Enter the GEN2

This is an R/C model assembly kit depicting the GEN2 car used from 2018 in the Formula E championship, the pinnacle of electric car racing. The sleek, high-tech body with cowled wheels is recreated in polycarbonate. Halo, mirrors and rear diffuser/bumper are separately molded components. Markings are included to recreate the Championship Livery car, and the model is based upon the shaft-driven 4WD of the TC-01 chassis.

Features

  • Highlights include the prominent diffuser. The realistic polycarbonate body is composed of eight parts.
  • Stickers are included to recreate the light blue markings of the Championship Car, with the user painting black and silver areas.
  • Front wheels are covered by fenders in a really striking design. Areas between fender and nose can be left uncut and clear if desired.
  • A separately molded plastic depiction of the halo adds realism to the cockpit. Side mirrors are likewise separate parts.
  • A separated rear wing, supported by individual stays, adds to the futuristic look.

TC-01: Seriously Low-Profile

This durable composite monocoque-frame chassis provides shaft driven 4WD from a central motor via front and rear propeller shafts, with oil filled gear differentials. 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension employs long arms, plus inboard setups front and rear with oil dampers actuated by push rods and rocker arms to allow the use of low-profile bodies. Adjust spacer width to easily alter camber, skid and toe angle settings. Both suspension arms and uprights are identical left, right, front and rear, for more efficient pit work.

  • The TC-01 features the motor in the center of the monocoque section, with power going to front and rear gear differentials.
  • A range of 1/10 scale R/C touring car bodies can be used on the chassis, making it a versatile addition to your fleet!
  • The position of the inline motor, with propeller shafts on hand to send power to the front and rear.
  • Long A-shaped suspension arms not only give an ultra-realistic look, they also endow the chassis with exemplary durability.
  • Spacers and shims can be used to simply and effectively fine-tune your model by altering toe, camber and skid angle settings.
  • High performance CVA oil dampers are actuated by a combination of rocker arms and pushrods in the inboard front suspension.
  • You may place in a brushless motor, and separately sold pinion gears can be used for gear ratios between 7.50 and 5.25:1.
  • Precision gear differential units are oil filled designs, allowing you to fine-tune performance with different viscosities.
  • Suspension arms and uprights are identical across the model, helping make your life easier when it comes to pit work.
