Zero Tribe introduce new T4 Mid & BD9 Mid chassis parts

Coming soon from Zero Tribe are new carbon fibre main chassis and upper decks for their Xray T4 Mid and Yokomo BD9 Mid mid motor conversions. Both the HT chassis and upper decks are of an updated design that provides increased straight line stability, making the cars easier to drive. The chassis are of a refinded shape for optimised flex and they feature machined sections around the middle bulkhead area, allowing to retain the upper M2 bulkhead screws for increased pitch stiffness while the cut-outs ensure optimised torsional flex for improved traction. As for the updated HT upper decks, these will become available in 2.2mm, 2.0mm and 1.65mm variants to fine-tune overall chassis flex.

Zero Tribe BD9 Mid 2.0mm aluminium chassis

Coming in mid-December is Zero Tribe’s 2.0mm aluminium chassis for their Yokomo BD9 Mid mid-motor chassis conversion kit. Machined from high-quality aluminium and coming black anodised for wear and looks, the chassis comes in handy when running in high-bite track conditions as it reduces overall chassis flex for a more controlled ride in grippy carpet or asphalt conditions.
