Scorched Parts unique Carbon Fibre and 7075 Aluminium Hybrid Chassis.
This is a one-off special made for a customer who changed plans. Only the Diffs, motormount and servo mount holes are included in the chassis.
Developed by Scorched Parts, this hybrid chassis uses a combination of Carbon Fibre, 7075 T6 aluminium, Titanium and Stainless Steel to bring out the best these materials have to offer.
The massively strong main body is made from 5mm thick top quality Toray 3k carbon fibre, providing fantastic strength to weight ratio. Precision machining for a perfect fit and a high quality satin finish.
The front section is 7075 T6 aluminium, up to 7.5mm thick in critical areas. With huge strength it includes correct chassis ‘kick up’ at the front to maintain correct steering geometry. Droop screw tabs benefit from the strength and hardness of the 7075.
The front section is retained using 2 specially developed cone nuts machined from Grade 5 Titanium.
Rear droop screw tabs are reinforced with stainless steel inserts to prevent rapid wear of the carbon fibre.
Use of an extra titanium rear skid is recommended for bashing.
Please be aware that many of the carbon parts have picked up cosmetic marks during manufacture. These will usually be hard to notice once assembled.
This chassis can be used with EXB / V5 cars or lower arms, but droop setting will be limited (Generally it's good to limit droop anyway).
Please be aware that carbon fibre does not like to be soaked in water for long periods of time - especially on surfaces that have become scratched.
