RS5 Modelsport have announced the soon release of their XT 2020 large scale gas touring car kit. New for 2020 are an updated front suspension geometry that will allow for faster lap times while making the car easier to drive at the same time. Coming with the updated geometry are new spacers, asymmetrical ball joints as well as new front spring. New in the suspension department is also the ability to use three different wheelbase settings that allow to fine-tune the car’s weight bias in order to make the car’s handling more agile or to create more stability. Also new is an updated battery tray for the use with standard hardcase shorty LiPo battery packs with the design of the tray allowing to use front, centre or rear battery positions, again enabling the driver to fine-tune the weight balance. Other features include a zero-play servosaver and updated aluminium brake pistons that improve braking force and feel while allowing for easier building and maintenance of the whole brake system. The brake upgrade is also available for the 2019 car as is an upgrade set for existing 2019 chassis kits.
RS5 have release first renderings of their forthcoming XF large scale formula car. Designed for full compatibility with both Zenoah and Beast engines, the car furthermore features a monoshock front suspension for better accessibility, a monoblock front suspension rocker holder for maximum stiffness as well as a ball-centring servo saver, fully adjustable suspension including castor and also an easy diff change system using four screws. The kit also comes with steel or brass-steel balljoints for the A-arms and an all-in-one radio plate that houses the servos and receiver box for easy setup, cleaning and maintenance.
RS5 Modelsport introduce the follow up in their successful line of 1/5th scale touring cars, the T15. With a recent push to use ultra soft compound front tires, this new car has been developed with, among many other things, additional setup options to help tune out front mechanical grip if needed. A weight distribution change to increase the rear end grip of the car they created new wishbones that are offset to the front. With this modification the complete centre part of the car has been offset rearwards creating an more rear heavy car, without adding any extra weight. On the alloy chassis under the rear differential there are now 4 threaded holes to allow the user to mount additional weights to the car in this beneficial position.
