RC Maker T4’20 floating electronics weight plate

RC Maker have introduced their new floating electronics weight plate for the Xray T4 2020 touring car. The plate puts weight where it is needed most, to get the car up to he minimum weight and balanced. The set includes a carbon shim which floats it 0.5mm off the chassis from near to the centre of the car, meaning the plate itself has minimal to no impact on the flex of the chassis. On top of the plate, there is a 10g of brass weight to secure it in place. The plate attaches to the often unused antenna mount hole. If drivers still want to use this antenna mount, they can use an extra long screw through the lower weight, and thread the antenna mount on-top. The plate itself is 1mm thick and weighs in at 12g. The set coming in at 22g is a brilliant way to meet the limit, balance the car and have no impact on the flex characteristics of the chassis at the same time. Another added bonus, is owners can change chassis or clean the car, and simply remove the receiver, transponder and fan simply by undoing one screw. If drivers are after more weight for the car, RC Maker have a 1.5mm option plate available weighing in at 20g which can either replace the 1mm plate to bring the overall weight up to 30g, or added to the 1mm plate to make a total of 2.5mm, bringing it all the way up to 42g. The set comes packaged in a high quality black magnetic lid box with RC Maker logo on a clear front window, ensuring the plate is kept in perfect condition in transit.
