Features

Revised Suspension Geometry

Revised Suspension Geometry

New suspension geometry makes it easier for drivers of all experience levels to turn faster lap times with fewer mistakes, particularly when harnessing the power of a high-output brushless motor system.

Variable Motor and Center Differential Angles

Variable Motor and Center Differential Angles

Two different center plates for the bottom of the chassis are included. The stock center plate puts the motor and differential directly in line with the chassis. The optional center plate rotates the motor and differential 4.4 degrees, creating equal angles between the front-center and rear-center dog bones. This provides more balanced power to the front and rear of the car under acceleration.

Two Battery and ESC Locations

Two Battery and ESC Locations

The chassis offers two locations for the battery and ESC. With the battery in the forward location and the ESC in the rear of the car, the vehicle has more forward weight bias which improves stability on high-speed tracks. Moving the ESC forward and the battery to the rear mounting location provides a rear weight bias that increases corner speed and makes handling more agile.

Large Bearing Spindles and Hubs

Large Bearing Spindles and Hubs

Front spindles and rear hubs have been revised to accept a larger 8 x 16 x 5 outer bearing for increased durability.

Adjustable Caster Blocks

Adjustable Caster Blocks

The adjustable, 15-degree caster blocks make it possible to tune dog bone plunge by changing the height of the spindle.

New Bleeder Shock Caps and Seals

New Bleeder Shock Caps and Seals

The new bleeder shock caps and internal seals allow for easier rebuilds while using an emulsion shock setup. New bushings that press into the shock cap further improve durability.

Driveshaft and Dog Bone Boots

Driveshaft and Dog Bone Boots

Molded rubber boots on the CVA s increase U- joint life by holding lubrication in and keeping dirt out.

Redesigned Shock Towers

Redesigned Shock Towers

The machined aluminum shock towers have new camber link and shock location holes that give racers more tuning options for changing track conditions.

Cab-Forward Body

Cab-Forward Body

The cab-forward body moves aerodynamic pressure further forward on the car, which improves steering.
