Xpress have released new carbon fibre option parts for their XM1S M-class 4WD touring car. Available are a 2.25mm bottom chassis plate, a 2.0mm upper deck, as well as 3.0mm front and rear shock towers. All are machined from high-quality graphite material and they are made as a direct replacement for the standard FRP parts. Using the carbon items will greatly improve rigidity and precision as they reduce overall flex in the chassis and suspension area, resulting in more consistent handling especially in high-bite track conditions.
Made for Xpress’ new Execute XM1 M-sized 1/10th on-road kit is an optional carbon fibre front shock tower with body post holder that allows to use body shells with short front overhang. Machined from 3.0mm carbon fibre the shock stay offers mounting positions for the included body posts that are necessary for bodies such as a Mini Cooper as the standard, bumper-mounted posts extent too far from the chassis. The set includes the front shock tower and a pair of body posts.
Coming from Yeah Racing and made for the Xpress XM1S M-class on-road car is a titanium turnbuckle set. The links are made from quality 64 grade titanium and designed to replace the standard steel turnbuckle to offer a lower weight and add visual impact. The set includes seven turnbuckles for the camber, steering and servo links.
Designed for the Execute XQ1 and XM1 cars is Xpress’ new anti-tweak battery mount. The multi-piece carbon fibre and alloy construction does away with the need to use reinforced tape in favour of either two carbon fibre hold downs or hook and loop straps. The results are faster battery swaps, improved reliability and also nearly zero tweak issues compared to using tape. The system is usable for all Execute series cars.
Coming from Yeah Racing are new titanium turnbuckle sets for the Xray T4 and Xpress Execute XQ1 series of touring cars. Both are made of high-quality 64 grade titanium and they are direct replacements for the standard items. While offering a low weight they also promise exceptional stability and corrosion resistance besides adding visual impact to the chassis.
Xpress have introduced their new lightweight aluminium anti-roll bar set for the Execute XQ1S club-level touring car kit. The set includes a total of six swaybar wires for the front and the rear of the car as well as red anodised aluminium collars and ball studs that make for smoother function and an overall lower weight.
Xpress have introduced their new 30mm Windmill aluminium cooling fan for speed controllers. The machined alloy case will offer additional cooling surface for improved heat dissipation while looking the part due to extensive machining and silver edge details. The black colour wiring gives the fan a stealthy factory appearance and it is usable with virtually all speed controllers that use 30mm fan mounting patterns.
Coming soon from Xpress is their Execute XM1S 4WD M-class touring car kit. The belt-driven car uses design elements of the XQ1S 1/10th scale tourer and it was developed for competitive racing, utilising a shorty LiPo battery as well as full-blown brushless components. The 210mm wheelbase car will use the Execute XQ1 series differentials, making for a sturdy and efficient drivetrain and full details will become available in time for the release that is schedule for end of September.
