Creation Model has officially released details of their new Infinity IF14-2 ‘Team Edition’ 1:10 Electric Touring Car. Used by the team at the ISTC World Championships in Italy, where Jilles Groskamp qualified the car fifth on the grid, the car was developed with input from gathered in testing by its team drivers. While still sharing many spare and optional parts with the IF14-2, the Team Edition has a number of key changes to enhance performance. The rear section has been moved forward by approximately 1.2mm from the original IF14-2. This change in wheelbase and weight balance allows for faster cornering speeds and improved drivability. Newly designed PRS aluminium C-hub (minus 2° caster angle) improves traction and corner speed.
The newly designed USP2 shock is 2mm shorter in overall length than the conventional USP shock. Plastic parts, pistons, and other parts are identical to those of the USP shocks, maintaining the commonality of spare parts. New shock spring for use with the new USP2 shock is the newly developed SMJ Stealth Line Spring. The material and manufacturing process of the conventional SMJ Stealth Line springs have been revised to achieve a more smooth initial movement in the early stages of roll. New aluminium rear wheel axles are 1.5g lighter per axle than the standard steel ones, contributing to optimised front-rear weight balance when PRS is used. These lighter axles also improve throttle response. Both the aluminium driveshafts and aluminium rear wheel axles are hard anodised to dramatically improve durability. Existing useful option parts are included as standard. The Team Edition, a culmination of new and existing option parts for IF14-2, offers high potential in a wide range of track conditions and at all race speeds.
