Xpress Execute FT1 1/10 FWD touring car kit

Following a couple of teasers on social media Xpress have finally fully unveiled their all-new Execute FT1 1/10th scale competition FWD touring car kit. The car utilises a carbon fibre double deck chassis design, front and rear carbon fibre shock towers and a belt-driven drivetrain as it has become a standard recently. A XQ1-type gear differential ensures exceptional forward traction while double joint driveshafts make for smooth cornering even at high steering throw angles. Adjustable upper deck stiffeners allow to fine-tune the chassis’ torsional flex and various battery positions help to adapt the weight balance to a variety of track conditions and driving styles. Other features include a front bumper with integrated 30mm motor fan mount, front and rear swaybars as well as as quick change brass balance system integrated into the bulkheads.

Xpress XQ1 mid pulley conversion kit

Coming soon from Xpress and made for their XQ1 range of 4WD touring cars is the Mid Pulley chassis conversion kit. With the centred layshaft pulley and spur gear the motor will be shifted towards the centre of the car, a design that became en vogue recently as it promises increased mid corner rotation, improved overall chassis balance and more equal front and rear end drive compared to the standard “rear motor” setup. The set includes new upper and lower chassis parts, a new motor mount and several other parts to convert the standard XQ1 as well as the lower spec XQ1S. The conversion kit will hit stores world-wide very soon.
