Team Saxo introduce their new Formula 1 body shell for most of today’s formula chassis. It features a narrow cab and sharp front end design to maximise airflow and minimising drag in order to help with top speed on flowing high speed tracks. The side pods are specially designed to allow for good aerodynamics and enough room for the electronics at the same time. The unnamed body will become available from beginning of November.
Available soon from Team Saxo is the F1-200 ‘wide’ pan car chassis kit. Building on a carbon fibre chassis with link-type rear suspension the kit includes a 200mm wide front suspension for foam tyre racing with lower carbon and upper composite A-arms, sliding aluminium servo mount, upper carbon fibre battery plate, large volume central shock, single tube roll damper and aluminium motor mount. The chassis plate sports milled-out sections to route the servo and ESC receiver wires in and the car is usable with standard and shorty-size LiPo battery packs with the latter allowing the speed controller to be mounted in-line with the battery pack.
