Very low and centrally placed brake system for low centre of gravity with ventilated glassfibre brake disks, combined with thick steel plates which wont bend under pressure.

Radio-box
Composite radiobox which offers space for the lay-down steering servo and the upright placed brake-throttle servo. Sufficient spacers are supplied for correct fitting of the servo’s. The receiver and battery can be placed safely under the large cap. The transponder can be mounted in the central part, between servo and receiverbox. The whole assembly including linkages can be taken off easily and fast in one go, when cleaning the car, or doing maintenance.

4.5mm thick carbon shocktower with 5 upper positioning holes for the shocks and and 6 holes for roll-center positions. 1 centrally located adjustable bodymount , and 2 forward mounted adjustable bodymounts, all with flip-tops.

Angled steering system / servo saver
The bell cranks are angled to reduce the angle of difference between the total caster and steering plane. Therefore you will have less bump steer and a truer steering Ackerman through the entire range of suspension

Ackerman plates
With the design of the steering bell cranks when changing the Ackerman you will not need to adjust your steering tie rods. You simply will only need to adjust your end points on your radio..
