The USP2 shocks from the IF14-2 Team Edition are now standard items, further lowering the center of gravity and improving handleing! The drivetrain also features an aluminum differential outdrive and lightweight D.J. CVD joints as standard equipment for lighter weight and superior throttle response.
The proven suspension geometry provides stable grip and traction regardless of track conditions.
NEWLY DESIGNED USP2 SHOCK AND SHOCK TOWER
The latest USP2 shocks and special shock towers brought over from the IF14-2 Team Edition kit. This contributes greatly to the lowered center of gravity of the chassis.
NEWLY DESIGNED INTEGRATED REAR BULKHEAD
With a FWD chassis there is no need for a rear differential, so the IF14-2FWD RS features a rear bulkhead specifically designed for the FWD platform. This results in fewer parts for easier maintenance. New RS-specific design compatible with USP2 shocks.
ALUMINUM DIFF OUTDRIVE
Lightweight aluminum gear differential outdrives are now standard. Hard-anodized for superior durability. Lighter rotating parts contribute to improved throttle response.
LIGHTWEIGHT D.C.CVD JOINT
Lightweight D.C.CVD joint made of lightweight, high-strength super-duralumin (A7075). Throttle response is improved by reducing the rotating mass, while front tyre wear and understeer is reduced.
ADJUSTABLE REAR UPPER CAMBER LINK MOUNT
Adjustable aluminum upper camber link mounts are also standard on the rear, for greater setup freedom in the upper arm mount position.
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.
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.
The IF14-2FWD has a newly developed compact steering system that drastically reduces the space occupied by the steering system. This allows the servo, motor, and battery to be placed as close to the front axle as possible, achieving an ideal front-rear weight balance.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
LOWER BULKHEAD AND SUSPENSION MOUNT
The suspension mounts are now independent from the lower bulkheads and mounted directly to chassis. This increased stiffness around the front and rear bulkheads help to provide a more direct feel when driving.
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.
PRO GEAR DIFF
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 aluminium outdrives can be fitted to further reduce weight.
All turnbuckles are machined from duralumin and feature red anodizing. High strength and light weight 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 resistance
HIGH 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.
