Xray X1’20 aluminium flex & hard carbon fibre chassis

Xray have announced the release of new aluminium and carbon fibre chassis parts for their X1’20 formula car kit. First up is the 2.0mm aluminium flex chassis that was developed for the use on medium to high-bite carpet or high grip asphalt tracks. It features strategically placed milled-out sections to optimise the torsional flex while scrubbing a bit of weight. The narrow design eliminates contact with the track surface in corners while rolling, and offers improved cornering speed. The design also includes a slot for a composite battery backstop which allows 5mm battery position adjustment when using the most frequently used cross-chassis alignment configuration. Also incorporated are three wheelbase settings of standard, +4mm and -4mm.

Also new and made for the use with the above chassis is a 2.0mm aluminium lower rear pod plate. It is machined from high-quality material and like the chassis, it comes with a black surface coating for wear and looks. Last but not least comes a hard 2.5mm carbon fibre chassis. Developed for very-high traction conditions, or when using tyres that offer a lot of steering which makes the car more difficult to drive, the chassis makes the car more stable and easier to drive, and eliminates oversteering. The super-narrow design allows for maximum traction while having excellent steering and cornering speed. The chassis also has ideal torsional stability to help eliminate the scrub effect in high-speed corners and like the alloy chassis, it offers 0mm, +4mm and -4mm front wheelbase settings.
