The Radio Controlled Electric Powered 4WD Racing Car FANTOM 4WD produced by Kyosho in 1/10 scale Other series AWD drivetrain assembly kit, is classified in R/C Models - On-Road - Pan Cars
In august 1983, only 6 months after its debut, a brand new Kyosho machine blew its well-versed rivals away during the fifth JMRCA 1/12 Electric Racing vehicle Japan Nationals, held at a specifically built track at Nakayama Racecourse Chiba Prefecture. RC on-road racing ended up being changed for a generation by the 1/8 FANTOM 20 EXP 4WD motor racing vehicle, and its own bloodlines ran strong inside FANTOM EP 4WD. The FANTOM EP 4WD revives its glory days because the first on-road race model and 9th addition towards Kyosho Vintage Series!
The 1/12 on-road rushing scene of that time period featured many different designs particularly 3-point suspension system and 4-wheel independent suspension, 4WD ladder-chain drive + forward one-way bearing system that typically didn’t create front drive but drove the inside wheel when power was applied through turns for stable cornering and minimal drive loss. The FANTOM EP 4WD pioneered specs including the FRP chassis that created a suspension impact that delivered optimal weight balance on the inside wheel. The 2020 version model not just recreates the appearance and feel of initial, and keeps the superior cornering rate and security, even on low grip areas, with its part-time 4WD and front a good way. As with all Vintage Series models, each key component is in line with the initial design but was improved to handle the newest energy sources and deliver the FANTOM’s distinctive sharp management and control on contemporary RC circuits.
Experience high-performance driving because of the nostalgic avant-garde design and functional beauty associated with 1/12 scale FANTOM EP 4WD!
The world's first electric automobile to make use of a ladder chain drive and front side one-way bearing. The mechanical dish has also been machined with a mounting opening in which a Kyosho LeMans 240S rate controller (No: 37051, sold individually) could be installed instead of a rotary speed controller. Reproducing the principal energy and gratification of this initial Le Mans 480T, the Le Mans 480T Brushless engine (No.37033) with long shaft to fit the Fantom can be obtained as an alternative.
Kit includes the BW Spider human body that delivered victory on debut at Japan Nationals in 1983 using its short nose design and excellent aerodynamic balance creating high downforce for fast steering traits. Wing (No.EFW001) normally available as an option.
To carry out the increased energy of modern motors, the first resin front sprocket happens to be changed to an integrated device cut metal one-way bearing owner for superior durability and dependability through drive system.
Precision CNC machined engine mount is difficult anodized in white (clear). Minimal center of gravity is accomplished through less motor mounting place that matches compared to the device cut engine mount, that has been an optional upgrade during the time of the first Fantom.
The trunk axle comes with a height adjuster. Chassis height is modified 1.3mm up-down by reversing the mounting direction. Furthermore, the wheelbase could be changed 1mm by swapping the left and right adjusters, thus permitting modification of string stress.
Built with a 48-pitch gear differential integrating ball bearing that delivers smooth operation, despite the medial side force of this original works-spec.
Stamped FRP components have all been upgraded to CNC cutting. Independent servo saver mount plate found in subsequent models is also included as standard. Change of body mount with grommet screws on the radio dish allows chassis flex to be employed in combination with 4WD for sharp cornering performance. A corner axle can move freely, as included in Kyosho models since the Plazma.
Complete bearing requirements. The screw utilizes a hex kind that can be securely tightened. Includes wheel hub and wrench for diff modification.
The kit includes one set of pre-glued tires so a tire setter is not needed. Original sponge tires happen changed with rubber sponge for significantly enhanced hold and resistance to put on. Wheels happen changed towards the latest super tough nylon for increased durability
