Infinity IF14-2 & IF18-2 Option Parts

Infinity has released new option parts for its IF14-2 1:10 Electric Touring Car and IF18-2 1:8 Onroad chassis.  For the Team Edition of the IF14-2, the Japanese company has a new low friction rear belt.  Intended for ‘Stock’ class racing, it is made of a softer material than the kit’s standard black belt allows for better throttle response.  For IF18-2, they have two new rear upright options.  Bearing support rigidity has been greatly improved by increasing the roundness of the bearing cavity area as much as possible using a special molding process that has never been used before.  This provides a higher consistency of rear traction.  The Hard version is made with carbon mixed material to greatly increase the rigidity of the parts. The rear upper arm and wheel shaft support are more rigid, and rear traction is improved at all speeds.
