T12 car specification


At the end of the 2010 racing session we made the decision that we will make some big changes on our 2010 EC TQ touring car to make it faster and more easy to drive. Our idea was to create an prototype car with all our new ideas and see how it work.

The main idea was to reduce the roll center of the car drastically.

When we was reedy with the prototype car and we made the first test, we was amazed, what a big step we made.

After only 3 test day we go with the new car to the 2011 TC European Championship to Germany, and we was able to make the Pole Position, a new track record and we was able to win the  EC title. We was surprised from this fantastic result, because we was knowing that this car has a lot of more potential, that we can not test reason of the short time between the creation of the car and between the EC.

Only after the EC we hade time to test, our other ideas, like Big Bore shocks, other spring characteristic, Controlled Flex system, other rollcenter, other front anti roll bar…

All this new parts, was making the 2011 EC wining prototype car much better.

 

Explanation of the new features by the T12 car:


_T1 _T2 _T3
LL1 Center_of_Gravity LR1

_Ultra low Center of Gravity

LL2 LR2

_By all 1/5 scale car the engine is the heaviest part, so that reason we dedicate to _put the engine to the lowest possible position. With the low engine position we _reduce drastically the center of gravity of the car and that reason the car has less _roll movement, and the car become more stable at the fast corners and chicanes _and also has more cornerspeed.

LL4 LR4 _T1 _T2 _T3
LL5 LR5 RL1 Carbon-Alloy_hybrid_chassis_concept RR1

RL3 RR3

Carbon-Alloy hybrid chassis concept_

RL4 RR4


This new concept gives absolute symmetric stiffness to the rear part of the car._  The complete  rear part (behind the fuel tank) work like an “one-piece” unit._ Reason of this symmetrical  stiffness, give us the opportunity to put defined flex to_ the middle part of the car._

Other advantage of the Carbon-Alloy hybrid chassis is the heat dissipation of the_  Alloy rear  chassis part, that reason reduces the temperature of the engine._

RL5 RR5
_B1 _B2 _B3
_T1 _T2 _T3
LL1 Controled_Flex LR1

_Controlled Flex

LL2 LR2

_The torsion (flex) of the chassis is an very important part by the setup an 1/5 scale _car. You need an stiff chassis for height-grip tracks or for smooth tracks or for _tracks that has very fast corners. And You need an chassis that can  torsion (flex) _a bit for low-grip tracks or bumpy tracks or for tracks that has very narrow _corners.

_The T12 is the only car that gives You the opportunity to choice between an _completely Stiff setup or an Flex setup. By lousing 2 or 4 or 6 screws, the T12 _transform from an stiff car to an flex car. This 4 level of controlled flex setup help _You to find the optimal settings for every track.

LL3 LR3
LL4 LR4 _T1 _T2 _T3
LL5 LR5 RL1 Big_Bore_Shocks RR1
_B1 _B2 _B3 RL2 RR2
RL3 RR3

Big bore shocks_

RL4 RR4

By an bigger diameter shock, can flowing more oil through the piston. And that_ reason we can use softer oil to reach the same hardness what we was using on our_ old shock absorber, so that reason the car work better at bumpy tracks. The other_ advantage of the bigger volume shocks is the lower oil temperature, because they_ include more oil, that reason the oil not heated drastically like in a smaller_ diameter shocks, so the suspension of the car are more consistent._
