Xray X12 1/12th pan car

Xray X12 1/12th pan car

Xray have released the next evolution of the XII, the all-new Xray 1/12 pan car platform, the X12. Direct feedback from factory team drivers, as well as customers from around the world, allowed the Xray factory to turn a concept into reality… this is what we do best at Xray. New battery placement means better car balance and weight transfer and stiffer chassis material and more robust suspension material creates a car that is significantly easier to drive. By rethinking and then creating a completely new geometry where they elongate the wheelbase and widen the front track-width, they have created a car that works exceptionally well for beginners, highly-skilled drivers and everyone in between. And to make a car even easier to work on, they replaced the side shock with newly-designed side tube lateral dampers. Lowered rear bulkheads and an improved rear axle system allow the use of super-small tires while providing a super-low center of gravity.

All-new X12 specs:
Chassis:
– New battery position placement (horizontal) for better car balance and weight transfer
– New harder chassis material to make the car easier and more stable for high bite tracks
– Longer chassis for greater wheelbase for better stability
– Holes for suspension mounting are wider which create wider width to make car easier to drive
– Platform designed and optimized for LiPO batteries and brushless motors

Rear bulkheads:
– Lowered rear bulkheads to allow the rear axle to move lower which allows to use smaller tire diameter and allows to move lower the weight

Rear axle:
– New system of steel part mounting into the graphite tube makes the rear axle more durable

Front suspension:
– Lower, upper arms and steering blocks made from harder material to make the car easier to drive and more forgiving mainly on high bite tracks
– Plastic balls for king pin are used for smoother steering

Side tubes
– Side tubes replace side shock for smoother and more consistent operation

Side springs:
– Placed directly to chassis for smoother and better movements

Center Shock:
– The shock shaft is extended which makes the center shock longer for better dampening
