Chassis Focus – Andrea Pirani


Chassis – WRC GTX
Engine – OS Speed 2101
Fuel – MLC
Tires (handout) – Matrix Tyres
Radio/Servos – Sanwa/Futaba
Remarks – Andrea Pirani is running the soon to be released (May) and provisionally names GTX from Italian company WRC Racing. Only the 5th time driving the car and one of the first using a majority of production parts he is pleased with the car saying it has a lot of traction and with the drive train giving more rotation to the front and less to the rear. Another unique system is the rear braking system which mounted to the rear axle uses magnets to release the brake pads from the disk. Since arriving in Melzo, like most drivers he has gone to a stiff setup, at least in the rear, while making it softer in the front compared to his home track of Bologna. Pirani is also making his race debut with his new OS engine and pleased with his speed and consumption, able to make 5 and a half minutes, helped by the use of 16% fuel.
