Genius, known for their popular and successful 1/5th large scale vehicles have introduced their latest project, the GTC8 1/8th scale GT on-road kit. A no compromise platform the car sports a bunch of precision-machined 7075-T6 aluminium parts and optionals as standard items, meaning no option parts are needed to complete at the highest level. Designed to meet IFMAR rules the kit rocks some innovative features such as a low centre of gravity brake system, a LCG battery holder, lots of chassis flex adjustments, balance weight options and a very lightweight yet sturdy design. The GTC8 will become available as a full car kit and also as conversion kit for the Xray GTX8 with a full electric kit and Xray GTXE conversion coming very soon. Pre-order for the first, limited, batch of nitro kits and conversions is already available and kits should ship soon.
The French importers of the Italian made Genius range of 1/5th scale cars was in contact to tell us about the new Genius FR Formula one car. Made using the best materials, all aluminium parts are made in ergal, it is the first 1/5 F1 designed with real front wing and rear diffuser such as those seen on a real car. Designed to be easy to maintain, you can quickly dismantle the rear differential, change the gear transmission and adjust the shocks. The suspension arms feature a uniball which through the use of plates tightened between the ball and arm allow for easy adjustment of the front and rear camber as well as rear toe. The car is also very lightweight for this class, weighing in at only 11kg.
