Xpress Dragnalo DR1S upgrade parts

Xpress have released a number of upgrade parts for the Dragnalo DR1S, including some graphite upgrades and an aluminium motor mount which connects the rear end to the middle of the chassis. The motor mount which has the rear bulkhead integrated, removes the flex that might occur when delivering large amounts of power during your drag runs. This allows for better power delivery on startup. The new graphite chassis reduces the flex of the chassis and gives more consistent performance during hot weather when compared to the stock fibre glass chassis. A new motor mount plate is now also available in graphite, reinforcing the motor area to reduce flex when applying power to the car and is available for both 1/8 motors and 540 motors. A graphite shock tower, which also fits on our Execute XQ2S, enables you to run their short shocks. And finally, the new graphite top deck further controls the flex of your chassis, changing to this will give you a more consistent chassis similar to the effect of the graphite chassis as it deals with high temperatures better.

Xpress Dragnalo DR1S 1/10 4wd EP high power TC

Xpress have introduced their Dragnalo DR1S 1/10 4wd EP high power touring car. Traditional touring cars are designed for use with a 2S LiPo in line with a lot of racing standards set by the racing organisations. But with the advancement in both LiPo and brushless power systems, the DR1S was designed to handle much larger amounts of power. The DR1S was designed with the goal to handle all of that power. From Circuit racing to drag racing and 2S LiPo to 6s LiPo, the drivetrain was designed to deal with all of these high powered systems. For Drag racing application, this car was designed to withstand the power which the current 1/8th power plants are able to generate. The height adjustable wheelie bar was designed to minimise launch times and stabilise the car after launch.
