Hello everyone,

I'm a 3D modeler who worked on Endurance Series a long time ago and on GTPC of VLM Junior Team for rFactor.

As you know Pixsim is working on his masterpiece, the Charade track: http://www.virtualr....k-rfactor-2-way
I would like modelling some cars which raced on this track! There is a long list. Some famous, some less famous... But sadly, dimensions of them are quite hard to find. I must say that I dont like really the research part in the modding...Posted Image

So I decided writing a post to ask some help about this Charade "project". I don't know if I will do one, two or several cars for Charade still. (I think about some F1, F2, 2.0l Sport-Prototype, Formula Ford, Formula Renault... Alpine (as A364, but Pixsim and me need more dimensions about it), Martini,Rondeau M584-M585, Matra, Mclaren and so on....)

The first one is Mclaren M7.
- dimensions
Posted Image
- pictures and blueprints

Indeed, I'm not sur really of my sources about tires, do you know them? Goodyear for all but Firestone for Surtees.

Thank you everybody for your help, I hope seeing a helpfull community!

Your research seems correct.
I also see Goodyear used exclusively by Team McLaren since the first M7A outing at the 1968 Spanish GP through the 1970 Belgian GP.
Other teams used McLaren M7 cars - all with Goodyear.
There was usage of Firestone on the M7C entered by Team Surtees in four GPs throughout 970.
Basil van Rooyen used Dunlop on an M7A entered by Team Lawson at the 1969 South African GP.
