A newly designed 1/10 scale electric FWD touring car based on the IF14-2 has proven its high potential in many races.
The ideal front-rear weight balance for a FWD touring car has been achieved.
The result is a model that balances cornering speed and traction at a high level and gives you easy and fun driving that is typical of FWD touring cars.
COMPATIBLE WITH BOTH SHORTY AND STANDARD STRAIGHT BATTERIES
The IF14-2FWD is compatible with both standard straight batteries as well as shorty batteries with excellent weight balance. You can enjoy with which ever battery suits your situation. Only for use with 7.4VLi-Po battery with a hard case.
NEWLY-DESIGNED FRONT AND REAR LOWER SUSPENSION ARMS
The new design of the lower suspension arms features an updated shape, length and material. Tyre grip has been maximized and corner speed increased offering faster lap times and easy control. The arm also incorporates a shock lever ratio adjustment system, which is one of the most distinctive and important parts of the IF14-2.
NEWLY-DESIGNED SHOCK LEVER RATIO ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM NEWLY-DESIGNED SHOCK MOUNT POSITION ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM
The newly designed IF14-2 suspension arms feature a new system built in making it possible to fine-tune the shock lever ratio. Coupled with the new shock tower design its now possible to change the shock lever ratio without changing the shock mounting angle. In this way you are able to adjust the spring rate without changing shock spring, offering even finer tuning possibilities. The system also allows for suspension geometry adjustments such as arm width to be made while keeping your shock settings unchanged.
NEWLY-DESIGNED USP (ULTRA SHORT PROFILE) OIL SHOCK AND SHOCK TOWER
The newly designed USP (ULTRA SHORT PROFILE) shock is now 3.5mm shorter than the original IF14, and has greatly helped to lower the center of gravity of the chassis. To keep the oil capacity and the shock stroke to a maximum the pistons are now secured with special flush fit counter sink screws. With the flat piston surface sufficient oil capacity and up travel at full stroke are maintained for a stable performance. The total length of the newly designed USP (ULTRA SHORT PROFILE) shock is now 3.5mm shorter than the original IF14. The USP shock greatly helped to lower the center of gravity of the chassis. To keep the oil capacity and the shock stroke to a maximum, the shock pistons are secured with special flush fit counter sink screws. With the flat piston top, sufficient shock uptravel at full stroke and sufficient oil capacity are maintained for stable driving performance.
NEWLY-DESIGNED SUSPENSION MOUNT
The suspension mounts continue to follow the IF14 inspired “separate” style but are now more lightweight and mount directly to a fixed suspension block on the chassis. Special shims can be placed between the suspension mounts and block to precisely adjust geometry.
NEWLY DESIGNED LOWER BULKHEAD AND SUSPENSION MOUNT
The suspension mounts are now independent of the lower bulkheads and mounted directly to the chassis. This increased stiffness around the front and rear bulkheads help to provide a more direct feel when driving.
NEWLY-DESIGNED ADJUSTABLE UPPER CAMBER LINK MOUNT
The new upper camber link mounts are now separated from the upper bulkhead. This allows for the camber link mounting position to be fine-tuned with spacers, offering a wider range of suspension settings and fine-tuning.
Standard in the IF14-2 is the Progear diff featuring ball bearing support on the diff shafts for smooth and stable operation over a long period of time. For easy maintenance the outdrive cups can be replaced without disassembling the diff body. Optional aluminum outdrives can be fitted to further reduce weight.
All turnbuckles are machined from duralumin and feature red anodizing. High strength and lightweight at the same time, helping support the hubs and maximize the grip of the tire.
HIGH-QUALITY BALL BEARINGS
High-precision ball bearings are used in all areas of the car. A Light oil-lubricated version is used for the IF14-2, which further reduces rotational resistanceHIGH PRECISION AND HEAVY DUTY STEEL 4.9MM BALL END
A heavy-duty, high-precision hard steel 4.9mm ball end with a very smooth ball surface is used throughout the IF14-2. Optional titanium ball ends are available offering a weight reduction of approximately 8 grams.
NEWLY DESIGNED SERVO MOUNT INTEGRATED MOTOR MOUNT
To achieve the ideal front/rear weight balance, the servo and motor had to be designed with a compact laid out. This was achieved with a motor mount with integrated servo mount machined from highly rigid A7075 material, one of the key components of the IF14-2FWD. In addition, a graphite motor mount support plate is installed to increase pitching rigidity, resulting in a very rigid motor mount system.
NEWLY DESIGNED ADJUSTABLE REAR CHASSIS STIFFENER
One of the most unique parts of the IF14-2FWD is the full-length graphite rear chassis stiffener. Extending from the center of the chassis to the rear of the rear bulkhead it allows you to adjust the rear pitching stiffness and chassis flex characteristics infinitely and quickly.
NEWLY DESIGNED INTEGRATED REAR BULKHEAD
With a FWD chassis, there is no need for a rear differential, so the IF14-2FWD features a rear bulkhead specifically designed for the FWD platform. This results in fewer parts for easier maintenance.
NEWLY DESIGNED BALANCING BUMPER WEIGHT (85g)
A special 85g balancing weight is mounted inside the front bumper. When the foam bumper is installed, it is completely hidden and does not spoil the cool look of the chassis. The chassis layout features the battery on the left side of the chassis with the electronics on the right side which together with the bumper weight provides an ideal front-to-back and side-to-side weight balance.
NEWLY GRAPHITE SEPARATE TOP DECK AND MAIN CHASSIS
The IF14-2FWD requires a well-balanced main chassis and top deck to achieve the ideal chassis flex and pitching stiffness for a FWD touring car and the IF14-2FWD features a separate top deck for the front and rear to help achieve this ideal chassis flex and balance.
