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.
