Having released the first images of THE Car last week, JQ Products continue with the 2nd part of the release with the full feature list together with some new photos.
– Narrow layout, along with one of the narrowest chassis ever seen on a 1:8 buggy. (108mm at widest point). A narrow car is more nimble and fast compared with a wider one.
– Central engine location. The key to building a narrow car.
– Revolutionary Adjustable Weight Distribution. Engine and Centre Diff move 8mm forwards-back.
– Laydown Brake System. In order to make the weight distribution change easily, and taking out the centre diff easily, laydown brakes was the way to go.
– Simplest throttle/brake linkage on the market. Because simple is always better.
– Balanced left to right. Because we turn both ways on our tracks.
– Out of the box, about 3240g. Because no matter what anyone says, a lighter car is faster, wears less, consumes less fuel, and less tyres, and it is the future of our hobby. If a heavy car is faster than a light one, the light one has the wrong setup or the wrong tyres!
– Fail safe servo saver for the thread lock challenged individuals out there. Impossible to work loose.
– The first un-complicated radio tray. Changing a servo in a hurry, with tray in the car is easy. Everything on the tray can be changed with the tray, and linkages intact.
– Distinctive rear end geometry for great on power traction, acceleration and corner speed.
– New style roll-centre adjustments on rear.
– Designed for European and American tracks and drivers. Possibility to set the car up for Euro style tracks and driving style, maximum corner speed, or US style jumps and bumps.
– Pre-assembled turnbuckles, because we all hate building them.
– 14.5mm threaded, hard-anodized shocks feature 3.5mm shafts. Because bigger isn’t better, better is better. We tested all sizes, and this is the best for THE Car.
– Hard Anodised CNC Aluminium Arm Holders with inserts for tuning toe-in, anti-squat and kick-up as standard. Since this is a Pro racing car, why should you have to immediately buy option parts?
– Optimized steering geometry for maximum, yet linear steering, and reduced bump-steer. Steering = Corner speed = Fast Laptimes = Wins. It’s all about steering.
– Moulded composite front and rear chassis braces. CNC may be option parts, because they aren’t needed, except for the people who like bling, “just because”.
– 3-shoe clutch, with aluminum clutch shoes.
– Lightened Aluminium 4mm hard-anodized chassis with ballast locations as standard. Because THE Car is underweight with lightweight options installed.
– CNC Aluminium Steering Knuckles as standard. Plastic ones are for RTR:s, even if they don’t break. We do have a certain bling requirement at JQ Products.
– Clunk style fuel tank because we all crash, and it feeds fuel to the engine while upside down.
