Volker opens qualifying with TQ run

Volker opens qualifying with TQ run

Qualifying for the Xenon Modified class got underway this morning with Ronald Volker taking the first TQ run here in Kastellaun, German.  The Yokomo ace ended the five minute run well clear of the opposition with Freddy Sudhoff just over 5 seconds adrift with the second fastest time.  Volker said it was definitely a good way to start the day but admitted his car was still difficult to drive and he was having to drive a very fine line which on this occasion was possible as he faced no pressure from other drivers during the heat.

Exclusive – Schumacher Mi4CX

Schumacer Mi4CX

Schumacher have a first production version of their new Mi4CX at the first round of the ETS, driven by Belgian team driver Manuel Henriet, which is an update to their British Championship winning chassis. The main changes are the new front and rear drive axle mounting blocks which have been put on a diet, while attached to those blocks are new composite lower wishbone mounting brackets which replace the current aluminium versions. Due to the reduced materials used in the areas, an updated chassis sporting additional mounting points for the blocks help increase stiffness. Up front the car also has a new spool and beefier front drive shafts.

Serpent Cobra-T 1/8th scale truggy

Serpent Cobra-T 1/8th scale truggy

Following yesterdays release of the video showing Billy Easton testing the new Serpent truggy, the Dutch company have released details and CAD images on the new Billy Easton designed Cobra-T. Sharing many of the same parts and design elements of the buggy, the Truggy is different in many aspects and requires quite a selection of specific parts as well. The larger wheel/tyres and different body-type style, together with longer wheel-base do require intensive testing to find again the right balance in the car, as well as the correct level of grip and to be very good on large jumps too. The end result is a very sleek and “low” design, with a perfect left to right and front to back balance, making it a very nimble car and easy to push very hard out on the track. The Serpent Cobra-T will most likely feature CNC machined 7075 T6 shock towers, instead of the carbon ones, as standard. Release of the new truggy is planned for early December 2010.
