XRAY is pleased announce the new and improved X10’16. The X10 is a 1/10 GT pancar based on the XRAY’s European Championship-winning X12 pancar. Sharing many high-performance parts with its smaller cousin, the X10 has incorporated all the finest details to achieve a state of perfection. XRAY focused its efforts on refining all of the already well thought out parts and assemblies to make the new X10 easy to drive, work on, and adjust.
X10’16 NEW Features:
- All-new chassis
- All-new rear pod plate
- All-new rear pod upper plate
- All-new rear link brace
- All-new narrower design
- All-new weight balance
- All-new straight side springs
- All-new orange aluminum parts
NEW Chassis: The new chassis is ultra-narrow, designed for short battery packs. The narrower chassis improves steering response and overall traction on all track surfaces. Torsional stability has been increased, resulting in increased grip while eliminating tire scrubbing in high-speed corners. The car handles bumps much better, as well. The CNC-machined chassis is custom-manufactured from stiffer 2.5mm high-grade graphite material with a specially-designed compound for carpet racing. The chassis includes new holes to allow the long shock mounting alternative for increased on-power traction and drivability over bumps.
NEW Rear Pod: The new rear pod was redesigned along with the ultra-narrow chassis and along with the new position of side springs. The narrower chassis & rear pod allow the composite rear pod links to be placed centrally, resulting in better steering response and side-to-side weight transition. The compact, ultra-lightweight rear pod is constructed from high-strength aluminum bulkheads, a rear aluminum brace, and thin (but strong) high-grade graphite plates. The smart pod design allows for super-easy motor top access, accommodating all motors. Eccentric composite bushings are included for ultra-fine rear ride height adjustment.
NEW Upper Pod Plate: The rear pod upper plate has been designed to accommodate the new battery position on the chassis by changing the position of the side tubes mounting.
NEW Rear Link Brace: The brace was redesigned to accommodate the new side spring positions, along with improved access and new body holder positions. The graphite brace now works as a battery backstop.
NEW Weight Balance: The layout of the electronics and position of individual sections of the car were designed with optimum weight distribution and balance in mind. The steering servo is located in a lay-down position for lowest CG at the chassis center, and the layout of the chassis allows the batteries to be placed either frontwards or rearwards. Depending on battery configuration, the ESC and receiver can be placed in various positions for ideal weight transfer and balance.
NEW Side Springs: The new side springs are straight instead of conical, which helps improve the side traction and handling of the car. The straight side springs have more consistent and smoother compression which results in smoother out-of corner exiting, and reduces the chance of traction rolling.
