Spy Shots! EXOTEK Aluminum LCG Chassis for the Associated SC10 4X4

Oct 27, 2011 1 Comment by

On my last outing at SDRC Raceway in San Diego, Ca (sdrcraceway.com/), I caught up with Exotek (www.exotekracing.com), which was testing their new LCG (low center of gravity) chassis for the Associated SC10 4×4. At 5 oz heavier than the stock chassis, it’s adding stability and traction to this SC that is sometimes considered “too lightweight”. Odd to hear in competitive RC racing where we strive to get our vehicles lightweight. In this instance though, heavier works. I had a chance to drive a stock SC10 4×4 versus one with the LCG chassis (w/identical suspension settings and tires) and there was a dramatic difference in handling. The weight of the new chassis aided the truck to generate traction in all sections of a turn (initial/mid/exit) and wasn’t so easily pushed around when it rubbed fenders with trucks heavier than it. When it came time to jumping with the LCG chassis, feel is improved and made take offs and landings a breeze.

The prototype chassis is shown. The production chassis will be 6061 machined aluminum and will have a gun metal finish. Exotek logos will be etched on the chassis for some added style. Both standard LiPo stick or saddle packs can be used via custom carbon fiber mounts. Release date will be around November 7th and estimated street price will be around $109.95.  -  Joel Navarro
