Representing 2 categories, the new Lm series embodies the essence of a pure competition level machine. An exquisitely finished body complete with scale parts compliments the state of the art chassis equipped with carbon components coupled with sponge tires as standard in a machine that delivers the ultimate in style and racing power. The proven suspension configuration with competition-level components and setting parts provide the means to win! In addition, the model includes the multi-motor mount that enables the driver to use their preferred power source. The display model finish provides a full sense of the real racing machine that will leave drivers awestruck, from beginners to experts.

PLAZMA Lm does not restrict the type of battery to be used. Two battery holders included can suit most NiMH, Li-Po and Li-Fe batteries available on the market. From slightly older and larger 7.4V Li-Po s to the latest ORION TS and RC PLANNING R246 Muscle Power series batteries or short size and 1-cell size Li-Po batteries used in 1/12 racing, nearly all batteries for 1/12 and 1/10 models can be installed.
In 1990 Nissan ended its partnership with Lola in the development of the R89C for the LeMans 24 hour race and embarked independently on the development of a new machine. This machine was the R90CP. While its basic center monocoque package was adopted from the R89C, a newly designed cowl produced improved aerodynamics and the evolutionary V8 turbo VRH35Z engine delivered dramatic improvements in racing potential. The R90CP made its debut in the domestic Japanese championship and continued to enhance its performance with repeated race activity. The next challenge was the LeMans. Nissan entered 7 machines in that year, but only one R90CP, No.23 driven by Japanese trio Masahiro Hasemi, Kazuyoshi Hoshino and Toshio Suzuki. Having posted 3rd place in the heat, the R90CP maintained good position in the final race despite minor mechanical troubles, while other Nissan cars fell back. With one hour to go a gearbox change was required, but was executed in only 11 minutes, allowing the R90CP to claim 5th place, the best finish of any Japanese car and driver combination in 1990.
