8 vs Others

    which are the better car of Le Mans Protoypes??<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. Re: MG Lola EX257 vs BMW V12 LMR vs Audi R8 vs Others

    do you read any other posts??? they aren't in the same class! <!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Re: MG Lola EX257 vs BMW V12 LMR vs Audi R8 vs Others

    What ??

    The LMR was in the class than the R8 is.

    I'd choose "others" , particularly the 905LM and the GT-One.

    These two cars are still faster than the R8.
     
  18. Re: MG Lola EX257 vs BMW V12 LMR vs Audi R8 vs Others

    ok ok!!!
    sorry...
    I don know a lot about LM Race.

  19. Re: MG Lola EX257 vs BMW V12 LMR vs Audi R8 vs Others

    Your thread isn't stupid at all.

    The categories are:
    LMP 900
    LMP 675
    LM GTP
    LM GTS LM GT.
     
  20. Re: MG Lola EX257 vs BMW V12 LMR vs Audi R8 vs Others

    Not a dum thread.
    There are many classes in the LeMans.
    GT3, GT2, GT1, LMPs (ranges from 500 to 900 I think)

    Lots of different cars..but it all comes down to mechanics, drivers, and weather =P

    Please , don't post when you don't know what you're talking about !!

    GT1 , GT2 and GT3 DON'T EXIST AT LM !!

    LMPs are 675 and 900 , THAT'S ALL.
     
  22. Re: MG Lola EX257 vs BMW V12 LMR vs Audi R8 vs Others

    i wish people would stop talking about le mans when they don't even have a clue about it!
     
  23. Re: No Chance!?

    lol..TRD pikes peak is like quad turbo or like 2 50psi turbos and no restrictions whatsoever I think =P

    As for the S4 it runs on a 2.7 Bi-turbo V6 if I remember correctly.

    It's the RS4 , not the S4.
     
  25. Re: No Chance!?

    The S4 runs the same 2.7 litre V6, Cosworth did some head work and they put bigger turbos on the RS4. Probably better exahust and intake and all that crap too. But the main diff is the heads.<!-- Signature -->
