Xpress Execute XQ11 Mid Mount Touring Car

Hong Kong chassis manufacturer Xpress has released details of its latest 1:10 competition Touring Car, the Execute XQ11.  Building on the success of the previous XQ10 platform,  it combines a number of new design features.  The motor mount has been redesigned to accept up to 4 locations of bearings to tension your belt, with one of those being height adjustable.  The spur mounting is now screw-less, secured by a single large plate for a more evenly mounted spur.  Redesigned body stops help lift the body when cornering to prevent scraping on the track and preventing inconsistent performance.   It gets easy to adjust caster angle by adding or removing shims to the front of the mount, without having to use special tools to measure caster.  Through axle design in the uprights gives better support and increasing consistency and removing unwanted slop.  Xpress has brought back the quick change steering ackermann setting through adjusting with inserts.  Reinforced upper arms increase suspension stiffness and webbing can be cut for suspension flex tuning.  Top deck flex can be adjusted through the plethora of holes in the top deck by adding/removing inserts and/or screws in the provided holes.
