    Answer-RC Goes 1.10th

    February 19, 2010 - 04:25 by Kevin 0 Comments

    “Answer-RC are pleased to announce their entry into the 1/10th arena with a staple which we hope will show the start of 1/10th range. At first sight foam inserts may not look a very exciting concept but there is a great deal of research that has gone into these. Over the last 9 months several top drivers have been running a variety of samples of these to nail down what works best for them in a variety of conditions. You may have originally known these as Panic RC foams. Answer-RC are pleased to announce that both 2wd BRCA Champ and Euros TQ Ellis Stafford, alongside Kev Lee, John Spencer and a few other notables will be running these for 2010 and will be on hand at many meetings to assist you with foam choices. There will be two different compounds of rear foams and three for front giving you the full flexibility to experiment and see what suits you. The foam compounds and insert size are where the secret is… We finally settled on the foams to be used after much debate about the properties of each. One of the inserts is a “typical” tyre foam and the other two are of a very different nature to those currently available. In short utilising a closed cell technology and a speciality industrial foam to offer the new options. With regard the insert sizes, we opted for a fuller foam to better support the tyre for both improved side and forward bite – these are no compromise inserts. A full range will be available including 2wd and 4wd fronts.” Answer-RC
