Rebellion-RC A800FX Crossflex aluminium chassis

RC-Carbonstore have introduced their all-new Rebellion-RC Crossflex chassis for the Awesomatix A800FX FWD touring car. The main plate is machined from high-quality aluminium and features Rebellion-RC’s signature Crossflex technology that allows to add brass inserts for the lowest possible centre of gravity while enabling the driver to fine-tune chassis flex by using different amounts of screws to tighten down the inserts. The idea was to become able to adjust the weight-balance as well as the flex individually with every insert by using different fixing positions without the need of changing the whole chassis; with a standard chassis being always hard front/rear or soft front/rear, but not hard front/soft rear. When the brass inserts are fixed at a 90 degree angle to the driving direction they almost have no influence to the flex, but if attached using the remaining – cross-positioned – mounting points, the inserts decrease the flex. To make the system work the fixing points for the “hard” setting are 0.3mm lowered to make for a free movement at “flex” setting, and when using the “hard” setting drivers need to insert the included 0.3mm shims to be able to access the desired “hard” flex settings. The chassis alone weighs in at 83g with the fully brass’ed up variant weighing in at 147g.
