Max Speed Technology has officially announced the silver FS-01D front motor chassis for release on February 22, 2012. The special pre-order period is over and now you can purchase from your local retailer. This chassis is one of the first full front motor chassis kit to hit the market. An entire line-up of silver option parts will also be available for this chassis. Check out the full post for more details.
The new MST FS-01D front motor chassis will now feature silver carbon graphite. The new silver surface carbon material provides desirable flex characteristics and styling. This chassis will be in high demand, so pre-orders are recommended if you want one.
The FS-01D now offers the user more options when it comes to mechanical chassis traction. Several additional silver carbon components are integrated for chassis rigidity adjustment. The new FS-01D silver chassis has been designed with high traction in mind. Manufactured to approximately 2.0mm with several cut-outs to promote greater flex characteristics. The most noticeable being the side wings and the W shaped piece in front of the rear tensioner. These pieces can be adjusted by screws to create more or less chassis flex. Which is a benefit for the more technical RC Drifters out there.
The new FS-01D Silver Chassis features 2 distinct battery positions.
