Chassis Focus – Alexander Hagberg


Chassis – Xray T4 ’14
Motor – Orca 4.5
ESC – Orca
Batteries – Orca
Tires – Ride (handout)
Radio/Servo – Futaba/KO Propo
Bodyshell – Protoform LTC-R

Remarks – With this being a World Championship year and many of the title contenders having attended the Warm-up race in Florida last month our chassis focus feature is rather restricted this weekend as teams are running various prototype parts on their cars.  While allowed to photograph Alexander Hagberg’s Xray, the car does feature a number of undisclosed development parts which they team didn’t not wish elaborate on.  In terms of setup here in Mattsee moving additional weights on his T4 from the front to a more central position improved stability in the fast direction changes, and he decided to run progressive springs that allow a slightly harder driving style without compromising the overall side bite. Other changes of note is that the whole team opted for using heavier steel differential outdrives instead of the usual aluminum ones. Also, after trying different roll centre options, he finally decided to use some antidive in the front end.
