Xray have introduced two new aluminium chassis plates for the X1’17 formula cars. First up is the aluminium flex chassis for medium to high-bite tracks. The plate is machined from 2mm aluminium and it features additional cut outs under the battery compartment for increased torsional flex, helping with traction and steering in medium-bite conditions. The chassis comes black anodised and decorated with laser-etched markings.
Also new and designed for high to very high traction tracks is the full face alloy chassis. Like the flex variant it comes machined from 2mm 7075-T6 aluminium with a black anodised surface for wear and looks. Both chassis are developed for the use with the optional aluminium lower pod plate and both feature a new 2-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. Also new is a more frontward position for mounting the central mounting plate when running the new short shock absorber.
