RudeBits DB1 to Be Released on 10 May


The new DB1 Kyosho-based mid-motor 2WD conversion will be launched on 10 May 2012. Designed by David Burton – an engineer for some 18 years, a racer for over 20 and a past BRCA National round winner – the conversion is appropriately named after him. Tested, developed and distributed by the RudeBits team – well known for their brass weights – the revolutionary chassis made its major debut at the BRCA National event at Stotfold on 14 April. Amongst the strongest field of drivers assembled in the UK, the DB1 had a great first outing and finished on the podium in the hands of Kyosho driver Kevin Lee.
