WRC Racing, best known for their 1/10th F1 chassis, the F-One 200, have released the first pictures of their new 190mm EP Touring car. Another brand to enter the market this year, the STX has some unique features the most noticeable being the ‘upper’ deck which utilizes two plates of carbon running perpendicular to the chassis plate to create stiffness. Along the length of the braces are struts which can be removed to increase flex. The steering servo is centrally mounted as is the norm using a very low and lightweight solution, while the steering/Ackerman plate moves along pins instead of pivoting on a central point. We can expect complete details when the car is released at the beginning of December.
