See: XRAY

XRAY have introduced new long and short 2.5mm aluminium chassis with bent sides for the XB2’20. Both chassis are CNC machined from high-quality 2.5mm Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum and come black coated at XRAY’s own in-house fully robotic coating line. These chassis feature bent sides for improved weight balance and increased traction with maximum stability of the car while the rear part of the chassis is narrower. Usable on both Dirt and Carpet editions, the long chassis increases traction making it ideal for low traction and bumpy Astro Turf tracks while the short chassis increases rotation in corners and makes the car more reactive, characteristics that are more suitable for carpet tracks.
