THE LIGHTNING IS COMING FROM VBC
So it may be a racer/chassis kinda day here, maybe we didn’t drive fast enough this weekend. Perhaps a trip to the track is needed to hold the trigger down for a little while. Some info about this kit. The rear pod design was inspired by the Lighting 12M which offers an ultra low CG, extremely lightweight, and durable. The cross brace support is made from cut carbon fiber tubing. This design feature does one of many things, it acts as a brace support and prevents the pod from tweaking, and stops dirt and debris from fouling the axle bearings. The wing support is machined from thick CNC 7075 black anodized aluminum with multiple wing mounting positions. A new design feature for the FXM is the inner spring perch position. After testing under various conditions, they decided the FXM handled with a lot more consistency with the springs being relocated to the inner most position. The FXM allows the option of running the battery in either a transverse or inline position.The transverse battery position can be adjusted forward by 5 mm. This additional tuning feature allows the driver to adjust the FXM for either more rear traction or steering depending on the track conditions. It’s definetly sharp looking.
