Based on Infinity’s 2017 World Championship winning 1/8th nitro on-road platform comes the new IF18. An evolution of that winning package the car features a number of significant updates including completely new front and rear 7075 aluminium bulkhead designs that allow for easier access to the drivetrain components. Giving the car a new suspension geometry in combination with longer suspension arms for improved stability, the design has taken into account ease of access to drastically improve the ability to carry out maintenance. The geometry is fully adjustable using bushings and spacers included as part of the kit. Three Ackermann positions are available and all moulded parts are produced from a special composite compound to ensure the best performance without compromising durability. Front stabiliser is a piano-wire type operating through bearings that now feature a new plastic bushing to reduce wear.
The rear geometry is a completely new design. A narrow bulkhead allows the “super long” suspension arms to improve stability and provide maximum traction for the majority of track conditions. Roll centre, camber and track width are fully adjustable using spacers and bushings included in the kit. The rear stabiliser is a piano-wire type operating through bearings that now feature a new plastic bushing to reduce wear. The car is based on a high-quality aircraft 7075 aluminium alloy main chassis that is 5mm thick for maximum strength and stiffness. It is lightweight in strategic areas to assure the best component displacement and lowest CG with a perfectly symmetry design. The outer edges of the chassis have been beveled to provide the correct ground clearance during cornering. Design features allow the placement of additional weights to adjust the balance of the car and a carbon fibre battery plate is included in the kit. Other key features of the new kit include the inclusion of a lightweight clutch and 2-speed gearbox with 0.8 module for increased performance.
