The new super-narrow chassis is 24mm narrower compared to previous versions, eliminating contact with the track in corners while rolling and offering improved cornering speed.
The new chassis includes a slot for the composite battery backstop which allows 5mm battery position adjustment when using the most frequently used cross-chassis alignment configuration.
CNC-machined from custom-manufactured 2.5mm high-grade graphite material with a specially-designed compound for carpet racing and asphalt racing, the new X1 chassis allows the car to handle ideally on either indoor or outdoor tracks, on either carpet or asphalt.
Chassis design, layout, and flex have significant influence on the handling of the X1. The final chassis design offers optimal stiffness for excellent handling, while still being flexible enough to generate maximum traction.
The super-narrow chassis front allows for maximum traction while having excellent steering and cornering speed. The chassis has ideal torsional stability to help eliminate the “scrub effect” in high-speed corners.
Optional aluminum chassis – available in either full stiff or flex version – allow you to tailor your X1 for particular track conditions. A 2mm graphite chassis for low grip asphalt tracks is optionally available.
Side Link Adaptors.
With the super-narrow chassis design, pod side link adaptors were changed from chassis mounting to graphite side link adaptors which are mounted to the chassis with shims and screws. The graphite plate includes 2-positions for pod link mounting; outer position keeps the pod link straight, while the inner position allows for angled mounting of the pod links for improved in-corner steering.
Steering Blocks.All-new steering blocks incudes extra Ackermann position which provides more in-corner steering required mostly at asphalt tracks. The new position has a nearly 100% Ackermann curve to provide maximum steering characteristics.
The super-precise inner hole for the kingpin steel pin ensures wobble-free assembly
Shock Adaptor.All-new shock adaptor allows for a more frontward shock mounting position, and when the adaptor is removed the standard rearward position is achieved.
The new longer alternative position – which allows for lengthening the shock and mounting the shock on the graphite servo holder – improves drivability over bumps and improves on-power traction. This setting is recommended for low-traction or bumpy tracks.
The standard shock position improves steering response and is recommended for higher-traction tracks.
Shock adaptor allows for quick & easy shock position changes to adjust the downstop.
All-new graphite servo holder was redesigned to allow the mounting of the new shock adaptor, and thus offering the new long-shock alternative.
All-new tweak-free lower pivot brace was redesigned for quicker & easier mounting of the pod plate on the chassis. Thanks to the nut groove on the brace, the nuts that connect the chassis with the brace will find the proper position by themselves so there is no need to reset the position for free movement when the pod plate is mounted.
The transition of the rear pod works via the pivot brace, which features an ultra-small and lightweight pivot ball for greater movement of the pivot brace. The pivot ball has an internal thread.
Rear Link Brace.All-new rear link brace has longer leads for battery side stops, allowing battery position adjustment on chassis by 5mm either more forward or more rearward while still keeping the battery securely in place.
The rear graphite brace allows the side tubes to be mounted on the car so that an optional side shock may be mounted as well.
Battery Backstops.The chassis features a new groove to allow revised mounting of the battery backstop and adjustment of battery position when cross-chassis battery alignment is used.
To eliminate battery movement when inline battery alignment is used, the chassis features holes for composite battery backstops.
All parts are purpose-designed and manufactured by XRAY from premium materials including legendary HUDY Spring Steel™, premium Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum, high-grade custom-formulated graphite material, and our own proprietary custom blends of composite materials.

European Champions.Back-to-Back Champions
The 2016 European Championship was the first EC ever where the XRAY X1 dominated the race by placing 5 cars in the A-main, taking TQ honors, and having a double-podium finish (1st and 3rd). The XRAY X1 the first-ever European Champion Formula car with Jan Ratheisky at the wheel.
In 2017, Team XRAY repeated the great success by bringing back-to-back European Champion titles back home, as well as having the most cars in the main final. Jan Ratheisky and Martin Hudy used 2018 prototype parts to dominate the race and take the podium win and 3rd place, respectively. It is the same out-of-the box X1 that you can purchase and race now.
With the most competitive Formula class racing series in the world – the ETS series – the pressure is high for dependable performance during the season at all the different tracks across Europe. With the world’s best drivers in the Formula class battling for the overall ETS season title, Jan Ratheisky has won the title for the past 3 years in a row (2014-2015-2016) with his XRAY X1, making the X1 the most winning and most successful Formula car.
Now the rest of the world can get and race the same ETS Championship-winning Formula car; trialed by fire and successfully proven in the most competitive racing series in the world.
