Indonesian manufacturer Golem has introduced the Golem R-2 low centre of gravity 190mm touring car bodyshell. Designed to make for an aggressive and precise handling, the body will also up cornering speed with its overall lower centre of gravity. This was made possible by reducing the thickness of the roof section from 0.45mm down to 0.2mm. Golem have also moved the body about 4mm to the front compared to the predecessor R1 which makes for a more aggressive steering feeling. According to Golem the body is about 20 percent lighter while keeping exceptional strength in the bumper and side skirts section. As a compensation for the more forward position the body features larger and lower wing mounts to allow for a taller wing to be used while still complying with the rule books. On top of this the wing mounts were reinforced for less flex and vibration and the default wing positions is now 3mm further to the back compared to the R1 which is meant to provide less drag and more effective downforce.
