Chassis Focus – Dario Balestri


Chassis – Capricorn Lab-C02
Engine – XRD F12
Fuel – Runner Time
Tires (handout) – Matrix Tyres
Radio/Servos – Sanwa/Savox
Remarks – Former European Champion Dario Balestri is running the Capricorn LAB C02 for only the 2nd time here in Melzo and is still learning the setup and finding the feeling for the car, yet despite that has TQ’d the 2nd round of qualifying. Also running the XRD F12 engine, having ran Novarossi all his career, he is having to get used to how to set the motor as well as adapt to the power delivery. In terms of setup he is running gear diffs all round with 500k up front and 150k in the rear and a medium stiff setting on the suspension. One interesting piece on the car is the tower of foam on the throttle servo used to stop the body tucking under in the high speed corner at the end of the main straight.
