Roche Rapide F1 Evo2 chassis kit

Roche have announced the soon release of their Rapide F1 Evo2 1/10th scale formula pan car kit. The latest incarnation will feature a new design main chassis, lower pod and rear pod plate as well as an updated battery mount. The chassis allows for ±5mm wheelbase adjustment of the front suspension while the redesigned top deck optimizes on-power chassis flex and support. In addition it offers two centre shock positions. Also new with the Evo2 is a redesigned 7075 aluminium front bulkhead to connect the upper and lower arms while the servo mount allows to shift the servo for weight bias adjustment purposes. Other features include a new design steering arm mount for easier Ackermann adjustment, a new caster and camber mount plate allows for five different camber and four caster angle settings, and a new DVS-V3 centre shock ensures quick rear droop adjustments. The kit is rounded out by a new design side tube friction damper, a new design motor mount in a 2-tone design, and a new centre pivot system. An independent rear wing mount with seven wing heigh adjustments is the icing on the cake. The kit is set for a release in mid-April.
