The shaft-driven 4WD chassis features carbon fiber upper/lower decks (2mm) and rear damper stay (3.5mm) which ensure superb strength. Front/rear ball differentials and center torque splitter help provide sure-footed traction. Racing steering set with 2mm thick carbon fiber plate offers linear steering response. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension with metal shafts and oil dampers allows a high degree of setting customization. Aluminum front knuckles feature the same shape as those on the original Avante and radius arm protector absorbs shocks to prevent damage to suspension arms. A total of 26 ball bearings contribute to the model’s smooth power.
