Joosens, De Witte & Bultynck win at Belgian nats Rd4

The 4th round of the 2014 FBA 1/10 Electric On-road Touring Car nationals were held at the fast outdoor track in Rucphen. The weekend started off on a damp surface in the first round of qualifiers. At the end Nick Joosens put his car on top of the time sheets in the Efra class, in front of Mitchel Van Es and Olivier Bultynck. The first final was a battle between Nick Joosens, Mitchel Van Es and Olivier Bultynck. On his home track Nick proved that he was the man to beat but also Mitchel is very familiar with the track and tried to pass Nick. Olivier was a little slower and thus happy with a 3rd place. Mitchel tried everything to find a way past, but Nick was too strong and stayed in the lead to take the win. Mitchel came in as 2nd and Thomas Stockman took the 4th place in A1.

Smokem Racing T4’14-IIX chassis

Smokem Racing T4'14-IIX chassis

Smokem Racing has taken their proprietary “pro-weave” 100 percent carbon fiber construction and married it to a contoured design to produce the T4’14-IIX chassis for the Xray T4’14 electric touring car. This specially developed 2.0mm thick chassis material is stiffer than conventional weave but softer than a quasi weave. This unique combination of increased flex and lower centre of gravity generates improved corner speed over a wider range of track conditions and temperatures. Through extensive development and testing, Smokem has managed to improve the high speed steering and transitional response with the T4’14-IIX design. Furthermore, the differential and spur gear openings have been closed off to further enhance flex characteristics and improve airflow on the bottom of the chassis.
