Team Magic E4RS4 aluminium main chassis plate

Team Magic have introduced an aluminium main chassis plate for the new E4RS4 touring car. Machined from 2.0mm 7075 aluminium and coming black anodised and with silver edge details, the chassis features optimised flex characteristics for improved performance on high-bite carpet tracks. A novelty are two L-shaped areas under the receiver and speed controller area which make fixing the electrics much easier and more reliable while retaining the natural flex characteristics of the chassis.

Team Magic E4RS4 1.8mm & 2.3mm upper decks

Coming from Team Magic and made for the new E4RS4 touring car are 1.8mm and 2.3mm carbon fibre upper decks. Offering different flex characteristics, the thinner 1.8mm deck is best suited for the use in combination with the soon-to-be-released aluminium main chassis while the thicker 2.3mm variant was developed for the use with the standard carbon fibre chassis and when running on high-grip tracks.

Fenix Flexy Sexy E4RS4 & updated TC7.1 alloy chassis

Fenix have introduced their Flexy Sexy aluminium chassis for the Team Magic E4RS4 and also an updated main plate for the Team Associated TC7.1. Starting with the Team Magic chassis, it is 85mm wide and weighs in at 82g. Excessive machining in the middle section makes for optimised flex characteristics of the fully symmetrical chassis, making it ideal for all medium to high-bite conditions. As for the updated TC7.1 chassis the main plate now offers ARS mounting positions directly on the chassis. An “ARS” engraving makes for easy identification of the updated item.
