Zeppin Racing T3 Type M chassis

ZeppinRacingT3TypeMChassis

Zeppin Racing has developed the Type M flex chassis for Xray’s T3 2011 and 2012 touring car. 15 gram lighter and designed to provide more traction on medium traction surfaces the chassis is cut from 2.25mm carbon fibre and sports redesigned cut-outs for enhanced handling, more corner speed and acceleration. The vertically located servo provides added space for the electronics while the reduced width of 88mm reduces the chance of the chassis plate bottoming out in corners or over kerbs.
