- Adjustable suspension geometry front and rear. All aspects of the four-bar linkage suspension are tunable.
- Sintered brake pads and double ground brake discs for fade free braking and consistent brake feel.
- Convenient electronics tray for easy removal and for easy access to servos.
- Highly adjustable Ackerman geometry via optional steering knuckle plates.
- Monocoque suspension arms with reformulated material for increased torsional sti ness.
- Clamping servo saver nut with an aluminum servo saver arm for more reliable servo saver operation.
