The Schumacher Eclipse 3 1/12 On-Road Pan Car Kit is built upon an evolved version of the Eclipse 2 platform, using it's successful design elements and adding tweak free battery mounting, updated center pivot design, and a full length carbon fiber top deck and chassis. The appearance has been completely redone, with a dramatic revision making this model as attractive as it is fast. Assembly and maintenance, quality components and overall durability are all improved, the better to deliver the best driver experience and excellent lap times. 

NOTE: Wheels and tires shown in photos are for illustrative purposes only and are not included. See needed to complete list below for a full list of items required to complete the model. 

 

Feature:
  • Full Length top deck for adjustment of chassis flex, offering improved stability and pace in high traction. Stiffness options for different track conditions.
  • Tweak free battery mounting using o-ring fixing with easy loop over design.

  • Ceramic coated kingpins for much smoother suspension action, with improved damping longevity and camber consistency.
  • Camber strap design to allow for a lower body shell mounting position.

Schumacher Eclipse 3 1/12 On-Road Pan Car Kit
I have built many 1/12th scale carpet racers from the old school Tamiya RM01 Porsche to the Team Associated 12L to the most current model of Xray X12 2020. I have built many Losi buggies such as the 22 5.0 Elite to the Yokomo CAL3 and various other racing machines from reputable companies who have been in the business for decades. My most recent build was the Eclipse 3, an on-road vehicle produce from the Schumacher Team. I was pleasantly surprise at the ease of parts lay out by assembly bag number 1-20 per each step. I also took note of how each part and pieces were produced at a very high level of machinery from the carbon fiber parts to the CNC aluminum parts. The overall design gave me confidence that this vehicle could give me the winning edge over other cars currently in the 1/12th class, which is backed by world champion such as Marc Rheinard. I can't emphasize enough how well this kit came together but if you don't believe me, then just snap in a Slim Jim like when you are hungry, then you'll know what I mean when that hunger bites and you got the goods to put you back into the state of "feel good". That's how wonderful this kit was.
