NSR is glad to announce Corvette C6R - Press release info from NSR.

BODYSHELL:

The "Modellistic" attitude with high attention to details is an aspect which we consider to be fundamental and this has been fully adhered to, by special stamping process to realize the complete bodyshell in one piece still maintaining the true scale to the real car.

The body is injection-moulded plastic, fully detailed with clear plastic windows and injection-moulded plastic detailed interior. Inside the cockpit there is a four pieces driver, steering wheel, gear shift, fire extinguisher, roll-bar.

The body is fixed to the chassis by way of three screws, one at the front and two at the rear. It lies on top of the chassis, wheel arches clearance is 2mm.

Body dimensions are 63.5 mm. width, 141.5 mm. lenght, 35 mm. high.
The wheelbase is 82 mm. and the distance from center of rear axle to center guide is 99.5 mm.
The weight of the fully accessoried and painted bodyshell it is 22g. whilst the weight of the RTR car it is 87g.

LIVERIES:

The first 2 livery versions of the Corvette C6R are

1076AW CORVETTE C6R Test Car RED Limited Edition







1077AW CORVETTE C6R Test Car Blue Limited Edition







Third livery will be 1083AW Corvette C6R 12h Sebring 2010 #3 yellow. It will be on the market 1st July 2011











CHASSIS:

NSR Corvette has same technology of Porsche 997: completely new high-tech chassis and new anglewinder motor support with some solutions for best performance on all kind of tracks:



The chassis is completely new, it is nylon made "flat" design of 1 to 1,5 mm. thickness for maximum grip when cornering whilst capable to withstand crashes. The one piece front axle can move vertically and there are 4 x 4/40 screws for front axle ground clearance adjustments to suit any different track surface.



As innovative concept there is a "V" shaped drop arm 64 mm. long which by meaning of two screws can be fixed rigidly at a required height (from 0 to 4 mm. ground clearance with an M2 x 6mm. screw positioned in the forehead hole) to the main frame chassis or either be set for a certain free drop (with an M2 x 8/10 mm. screw in the other hole). Further more you can install a spring (like the ones used for the chassis suspension system) to enforce the "drop" effect.



Anglewinder motor support is totally new! We have optimised all the fixed dimension so much to grant the possibility to produce narrower cars. The side screw pods are now closer to the centre and specifically are symmetric to guaranty the best car balance. The sideways movements it has also being reduced by different support profile.

New triangular design; motor support is held in position to main chassis -according to our usual construction philosophy- by three screws (one in front and two at the side) which are only crossing it to screw into an independent ring. This allows the motor support to move independently from the chassis and in the desired amount (which can be set by simply unscrewing the screws from underneath). The motor is of an anglewinder configuration now reduced from 19 to 15 degrees only, from the rear axle! This is a new record!

There are new standard plastic cups and new cups for suspension springs. The motor weight is now exactly "balanced" with 50% on both side of the chassis. It means that performance is better than previous motor supports.

The chassis comes with a removable traction magnet, located just ahead of the motor; the neodymium magnet is round, 4mm high and 8mm diameter with 3 different mounting positions. The guide is counter-sunk well inside the drop arm guide to allow desired ground clearance by the use of thin spacers to be placed in between the guide itself and the drop arm. Rear pillow block height allows the gear to protrude only 0.5mm under the chassis level thus leaving 1.5 mm. gear/track clearance.

PICK-UP GUIDE

The guide is similar to that of current offerings, but it is low-profile (only 1mm thickness); exclusive adjustable height using .005" , .010" or .020" new spacers, to cater for racing on all types of plastic tracks, as well as wooden tracks with raised, flush or recessed braid/copper tape to optimise the braids contact. The pivoting shaft is 8mm. high for a free vertical movement (12mm for rally version). The brass connectors used to fix the wires to the guide are newly made, slightly bigger, chosen to guarantee a tough contact with our smallest thickness braids.

MECHANICAL

The components of NSR Corvette C6R are made up of the usual high-quality from NSR:

NSR1383 Medium black chassis
NSR1234 Guide drop arm 64mm Xhard Red
NSR1237 Triangular Anglewinder motor support Xhard Red
NSR3017 King EVO 21k long can motor, 21400rpm 322gr-cm
NSR4802 precision and very strong 54mm x 3/32" diameter axles
NSR5003 aluminium 17mm. diameter 'front - NO air system' 4/40 set screw front wheels
NSR5004 aluminium 17 mm. diameter 'Air System' 4/40 set-screw rear wheels
NSR5226 'No-friction' hard front rubbers 18 x 8mm
NSR5230 "Supergrip' rear softer rubbers, 20 x 11mm
NSR4803 Autolubricant & no-friction oilites
NSR7113 Extralight & no-friction 13t pinion
NSR6531 Extralight & no-friction 31t red Anglewinder gear
NSR4841 Low friction racing pickup guide

MOTOR

The motor for the Corvette C6R is the King EVO 21K, fully developed by triple World Champion Salvatore Noviello, made always by the same NSR philosophy: to realize high performance product without compromises! King EVO 21K motor has 21400 RPM at 12Volts with an excellent torque value of 322 gr/cm. The motor can is opened from both sides, it has cooling oval holes and the magnets are ceramics.

POLICY

'Ready to Run' is not enough!

NSR's objective is to make a car using modern technology, so high tech 'Ready To Race'. It needed to be competitive straight out the box, without any fiddling or modifications required to make it perform properly and we believe that this third car has also achieved this target. Our policy is to offer really a 'Ready To Win' car; we never like that people need to buy aluminium wheels to replace plastic wheels, soft rubbers to replace hard rubbers, or a motor to replace slow box stock motor…!

The NSR Corvette C6R although it is a completely innovative mechanical project, it benefit the experience we accumulated since the Mosler GT project which has dominated in the GT top class either in National and International competitions since it was born in 2006, and we believe it will start a new era where performances will be pushed even further.

Manufacturing costs and artisan labor in Italy are however significantly higher than China or East Europe, but NSR is very proud of the fact that all the models are completely and entirely built in Italy, thus allowing NSR to have absolute control over quality and to demonstrate our Country capability.

All NSR cars are assembled and tested exclusively into NSR Factory and only by NSR employers, so NSR can offer full warranty about final product. Retail price will be in proportion to the quality of product.

Has anyone been able to make one go smoothly? Several of us at Scale Models Racing have them and none of us have been able to eliminate rear end hop. Almost as though there is too much rear tyre grip. The back end of the pod carrying the axle seems flexible in relation to the the motor.

Helloooooo my lovely
just waiting for the postie to deliver you

Although somewhat concerned that you may have caught a nasty case of 'Ninco hop'....
still the Dr will sort that out soonish

Absolutely great looking car. Looking to add some decals to the blue test version myself. Do think the motor has a bit too much 'oomph' for the smaller (plastic) tracks though.

Otherwise

I already got mine and I can only say that this is a beautiful car with high quality tampo printing, a huge improvement since the first Mosler. Congratulations Mr. Noviello!

You must be racing on a high grip wood track right? In my opinion drop arms didnt work back in the 60s so Im not sure why they would work now. Make sure wheels and axle are straight before testing anything else. Nip up the drop arm tight. Does it hop? Nip up the pod tight, does it hop? It yes to both then I suspect the 322gcm motor is flexing open the pod between the rear axle carrier and the motor axle centreline. Place a U shaped piano wire brace along the back of the motor with the arms coming down just behind the bearing carriers. I solder the brace to the motor and glue behind the bearing carriers. But you can glue both if you want. As a general rule the more torque you run the stiffer you want the chassis.

Hi yet to get one of these but several at our club do have them (I was waiting for the Compuware livery which has just come out).

Whilst it is still early days with this new chassis setup they do appear to be quick maybe not Mosler quick but not far off of it. One of our club members has glued the rear of the pod to the back of the chassis which appears to make some difference.

Also it may be worth looking at the white hard chassis when this is released for high grip timber tracks.

regards

Yes Rick we are on a high grip wood track. Thanks for the tips which I'll be trying out. It is much better if acceleration is smooth but that isn't the object of excercise is it. The aim is to have rapid progress available at all times for it this that wins races. I don't think I should have to spend more money on a car that costs this much though.

we race 997's at our track (same motor as the Corvette).
iTs a high grip SLOTFIRE 6 LANE wood track.
Standard NSR 997 class , no changes to gearing etc.
We run all other classes at 13.8 v, however the NSR motor supplied in the 997 is pretty powerful so we run at 12 v instead.
Maybe dropping to 12 will solve a few problems.
Makes it a lot easier, less hop etc.
cheers

hello
fast reply:

- since some months all NSR AW cars have 13t pinion instead of 14t ; it is much better now :)

- please note that Corvette (also 997) has 20.5mm rear tire diameter for nice look only; we of course suggest to use smaller diameter rubbers (we use 19mm ourself)

- we raced in Belgium (i hope to receive pics) 24h with Corvette only; handout rear rtr glued and trued tires: 5016 rims 16" air system and 5011 extreme rubbers;
19.2mm diameter; we replaced 3 times only rear tires, so 6h for each pair; we guarantee that you can race @ 18mm diameter and car is really fast fast fast

this to explain that pillow block are not made for 20.5mm tires.... we install big tires only for nice look

sorry for english

best regards

Allan,
I ran my 'vette at Hawthorne Park last Friday night. The only things I've done to mine are glued and trued tyres (with a tiny bit of 3-in-1 treatment) and secured the motor to the pod with a tiny motor screw.
No hop, very fast car

Already sub 8.2 per lap, with a little more tweaking should be sub 8 seconds.

Hope this helps
Phil

Hi guys,

I had assumed that the motor would come fitted with motor mount screws as standard issue. But looking at the pics again there are no screws fitted?? Makes sense you would get hop with 322gcm of torque as there is no way that motor wouldnt twist in the mount without screws fitted. Im assuming M2 x 4mm would be about the right size?

cheers

Just bought one of these but haven't had chance to run it yet . It seems a strange decision to supply a "ready to race" car and recomend changing the tyres to a smaller size before use
