Rebellion RC X12’21 crossflex chassis

More new chassis options from Rebellion RC, this time for the Xray X12’21, with their first crossflex chassis for 1/12th scale. The outer shape is identical to the original, while in the main body of the chassis the crossflex inserts are positioned close to the centre-line to keep the rotating behaviour of the car as agile as possible. At the front the cutouts are chamfered to generate additional downforce, they claim, especially in fast corners and testing of the prototype at the end of the 2020 season has shown the benefit of the crossflex chassis and its brass insert system in the 1/12th class.

Rebellion RC T4’21 Crossflex aluminium chassis

Following on from yesterday’s release of the Rebellion RC Crossflex aluminium chassis for the Awesomatix MMX, there is now a version for the T4’21. Just like the MMX version this too is much narrower than the previous version, at only 76mm it improves roll-behaviour and prevent the chassis from touching the ground. The holes for the short swing arms were removed which made it possible to make the rear end narrower which leads to improved on throttle traction. In the front the Crossflex inserts were replaced by the new Y-Stiffener as well as a new X-Stiffener for forward Servo mount which gives you a lot more flex-setting options. Last but not least they have made new floating-plates for ESC and Electronics, that are available in brass for stock and aluminium for modified for perfectly adjusted car-balance depending on batteries used. Due to the re-positioned battery holder holes the chassis comes with a set of longer carbon battery holders.

Rebellion RC MMX topdeck option

Rebellion RC now offer two more top deck options for the Awesomatix MMX, a single and two-piece version. Both are very similar in design, wrapping around the spur gear, with the single piece best suited for high to very high traction, while the two piece top deck helps improve front end in-corner steering depending on which screws you use. All bulkhead-holes are 3,1mm to improve flex and reduce tweak, and both are available in 1.5mm or 2mm thick carbon.

Rebellion RC MMX Yin Yang top deck

For the Awesomatix MMX from Rebellion RC is this two piece wrap around top deck that the Austrian company is calling ‘Yin Yang’. Not just an interesting visual it results in a car with increased overall traction and one which stays super stable all around the track. Made from high quality carbon it is available in both 1.5mm or 2mm thickness.

Rebellion RC X20 Crossflex aluminium chassis

The new Rebellion-RC Crossflex aluminium chassis for the Serpent X20 touring car is here. The chassis was developed for use in medium to high-bite traction conditions with its highly machined design allowing for optimised flex characteristics that can be greatly influenced with the use of up to ten optional brass inserts that not only add weight in the lowest area of the chassis, but they can also be used to change the overall torsional flex characteristics. The sidelines of the chassis have a front to rear 30° chamfered edge for better sliding behaviour when the chassis touches the ground and the cutouts for the Diff/Spool also have chamfered edges to get more space between the rotary parts and the chassis. The chassis is machined from high-quality 7075 T6 aluminium, it comes black anodised for wear and looks, features a laser-engraved Rebellion-RC logo and it weighs in at 84g alone and up to 130g using the optional brass inserts.

The sets are available in +2.5mm, +0mm (SF4 Std), -2.5mm, -5mm and -7.5 (SF3 Std) offsets and come with the lower arm and top plate.
