This is Xray X12 2021 US Specs 1/12 2WD Pan Car Kit EP. With XRAY’s no-compromise, high-competition focus, the X12’21 is offered in two versions again this year, with each one equipped for the demands of different track conditions out of the box. Whether on low to medium-grip tracks which are typical in Europe, or on super-high grip tracks which are typical in the US, there is an X12 to fit each occasion. Both choices are built on the same core platform with interchangeable parts.
The aluminum chassis and rear POD have a completely all-new design and shape. The chassis was redesigned to accommodate the all-new front Tweak-Free Suspension and the all-new rear Tweak-Free POD System. The side link mounting system was redesigned as well and is mounted directly to the chassis and the chassis features new slots for adjustment of the servo mount position. The chassis and rear POD edges are beveled, for less resistance to the ground during cornering.
Both EU and US Edition kits include an aluminum chassis as stock equipment this year. The EU version includes the flex alu chassis with more cut-outs better suited for low to medium grip conditions. The US version includes solid alu version, which has less cut-outs, for minimal flex making the car more stable and predictable in higher traction situations. An optional 2.5mm graphite chassis is available as an additional tuning choice, and is a good option for low grip carpet racing, as well as asphalt.
The rear of the X12 has been completely redesigned and features the all-new Tweak-Free POD Mounting System. The all-new POD parts include new aluminum bulkheads and new graphite upper and lower alu pod plates. The new mounting system improves traction and stability of the car and eliminates tweak issues after crashes.The all-new graphite upper plate was redesigned to mount to the bulkheads with centering pins and 4 screws to secure the assembly in proper alignment and to minimize the chances of tweak after an impact on the track. The rear POD also features completely redesigned one-piece bulkheads to achieve maximum durability. The new bulkheads allow for rear axle height adjustment via traditional eccentric bushings.
All-new aluminum Tweak-Free Pod Mounting System improves traction and stability of the car and eliminates tweak issues after crashes. The new system allows for a significantly lowered roll center, lowered center of gravity, and pivot height adjustment using different shims. The all-new pod mounting position choices include the standard rearward mounting position where the center pivot is located in-line with the side link pivot balls on the rear pod plate, and the new forward location that places the pivot 2mm forward of the link mounting points. This adjustment has a significant effect on the cornering feel: Forward - gives a good balance between front and rear traction, and is well suited for most conditions. Rearward - gives the most steering, and most free rear end, especially suited for high grip carpet.
