Features

REVISED SUSPENSION GEOMETRY

The adjustable, 15-degree caster blocks make it possible to tune dog bone plunge by changing the height of the spindle.

REVISED SHOCK TOWERS

The shock towers have also been redesigned with new camber link and shock mounting holes that provide more tuning options for evolving track conditions. The result is a buggy that lets drivers of all skill levels turn faster lap times with fewer mistakes.

OPTIMIZED DRIVETRAIN LAYOUT

The engine mount has been repositioned to reduce front driveshaft angle so more power makes it to the front wheels. Molded rubber boots on the universals and center drivetrain dog bones increase U- joint life by holding lubrication in and keeping dirt out.

LARGE-FOOTPRINT ENGINE MOUNT

In addition to its new position, the engine mount has been designed with a larger footprint that substantially reduces chassis flex and fatigue underneath the engine when racing on high-grip tracks.

LARGE BEARING SPINDLES AND HUBS

Front spindles and rear hubs have been revised to accept a larger 8 x 16 x 5 outer bearing for increased durability.

REVISED CHASSIS SIDE GUARDS

The chassis side guards have been updated for a better fit. They also feature indentations for the Velcro body strips.

WEIGHT BALLAST-READY

The chassis has been designed to accommodate hard-mount ballast weights so it is easier to meet the ROAR minimum weight requirement.

CVA AND CENTER DRIVE BOOTS

The CVA's now are protected by rubber boots to further improve durability by keeping grease in and dirt out. Additionally the center front and rear dogbone coupler now includes rubber boots to do the same job.

REVISED THROTTLE ACTUATOR

The revised throttle actuator now uses bearings to further improve throttle and brake response. It also features a new brace that prevents flexing during heavy braking.

BLEEDER SHOCK CAPS

New bleeder shock caps and internal seals allow for easier shock rebuilds while using an emulsion shock set-up. New bushings that press into the shock cap further improve durability.

OPTION PARTS

A myriad of option parts are included which include lightweight 48 tooth spur gear, lightweight out drives, +1mm rear hexes, capped wheel nuts, aluminum bearing inserts, aluminum adjustable hinge pin braces and a host of other tuning parts.

CAB-FORWARD BODY

The cab-forward body moves aerodynamic pressure further forward on the car, which improves steering.
