was really hoping someone would be gutsy enough to try a mode decoupling solution

for the life of me I can't think of a good reason why they chose that placement for rear toe link.
I'm reserving judgement until getting a closer look...Myrberg has shown over the years that he has a good head on his shoulders...

I am very happy for Andreas Myrberg for finally pulling this off. The pictures are really nice, with a lot of good looking details, beautiful finishing of the parts with all chamfers, and I also like the fact that it is a different design language. Good they mention sturdiness, I hope it is true. Also looking forward to a more in-depth analysis. As I will design my own car (M-Class) I guess I will be busy chasing this. I wish Ruddog and Andreas Myrberg a lot of success with this!

i don't know rc designers. but i am excited someone decided to use real world solutions and bringing em to the 1/10 world.

People say the Awesomatix is overly complicated. Once you're familiar with the design, it's a simple car to work through, adjust and maintain. I doubt the Iris is any different. It will have a learning curve, but unless there's something bizarre inside the dampers or diff, I doubt it's any more difficult than the Awesomatix.

I'm curious what the benefit is of the front pitch spring/damper. I thought 1:1 cars use it to keep the car from bottoming out at high speeds with large amounts of downforce. Maybe it's a good way to tune initial corner entry.

Chassis flex looks interesting. It seems like the back is going to be pretty stiff with the short rear top deck and no lower cutouts, and the front pretty soft. But it's hard to tell without seeing the car in person.

Is there a benefit to mounting the upper arm inner pivot balls horizontally? It seems like the Awesomatix upper arms are more simple and effective.

This car intrigues the hell out of me. I'm just happy to see a unique design and not another clone.

If lower too (cant see yet): Track width adjustability?

Yeah itīs the easiest place to mount it, they often did not even need a new Hole

Look at Schumacher Axis or SST2000 they have them also in the back and I raced this car with no issue

I like it a lot, Andreas really thought it through, with a fresh take on a TC. Coloring reminds me of the Robitronic Avid 👌 also love that he went with Ruddog for equipment👍. Well done and will be exciting to see at the races.

Looks like you can shim the length of the ball studs connecting the arm to the bulkhead to change the angle.

I've got a feeling there's going to be different top plates to change caster . Like how mugen does it

If this is the case then I think IMO they kind of dropped the ball on the design. Unscrewing the ball stud completely off then adding or removing a shim, then put everything back together, put the car back in the setup station, then do it all over again if that shim isnt enough just isnt ideal. Also you are at the mercy of how thick or thin of a shim you have available to make this adjustment, and even then its still a stepped adjustment.

Ideally I think they just simply screw the ball stud in or out for both camber and caster adjustment. for fast and easy adjustments

Default I jizzed in my pants

Beautiful piece of engineering. Truely out of the box thought processes. This would be in the same league as awesomatix's a700/a800, serpents project 4x series, the original gizmo gz1... haven't had my boffin genes so aflame with excitement for awhile now.
Good luck and have fun!
