Press Release from Infinity:
Infinity announces the creation of an all new car that will awaken your passion for F1 racing with the release of the IF11 Formula chassis. The latest addition to the Japanese company’s growing range of kit offerings, that now covers four different categories, the car’s hybrid monocoque chassis resembles that of a full size racing car. This distinctive feature will have a huge appeal to Formula 1 enthusiasts but the design goes much further than being just an aesthetic feature. The IF11 boasts rigidity, strength and tuning flexibility to provide an excellent racing car. Kingpin, coil-spring front suspension and side link 3P rear suspension contribute to superb handling and high traction. The hybrid monocoque chassis has the perfect balance pushing performance to the next level.
Features of the IF11:
The front side of the chassis is a monocoque made from composite materials and the rear side of the chassis is made from a graphite plate. This structure was devised to combine the looks of the carbon monocoque chassis used for full-scale Formula cars with all the performance required for a racing car. The hybrid monocoque chassis has all these qualities in a perfect balance.
Due to the highly-reliable simple structure, set-up changes are easy.
This rigid graphite suspension arm has a solid structure with a fixed lower-arm and a movable upper-arm. The roll center and car ride height can be adjusted by changing the number of shims.
By replacing the eccentric bush, the caster angle can be adjusted to 3°, 6°, 9°, and 12° while the camber angle can be adjusted to 0.5°, 1.0°, 1.5°, and 2.0°.
A dual wiper steering arm is used for the optimum steering Ackerman. A servo saver comes as standard.
The long-type side-link helps maximise the grip when running rubber tires. With high-precision aluminium roll dampers, cornering is very stable.
The IF11 comes with a center shock, which has the same structure as that on the IF18. This center shock has excellent performance and reliability developed through high-speed 1:8 GP racing and provides superb rear traction.
The ball differential, consisting of high-precision aluminium housing, provides smooth differential operation for high-speed cornering. The height of the rear axle can be adjusted by changing the number of shims and there are two wheelbase options to choose from.
The height of the rear wing can be adjusted by changing the number of shims and the vertical position can be adjusted through 8 mounting positions. Making the rear wing settings easy and hassle free, this helps you quickly improve your lap times through race day. The same rear bulkhead can be used on the right and left for higher rigidity and better traction.
