RS5 Modelsport has released the first CAD images of their new XT 2020 large scale gas touring car kit. One of the new chassis features is the adjustable wheelbase. With spacers You can adjust the wheelbase, or shift the weight distribution of the car. This will help You to fine tune the handling of the car.
For short tracks with a lot of slow corners the short wheelbase make the car more agile, and the long wheelbase help to make the car easy to drive at big tracks with fast corners.
The chassis feature a new front suspension geometry make the car faster and make easier to drive. The new battery tray allow You to use Shorty hardcase Lipo Battery instead of the not so popular Lipo Super Shorty Battery’s that was used on the previous cars. You can place the battery at 3 position to fine tune the weight balance of the car.
The upgraded servo saver has now an plastic screw through on it, to eliminate the play completely. But if You have a hard crash, this screw can brake, and will save Your servo, and You will finish Your run with an normal operating servo saver. After the run You can replace the broken screw easily, and You get back the Zero play Servo saver.
The new Brake Piston reduce dead zone by 50%, increase braking force and make it much easier to refill/fill the brake. Made from 7075-T6 Aluminum, so it is lighter than the older steel version.
