Following the launch of its Mach1 190mm Touring Car body back in June, Italian company Xtreme Aerodynamics has issued an ‘important statement’ regarding new updates to the bodyshell. The statement reads, ‘Following the release of Mach1, several test have been carried out and some room for improvement has been found, thus leading to a new version of the body that has just been released. Changes are minimal and related only to rear part: – Removed side support of the wing: allows wing to bend sideway, miming a softer wing behaviour. – Lowered wing support (2mm): optimize flow under the wing and reduce body frontal area. These changes push in the direction of drag reduction and increased corner speed, especially for Stock class.’
Xtreme Aerodynamics have shown a first photo of their all new 190mm touring car body, which they are calling the Mach1. The new body sports a much more aggressive front end compared to others on the market with a large front lip and newly shaped wheel arches that allow the airflow to be channeled to the rear of the car which itself has gotten lots of attention with fine details. Bruno Coelho did a video on the new body which best explains the new details and how that translates to on track performance. You can check it out below.
Following a few iterations on simulation environments and track days for further assessment the new Xtreme Aerodynamics rear wing for 1/8th scale onroad will be soon available on the market. The new wing sees an improved frontal section to provide more downforce with less height, improving driveability and efficiency. Also the edge design has been slightly changed to improve flow on the outside section. Furthermore, different material tests have been carried out to find the best compromise of thickness/stiffness. The new wing can easily replace previous versions as the mounting holes have the same distance apart.
Xtreme Aerodynamics have introduced their new RSX for the 1/10 FWD category. One of the most difficult and challenging projects they ever made featuring an obsessive attention to realism and details, without neglecting the critical aspects of the performance of this category. The proportions are 100% realistic, with a performance like never before.
Xtreme Aerodynamics have introduced a new 1/10 FWD class body shell, named the She-Rock. Because of the limited power and the understeer nature of this category, deep CFD analysis have been carried out to maximise corner speed and aero efficiency. Every section has been studied to optimise the global flow, bonnet shape, front spoiler, side skirt and roof details are examples. Extensive testing showed a smooth handling, fast transition and optimal aero balance on mid corner resulting in overall performance improvement and consistency.
Designed using the most advanced CFD software, the new Xtreme Aerodynamics carbon fibre side plates claim to improve car performance on high speed corner. The 0.50mm top quality carbon fibre plate has a profile that allows the optimal flow on the upper side of the wing while cornering thus improving vertical load and making the car more predictable and precise. The external shape helps minimise the side drag effect for better handling in direction change, still maintaining the suction/pressure side well isolated in order to maximise wing performance. Suitable for 1/10 nitro touring cars.
Xtreme Aerodynamics have introduced the follow up to their ubiquitous Twister touring car shell, the Twister Speciale. Developed using the most advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics software to analyse flows and vortex generations, several iterations and a massive track test session lead to an optimal balance, extremely high downforce level and improved aerodynamic efficiency. This resulting body shell gives more corner speed, more rotation along with more top speed.
Xtreme Aerodynamics have introduced their new tool set that comes in a handy zipped bag for convenient storage and transport. The set includes 1.5mm, 2.0mm, 2.5mm, 3.0mm and 5.0mm hex head as well as 2.0mm and 2.5mm ball hex head wrenches, making the set ideal for virtually all scales and classes with the clutch adjustment tool and a slotted screwdriver especially targeting nitro drivers. The zipped bag comes in Xtreme Aerodynamics’ signature yellow and black colour and with a pre-cut inner foam for secure carrying of the precious tools.
