Fenix 12th gear diff, X1 Ti front axles & 17.5T motor

Coming from Fenix Racing are several new parts such as a gear differential for 1/12th scale pan cars, a set of titanium front axles for the Xray X1 and a 17.5T brushless stock motor. Starting with the gear differential, the unit is based on Fenix’s poplar 1/10th gear diff and it features a Grade 5 titanium axle, ABEC 5 class 1/4×3/8×1/8 ball bearings and it utilises a 84T 64 pitch main gear. The prototype already showed some great performance with a 3rd place in the highly competitive 10.5T class at the recent Masters of Foam race in the hands of Jaques Libar.

Next up is a set of titanium front axles for the Xray X1 formula car. Made from Grade 5 titanium and weighing in at 1.9g each the axles will greatly reduce the unsprung masses, making for quicker steering reactions, overall improved suspension efficiency and better car handling. Last but not least is the 17.5T variant of Fenix Racing’s DFV2 brushless motor. Designed to comply with the EFRA rules the motor is currently awaiting homologation.
