Following a first preview, AME have announced full details and several renderings of their forthcoming Project IRIS 1/10th scale 4WD touring car kit. This next generation touring car was developed by Andreas Myrberg with the focus being set on an easy to build, easy to tune and easy to maintain platform without sacrificing performance. The car builds on a class-standard double deck chassis and utilises a 2-belt drivetrain but this is where similarities with most other touring cars end as the suspension package features innovative pushrods to actuate the rotation shock absorbers and torsion springs.
The lower A-arms are of a multi-piece design that allows to fine-tune the stiffness using different inserts while again inserts come into play to adjust the arm width which makes adapting the car to different traction levels easy. Other features of Project IRIS include an innovative swaybar system that does away with the tweak issues associated with standard designs while also the front bumper is a part of the chassis where no stone was left untouched. As mentioned in the first introduction the production of the car will be funded by a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign where donation starts at 5 Euros while higher amounts secure you different specifications of the kit including pre-built cars equipped with stock or modified electronics, a painted body and even full race support at the opening round of the 2016/17 ETS.
