IFMAR World Champion 1:12
 

15-years-old Naoto Matsukura has become the youngest ever IFMAR World Champion after a dominant performance at the 1:12 Onroad Worlds in Bangkok, Thailand. The Japanese driver came here with an already impressive CV with back to back titles in his National Championship but faced with the best in the world, including all four Touring Car World Champions, he rose impressively to the challenge.

Hot property of Japanese manufacturer Team Yokomo, Matsukura was running Associated’s RC12R5.

Serpent S120 1/12th scale pan car

Serpent have released their long awaited 1/12th scale chassis, the S120. The S120 chassis consists of rear single piece aluminum motor pod and the 2.5mm thick carbon fiber chassis plate. The chassis is based on a T-bar system, which has a unique tweaking system that is damped by using a conventional centrally mounted shock absorber together with a laterally mounted floating monoshock. The front end of the car is completely adjustable and utilizes the now standard fixed lower suspension arms combined with active top wishbones, which together with kingpin mounted springs ensure that the car is able to corner at high speeds and soak up any small bumps found on the racing surface.

Associated RC12R5

The designers in Area-51 built the 12R5 on a 2.5mm woven carbon fiber chassis that utilizes a pivotball link rear suspension that allows for independent adjustments for chassis roll, bump and alignment. Having the ability to make these chassis adjustments independently gives the 12R5 greater potential to get the best possible handling from the car and the track surface. The 12R5 feature new shocks that have a through-shaft design making for equalized damping throughout the full stroke of the shock in both directions, without any unwanted rebound. The center shock tower has four mounting positions that split the spring rates for even finer adjustments. The new center shock also controls the chassis droop and can be adjusted on the car with a turnbuckle wrench, making it easier and quicker to get dialed in.

The 12R5's 'Active Strut' front end has been optimized, featuring symmetric components with adjustable caster and track width, as well as a new front axle with wheel nut. Factory Team blue aluminum servo mounts position the servo flat on the chassis for a lower center of gravity and include Ackerman adjustment spacers. The foam front bumper helps protect body and chassis during impacts.
