Recently, the team set out to a local track called PYC to test out all our economical version of our cars: The XQ1S and XM1S to get a better understanding of handling characteristics and obtain a basic setup. PYC was chosen due to the neutral track conditions and thus setups will work in most areas
The team was hard at work all day at the track.
Shot of our Execute XQ1S, silver hexes are prototype versions of our already released 4.25mm narrow hexes.
Massive pinion and very small spur gear used for blinky GT class testing. Track temperatures reached 55 degrees celcius, perfect for testing our cars in harsh conditions. Due to the hot track temps, we tested a carbon top deck (Taken from our XQ1) to see if it would help combat the high temps. Turned out, it worked very well. We put the car in it’s stock form to test right at the start, with our 40X V2 competition wheelset to simulate racing conditions. Different springs and graphite top deck was changed from the stock and we called it a day!
