Icon RC TC7.2 CF shock towers & alloy spool outdrives

Icon RC have announced the release of new 3mm carbon fibre low profile shock towers as well as v2 aluminium spool outdrives for the Team Associated TC7.2 touring car. Starting with the shock towers, ICON RC 3mm low profile Associated TC 7.2 shock towers, CNC-machined from high-quality 3mm carbon fibre, these shock towers have been designed to achieve the lowest possible centre of gravity and to be used in conjunction with the latest generation of ultra short shocks, like the popular Axon dampers. The new 3mm option allows for more flex with track tests having shown better drivability and more corner speed in high grip conditions such as carpet or black indoor tarmac, with a small lack of steering and agility compared to the 4mm option. The shock tower sets includes a front and a rear shock stay.

Icon RC ultraflex chassis 38g brass weight

Coming from Icon RC and made for their ultraflex chassis series is a 38g battery weight. Designed specifically to further lower the overall centre of gravity the weight is only 0.5mm thick, yet it adds 38g of weight which will result in increased stability when running on high grip carpet or asphalt tracks. Designed to fit snuggly into the milled sections of the chassis, the weight will not interfere with the natural chassis flex and it is available for the Team Associated TC7.2 and the new Infinity IF14 chassis.

Icon RC TC7.2 alloy spool outdrives & Pro Pack

Icon RC from Italy have announced the release of new option parts for the Team Associated TC7.2 touring car in the form of aluminium front spool outdrives and the Pro Pack alloy chassis and outdrive combo. Starting with the outdrives, the parts are machined from Swiss 7075-T6 aluminium and they come with a hard PTFE coating for wear. The outdrives were developed for the use with the included Team Associated ASC31238 blades for reduced drivetrain wear and they also scrub about 60 percent of weight compared to the standard steel parts, weighing in at only 3.5g a pair. As for the Pro Pack, the combo package includes the above alloy outdrives and also the recently introduced aluminium ultraflex chassis.

Icon RC TC7.2 aluminium chassis

Italian company Icon RC has announced their first competition chassis for the new Team Associated TC7.2 electric touring car. Made out of 7075 high-grade aluminium, the 2.0mm thick chassis was developed for the use on high bite surfaces as it offers better rotation and steering in such conditions thanks to its optimised dynamic flex. In addition the chassis is 13 percent lighter than the original aluminium chassis while the Icon-exclusive shape serves the purpose of reducing chassis scrub under braking and acceleration.
