This is Xray GTXE 2022 Luxury 1/8 4WD Onroad GT Car Kit EP. The GTXE’22 features a longer chassis plate that is the backbone of the electric focused concept. The chassis length is increased to stretch the wheelbase, combined with the wider rear section, resulting in improved stability. The updated layout also includes provisions to install the new rear diffusor and mount the front and rear suspension holders directly to the chassis plate. The chassis features a new locking system for the servo saver posts to ensure the components will stay secure during chassis flex in extreme conditions. The chassis is CNC-machined from 3mm high-quality Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum; strategically machined in low-stress areas and then anodized to make it as light as possible without affecting strength or rigidity.
The new E-concept layout uses a forward motor position and saddle pack batteries. The motor is placed in front of the center differential, opposite the steering servo, with split, saddle pack batteries in the rear. The split packs lay flat in the holders, reducing the CG compared to taller brick pack layouts. The motor has better cooling in the front location, and the split batteries also maintain lower temperatures during each run.
The new saddle pack layout features tweak-free split battery holders to secure the packs. These battery holders will fit both standard and ‘shorty’ packs, with the shorty packs allowing additional weight balance control by shifting them front/back in the holders. In addition to the new battery and motor positions, the GTXE’22 includes a molded electronics plate that is positioned next to the steering servo. The ESC, receiver and transponder are all installed on this plate for easy removal and maintenance.
To improve the consistency of the differential performance throughout each run, the gear box covers are milled out for air flow to help reduce diff temperatures. This prevents overheating the diff oils and ensures more consistent handling during long mains and extends intervals between rebuilds. The rear gearbox and cover both have additional material milled out to increase airflow and cooling for the rear diff. The front upper bumper brace was also modified with a milled opening to allow more air into the front gear box.
All-new front and rear suspension holders are separated from the bulkheads and installed on the chassis. Mounting the holders directly to the chassis plate eliminates any flex from the bulkheads, improving the precision and responsiveness of the GTXE’22. The front kick-up angle was reduced, helping to create more steering and reduce tire wear. The rear holders still offer multiple anti-squat positions, but the new plates have less anti-squat, which is better suited for the GT category to increase the stability of the car. The new aluminum suspension holders continue to feature the Integrated Suspension Settings™ (I.S.S.) that allows for quick & easy suspension geometry changes. Using the eccentric suspension bushings inserted into aluminum suspension holders, and a few suspension shims, the GTXE suspension geometry can be completely adjusted in seconds.
