Kawada M300 FX4 US Spec 1/12th pan car kit

Japanese company Kawada have introduced the M300 FX4 US Spec 1/12th scale pan car kit. Based off of the FX3 the latest variant features a noticeable amount of changes and updates such as the new rear power pod with newly designed 6mm alloy motor and side plate that now allow rear axle height adjustments using shims rather than the conventional inserts. The motor pod is also of a low profile design, scrubbing about 3mm of height compared to the previous version.

Also new with the FX4 is a 9mm big bore centre shock absorber for improved traction and bump track handling. The shock comes with precision machined POM piston and rod guide for better overall performance. The centre pivot plate on the FX4 is of an adjustable design using a large diameter nut to make for easier assembly while allowing for virtually friction-less performance. The car is based of a new hard 2.5mm carbon fibre chassis for improved handling on very high-bite tracks and higher corner speeds. The chassis also offers several steering servo layouts with mounting holes for standard servo mounts, the use of a Sanwa-style direct mounts of an optional floating servo mount. The kit is available now.
