Traditional touring cars are designed for use with 2s LiPo in line with a lot of the racing standards set by the racing organisations. But with the advancement in both LiPo and Brushless power systems technology, the DR1S was designed to handle power thrown at it much higher than the traditional 2s LiPo and 540 sized motors.
The DR1S was designed with the goal to handle all of that power. From Circuit racing to drag racing and 2s lipo to 6s lipo, the drivetrain was designed to deal with all of these high powered systems!
For Drag racing application, this car was designed to withstand the power which the current 1/8th power plants are able to generate. The height adjustable wheelie bar was designed to minimise launch times and stabilise the car after launch.
