By narrowing the width of the bulkhead, the supple flexibility that made use of chassis flex became possible. It is easy to fit various road conditions, realizing high traction. In addition, screws that fix the upper and lower bulkhead and upper deck are bundled with two types of aluminum and steel, and it is possible to change the flex by selecting according to the situation.
To support high power and flex chassis, the center pulley was supported and supported side to side and adopted a design that enables symmetrical fixation to the chassis together with the motor mount was adopted, and driving efficiency was improved. It is also possible to fix the center bulk and the post which also serves as the battery stopper with the upper deck by adding a spacer, so you can also adjust the front and rear flex balance.
A carbon graphite roll plate is newly adopted that controls the chassis roll accurately and controls the chassis behavior at cornering.
The fixing of the battery is not a glass tape stopper that affects the twist of the chassis, but it is a battery holder system that can float to a certain extent. It is also possible to prevent the battery from falling off, saving you the trouble of replacing.
By carefully examining every single material you use, parts that realize high breakage resistance will enhance survival performance in intense races. It also leads to a reduction in running costs, allowing users of various levels to enjoy more RC races. Especially the front and rear suspension arms that are worried about breakage fulfill the improvement of rigidity while maintaining the running performance and are greatly enhancing crash resistance.
Shock absorbers before and after adopt high big bore Ultra short shock specially designed for BD 9, born in collaboration with AXON. In addition, the spring also adopted the BD 9 exclusive design product of the progressive type before the chassis balance and the linear type afterwards. It accurately absorbs minute unevenness of the road surface and behavior of the machine, always felt traction, making the machine controllable.
Steering bell crank and center link essential for improving steering response is made of aluminum.

The redesigned aluminum main chassis is included as standard in the kit. The chassis is milled in places to promote a lower center of gravity, which is needed for high-grip circuits to prevent traction rolls. The steering response has been improved by moving the center damper forward. The YRX-12 creates a lot of rear traction, and the improved steering response allows the minimum steering angle to be used and the car to be better balanced through the corners.
