New Lola Body

We've been looking for a body with a lot of downforce for the shorter tracks. Rony Racing has come up with a "mini-Lola" that looks just what we want.

Keep in mind that the bottom 2 shots in that picture appear to be a 1/8 car that they modelled the Mini-Z body after. The proportions are similar, but not exactly the same due to the packaging constraints of the Mini-Z chassis. Looks good though!

Still pre-production - but release date getting closer

The last months have been filled with testing and evaluation of different setups. Small but very important changes have been made during the process. Geometry for the side damper, stiffer upper plate and softer rear springs to mention a few.

Your design looks awesome, very similar to a spring 1/12th scale car. Did anything ever come of the RONY body? I tried contacting them myself but they said there is no US agent to distribute them and shipping for me to buy one myself would be very high. Curious to know????

Sorry but I can't help you out with this - Inzane Racing is a Swedish company.
I'd try to convince Reflex Racing to import the Rony bodies - they seem to me to be the best small scale racing company in USA.

Pics of the prototype chassis


Comparison with the old Pro27 2/3AA chassis - 4mm shorter wheelbase and 30 grams lighter.





Video from the test track where most of the testing is done.

More pics on the Swedish PocketRocket site >>

Associated RC12R





The soon to be released new Associated RC12R is making its first public appearance at this weeks Snowbird Nationals in Florida.
The link chassis design and single side damper looks familiar .

The Pro27AAA looks really excellent Inzane. Very cool.
How does the link chassis design and (more interestingly) the single-side damper work?
Also, about the battery setup:
Do you de-solder the 4-cell battery pack and charge each cell individually each time you work on the batteries?

Insane.

Pun aside, it looks really great. I'm curious, why does the rear pod "adapter" plate only use two holes of the 3racing bulkheads? Lighter weight vs. greater rear pod stiffness...?

Felix- I think I see gold bullet connectors, so I'd assume the battery pack uses a standard hobby-grade peak charger.

We haven't found lack of stiffness to be an issue.
The original plate from 3Racing works fine, so to keep down the production costs we opted for this solution.
We are not trying to compete with the lower cost chassis - we are aiming for the serious racer that wants the best there is in this scale.
I'm sure the competition will be tough with Kyoshos, Grayscales and Sinisters on the track .

Link cars goes back to the late eighties. I ran a CC Lynx - I think it was 89 - that was the first link car to my knowledge.
Single dampers is nothing new either.
What's interesting is that a hard core T-bar supporter like AE joins the link car trend.
So the bottom line is - AE "stole" the concept - just like we did ... Or maybe we just refined it

As I said - GMTA 8)
