PR Racing S1 V3R Evo 2WD buggy

See: PR Racing

PR Racing have introduced the new S1 V3R Evo 2WD buggy. The main focus has been to make the car smoother and easier to drive on track, and this has been achieved with a revised 2.5mm thick -5mm length 7075 aluminium chassis. In addition new insert type hangers have been introduced, and in conjunction with the chassis design allow for much lower rear roll centre, keeping the car much flatter on track with smoother rotation. New Ackerman geometry, and new CNC rear hubs with longer link positons also improve on track driveability. A new motor mount has been produced to lower the motor 2mm into a recess in the chassis, and makes a particular difference on today’s high grip tracks. In addition to all the geometry and mechanical changes, the V3R Evo has been treated to a new body, designed to look sleek and offer more steering with it’s much larger forward mounted cabin.
