Schumacher Atom 2 1/12th GT12 pan car

Schumacher have announced the soon release of their Atom 2 1/12th scale GT12 pan car. The all-new steel alloy chassis makes for a very low centre of gravity, excellent for maximum cornering speeds and the all-new slide pivot system is a low friction, bind free design that maximises rear traction while still offering an easier build and low maintenance. Based on the British Championship winning Atom the Atom 2 also hosts many other new features such as an adjustable LiPo position, floating servo mount, a lightweight pod assembly, a hub carrier design with improved geometry giving faster cornering with no compromise to drivability as well as a thread insert design making work on the car much quicker and simpler. The car, that will become available in a carbon fibre and S2 fibre glass variant – both featuring the steel alloy chassis – will become available by the end of September.
