Chassis focus – Francesco Tironi


Chassis – Capricorn LAB-C02
Engine – Capricorn SQ-R
Radio/Servos – KO Propo

Remarks – Like Greiner, Capricorn’s Italian driver Francesco Tironi has chosen to use the solid axle here in Kirchberg, this being an option he very rarely uses. In the post-qualifying free practice he also tried a Protoform P56 body which he will use for the main event as it seems to give the car more on-power steering. Francesco is testing a rear camber link that doesn’t feature the classic upper arm, this is intended to get more flexibility and add rear traction. On his car you can also spot some white ergal parts, that come from a pre-production batch. We understand that the official Capricorn driver tests the quality of each batch himself before sending the parts to be anodized, quality control being one of the main concerns for the Italian factory.
