Alien Racing Yokomo R12 conversion kit

Alien Racing have introduced a new conversion kit for the Yokomo R12 1/12th scale chassis which allows you to place the battery in longitudinally. The main chassis is 4mm longer and the central shock is now moved 12mm further forward. The rear body mounts have also been moved 4mm further forward to reduce the spacing between the front and rear posts. Other changes include the ability to remove the pack without removing the plates and due to the new layout the weight distribution between the left and right is improved.

Especially created for carpet racing the thicker material makes the car more precise and more stable, while at the same time making it easier to corner consistently. The upper deck is made of a similar carbon and is visually identical to that of the Yokomo original.

Alien Racing Legend12 1/12th scale chassis

French brand Alien Racing have released their latest 1/12th scale chassis, the Legend12. The most noticeable thing about this new car is the longitudinal position of the battery. This helps corner faster and reduce yaw in the car in direction change and this layout can accept a 1S LiPo as well as 4 cell NiMh pack. The links connecting the rear pod to the main chassis are made from carbon and are mounted below the electronics to save space. Finally the rear bulkhead sees the motor mounted super low for improved centre of gravity.
