It is with much excitement that we announce the release of our new 12th Scale car kit. After much testing and design hours, we are releasing what we feel is the ultimate "Tinkerer's" 12th scale kit.
Below is our "press release/ product description":
The RR12 has several innovative features not seen on other 12th scale cars before. From our integrated, revolutionary uni-mount shock/servo/antenna mount, to our adjustable wheelbase motor pod, the car is loaded with features which makes the RR12 the most adjustable and versatile 12th scale in the market today.
With the versatility of the RR12, tons of different geometries are possible. The car is compatible with XRAY side links or AE Side links, as well as XRAY Damper Tubes or AE Damper Tubes.
The RR12 is offered in 4 different variants:
1.Premium Kit: Full kit including RSD Hardware/Springs/Plastics/IRS Diff/Team Prime Shock/Xenon AE Style Front end with full set of 0-5 degree knuckles, plus Ti Nitride coated hinge pins and king pins.
2.Regular Kit: Full RSD Parts and AE Based front end with IRS Diff/ Team Prime Shock
3.RR12AE: Conversion kit for a donor AE Kit. Only Items included are chassis, pod, front uni mount. Hole pattern is for AE R5 Front end
4.RR12X: Conversion Kit for a donor XRAY Kit. Only Items included are chassis, pod and front uni mount. Hole pattern is for XRAY X12 front end.
Revolutionary Front Uni-Mount:
Our revolutionary front Uni mount is one of the greatest innovations in the RR12. It incorporates the Front Shock Mount, with multiple positions and vertical stud mounts, a floating servo mount which allows for a broad range of micro and mini servos to be used and finally the antenna mount. Machined out of 7075-T6 Aluminum, the added rigidity allows for a more effective shock mount.
The Chassis is designed to be used in transverse or inline configuration. When used in inline mode, the front uni mount acts as the battery holder as well. The Chassis has been designed with less overhang in the front for less rubbing.
Upper Pod Plate:
The pod plate can be moved fore and aft 4mm. This allows for a more forward shock position (XRAY Style) or a more rearward shock position (AE Style). Typically, the more forward the shock position, the smoother and more planted the car becomes at the expense of a little steering. Combined with the multiple shock positions of the Front Unimount, along with vertical stud mount for the shock, fine adjustment of dampening is unprecedented.
Team Prime Shock Absorber:
Best Center Shock in the business. Comes with Ti Nitride shock shaft, machined delrin piston and is hard anodized for a premium fit and finish. When coupled with our RSD Center Springs, the combination is tough to beat.
Multiple Side Link Compatibility:
The RR12 Can be used with XRAY or AE Length side links.
Adjustable Wheelbase Slider Pod:
The RR12 features and industry first. A slider pod, which allows for easy and quick rear ride height adjustment, coupled with an up to 3.5 mm wheelbase extension adjustment. The wheelbase can easily be adjusted by inserting shims in between the motor pod and rear sliding bearing holders. On short, technical tracks, use a shorter wheelbase and on longer, sweeping corners, extend the wheelbase for extra stability.
Optimized Rear Body Post Position:
The body posts have been moved further out in order to avoid the crease on bodies such as the AMR-12.
Now for some images:
The car will be available in around 30-40 days. Pre orders are up on our website. The first 25 kits will be limited edition and will include a full compliment of springs and a custom tool kit. The cars will also be numbered.
Going forward this will also be our thread to discuss and share on the RR12.
