Are you running your car in endurance events ?
If you are running your car in endurance events, be sure to check out The Enduro System.
If you are running your car in an endurance event with multiple drivers and driver changes, different drivers want to use their favourite steering wheel for their stints behind the wheel in enduros, and different drivers have different driving positions, due to factors that cannot be changed such as different driver heights and arm reach lengths etc.
In the past, your only option was to come up with a compromise - a compromise on which steering wheel to use, and a compromise on driving position, which increases driver fatigue.
And anyone who has ever competed in an endurance race knows that as soon as you get fatigued, your concentration drops, lap times get slower, you lose ground against your opposition, and safety is compromised.
So we sat down and thought "there simply must be a better way", and set about solving the problem ...
What we have come up with is a package of products that we nicknamed "The Enduro System".
The Enduro System is made up of a number of modular products that you can mix and match to solve once and for all the steering wheel position problems inherent in endurance racing with multiple drivers.
The Rapfix II is available in five color options as shown below:
- Red Body / Silver Sleeve
- Silver Body / Silver Sleeve
- Black Body / Black Sleeve
- Blue Body / Silver Sleeve
- NEW VERSION Orange Body / Silver Sleeve
- Toshiki Yoshioka ToshiKing Black Collaboration Model
Please refer to the diagram above for dimensions of the Rapfix II Quick Release.
