ARC release more R12 details

ARC have released more details about their highly anticipated R12 mid-motor touring car. The company started the project with three main goals: to maximise the mechanical traction, to centralise the transmission, and lower the overall centre gravity. Following a lot of evaluation and track tests all over the works, the R12 will feature all-new suspension arms that are increased in length in order to improve overall traction and corner speeds while offering two different shock mounting positions. The matching suspension blocks are of a more narrow design to complement the long arms. The upper deck is now of a 2-piece design with independent flex adjustments front and rear while the all-new drivetrain pulley design provides a very centralised drivetrain for increased stability and handling. Also new is the 1-piece easy flex adjustment more mount with a lightweight motor bulkhead design. A new spur adapter ensures quick and easy main gear changes while the new chassis offers optimised flex with mounting positions for both the new long and the older short arm design. All-new low centre of gravity anti-roll bars, new bulkheads with an updated roll centre adjustment design and an all-new rear shock tower, that supports horizontal and vertical body post mounting rounds out the package. The R12 is set for a release around mid-May.
