A couple of photos. The bulkheads are no longer keyed to the chassis, only screws now. Also motor mount is two pieces and also no longer keyed. Chassis is all new and no longer has a battery side mount/taping option. Updated top deck as well. Looks to be some great refinements to an already great car!

I have the existing R11 and have been very impressed with the quality of the car and also how nice it was to drive on track.

For me one of the good features was keying parts to the chassis to stop them twisting and tweaking the car... I don't understand why they moved away from this.

Funny enough, they claim the keyed parts were removed to eliminate tweak.

I would suggest finding the ARC pages on facebook. Not many of them come around out here.

Please find my recent results and report on Facebook. The R11 2017 hands down has been the best car out of the box I have driven and worked on. I was able to TQ and Win our invitational race my first time out with the car.

I also just finished the build on my R11 2017 US Spec kit that I will be using for carpet. The build and quality on these cars are second to none.

Default R11 2017 US spec.

I have been running this car for a few weeks now and I am very impressed with the handling. The car is very easy to drive fast. I will be posting a setup for carpet in the next few days.
