  • Q2 1/18 size

    MicroCute - Q2

    Based on the legendary old first design platform, MicroCute presents the improved and refined Q2 redesigned with high-performance racing in mind. The Q2 progressive design embodies an enhanced driving experience...from the purpose-built performance chassis... to the unique revolutionary MF Technology top deck... to the externally-adjustable ball diffs... to the race-oriented wheel mounting system. The Q2 was borne from racing to challenge your racing skills on any track.
     
  • Q2 - CNC Aluminum Bulkheads

    MicroCute - Q2

    Ultra-lightweight Aluminum Bulkheads The ultra-lightweight bulkheads have been carried over from the Q2 and are a work of engineering art, where luxury meets simplicity and practicality. The bulkheads are CNC-machined from Q2 alloy aluminum and are strategically machined to provide the lightest possible skeletal support framework for the car. Thanks to the ultra-low platform it was possible to create the lowest, smallest, and lightest bulkheads ever. The bulkheads are color-coated in a distinctive silver color.
     
  • Q2 Differentials-Ball

    MicroCute - Q2

    The efficiency of the drivetrain depends highly on the performance, externally-adjustable ball-differentials. The new ball-differentials are molded from specially-mixed composite material which ensures longest life and minimal wear of all parts. The ball differential features high-precision steel diff balls, machined and polished diff rings, a small axial bearing, and supporting ball-bearings. The ball differentials are factory assembled and adjusted to ensure maximum efficiency right out of the box, though proper break-in is very important to ensure proper operation and long life.
     
  • Q2 - Drive Belts

    MicroCute - Q2

    The 1-belt 4WD drivetrain concept provides maximum efficiency and highest performance using drive belts for ultra-high durability. Narrow (3mm) front and rear drive belts have been specially ground for minimum thickness and flexibility.
     
  • Q2 - Servo Saver

    MicroCute - Q2

    The steering system is very precise and gives you all the confidence that the car will steer exactly where you want and need. Thanks to the included robust, spring-loaded servo saver, your servo will not suffer the effects of heavy crashes. The steering system is handled through an adjustable steel turnbuckle, with steering blocks featuring optimized Ackerman positions.
     
  • Q2 - Ball Bearings

    MicroCute - Q2

    The Q2 1/18 features 20 premium high-speed ball-bearings in the super-smooth and efficient drivetrain. All the high-tolerance ball-bearings are degreased and lightly oiled with Aero Shell Fluid 12 for maximum smoothness and long life. All ball-bearings are selected and inspected by the MicroCute.

 

  • Q2 Proven Suspension Geometry

    MicroCute - Q2

    Proven Suspension Geometry The front suspension arms allow 3mm adjustment of front arm position. From the narrow arms, through the tiny front and rear suspension blocks, to the small and robust steering blocks, every suspension part has been specially designed and optimized to provide responsive racing characteristics in all racing conditions. Over the years Q2 has successfully gained and utilized extensive suspension geometry knowledge and self-developed suspension stiffness technology, which have been utilized when designing suspension parts. The ultra-lightweight suspension parts are molded from a special composite material that makes the parts very light yet very durable to withstand the rigors of high-performance racing.
     
  • Q2 C-hubs

    MicroCute - Q2

    The Q2 C-hubs are carried from the basc design C-hubs as well and feature large openings for quicker & easier assembly/disassembly of the CVDs. The entire CVD assembly can be easily inserted/removed through the C-hub without the need for disassembly. The large openings prevent collision of CVD with C-hub in serious crashes and are optimized for use with optional ECS drive shafts. The C-hubs are available in all standard caster angles ( 7< ) and are also available in two different hardnesses that are optimized for particular racing conditions.
     
  • Q2 Rear Uprights

    MicroCute - Q2

    The rear uprights feature built-in 0< toe to ensure stability and prevent suspension geometry changes in hard crashes. There are two different roll center positions on the rear uprights, and more roll center positions can be easily adjusted by adding shims between the upright and the turnbuckle ball joint. The rear uprights feature small but robust 5x10x4 ball-bearings to minimize unsprung weight.
     
  • Q2 Steering Blocks

    MicroCute - Q2

    The small and tough steering blocks each feature positions. The front steering blocks also feature small but robust 6X10 ball-bearings to minimize unsprung weight. The steering blocks are available in two different hardnesses which optimized for particular racing conditions. The Q2 includes hard hardness (H) uprights that are well proven to provide a solid and stiff suspension for foam-tire racing.
     
  • Q2 Quick-Turn system

    MicroCute - Q2

    Q2 Quick-Turn system The hugely successful Q2 turn system has been carried from the basc design, it being another innovation from the design boards of MicroCute RC Engineering Department. Thanks to the fully-adjustable turn system in a matter of seconds you can change the steering characteristics by adjusting the servo saver to one of preset Ackermann positions. The servo saver comes factory pre-built, guaranteeing exceptionally smooth, responsive, and precise steering. The alloy central shaft features a pre-installed strong preload spring.
     
  • Drive Belt Adjustment

    MicroCute - Q2

    Drive Belt Adjustment The one-belt 4WD drivetrain concept provides maximum efficiency and highest performance using drive belts adjustment for ultra-high durability. (3mm)drive belts setup fit running.

 

  • Q2-Drive Shafts

    MicroCute - Q2

    With high-competition performance in mind, the rotating mass of the drivetrain was reduced. The Q2 features lightweight metal drive shafts machined from premium, hard-anodized and additionally black coated for stylish looks. The metal drive shafts are designed for use in the front and rear, and come in both lengths specifically for 1/18 size
     
  • Q2 Anti-Roll Bars

    MicroCute - Q2

    The Q2 easy recognition the anti-roll bar has laser-engraved stripes (representing each thickness) for easy and instant recognition. Optional anti-roll bars are available for super-fine and precise anti-roll bar adjustment.
     
  • Q2 New-Wheel

    MicroCute - Q2

    New compounds starting from rubber foam sheets made with a spacial process, they are treated to improve their grip and life, guaranteeing the highest performance on any RC model type and on any track. They are produced as standard line a three-ring tyre glued wider onto the wheel and then it is trued on both sides to guarantee maixmum regularity and balance.
     
  • Q2 - CNC Motor Mount

    MicroCute - Q2

    The Q2 CNC motor mount Aluminum Bulkheads The ultra-lightweight bulkheads have been carried over from the Q2 and are a work of engineering art, where luxury meets simplicity and practicality. The bulkheads are CNC-machined from Q2 alloy aluminum and are strategically machined to provide the lightest possible skeletal support framework for the car.
