The first product from a joint project between Italy Fenix Racing and kimihiko-yano.net / CRC Japan is now available. This 1/12th scale racing kit is known by two names -- G12 and Reference YT12-A -- but thankfully the innovation doesn't stop there. The cars significant feature is the V-LINK rear suspension that replaces the traditional center pivot design found in every other link pan car on the market. The car uses a CRC Pro-Strut front end with it's proven track record and adjustability. The car kit uses metrics fasteners everyone EXCEPT for the CRC front end.
The car kit features an aluminum chassis and is recommended for carpet racing. Kit comes w/ a ball diff (sphere diff).
Team CRC Pro-Strut front end is very adjustable and easy to build. The metal parts are pre-polished for super smooth movement. The camber and caster are both easily adjusted.
The V-LINK controls the roll with two links and side links instead of the center pivot ball. A total of 6 types of roll centers can be selected, and roll centers can be set under the main chassis. This was not possible with the conventional center pivot ball type chassis.
As shown in the figure, the roll center height can be changed by changing the angle of the V-LINK. When it is set to the lowest position (A1 in the figure), it can be set 5 mm lower than the general center pivot. Of course, it can be set to the same height as the center pivot. Lowering the roll center generally increases the mechanical grip, and the V-LINK is smoother because the roll movement is not restricted to the center pivot, and the 4 wheel steering (4WS) effect that can be adjusted by the length and height of the side link is more effective than ever.
