TUNED TO PERFECTION

The PRO5 is the ultimate electric touring racer. Completely adjustable down to the finest detail, it can be adjusted for any driving style on any race track. From roll center to wheelbase, camber to track width, every parameter of the PRO5 can be tuned to make the car completely dialled under any circumstances. The PRO5 has the capabilities to take you anywhere you want to go - as long as you're aiming for the top of the podium!

CHASSIS

At first glance, the PRO5 is a standard double-deck touring car, however it's only when you look closely that you notice the fine new details and all-new parts. The main chassis is cut from 2.25mm woven carbon fiber, fitted with 7075 aluminium bulkheads. The design of the motor and layshaft mount is all new, for better weight distribution and efficiency. A 2mm woven carbon fiber upper deck sits on top of the aluminum bulkheads, sandwiching the drivetrain in place. The PRO5 also features a woven carbon fiber floating servo mount and floating battery mount to allow the chassis to flex properly for consistent handling in all conditions.

DRIVETRAIN

A high-efficiency drive belt and alloy pulleys are standard equipment on the PRO5, and large 40-tooth pulleys at each end surround the new extra-large rear gear diff and the front solid spool. DCJ-style front universals and standard rear universals are driven by alloy diff outdrives for a supremely low rotating weight, and clamp-style hex adapters are securely fitted to the drive axles. The front hex adapters have an extra-thin narrow profile, allowing you to easily alter the front track width for an optimized steering feel for your driving style.

SUSPENSION

The suspenion features a huge number of updates and is full of completly new parts, including the thick woven carbon fiber shock towers, threaded aluminum big bore shocks and totally new suspension arms. New easy-access ball cups mean you can change roll centers quickly using shims, and of course a complete set of turnbuckles are fitted as standard equipment. With ultra-precise steering a requirement for all touring car racers, the PRO5 is fitted with reliable bearing-supported bellcrank steering for extra-smooth action, using alloy arms for strength and durability. The Ackermann setting is easily adjustable using orange-anodized shims, and the steering turnbuckles connect to woven lightweight carbon fiber steering arms
