Cross Into the Rally World
The XV-01 is a crossover chassis which has been designed to offer dynamic R/C driving on both tarmac and gravel surfaces. It features a front-motor, belt-driven 4WD layout with the gearboxes, drive belt, battery, and R/C unit areas protected by covers against dirt and debris. Holes in the bottom of the chassis further help remove any debris which manages to get onboard to ensure unhindered off-road performance. In addition, detachable wheel well liners help prevent mud and gravel intrusion. Gear differential units enable customization with different viscosities of differential oils.
The 4-wheel double wishbone suspension is equipped with oil filled dampers and ensures plenty of suspension stroke and ground clearance. A long tie-rod steering system reduces bump steer during driving. The large front bumper has an approach angle built in to help deflect rough surfaces. Battery pack is placed longitudinally and can be replaced without detaching body via a hatch on the underside of the chassis. The chassis is also equipped with a transponder stay, rally block tires with inner sponges, and 16-spoke wheels.
