Xtreme Racing TEN-SCTE "Hybrid" Carbon Fiber/Aluminum Chassis Kit w/2mm Top Plate
Xtreme Racing TEN-SCTE "Hybrid" Carbon Fiber/Aluminum Chassis Kit w/2mm Top Plate
Al - Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Bought this as a replacement for my stock chassis which began to warp over time, and eventually cracked from hard running. Cons: A bit confusing to put together because of a lack of instruction guide (but a day's worth of trial and error got it built). Rigidity seems lacking compared to the stock chassis. The chassis twists on a central front-to-rear axis when holding the front and rear diffs (you can actually see the chassis twisting, and I am not sure about that being a good thing, knowing how brittle carbon fiber can be), but I could have put it together wrong, it wouldn't surprise me because I was literally guessing the build process. I also have the TLR tuning kit for this car and the adjustable hinge pin tuning set didn't fit well in the front and it didn't fit at all in the rear. I had to shave down the rear a bit to get those parts to fit. Droop screws are also an issue. In the stock chassis (which was quite a nice grade aluminum), the droop screws had smashed their way into the chassis, and knowing the brittle qualities of carbon fiber, it would only be a matter of time until the front and rear diffs would crack away due to droop screws smashing into the brittle carbon fiber so I recommend removing those droop screws if you are considering to buy this chassis. Battery tray. Uhh... Very flimsy from the looks of things. There are two pins that screw onto screws from the bottom of the chassis, then the strap itself is screwed in with a hex over the top of the battery and the two pins are quite thin, and there is only two of them. I dont know how it will hold up over time. Its a tight squeeze to get my 2S LiPos, let alone my 3S in there, and I had to also modify the existing design to get my extra high KV 2S into the battery holder. Also, the batteries are unbelievably close to the center diff. There is less than a millimeter's worth of wiggle room between the spur gear and the battery and I would imagine that a fair jump could knock the battery into the spur and lunch your battery up like its Thanksgiving's turkey... And that could result in a number of interesting demises to your car... Carbon fiber, at least when it is as thin as this chassis is, is very brittle. I know it was in an effort to save weight but I could imagine a few rocks and stones could carve some rather unwelcome cuts into this chassis, and after prolonged rough-running, and I could imagine it breaking from the rocks so I recommend getting an under tray along side this chassis. I was lucky enough to score a "TBG under tray" on ebay for my car, but, knowing that there are NO OTHER under trays on the market for this truck, at least to my knowledge, then I wouldn't advise this chassis for people who run on rock-littered tracks. Pros: Very light. You can feel its lightness, as I stated before, and it looks sharp. Adjustability of the battery tray, forward to rear, is far better than the stock chassis. Four adjustability pegs compared to the stock's two. Apart from the hinge pin areas, the chassies is very nicely machined. Very nicely done there Xtreme racing. While driving, you can feel the lightness. The car may not corner on concrete or clay as fast as it use to, but when you do flip over, it wants to get back onto all four wheels immediately. I only got it stuck on its roof once, and that was when I got the car wedged into a corner. The chassis removes the stock battery tray, and overall lowers the battery and ESC in the truck by about one to two millimeters, thus overall removing weight and lowering the overall center of gravity. All in all its an okay chassis, I have yet to see how it will withstand the rather harsh punishment my track and I can dish out, but hopefully, after I log, lets say, twenty five to fifty hours of run time with this chassis, I will report back here and give some final thoughts, tips, tricks, and my report on this chassis. Cheers.
