    Part of the new Roadmap discusses tie-ins with the upcoming movie about the 1966 Le Mans race.
    Sounds like some of the world will see a movie called Le Mans 66 while others will see Ford vs. Ferrari.

    I saw it before this thread, it was unclear to me what you want to discuss in this thread so I asked.

    The Lola and GT40 do look similar, to be fair.

    GT 40 started life as a Lola Tub if that is the correct term.(don't think they referred to them as tubs back then)

    Maybe that's big mystery? GT40 vs 330 P4? That would be a thing ..

    If you like that type off thing.
    I will probably watch the movie though. Did watch Rush, Hunt and Lauder. Great movie but it didn't make me want to to go out and buy a pack of cigarettes!

    Threaten to sue, they will counter-sue, and then you will both settle. IF the movie makes money that is...

    I am working with physics update for 1967 Endurance cars mod by Woochoo (which is based on G4), it has all these cars. Well if you are interested, have any trust on me knowing how the cars should handle, and aren't phased by the fact that models are all altered Howston G4. Anyway, at least I do have a good time with them. To put it short - anyone who is interested in this https://forum.studio-397.com/index....-1967-endurance-racing-proto-sports-gt.46937/ just wait for update.
