Roche introduce new Rapide P12 option parts

Roche introduce new Rapide P12 option parts

Roche have new option parts for the Rapide P12 1/12th scale pan car available. First up is a floating steering servo conversion kit. Developed and tested by Roche factory driver Naoto Matsukura, the conversion makes for a centralised servo mounting position to achieve equal left and right flex characteristics. Furthermore the servo’s position can be centred, allowing to use a wide range of servo sizes without having to worry about different length steering links. On top of that the servo can also be mounted hanging to the left or right to achieve the best possible weight distribution. All graphite parts are cut from USA-made carbon fibre and using the chassis makes for more stability while the car is also easier to drive. Beside the chassis and servo mount the conversion also includes a new aluminium damper top cover that allows to mount the centre shock in three different forward or rear positions.


Next up is a left 2016 version aluminium bulkhead. It is of a reinforced design and helps to achieve a better weight distribution. Also new is a pattern-designed Urethane front bumper for the P12 and most other 1/12th scale cars. The lightweight, compact bumper looks cool and it protects the front end of the chassis as well as the bodyshell. Last but not least come 4.3mm ball studs. The reinforced 7075 aluminium pivots come hard-coated for wear, they are available in 11.8mm and 12.7mm variants and they offer high durability and a very smooth surface.
