XRAY have introduced the new NT1 2018 1/10 200mm nitro on-road kit.
2018 All-new Features.
All-new chassis features a unique, innovative front flex adjustment using an insertable aluminum brace. Using the aluminum brace increases steering response and cornering speed; without the aluminum brace, the car is easier to drive.
All-new rear layshaft bulkheads allow use of bracket bushings that connect the layshaft bulkheads with rear bulkheads to reinforce the entire rear suspension, making the car better in high-traction conditions. Without the bracket bushings, the car has more traction which is recommended for low-traction conditions
All-new graphite brace for rear bulkheads gives easier access to engine screws.
All-new graphite brace connecting the rear layshaft bulkheads and radio plate stand for easier engine removal.
New 2018 – Chassis.
The all-new lightweight chassis is CNC-machined from premium Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum, strategically machined in low-stress areas to make it as light as possible without adversely affecting strength or rigidity. With the updated design of the chassis, the front window opening is larger and features milled slots for a removable brace.
New 2018 – Front Chassis Flex Adjustment.
All-new chassis with unique, innovative front flex adjustment via a removable aluminum brace. Using the aluminum brace increases steering response & cornering speed; without the aluminum brace, the car is easier to drive and has more forward traction.
New 2018 – Rear Brace.
All-new graphite brace of the rear bulkheads was redesigned for more comfortable access to the engine screws. The rear suspension design features Multi-Flex™ quick adjustment to easily adapt the handling of the car to particular track conditions and tires used. There are 2 different flex characteristics to choose from:
- SOFT – Graphite brace is not used. This allows flex in the rear suspension and generates more rear traction. Recommended for low traction tracks, or races with spec hard or large tires.
- STIFF – Graphite brace is connected to the 2-speed bulkheads. This setting reduces flex in the rear suspension and improves out-of-corner steering and rotation, but also slightly decreases rear traction. Recommended for medium-high-traction tracks, or when tires with additive are used.
New 2018 – Rear Suspension Multi-flex Technology.
The all-new rear suspension design features Multi-Flex quick adjustment to easily adapt the handling of the car to particular track conditions and tires used. There are three different flex characteristics to choose from.
New 2018 – 2-Speed Bulkheads.
All-new redesigned rear layshaft bulkheads allow use of bracket bushings to connect the layshaft bulkheads to the rear bulkheads to reinforce the entire rear suspension. There are two flex settings of 2-speed bulkheads:
- SOFT – Bracket bushings not installed. The car has more traction. Recommended for low-traction conditions.
- STIFF – Bracket bushings are installed. The car is more free. Recommended for high-traction conditions.
The new bulkheads are an integral part of the chassis Multi-Flex™ system that offers a variety of choices for different flex adjustment.
New 2018 – Rear Graphite Stiffener.
All-new redesigned graphite brace connects the rear layshaft bulkheads and radio plate stand, allowing easier engine removal. The rear graphite stiffener – made from 2mm graphite material – was designed to enhance the flex characteristics around the engine area. The brace is mounted on the right side between the 2-speed bulkhead and the adjacent aluminum radio plate mount. The graphite stiffener provides optimized flex characteristics and can be easily removed when extra steering needed. An optional rear stiffener link is available to offer an in-between stiffness setting.
