Japanese company Morotech have introduced the 12MW conversion kit for their Corally-based 12WC 1/12th scale pan car. Podium finisher at the 2014 IFMAR Electric On-road World Championships in the hands of on-road veteran Hideo Kitizawa, the conversion now received a makeover with harder carbon fibre parts and several refinements such as adjustable aluminium front chassis stiffeners, new inner castor blocks, two new chassis bridges behind the steering servo and in front of the battery as well as a new rear pivot block. According to Morotech the kit is for experienced modellers only and it will become available shortly.
Japanese company Morotech, know for their Project43 6-wheeler formula car, introduces a somewhat “vintage” carbon fibre chassis set for Tamiya’s F103 car. The chassis features a conventional T-bar rear suspension over a more modern link setup as it is en vogue with today’s formula and pan cars. The design also makes use of a single bellcrank steering for an improved Ackermann geometry and the rear end damping duties are taken care of by a friction disc damper. The T-bar itself is made from black fibre glass and it connects to the chassis using a Y-shaped front brace and a delrin rear brace. The kit should become available soon.
Japanese company Morotech now have their latest 1/10th formula pan car kit available in the form of the Project43 Part2 conversion kit. The evolution step of the company’s original 6-wheeler, that made use of the layout of the iconic 1976 Tyrrell P34, features a redesigned carbon fibre main chassis, new simpler front ends with revised Ackermann geometry as well as a V3 power pod with red anodised aluminium parts. Unlike current formula chassis designs the Project43 Part2 relies on a classical T-bar rear suspension with upper friction damper pressure plates to adjust the side-by-side and overall damping characteristics. Other new features include a self-levelling front section, a flex top deck and a medium-soft T-bar. The kit does not include parts such as the needed F103-style rear axle and diff unit, centre shock, tyres, bodyshell and wings and several small parts.
Morotech of Japan have released 3 new types of Dragon matched IB4200 VR-1X World champion cells. Featuring super high voltage, these cells are particularly suited to stock racing, and in particular the new sports class that is being run this year in Japan, and so these cells are all recognised by the JMRCA for this class. Sold in packs of 6, the different types range from the super powerful to the not so powerful but with more runtime. Available end of this month.
Japanese firm Morotech have today released these new items for use with the new Corally RDX Phi touring car. First up is this rather cool looking, and very light, carbon fiber tool to aid in the adjustment of the differentials on the Phi. The forks on the tool go into the drive cups on the diff and allow you to check if its slipping or not by allowing you to turn the pulley while both ends of the diff are held from rotating. The other piece from Morotech are these diff seal protectors that come in a pack of 8 and are available for the 42T and the 36T diff pulleys.
