This is a Calandra Racing Concepts Pro-Strut 1/12 Pan Car front end kit, intended for use with any 1/12 Pan Car using a ASC type front bolt pattern, with the exception of the Associated 12R5.
CRC's new Pro-Strut front end is very adjustable and easy to build. The metal parts are pre-polished for super smooth movement and the camber and caster are both very easily adjusted. Plus the new Pro-Strut Front End features a wide range of ride-height adjustment. From bare rims to big tires, it is easy to reach legal ride height settings.
The Pro-Strut front end also features a lower arm with adjustable pivot ball tension. Just pop the ball in and tighten the clamp screw to get the perfect fit. As the pivot ball wears, you can further adjust the tension.
The new Pro-Strut has a dual aluminum axle and 1/8th scale style pivot ball camber adjustments. The pre-polished pivot upper ball is inserted through the steering block and the play is adjusted with the slotted plastic insert. The polished ball combined with user-adjustable play makes for a super smooth, slop-free upper suspension point.
The new "dual-axle" allows the user to flip between inline and trailing axle suspension formats. This is perfect for both oval and road racers.
The Pro-Strut front suspension uses a removable upper cap to facilitate easy caster adjustments. Just remove the screws, slide the shims where you want them and re-install the 2-56 button head screws. The upper cap "clamps" the hinge pin to keep it from moving. No more fishing the hinge pin through the block and the shim washers only to lose a bunch of shim washers during the process.
As always, only the finest materials are used in the making of all CRC racing products. 100% carbon fiber, with no fillers, aerospace aluminum, and modern plastic composites.
