Xpress brand to make a return
Back in the day when electric touring cars had slotted chassis for NiCD cells and drivetrains with ball differentials and high layshafts, the Xpress Pro touring car was one of the kits to beat. The iconic tourer featured a complex 4-link front suspension with step-less adjustable caster and camber settings, comparable to today’s Awesomatix car, as well as as central servo mount with direct links to the steering knuckles and it also featured a huge red anodised aluminium rear bulkhead and motor mount. The brand had a successful yet rather short life, although their 1/10th mini touring car had a certain following afterwards, but it will make a comeback in 2016 with four new on-road kits. No detailed information are available yet but the line will divide into the Xpresso and Road Runner series of cars and it is understood that both “full-size” as well as mini 1/10th touring cars will be part of the line-up. More information to follow.
