With its heritage built at the
top of the racing world, the famous LAZER ZX-5 chassis has
undergone a complete regeneration. This model is based on the FS
conversion kit and not the SP competition kit held in high
regard by many competition drivers.
The new layout features a 10mm longer wheelbase and the motor
and spur gear are positioned as far forward as possible. This
combines with the 3 by 3 battery layout to produce optimal
weight distribution and results in ideal surface pressure from
the tires for effective traction and sure-footed turning.
The position of the motor and
spur gear uses the normal reverse rotation of the propeller
shaft to control counter torque. The ZX-5�s dominant
performance was represented by four places in the top 10 final
of the 2008 1/10 EP Buggy Japan Nationals and well as more
drivers than any other model.
Traction - 10mm longer wheelbase delivers improved
traction and performance over gaps in the track for greater
New Chassis Layout - New layout positions the motor and
spur gear as far forward as possible. Optimal mass balance
delivers sure-footed turning and stability.
Front End - Newly designed front suspension (knuckles,
hubs, lower suspension arms) features large control angles
and plenty of setting options. Delivers easy turning
Advantage - Newly designed rear suspension makes good
use of changes in load for traction and easy control on a
wide variety of surface types.
- Reverse rotation of center shaft minimizes counter torque.
Slipper Clutch - Features 2-piece slipper clutch that
provides traction efficiency.
Weight Distribution - 3 : 3 battery layout achieves
optimum weight distribution.
Maintenance - Tie-rods and upper arms are combined into
the one part for simpler maintenance.
- Features advanced aerodynamically designed body and wing.
Subtle curves generate effective down-force. Contributes to
airborne stability and posture control.
Coated - Velvet coated shock cylinders minimize
resistance for the smoothest movement.
