R Factor Design Billet alu Precision Pit Board

“R Factor Design” is a newly founded company by ROAR National Champion and World Champion mechanic, Shawn Rayfield.
 The main focus of the brand is creating and offering high end pit equipment – made in the USA. The first product available is this Billet aluminium “Precision pit board” which is fully CNC machined to have an ultra flat work surface within .001 across the whole board. With a size of 17in x 12in (43,2cm x 30,5cm) it’s the most accurate pit board to assemble and tune your 1:12 or 1:10 cars on. 
The honeycombed backside helps to reduce the overall weight to ~3.5 – 3.75 pounds (1,5-1,7kg). 
A prototype of this exact board was used at the 1:12 IFMAR Worlds last December with Max Mächler’s World Championship effort.
