X-Factory X-6 one-piece chassis

We showed you the first photos of the new X-6 Squared last week and today X-Factory has sent us this photo outlining some more details of the new car. The main new feature is that the car sports a new one-piece chassis, eliminating the nose piece that removes a step in assembly, two threaded inserts and four bolts, to save weight. The car has been designed to accept LiPo first and cells second, using the new carbon fiber battery hold-down and the car also uses the AE servo mounting system, with two screws up from the bottom, which eliminates a large plastic part and two more screws. Two antenna positions allow the receiver to be mounted on either side of the car while new molded graphite rear wishbones can be used on either side of the car. Finally a new carbon fibre rear shock tower allows a better fit for the wing, gives .050″ more suspension up-travel yet retains same geometry as the original X-6. Company president Chazz said:

We’re still on track to ship X-6 Squared Kits to our Dealer Family all over the world  late next week or the first week of February. Customers will be able to purchase the Squared first from their local hobby shop.
