With the same wheel sections as the 2007 World Championship machine, world-class performance is now available in a standard model.

The new LAZER ZX-5 SP adopts the same wheel sections as the new specification version of the ZX-5 that entered into the 2007 World Championships. This newly designed suspension shows superior turning performance at different speeds and on a variety of different surface types. The advanced aerodynamics of the body also generates effective down-force to keep the machine anchored to the surface. With a rear midship mounted motor, the simple transmission and battery layout achieves optimal weight balance for greater control response. Easy control of the machine’s airborne posture marks it as an advanced racing buggy. Whether racing competitively at the highest level or turning the nearest available off-road space into a race track, the LAZER ZX-5 SP delivers winning speed!

 

Newly designed front suspension (knuckles, hubs, lower suspension arms) features control angles and plenty of setting options. Delivers easy turning control.

Newly designed rear suspension makes good use of changes in load for traction and easy control on a wide variety of surface types.
