New from Capricorn RC:
Ready for the 2019 racing season, the new Capricorn TE04 is built on the solid foundation of the TE03. Designed with the intent of spending less time in the pits and utilizing track time to the maximum to find the small details that will help pro and novice racer alike improve their performance on the track.
Starting with new suspension mounts and precision quick change roll center adjustment shims, the new design will allow racers to quickly make precise changes to find that optimal setup.
Built into the split suspension mounts are additional holes for a carbon brace to further tune the grip and feel of the TE04. There is also the option of the bulkhead to bulkhead standoff to further tune the chassis stiffness.
The new split mounts also offer a further inboard mounting position for the ATS ball stud giving the optional system a more consistent and linear feel from the rear of the car.
The new upper bulkheads and camber brackets also are able to be shimmed with new precision quick change shims for finding that optimal camber link length or matching any track width change.
With a new concept for the motor mount to servo mount brace, the TE04 uses a unique carbon stiffener with adjustable column position to further tune the stiffness and response from the center brace allowing the racer to fine tune the feel exactly to their liking or to better keep up with changing track conditions.
