D413 Stretch Aluminum Chassis Set by Schelle Racing
This product was added to our catalog on December 10, 2015.
This is an optional D413 Stretch Aluminum Chassis Set. This aluminum chassis is ideal for high grip tracks like sugar, carpet and indoor blue-groove. The reduced flex and added weight will help stabilize the car in high grip conditions.
After watching the D413 in the hands of several locals, as well as Schelle team drivers, the ROAR Champion car received great reviews and praise. The keen eye of chief engineer Kurt Wenger observed that a lengthened wheelbase could improve the car even more. The D413 in kit chassis length pitches very quickly front to rear when entering and exiting turns. Drivers are also aware that in shorty configuration the D413 can struggle with exaggerated throttle response in the air.
The +4mm longer wheelbase of the stretch chassis gives the car a longer footprint, reducing the pitching weight transfer that can cause the car to “3 wheel” and pick up a rear tire in the turns. Also in the air, the car with the longer chassis is less sensitive. All in all, test drivers reported that the car was easier to control and drive hard without getting upset on braking, turn-in, or corner exit. Jumping landings into turns are easier to control as well.
In addition, on medium to large tracks, drivers will see more consistent lap times as the longer wheelbase is smoother and more stable in high-speed sweepers. The Schelle chassis set will be an advantage for larger track sizes and as grip increases (grooved, carpet, and sugar). The chassis is offered in premium carbon fiber material to keep the running weight near 1700 grams to take advantage of the lightweight “shorty” configuration.
The Schelle D413 Stretch Aluminum Chassis is designed to fit kit and aftermarket bodies and body mount holes, with only slight trimming needed on the nose cone.
