WRC Racing SBX.1 1/8th nitro off-road buggy
Following a couple of teaser images on social media, WRC Racing from Italy have finally lifted the curtain and officially unveiled their all-new SBX.1 1/8th nitro off-road buggy. Known for their popular on-road kits, the SBX.1 buggy is a first for the company and it builds on a 7075-T6 aluminium chassis that is designed to adapt the vehicle to a wide range of track conditions. The drivetrain is equipped with CVD driveshafts throughout, it features an industry standard 3-differential drivetrain with hardened lightweight outdrives and included in the kit is also a 7075-T6 aluminium clutch with captured clutch bell. The designers adopted a pivot ball front steering knuckle setup for the suspension that allows a wide range of adjustments including caster, camber, upper roll centre, bump steering as well as track width. Front and rear arms are side to side interchangeable, and it is possible to choose three different hardness materials for each one, hard, medium or soft. The rear hubs are designed in order to allow a variety of upper camber link positions and to allow the adjustment of the upper and lower roll centre, camber gain and more. Other features of the buggy include front and rear 7075-T6 aluminium shock towers to which mount big bore shock absorber. The buggy is decked out by a cab forward body shell and it will become available very soon.
