A nice evolution of the Eclipse 2... sexier that's for sure.

It has won 3 out of 4 BRCA nationals so far this season so it's fast.

I gotta say now, Schumacher is one kit (F1) away from me reconsidering my stable.

Default Camber

How do you adjust front camber on this car?

Is it static and non adjustable?

It can be done by different top braces.
they have dinks to show the amount of camber.

Can't tell by the pics, how is the top brace anchored?

Through the kingpins.


The axle carrier floats around the kin pin.

If they don't make an F1 soon, I'm calling my lawyer. It's just killing me how perfect the Eclipse rear end design is for an F1.

Optional Camber straps. Takes seconds to change.

(Sorry Robert, didn't realise you'd already answered it.)
