In the world of road course racing, there is no faster closed wheel vehicle in the world than a Le Mans Prototype. The “LMP” vehicles are competition packed super cars which can withstand 24 hours of abuse all while setting records for speed and performance. JConcepts has packed all the necessary goods into one package with the new L1 body.
The “Layla” body looks impressive with its low-slung appearance and complete chassis coverage. The L1 fits on the Team Associated, Formula 1 RC10F6 along with other popular models such as XRAY and Yokomo. A front chin spoiler starts the design for improved steering response and front-end grip. The L1 rises over the suspension and blends with the tire covers for a sculpted appearance which only JConcepts can deliver.
The closed cock-pit design resembles the LMP1 vehicles of the latest generation. The wrap-around window design and full length rear stabilizing and rollover fin take over as the design focal point. Over the rear tires, the shell drops off to close off the rear fender while a recessed area allows room for the rear wing option. The L1 is loaded with louvers, scoops and fine detailing to ensure not only authentic looks, but dedicated function.
The separate rear adjustable wing is a two-piece design that attaches with included 3mm hardware. The top element of the wing supplies the down-force helping the L1 whisk through the turns and the side stand-offs bring the height to operating level and helps provide that all important stability. Included in each body set, L1 “Layla” decal sheet, two-piece rear wing, three-piece paint mask for wrap-around window, ten-piece 3mm screw and nut hardware. Each body is backed with JConcepts customer support and racing heritage.
Race and event history –
The new body has already been used in competition during the LRP Le Mans Prototype Challenge series in Germany. Drivers reported great success in this experimental class which began as a trial by LRP. The Le Mans Prototype vehicles have become so popular, the complete series includes some 80 events over the course of a season. Now, with the L1 body by JConcepts, the class has a sturdy body for competition and a replacement and durable rear wing option. Drivers report better handling with the L1 body and fitted on a base F1 chassis, the combination of precise chassis engineering and body development is a great compliment to on-road racing.
