Ofcourse that aint true, it`s my kind off humor to point at that.
Some say it`s arrogant, i think it`s fun..

Once had a discussion with people about a Shephard chassis,
it claims to have a stiffer aluminum.....:

I'm not implying anything, Capricorn uses the 'Ergal' name instead of 7075 so I choose to do so as well.

Some new Pictures of the LAB C801

You can see the rear camber adjustment system. With this system you can change the rear camber with a hex driver, just like you're used of doing at the front. This makes it possible to dial in that all important rear camber setting with just a quick stop in the pits.
Also you can see the carbon arms for the steering blocks, this makes the steering blocks the same for both sides so less investments in spare parts.

Ergal is mostly a name used in Italy, Spain and Portugal to name 7075 alloys.
Just FYI, not all "Ergal" is 7075. It's a brand name for the 70xx series of aluminum so grades like 7020 and 7050 could also be called "Ergal". Of course, 7075 being the king, it's almost always 7075. Not arguing, just informing. Looks like a wicked ride.

Not only 70xx, but also 60xx, it`s a brand name and they not only make 70xx,
Just like Fortal and all others, the only thing they all have in common, is the 70.000 MPa.

That`s all

Quick question about hubs: are they the same hard light for mugen / velox, or not?

grazie

Very nice indeed, a good car to do some additional 1/8 scale racing in the promo class.
Hope to see one on the dutch circuits pretty soon.
