After listening to the demands of racers and putting their traditional spin on things UK company Zen Racing have come up with the Zen-RS Gen2.1 chassis conversion for the Team Associated R5. The kit offers the option of inboard side spring locations on the cross braces and the lower pod plate. Having this option reduces the amount of side spring rate change giving a more linear feel. As a result this then allows the driver to use stiffer side springs with more adjustability and a wider tuning window. The Gen2.1 does not allow the use of the Zen bellcrank steering system but instead gives the user the choice between in-line and side LiPo battery placement thanks to two different cross braces. Due to the nature of the chassis layout there is also an option for shock location direct to the chassis or via chassis post and plate, both positions are tried and tested to provide a balanced on-off power driving feel.
