Schumachers new "Eclipse 4" 1/12 circuit car is now with us and in stock on the website.
This car has some revolutionary design idea's, which include all new hex fit rear wheels. These enable faster wheel changes and allow more consistant flex all the way round the wheel.
Here is what Schumacher have to say about the model, along with specs and more pics.
This is going to be another world beating car from Schui!
Schumacher scored sensational wins in both the modified and stock classes at the 2020 LMP12 IFMAR World Championships with Marc Rheinard and Andy Murray.
Now Andy and the Schumacher Engineering team have applied their race winning knowledge to create the new Eclipse 4. The Eclipse 4 includes proven World Championship winning features such as an alloy chassis and a lightweight rear spool. New innovations such as big bore damper tubes, and single nut rear wheel fixing, make the Eclipse 4 even faster, lighter, and easier to maintain. The Eclipse 4 is the ultimate professional LMP12 racing chassis kit. The champions choice!
NEW - Revolutionary solid rear axle using single nut wheel fixing. Along with quicker wheel changes and easier use, the rotating and unsprung mass has been significantly reduced offering better performance. (Even when compared to CR721 Solid axle design). 18% lighter system overall.
NEW - Rear wheel design allowing the use of the new wheel fixing method. While also reducing mass, flexibility has been improved for more equal stiffness around the wheel.
NEW - Updated Alloy chassis included in the kit.
NEW - Refined top deck shape with slightly increased flex in the front end section.
NEW - Big Bore Side and Centre Damper design offering improved damping. They also give greater damping oil retention (less frequent maintenance required) and a compact and central design. Damper geometry changes have improved damping characteristics.
NEW - Stronger pod base helping to remove any twist in the rear pod and therefore tweak.
NEW - Front beam improving front end flex characteristics.
NEW - Front beam socket using o-ring fixing system to allow easy building and replacing of individual parts.
NEW - King pin with improved suspension action due to a new surface finish. Stiction from full droop vastly reduced and updated damping oil retention.
NEW - 1.5° Camber strap included in the kit.
NEW - Tyre truer adapter included to suit 1/12 front wheels and the new hex rear wheel.
NEW - Optional lightweight alloy speed control fan mount for 25mm fans.
- Compatible with all Eclipse ball differentials and CORE-RC CR721 Solid axle design when using JT2 range of wheel/tyres.
- Tweak free battery mounting using o-ring fixing with easy loop over design.
- Titanium steering turnbuckles included as standard.
- Thread inserts make working on the car quick and simple.
- Fully adjustable front end (track width, ride height, toe, camber, caster, damping, bump steer and ackermann).
- Rotationally balanced left rear wheel clamp.
- Lightweight independent roll and bump springs with low centre of gravity.
- Ultra-low motor position.
- Lightweight low centre of gravity CNC alloy rear transmission housings.
- Adjustable anti-squat and pro squat, independent of droop setting.
- Ultra-balanced rear pod assembly.
- 76t 64dp Kimbrough high efficiency spur as standard (options available).
- Full range of optional springs, front, side and rear.
- Fully adjustable body mounting system.
- Chassis balance pivot holes. For use with U3582 pivot set. To optimise left/right weight distribution.
- Extra low rear roll centre.
- Rear tweak adjustment via side springs.
- Adjustable rear ride height using interchangeable inserts with improved fitment (0.25mm increments).
- Lightweight rear droop adjustment.
- 1/12 scale Kimbrough servo saver with stiffener included as standard.
- All black aluminium M3 nuts as standard.
- Accepts a huge range of industry standard body shells, motors, batteries, and speed controllers.
Simple low down layout for best handling, combined with strength and prescision.
Hex fit rear spool takes the new JT3 type wheel, which is available in a range of tyre types and compounds.
Front wheels are the tried and trusted JT2 design.
