Xpress Execute XQ1S sport touring car kit
Xpress have released more information on their forthcoming Execute XQ1 sport touring car kit. The vehicle, designed for club-level racers, is based off of the competition XQ1 chassis but features some downgrades such as more cost-efficient black fibreglass parts such as chassis, top deck, shock towers and upper servo mount plate as well as moulded front and rear bulkheads – the latter still of the keyed 1-piece design as are the XQ1 kit’s alloy counterparts. The design will reduce the changes of the chassis assembly becoming tweaked after impacts. Also made from moulded composite are items such as the front and rear lower A-arms mount, however the kit sports competition-inspired items such as left/right thread turnbuckles, a sturdy aluminium motor mount and threaded oil-filled shock absorbers with upper and lower alloy caps and spring preload nuts. The kit is fully compatible with all of the carbon fibre and aluminium goodies of the XQ1, allowing racers to upgrade the car if needed and the kit is set for a release in April.
