The new chassis includes a new two-position option for pod link mounting. The first outer position is standard, while the new inner position allows for angled mounting of the pod links to improve in-corner steering.
The new, ultra-narrow chassis is designed for short battery packs, giving improved steering response and better overall traction on all track surfaces. Torsional stability has been increased resulting in increased grip while eliminating tire scrubbing in high-speed corners. The car handles bumps much better, as well.
The CNC-machined chassis is custom-manufactured from stiffer 2.5mm high-grade graphite material with a specially-designed compound for carpet racing.
Everything is new in the rear suspension, from the new rear pod plate, through the all-new alu bulkheads, and the new rear brace up to the rear link brace; everything was updated and redesigned for improved performance and durability.
The rear suspension features a conventional rear pod that is adjustable via pivot-ball links, providing extremely easy assembly and tuning while being very effective and giving the highest competitive performance.
The rear pod was redesigned to fit the new aluminum bulkheads and graphite brace.
The compact, ultra-lightweight rear pod is constructed from high-strength aluminum bulkheads, a rear graphite brace, and thin (but strong) high-grade graphite plates.
The smart pod design allows for super-easy motor access, accommodating all motors.
The all-new rear pod plate features a narrower design in rear, allowing the bulkheads to be moved closer together. The motor position has been offset more to the right for improved weight balance, especially when using heavier brushless motors.
The position of the rear left bulkhead was moved more than ~5mm to the right to improve weight balance, as well as to shorten the pod to make it lighter.
The rear suspension is mounted on a premium-quality graphite pod plate that works independently of the chassis. The updated design of the new pod plate works with the new aluminum rear bulkheads, as well as widening the rear pod links for more stability.
The open-top design of the rear pod left-side bulkhead provides super-easy motor access. The rear pod accommodates all motors.
The all-new alu bulkheads allow for very quick & easy ride height adjustment. No more hassle to disassemble the car to change the rear ride height!
The included ride-height shims are inserted between the bulkhead and eccentric upper bulkhead clamp to alter the ride height. The eccentric clamps are designed to offer two different alternatives, thus extending the range of ride height adjustment. Smart & easy.
The new ride-height adjustment method allows ultra-fine adjustment by 0.25mm increments, compared to the previous 0.5mm increments using eccentric bushings.
The all-new rear graphite brace replaces the previous aluminum brace, significantly reducing tweak of the rear pod. To keep the lowest possible CG, the brace is positioned in the lowest possible position.
Machined from premium graphite, the brace is flexible yet rigid enough to withstand serious crashes.
The all-new rear link brace features a narrower design to accommodate the new shorter side tubes. The new, lighter brace moves the weight more towards the chassis centerline.
The graphite rear link brace holds the side tubes as well as the side springs and body posts, and works as a backstop for the battery pack.
The all-new narrower side tubes give reduced weight and offer improved car handling.
Lateral damping side tubes provide ultra-smooth side damping, making the car easier to drive and easier to work on. The outer aluminum tube and inner Delrin® tube give ultra-smooth operation.
All-new tweak-free lower pivot brace was redesigned for easier mounting of the pod plate on the chassis. Thanks to the nut groove on the brace, nuts that connect chassis with the brace will find the position by themselves, removing the need to reset the position for free movement when mounting the pod plate.
The composite upper & lower pivot braces were redesigned to allow the pivot ball to be lowered by 0.5mm so as to lower the roll center of the car, resulting in more rear traction and improved rear stability.
The pivot ball is smaller and lighter, which is very important for a pan car. The pivot ball has an internal thread so a separate locking nut atop the pivot ball is not needed any more. This saves weight but also allows for greater side movement of the rear pod.
Strong & simple, yet refined front suspension made from strong, lightweight, self-developed composite material. Reactive caster settings available using 2.5°, 5.0° or 7.5° eccentric bushings. Tiny yet strong HUDY Spring Steel™ upper pivot balls ensure smooth, bind-free operation, while composite lower pivot balls allow the front suspension to operate smoothly.
Quick & easy adjustment of front caster, track-width, roll center, and ride height via included shims and clips.
Super-smooth, hardened steel kingpins are the foundation of the front suspension.
Ultra-precise wheel axles CNC-machined from premium HUDY Spring Steel™ are additionally hardened and hand ground for precision fitment.
Front upper 3mm adjustable HUDY Spring Steel™ camber turnbuckles are lightweight yet very durable to withstand hard impacts, with precision threading to ensure fine camber adjustment. Steering linkages are made from adjustable 4mm turnbuckles manufactured from lightweight aluminum.
Excess play in the steering block and front upper ball joints was removed to improve steering response.
New steering blocks are made from a harder material to make the car easier to drive and give smoother steering.
Both front upper arms and the front upper arm mounts are moulded from harder composite material to make the car easier to drive and give smoother steering.
The upper arm shims allow for moving the front upper arm mount together with the upper arm more out from the lower arm, thus generating less camber gain and making the car easier to drive. With more shims, less camber gain is generated, reducing initial steering and making the car less twitchy.
The upper arm shims allow for moving the front upper arm mount together with the upper arm more out from the lower arm, thus generating less camber gain and making the car easier to drive. With more shims, less camber gain is generated, reducing initial steering and giving less “twitchiness.”
Unique & innovative center shock position adjustment allows use of various positions on the graphite antenna holder to adjust the shock position and length. By using a longer or shorter shock, the damping and steering characteristics can be changed.
• Shock built WITH adaptor (extension)
• Improved drivability over bumps, improved on-power traction
• Shock built WITHOUT adaptor
• Improved steering response, quicker direction changes
The fully-adjustable XRAY shock absorber features a hard-anodized aluminum shock body for superior durability. The fine-threaded shock body allows for quick & easy shock spring preload adjustment.
Tiny, thin shock membrane gives smooth dampening characteristics, and a super-soft silicone shock O-ring gives super-smooth operation while preventing oil leakage.
The ultra-finely finished shock shaft with precision-molded composite shock piston ensures optimum shock oil flow and smooth action.
A simple yet smart shock construction allows for quick & easy shock-length adjustment for rear pod downstop adjustment.
The number of holes in shock piston were changed from 2 to 1 for improved on-power steering.
New, longer servo mounts fit standard servos, the most frequently-used servo in this class. The mid-size servo mounts are available as an option.
Pre-drilled chassis holes for the servo mounts on both left & right sides allow the placement of the servo on either side to maintain proper balance. Aluminum servo stands allow flat mounting of the servo onto the chassis for the lowest possible CG.
The layout of the electronics and position of individual sections of the car were designed with optimum weight distribution and balance in mind.
The steering servo is located in a lay-down position for lowest CG at the chassis center, and the layout of the chassis allows the batteries to be placed either frontwards or rearwards. Depending on battery configuration, the ESC and receiver can be placed in various positions for ideal weight transfer and balance.
Battery placement position on the chassis has a significant influence on weight balance adjustment. The chassis design allows the battery to be installed in either a forward or backward position, secured by composite battery holders.
The lower suspension arms feature smart eccentric aluminum inserts which allow quick & easy changing and setting of track-width depending on track conditions. Optional aluminum 0.5mm and 1.0mm eccentrics are used to set wider or narrower track-width.
The front suspension uses ride height adjustment shims which enable very quick, precise and hassle-free ride height adjustment for various track conditions. The set of 0.2, 0.4, and 0.6mm ride height adjustment shims are included for fine tuning.
Reactive caster is easily adjustable by using easy-to-change eccentric bushings of 2.5°, 5.0° or 7.5° (included). Reactive caster is used to adjust the amount of caster change when the front end of the car is compressing (diving) or decompressing (rising).
The front chassis upper brace features 3 suspension mount positions which allow for fast and comfortable wheelbase adjustment.
Optional 3mm shims are available for the steering block to make the car easier to drive under high-traction conditions.
The quick adjustable Ackermann positions can be adjusted by adding/removing shims between the servo and servo holders. The composite shims included in the kit come in three different sizes: 3x6x1, 3x6x2 and 3x6x3. Ackermann influences the steering of the car, and therefore it is important to make it an adjustable feature.
4-spring servo saver gives more precise steering, making the car easy to drive while handling more consistently.
The tiny yet robust servo saver protects the servo from impact damage. Easy Ackermann adjustment is made via shims mounted below steering block pivot balls.
The side springs are straight instead of conical, which helps improve the side traction and handling of the car. The straight side springs have more consistent and smoother compression which results in smoother out-of corner exiting, and reduces the chance of traction rolling.
The ultra-strong lightweight steel axle is used to provide maximum reliability even in the serious crashes. The rear differential features high-grade precision carbide balls for spur gear, hardened and precision-ground D-steel shims, and premium carbide axial thrust bearing.
Precision-molded spur gears are made from XRAY's exclusive composite material, ensuring true running, super-quiet operation, and robustness for handling powerful motors. A range of optional spur gears for fine tuning is available.
Aluminum rear hubs are machined from lightweight aircraft aluminum, specially lightened and black-coated for stylish looks. The rear left aluminum wheel hub features a center-balanced clamping mounting system, ensuring secure mounting while eliminating vibration and run-out.
A tiny lightweight antenna mount secures the optional lightweight yet strong molded fiberglass rollover antenna #376310.
