    is it true that the All American Racers Team used also a Lola T900 Chassie? Would be interesting how the Car looked, i can't find a Pic from this Car.

    I don't know if it's too late but the sidepod looks too angled and the tip of the nose is about two times as wide, and the front wing is a bit thin (should be a little less rectangular)

    I have some pics on my Google drive link above. In the Tom Sneva/non indy folder, there is a good side shot. It's the pics are mostly from sites already listed, but it should be sorted where finding them a bit easier.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1985_CART_PPG_Indy_Car_World_Series

    It looks like Ed Pimm raced a Lola at Milwaukee, and Sneva at a quite a few races. I'm assuming the Bettenhausen AAR Lola was the same chassis used by Sneva and Pimm as they didn't both race a Lola at the same race.

    I don't think I have any pics of that car other than the Bettenhausen one though... I'll see what I can find.

    Just one very small point there, the arrows on the front tyres are pointing in the wrong direction. ;)

    I am not an expert either but to adapt the mesh to implement realroad and some improvement I think I can make it manageable.

    I'll email the Kettle Moraine Preservation site to see if they still happen to have it.I'll let you know what I find.

    EDIT: Email sent, pending response.

    After looking for a while on the internet for a list of the lap times of the 1985 Cart season, I realized that one does not seem to exist.
    Wikipedia has a list of the fastest lap times in Indianapolis.
    There is a lap time of 43,916 by Rick Mears for 1985. The highest speed was 204,937 mph in a March 85c.
    Maybe this information will help.
