Maybe both? Full Goodyear livery for this promo, during LM24 smaller branding on the car.

This is going to be absolutely epic. Dreaming of a moment where we get this and a Cadillac going along the front straight at the same time.

Looking forward to seeing the Hypercars tripping over it round the Porsche Curves...or maybe even being overtaken by it in a straight line?

IIRC when RLM were based above the ACO tribune and they left the door ajar, the sounds of the cars heading up to Dunlop was spine tingling ... this sounds like it will do the same !

I'm really impressed with the level of testing they have been putting this through. Great to see how serious they are taking the effort.

I never had doubts. The personnel involved, the money. This car is Nascar's future-not just technological development but also marketing. In order for Nascar to remain vital they need attention on a world stage. A successful 24 Hours of LeMans (say top 10 finish) would garner loads of press.

Good points, and it makes me wonder if they have done endurance testing yet? They have been to a variety of tracks but I don't recall hearing about any extended tests.

I have no idea. I guess there has not been any coverage of testing details nor specifications. I'll speculate that the specs might be evolving during testing and nothing has been set in stone. I guess as G56, they can keep changing specs all the way up to LM, as long as the safety structures and systems remain.

Well, here we go with information from Hendrick Motorsport. Jimmie Johnson is doing testing along with Rockenfeller. They have been to VIR and Kershaw, SC (close to me) along with Sebring

A surprising amount of info there on the development. Like, they are just now putting carbon brakes on, and there was an issue with the diff so that was changed, and it has slightly confused me:

Quote:
At day’s end, the team changed to a second transmission that had a spool differential in it for use on the second day. Typically, when going around a corner, the wheel on the outside of the corner has to turn faster than the wheel on the inside of the corner. With a spool differential, the wheels were locked together. The car doesn’t want to get around a corner since the inside and outside wheels can’t turn at different speeds.
So they are sticking with a spool differential?

Also on the tire front they are still evaluating options. That was one of the questions I had for the G56 entry. Would they be using the standard Goodyears or bring their own.

I don't know why they wouldn't run a Detroit Locker but the V8 Supercars used to run a locked diff (and may still). I never could wrap my head around why.

Can you have 'traction control' with a spool diff?

The tires must be a Nascar spec size, and the weight of this car must be a factor too.

Yes, weight must be a factor on tire selection. I know i'm excited to see some new hypercars on the grid this year, but this entry is really going to turn some heads too!
