On the last 4 racing session the “T” series RS5 touring cars dominated national and International racing scene:

Won many national championships.

Broke track record and TQ at the 2010 & 2011 European Championship.

Won three times in a row the EFRA European championship (2011, 2012 and 2013)

Became Vice World Champion in 2013.

Won three out of four EFRA GP’s in 2013.

 

All of these results show the potential of our unique Carbone-Car concept. A concept, which is completely different from
any other 1/5 scale cars. The RS5 touring cars winn races at all grip conditions, from the high-grip European championship
tracks, to the slippery national tracks (Argentinian Champion 2013, Spanish Champions 2013, etc.) and the car is also
fast at zero grip-or in rainy conditions (winning all Rainy EFRA GP races at 2013).
The RS5 cars are well known about the robust construction (as the German nickname “The Panzer” shows) Thanks to
our unique Carbon-Alloy hybrid chassis concept, we can make a robust and lightweight car and we do not have to under
dimension some part of the car. Like our motto says “development never ends…”, we always investigate and test new
ideas, to make our cars faster and better. The upcoming model, which is the T14, also developed regarding this
criteria’s. We talk a lot with our Customers and Team Drivers to know, what we need to change on the car to make it
better. The most critical issue we found was the accessibility of servos. To solve this was a very challenging
job, because the Carbone-Monocoque chassis gives us very limited place and we did not want to change our successful
design dramatically. We would like to thank Mr. Tommaso De Battisti, who helped us with his clever design ideas. To
increase the performance of the car we are dedicated to improve the torsion of the chassis (Flex). The RS5 touring car is
the only car on the market which offers unlimited flex adjustments options, from the 100% stiff to the very flexible
setup. During this year we made a lot of test with the Ackerman positions. The outcome of these test was that we
created new stronger steering arms with other Ackerman positions. We dedicated to change some parts of our shocks,
to reach better lifetime and performance. We changed all transmission gears and many more…

 

The full list of the modifications that we made on creating the T14 Touring car:

 

T14-430-17
New Brake Calipers
 
New brake Calipers (same as the F14) to improve brake efficiency. The new caliper has smaller piston to make the brakeing even more precise. With the new brake the tires lock-up later in the barking zone and allow you to brake into the apex of the corner. On the new brake caliper the spring pushes the piston directly back to its neutral position, instead of pushing the brake pads and then the pistons. With this solution the brake deflates quicker, and the brake pads do not bend. To reduce the bending of the outside pad we mount an alloy stiffener plate, fixed with 3 screws. The middle screw is mounted coaxial with the piston, to avoid any deformation of the outside panel and the outside brake pad.
T14-430-16
New Steering characteristic
 
New front steering arm, and new steering track-rod ball joints. Thanks to the new Ackerman position on the new steering arm the car will be more stable in the fast corner without losing on grip in the slows. The new steering arm is more robust compared to the older version, and has thread instead of holes to make the ackerman positon change more easy.  With the new smaller steering tack-rod ball joint the steering lock is increased by 5 degrees to make better grip in sharp corners.
T14-430-11 T14-430-13
T14-430-21
New wishbones, stabi and ball joint
 
New rear lower wishbone with stiffener rib. The stiffener rib increase the rear antiroll bar efficiency. It has also a new curved design which garants more place for the gears. New lightened rear upper wishbone, which has bigger clearence to the big-bore shocks, so it makes shock absorber re-mounting easier. New zero play Steel/Brass hybrid ball joints for front and rear lower wishbones for longer lifetime and performance. New rear anti roll bar balls and shafts, with better torsion performance. New harder front antiroll bar to increase traction and to reduce the roll of the car.
T14-430-12 T14-430-22
T14-430-23
New drivetrain gears
 
New hard coated fine tooth (module 1) steel gears for clutch bell, lay shaft and differential. To make the drivetrain more efficient. Standard clutch gear is 35t (34 and 36 optional), lay shaft big gear 62t, standard lay shaft small gear has 24 teeth (23 and 25 optional) and 72t differential gear (compatible with any RS5, FG and SCS differentials). 
T14-430-07 T14-430-05
T14-430-25
New diff. carriers and rear track-rods
 
The new differential-carrier is 40 grams lighter than the previous version. The diff changing procedure is faster and simplier. New full aluminum round type rear track-rod ball joint with steel ball inserts, to garant more place for the rear shocks.
T14-430-09 T14-430-28
T14-430-06
New top deck and fuel tank
 
New 3 piece top deck for better accessibility of the servosand for increased flex adjustments. The middle top deck needs to be used, only when the car adjusted to 100% stiff configuration. To remounting it you need to unscrew 3 screws and 2 nuts. Without the middle top deck, each servo can be changed easily. New white/transparent increased volume fuel tank, with quick-refueling cap and with new symmetrical design.
T14-430-10 T14-430-26
T14-430-32
New chassis cuttings
 
To improve the efficiency the “Flex-Windows” of the car we dedicated to make 4 piece of cuttings on the chassis sides, where the fuel tank loketed. When the “Flex-Windows” on the new split top deck are open, reason of this cuttings the chassis can torsion more then with the old closed design. This flex setup is very useful at low-grip, or at bumpy tracks.
T14-430-19
New brake master cylinder
 
New bottom mounted brake master cylinder. It is also the holder of the servo tray. With this design, the accessibility of the servos are better and the center of gravity lower, reason of the brake cylinder bolted directly to the Carbon-Monocoque chassis, instead of the top deck. This setup also minimalize the flexing between the servo > servo plate > brake cylinder, to make the barking even more precise. The push-rod arm of the new cylinder is longer and has higher level arm ratio to make the brake-force and brake-balance adjustment more precise.
T14-430-15 T14-430-27
T14-430-20
New servo tray and servo arms
 
The new servo tray, with alloy servo mount plates, allow you to mount/remount the servos from the top easily. On the alloy servo mount plates has screw threads, so no nuts needed under the servo tray, to make the servo change very easy. New aluminum, ultra-strong servo arms with perfect fit and tightening screws. The brakes are pulled by an special double ball-joined linkage, that can slide in when throttle move is underway.
T14-430-14 T14-430-24
T14-430-29
Servo change
 
Each servo can be changed easily with unscrewing his 4 screws, and his linkage and disconnecting his connector cable. When the car was used with 100% stiff configuration, then before the servo change the middle top deck need to be unscrewed with his 3 bolt and 2 nuts. With this method any of the 4 servos can be changed easily.
T14-430-30
Complete servo tray change
 
The complete servo tray can also dismounted easily by removing the *middle(when was used) and the front top deck (totally 5 screws and 2 nuts when the middle top deck was used)(when the middle top deck was not used, then only 3 or 5 screws), disconnecting the steering and throttle/brake linkages, unscrewing the 6pz fixing bolts of the servo tray (4 from top and 2 from bottom) and the servo tray is out.
T14-430-31
Connector cables
 
The new servo tray layout is designed so, that between the bottom of the servos and the carbon chassis is a place where a servo extension cable (for each servo 1pz so totally 4pz) can be placed and fixed, with double side tape to chassis plate or to the servos. In this case during a servo change not need to open the receiver box to unplug the servo conectors, and that reason the servo change or a servo tray change is very easy.
T14-430-33
New front bumper
 
New CNC machined 2 piece plastic front bumper. The bottom part is designed so, to safe the front end of the carbon chassis from any damage, becouse the bumper loll under the line of the carbon chassis and it is also angled, to make the possibility for lower front right height.  The top part of the bumper will help to protect the car during an impact. With the new clips system, to remount the bumter foam during an adjustment of the car is very easy.
T14-430-18
Updated shock absorber
 
Updated shock-absorber, with polished, hard coated shaft, to avoid bending and increasing performance and lifetime. New alloy bottom closing cap. New volume compensator membrane with reinforcement ribs. CNC machined, 4 holes, conical piston made by Derlin.
