PSM DTC & HTC touring car aluminium chassis

Following a first teaser image, PSM from Germany have finally unveiled their new DTC and HTC touring car aluminium main chassis plates. These unique chassis have been specially developed to suit medium-low and medium-high grip conditions. The DTC Delta Traction Characteristics chassis feature delta shaped cut-outs to provide soft torsion characteristics along with consistent performance. The softer flex allows the car to generate more mechanical grip, which is helpful in low grip conditions and/or very tight tracks.

HTC High Traction Characteristics chassis feature special aligned pockets which create a stiffening rib pattern to provide less torsion characteristics along with consistent performance. Due to less flex, the car will be more stable and able to generate more corner speed, which is very helpful in many high grip conditions and/or fast sweeping corners. In addition, the HTC chassis versions feature a unique LCG weight distribution system, which allows to add optional weight inlays of 2g each, to predefined locations without disturbing the torsional characteristics of the chassis or adding up to its original thickness. The chassis are machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium and they are available for the Yokomo BD9’19, Xray T4’19 and Tamiya TA07.
