Rear motor pod, chassis
The strong basis is formed by the 2.5mm thick carbon fibre chassis plate with
supports enabling a forward or backward battery position, and enough space for
all the valuable electronics.
The newly designed motorpod is a beautifull combination of high quality machined
alu brackets and top quality carbon fibre parts, bolted together to create an
ultra stiff rear pod. The motor-bracket allows the brushless motor to be mounted
in the optimal position for car balance and offers good heat dissipation as
Central shock absorber
To aid rear traction under acceleration and to absorb bumps, the S100 Link sports
a centrally mounted shock absorber. Supplied with a soft spring, the pre load
of which can be adjusted, the front mount of this shock absorber is used for
adjusting the rear down stop and range of movement between the chassis and motor
Rear ball differential
The S100 Link comes supplied with a durable and high performance ball differential.
Easily adjusted by a plastic nut, accessible through the right rear wheel, the
differential uses high quality steel balls and plates and is supplied with both
suitable silicone and graphite grease for use during assembly and maintenance.The
rear ball-differential features hardened D-plates and carbon shaft assembly
for super smooth diff action.
Rear axle mounts
The lightweight graphite rear axle is mounted on bearings that sit within eccentric
composite inserts that allows the user to quickly and easily change the rear
ride height of the car simply by changing between inserts.
The kit comes supplied with all 9 inserts which range between 0 and 4mm, each
differing by 0.5mm and all are reversible for an even wider range of adjustment.
On the S100 WGT Link, the Lipo's can be mounted in 3 different positions by
simply changing the composite battery mounting position, perfect for adjusting
the cars weight distribution. The S100-LTR can be fitted with a short or long
The S100-LTR features a low carbon fibre bumperplate, with on top of that a
strong and durable shaped front bumper.
For securely mounting the body shell to your S100 Link, the car has strong plastic
body posts front and rear. All 4 posts are supplied with orange anodised adjustable
collars to precisely adjust the body's height and the posts are supplied extra
long to allow the user to cut them to their own preferred length. The front
body posts have also been designed to help protect the front of the carbon chassis
from splitting in the event of a heavy front impact.
In the S100 LTR you can mount the springs in the original outer positon, or
in the new more inside position.
The S100-LTR uses the same tube-system as on the S120-LTR. Precision machined
aluminium coated tubes connected with small ball-links. This system plays a
big part in how the car turns into a corner which can be adjusted through the
use of different oils .
The central section is a combination of elements to control the movements of
the rear end perfectly
- a central main shock, based on the famous Serpent RCC technology
- 2 spring loaded shaped side bars
- the tube system
These elements interact to create the best possible handling (roll, bump and
alignment) under all grip-conditions.
The new innovative pivot-system which connect sthe rear pod with the main chassis
allows for full free movement of the 2 main parts, thus avoiding any binding,
enabling the side-links to work optimally. With small shims the ride-height
can be easily changed.
- The S100 WGT comes supplied with a high quality miniature servo saver, which
through the use of orange anodised shims, has adjustable Ackermann.
The kit includes 3 alu servo posts to select from, which enable perfectly centered
mounting of any popular brand servo.
Pivot steering system / servo mounting
In the kit you will find 2 steering system options.
- The new balraced pivot link system with the servo on its side in longtudinal
direction, mounted with 2 small and light servo brackets.
- The standard alu servo post with micro servosaver. The alu servo posts have
eccentric holes, so any brand servo can be centered properly
The new steeringblocks feature and adjustable king pin inclination with easily
changed inserts, which are all 4 included
Upper front arm
Newly designed stiff composite front upper arms with pivotball and threaded
The front end of the car features 11 different adjustments to help you get the
most from your car, all of which are easy to adjust and measure. Fixed lower
suspension arms are themselves damped by the central strut which uses rubber
o-rings to take up the flex in this area, while the grey anodised aluminium
front upper wishbone mounts are available in different caster angles, the car
being supplied with 6 degree version as standard. With the steering block king
pins spring loaded, the cornering forces are channelled through the upper wishbone,
which enable the car to corner at high speeds.
The 1/10 scale S100 LTR pancar chassis uses a new design 2.5mm thick carbon
fibre chassis plate, a small and light top-deck, batteryholder, the rear podplate
and x-shape rear carbon bracket.
