Capricorn Lab GT2 EP chassis kit

Italian manufacturer Capricorn have expanded their range, by entering 1:8th GT world, offering a unique design to other competitors on the market that will come in both a GP and EP version. The GT2 EP has some very unique features, the main one being carbon upper and lower arms which are mounted on a pivot ball to the chassis, something which is now becoming more widely used in the 1:10 touring car scene. Accompanying the carbon lower arm will be a carbon upper arm, which provides a far more stable flex characteristic especially for varying temperatures and traction conditions. On to the drivetrain and in classic Capricorn fashion it has been made as light as possible keeping reliability in mind. With the weight of the chassis in this class, the lighter drivetrain will aid in acceleration. A low centre of gravity has also been taken in to consideration with super low shock towers and sway bars, along with getting the height of the bulkheads as low as possible for increased corner speed. There is a range of adjustability through the car from axle height adjustment, differential height adjustment and a wide range of flex options.
