Title: Outlaw Super Late Models
Post by: TomShanK on 10/03/09, 03:44 PM
Hey guys, I'm kind of new to the website, but not new to racing in general.  I saw a couples posts with Super Late Model render requests, paint requests, and I recognized a few New paris cars and thought you guys might be interested in this:

This month's issue of Circle Track magazine's main article was on the Outlaw Super Lates, with Jackie Landis and another driver on the cover.   Just thought this was pretty cool if you guys haven't seen it, go grab an issue.

PS: Has anyone done Jackie or Scott Hantz's car yet?

Both are done but not posted. They are both a part of a carset that I can't quite complete. I am waiting for the last few big Super Late Model races to finish up and if I still can't complete the sets, I will post them individually.

Also, I saw that there will be a new Outlaw SLM series next year based out of MI. They want to run Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. No Ohio tracks run them as a part of their weekly programs, but I know most Michigan tracks do. I wonder how these tracks feel about this.

So, what game are these mods for; rFactor or nr03?  I need to download this stuff;  it sounds like a blast!  :D

Where can I get these Super Late Models/ LMPv2 mods at?  and I thought the online community crashed w/ nr03?  that's why I went back to ASR.

Matt, do you have any info on that new SLM series out of Michigan?  I might be interested in booking a date for a track very close to you!

I did see that issue of Circle Track.  The current issue of Speedway Illustrated has an article by David Stremme about his parents with some cool pics.  His dad Lou, after winning a feature in his blue outlaw, standing there with the checkered flag next to Mighty Mike Powers, who used to be the starter/lineup guy at New Paris.

You can get the Outlaw mod here at RacinGrafix in the download section.  I have painted quite a few of the New Paris Outlaws, and am finishing up a few to post as a set.

Jim, the series is called Great Lakes Outlaw Late Model Series (not to be confused with my fictional offline series Great Lakes Challenge Series!) Here is the link.

www.gllatemodels.com  (http://www.gllatemodels.com)

I wish that "track close to me" would get their heads out of their butts and bring back the super late models.

I am going to follow the site closely this winter because I am very interested to see how far into Ohio they try to come. I also heard a "RUMOR" that Chris Tolloty may retire and I am not sure how that would affect the Main Event Series. They say Berlin is on board and they will not be losing the Late Models as a weekly class. Should the series really take off though, who knows what could happen.

Cool, should I download the CTS or GNS Physics?

Edit: It appears that my nr03 disc is fubared and won't load past the sound file at 37% and is spitting out an error: -2147024873

Ugh.

The problem is the purse right now and the impending announcement from Mansfield (if it ever happens).  But I want atleast one special show for them.  You coming out this weekend?

Jim, I plan on being there both days. I will make sure to look for you.

Nick, If you mean Midvale's weekly division, it is actually the next step down from the Main Event guys. I am not a tech guy but there are small differences between the two. All in all, I would be happy if my track brought those back though.

i didnt know there was a difference between them at all other than thier weight for the rules of the series. i know the main event guys are a step up but i see VERY little difference in the cars. I would ask Mike Miller if i could, hes done main event races, and he finished second in Midvales points by only 7 points this year. My dad bought the house wwere living in from Mike Miller, and is good buds with him so we probably even have his number somewhere if he hasnt changed it within the last couple years. I doubt i would ever call him, but still id like to know the difference between Midvales cars and main events cars...

The reason it is so confusing is because they are often the exact same cars. The only place you will see a difference is in lap times. At Midvale, you are looking at a difference of about .5 seconds. The bigger the track, the bigger the gap gets.

I think Main Event cars are 4bbl while Late Models are 2bbl carbs.  Midvale runs Goodyear "Hockey Pucks" (tires) while I believe the Main Event runs Hoosiers (must softer rubber compound).  Main Event might allow 10 inch wheels, while the local tracks allow 8 or 9 inch tires.  There is a weight difference in the two in most circumstances. 

In fact, Rich Rohrer was a regular around here not too long ago and John Sandquist's son/brother (depending if you are talking about Sr or Jr.) was around as well.  They would know the difference better than me.

Go to this link for MERS rules, just click on series info and then on rules.
http://www.maineventracingseries.com/  


This link is for midvale's rules.  
http://www.midvalespeedway.com/rules/LateModelRules.pdf  

Midvale was a fun place to race, until the current owner took over, he brought a few of his sidekicks in and the rest is history.  I haven't raced there in 3 years.

Whats your name? what class did you run? pm me please

i think the 2 biggest differences between the MERS and the Midvale Lates are. 4 vs 2 BBL. carbs and wheel base. Unless its changed and it could have......i left the area over 6 years ago....... that was the difference.  And the MERS use to run Traction Control, but stopped about 5 or 6 years ago.

As an owner of Main Event Series car I can help you on the difference:

MERS: 102" wheelbase, 4bbl. carb, 2700lbs., Hoosier 3035left and 3045 right tires

Midvale: 104' wheelbase, 2bbl. carb, 2800lbs., Goodyear tires

I have recently talked with Chris Tolloty and he plans on having a schedule ready by the time of the Canton swap meet in november for 2010.

Berlin has dropped the slm as a weekly class, but will have them for at least 2 dates through GLLatemodel Series.

The GLLatemodel Series plans on 10 to 12 events will come as far south as Toledo, has no plans of invading Chris's area with the MERS.

Just filling the void up North with more tracks dropping these guy's weekly.

Even Kalamazoo is taking a serious look at the GLLatemodel Series and dropping them weekly. This is a track that is getting great car counts for weekly slm's.

Economy is tough right now, were struggling trying to get sponsors for us to race.

To have a chance with the MERS Series you have to almost buy 2 sets of tires for each event. Use your old tires from the previous race at the  new track for a hot lap session, a new set for your best set up and another new set to qualify and race on.

Car counts were up this year per event and that's a good sign for the Series, but also shows tracks are dropping them.

It's great that Carter Lumber has been with the Series as there primary sponsor for all these years, but it would sure be nice if they could include our cars in there commercials or foot the bill maybe to bring us cable TV coverage.

If we could get that like the dirt guy's have, we would really have ourselves an awesome series.

In the meantime, all you guy's doing renderings of our cars, keep up the great work.

Some of us are trying to use these renderings to help show a potential sponsor what there car would look like. It does help us get in the door.
