ARC has announced the release of the new R11F front-wheel driven 1/10th scale touring car kit. The car builds on the proven R11 2019 4WD touring car, sharing over 95 percent of the parts which makes parts storage easy when running both classes. The car utilises a 2.25mm carbon fibre main chassis combined with a 2.0mm upper deck, while an optional 1.6mm carbon or an aluminium upper deck allow to fine-tune the chassis’ torsional flex characteristics.
The upper decks of the R11F and the R11 2019 are similar, further helping to minimise parts needed to run both cars alongside. On the transmission side of things the R11F features a belt-driven drivetrain with an oil-filled gear differential while the battery compartment allows for five different configurations such as side and cross alignment standard packs, side or cross alignment shorty batteries and also an inline/centre placement of shorty battery packs.
