Designers: SEMA Now Offering 2011 Scion tC CAD Data
|SEMA held a 2011 Scion tC measuring session in June, where members got to know the ins, outs and specs of the redesigned sport compact.
The SEMA Tech Transfer program has expanded to include CAD data for the 2011 Scion tC. The files currently available include exterior body panels, engine (2.5L), transmission, suspension and brakes and air cleaner/air intake. To get started, visit www.sema.org/techtransfer.
The intent of SEMA's Tech Transfer program is to minimize or eliminate the necessity for reverse engineering to produce products. The files made available through the program are provided by participating OEMs.
In addition to the large number of files currently available, SEMA manufacturing members can also request the particular information that they need and Tech Transfer staff with work with the OEMs to provide the data.
The 2011 tC will receive its first major changes since its launch in 2004. According to Scion, the 2011 edition will be fitted with a new 2.5 L engine pushing about 180 hp and 173 lb.-ft. of torque. The current five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmissions are being replaced with a six-speed manual and a six-speed sequential shift automatic.
Inside changes include new sport bucket seats, a redesigned instrument cluster, standard 60/40 split folding rear seat and an eight-speaker audio system with steering-wheel controls.
