I dont know if many of you know who Alless is, but he is a modder who has done a lot of work, I believe we may even be using one or two of his cars. But, he has recently finished work on the R15

Any chance we can convince him to lend us his model to add to the P cars?  :bowdown:  :bowdown:  :bowdown:

It is nice, but slightly incorrect. It has the rear wing from Sebring (which was different for Le Mans and Petit Le Mans), yet it has the Le Mans turbo inlet. ;)

But it is nice :)

Good luck ... finding sounds of wind-noise and tyre squeal, cause that's about all the noise it makes!

What is the difference exactly? I've been going through all my Petit pictures and I can't find anything obivious. Unforunatly they were very keen on keeping the rear wing covered up in the paddock (more then likely to hide the engine then the wing IMO). I can post some pictures if you'd like. They are all posted in my facebook albums.

On the topic of wings, what excatly was so questionable on the front splitter of the R15, it clearly didn't work to well...

I would have to concur, the thing is dead silent at speed. B)

The change of the turbo inlets and the the rear wing. They're slight changes, but significant enough to change them. Im picky ;)

The first turbo inlet was used at Sebring and testing for Le Mans, but what changed for the race. The Updated wing was used in Le Mans testing, though not at Sebring.

Dont know the full details of why it was questioned, but I believe its because in a sense, you have the splitter as the front wing, but the splitter itself can be adjusted even further. Mulsanne Mike explains:
