Iris ONE.05 Competition Touring Car

In addition to unveiling its first FWD 1:10 Electric Touring Car, Iris has simultaneously released the ONE.05 4WD Touring Car on which the front wheel drive is based.  The ONE.05 touring car is the second generation competition car kit that has been designed and developed entirely by Ruddog.  Based on feedback from customers and team drivers, the German manufacturer has improved several areas of the original Iris ONE.  While the ONE.05 is still based on the same concept as the ONE and uses most of the same drivetrain and plastic parts, it features several improvements to make the car faster and more durable.  It now has an updated and optimised shock linkage and a carbon fibre rocker arm that reduces roll when cornering.  New chassis locating pins on the bulkheads, motor mount and damper cases not only improve durability, but have also allowed us to redesign these parts and make them lighter, saving over 25g in total.  It still features an ultra-narrow bulkhead design and the efficient three-belt design for perfect weight balance and less belt tension compared to a two-belt design.  Many unique details, such as an optional direct mount aluminium fan, have been incorporated into the design of the Iris ONE.05 to give you an edge over the competition.

· Updated shock linkage geometry: for less roll and higher corner speed
