Iris ONE.05 Competition Touring Car

In addition to unveiling its first FWD 1:10 Electric Touring Car, Iris has simultaneously released the ONE.05 4WD Touring Car on which the front wheel drive is based.  The ONE.05 touring car is the second generation competition car kit that has been designed and developed entirely by Ruddog.  Based on feedback from customers and team drivers, the German manufacturer has improved several areas of the original Iris ONE.  While the ONE.05 is still based on the same concept as the ONE and uses most of the same drivetrain and plastic parts, it features several improvements to make the car faster and more durable.  It now has an updated and optimised shock linkage and a carbon fibre rocker arm that reduces roll when cornering.  New chassis locating pins on the bulkheads, motor mount and damper cases not only improve durability, but have also allowed us to redesign these parts and make them lighter, saving over 25g in total.  It still features an ultra-narrow bulkhead design and the efficient three-belt design for perfect weight balance and less belt tension compared to a two-belt design.  Many unique details, such as an optional direct mount aluminium fan, have been incorporated into the design of the Iris ONE.05 to give you an edge over the competition.

Iris ONE.05 FWD Competition Touring Car

German 1:10 Electric Touring Car manufacturer Iris has released details of its ONE.05 FWD which is based on the ONE.05 Touring Car, the second generation competition car kit designed and developed entirely by German company Ruddog.  It features a forward mounted motor and battery for optimised weight balance and performance. The central single belt drive has a machined aluminium pulley and is highly efficient for the low power 17.5T and 21.5T motors. It also has FWD-specific steering geometry to meet the needs of the FWD class, while still sharing the majority of components with the Iris ONE.05 touring car for easy and simple parts management. It now has an updated and optimised shock linkage and a carbon fibre rocker arm that reduces roll when cornering. New chassis locating pins on the bulkheads, motor mount and damper cases not only improve durability, but have also allowed us to redesign these parts and make them lighter, saving over 25g in total.  Many unique details, such as an optional direct mount aluminium fan, have been incorporated into the design of the Iris ONE.05 to give you an edge over the competition.

Iris ONE FWD/.05 Announcement

Electric Touring Car newcomers Iris has announced it will unveil the FWD version of the ONE this coming Sunday as well as details of an updated ONE.05 version of the 4WD chassis.  The original ONE Touring Car was officially unveiled 10-months ago and the release of a FWD kit is a logical move for the German brand and the car’s designer Andreas Myrberg given the popularity of the FWD category.  On social media Iris posted, ‘This Sunday, October 1st, we are thrilled to unveil the FWD version of the Iris ONE.  But that’s not all — we’re also introducing the ONE.05 TC car.  After careful consideration of feedback from our valued customers and team drivers, we decided to incorporate significant improvements not just in the Iris ONE.05 FWD car, but also in the ONE.05 TC version. Both cars maintain their foundational concepts from the Iris ONE, including the unique damper and spring system, but with enhanced performance and durability. Join us for the release of both cars on Sunday, October 1st, at 4 p.m. CEST.

Iris ONE V2 Suspension Arm Shock Mount Set

Iris has released a V2 Suspension Arm Shock Mount Set for their ONE 1:10 Electric Touring Car.  The upgrade is engineered for high-grip tracks to reduce car roll and improve damping characteristics.  There are two variants for mounting the carbon plates. The Standard-Version, the turnbuckle mounting hole on the outside position on the arm.  This can be used with the standard turnbuckle and ballcup.  On the alternative-Version, the turnbuckle mounting hole on the inside position on the arm.  Ballcup and turnbuckle have to be shortened in length.  This variant is more progressive than the standard variant and even better for high-grip tracks.
