Having teased the release of their first GT chassis back in February, WRC have today released some details on the upcoming GT4.1. A fairly standard affair for the GT class, it has been in testing for a number of months with a focus of quality parts, optimised weight distribution and easy to maintain and setup. The car sports low profile big bore shocks, a super narrow radio plate as well as a highly efficient two speed gearbox.
WRC Racing have introduced their new F18.4 1/10th EP formula chassis. Sporting a large number of changes over its predecessor, the car has an all new servo saver, servo mounting plate and new front lower arms for improved steering. A new carbon chassis plate accommodates the updated battery mounting system with quick battery adjustment with the adjustable battery stop. A new rear chassis pod, adjustable transversal shock absorber and an all new ball differential complete the updates.

As for my role, if you can name it, i’ll probably have my hand in it in one way or another. I have been assigned the role of making this brand what it will be in the America’s. Starting out that means everything from Racing, testing, and promoting on the track to the behind the scenes of working with distributors and shops to help them get set up. I will be creating educational videos to learn and showcase the platforms. I also will be the team manager for the offroad side of things as they currently offer 1/8th Nitro Buggy and Ebuggy with their SBX and SBXE.
