Default Capricorn LAB-TE02 touring car kit



Italian company Capricorn introduce the new LAB-TE02 electric touring car kit. The car is based on a new 2.25mm carbon fibre chassis plate, features an adjustable flex system for the top deck and comes with a redesigned motor mount for added torsional flexibility. Also new are low profile shock absorber with corresponding shock towers, an Ackermann steering plate with 8.5, 9.5 and 10.5 inserts as well as new split inner suspension mounts that further assist with traction when needed. The kit is rounded out by a new servo mount and lightweight aluminium ball studs. Taken over from the standard kit are dual joint front drive shafts and the lightweight Kevlar differential and layshaft pulleys. The TE02 kit will hit the stores in November.

I don't think so that there will be an upgrade kit cause is having many different thing and maybe the cost of the upgrade is more.

im not sure but, capricorn is an upgrade company and they generally make things better than the original companies such as in nitro. they make the best clutches and have several types of clutch shoes where other company's clutches are heaver and only make one type of shoe. idk but dont they have several top decks, chassis, steering rack, motor mount, big bore shocks, ect... these little things all add up un the end
