Following the recent launch of their much applauded new GT1, a car that was conceived as starting point for bringing new people into RC racing, Yokomo is now offering some lightweight graphite parts for the simple 1:12 chassis. By replacing the standard FRP plates with carbon ones, the car’s weight can be reduced and the rigidity can be increased. Offering a lower chassis, upper chassis, rear bulkhead plate and body mount plate, they will dramatically increase the performance of the car, and at the same time, will give the car a racing look. The main chassis is made of 2.4mm thick material to increase pitching rigidity while minimising roll rigidity for easy manoeuvrability. The side slits, which serve as the rear suspension, are also longer than standard to provide supple suspension operation.
