RC Maker T4’20 SlimFlex carbon fibre chassis

Coming from RC Maker and made for the Xray T4 2020 mid-motor touring car is the new SlimFlex carbon fibre chassis. Tested and developed for over six months by RC Maker’s team drivers, the chassis will offer improved handling especially in low-med traction conditions. A new design sees the chassis narrowed all round to provide less scrubbing in corners, leading to increased corner speed. This increases flex substantially, so to counteract this, the designers have recessed the diff and spool cutouts instead of cutting them all the way through. Not only does this bring the chassis back up to the desired amount of flex, it also improves aerodynamic performance by not preventing air from under the chassis being forced up into the car, detrimental to handling. As well as this, RC Maker have removed the holes for the short arm blocks as they compromise the strength and accuracy of the chassis, and also alter the flex characteristics. Screwing weight to the car is now even easier thanks to the added front weight holes, these can be used to screw RC Maker’s “Weight Shift” front weights to the chassis, giving drivers a place to add weight, whilst also being adjustable left/right. All of these features combined make for a chassis which is easier to drive, with more traction and faster lap times, in both Stock and Modified classes. The chassis is precision cut and countersunk in house in Australia from high quality 3K 2.2mm carbon.
