X1 Rig Killer Champion ’20/21

Team Driver Matt Bandy (USA) has been dominating the X1 Rig Killer Comps® series with his Flatgekko™ C23 V1 Supaflat based beast and deserved to pull the X1 Rig Killer Champion ’20 and ’21 titles.

With 8x Flatgekko™ wins of the 12 round series in 2021 Matt delivered tons of proof about the capabilities of the C23 V1 system that we used to push the performance of the C23 V2R LCG Chassis System up to the sky.

Ultra Light SLS Printed High-Tech Nylon Polymer Parts

30% weight loss? Yessir. We decided to take it to the next level and use the ultra light and rock solid PA12 high-tech nylon polymer paired with the high-end SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) 3D printing technology for the Flatgekko™ C23 V2R LCG Chassis Accessories with metal inserts for long lasting threads.

2.5mm Toray® Premium High-Grade Graphite Chassis Rails

Ultimate performance requires ultimate raw materials. That’s why the Flatgekko™ C23 V2R LCG chassis rails are CNC machined of Toray® premium high-grade graphite, the ultimate level of carbon fibers.

The 2.5mm high-grade graphite chassis rails weighing 55g/pair for the Maxxx™ edition and 44g/pair for the Supaflat™ edition are the perfect combination of ultra durability and ultra low weight distribution.

Flattened Geometry

Being LCG maniacs we just went further with pushing COG (center of gravity) as low as possible and lowered the shock mount hole patterns on the C23 V2R shock hoops one row lower compared to the C23 V1 ones.

The rear shock hoops of the C23 V2R Maxxx™ rails were also moved forward to ensure more angled shock mounting options for even better climbing. And oh my god the all-new flattened geometry works like a charm.

All-New V-Noze™ Front Design

The idea of the supersmart V-Noze™ front design by Factory Driver Massimo Bonvini ensures implementing the most extreme steering angle with no interference between the wheels and the C23 V2R chassis rails.

Giving tons of wheel clearance the V-Noze™ front design is a game changer geometry to improve performance by maximizing the steering angle. No more compromise with tires dimensions or steering.

Superlight & Ultra Strong Panhard Mount Design

The all-new C23 V2R Panhard Mount design is superlightened while remained stiff thanks to the high-tech PA12 material and the latest SLS 3D printing technology.

The vertical mounting screw ends in a countersunk hex nut on the top, so the C23 V2R Panhard Mount now became a superlight but bombproof mounting solution.

Frequently Asked Questions

What C23 V2R setup do I need?

Defining the proper Flatgekko C23 V2R LCG Chassis Kit setup for you depends on the planned purpose of use.

ENTRY LEVEL – Entry level LCG crawler for a good start

If you are new to LCG scale rock crawling you want a setup that gives you a good and capable basis you will be able to easily upgrade later.

In this case we recommend to pick one of the popular builder’s kits like the Axial SCX10II, Element RC Enduro, Axial Capra or the Traxxas TRX-4 Sport kit.

You can easily leverage most of the key parts of your builder’s kit like axles, transmission, driveshafts, shocks, wheels, body mounts, etc. so this is the most cost effective way to have a powerful start in LCG rock crawler RC.

In this point we recommend to decide if you want to run on CMS (chassis mounted servo) or AMS (axle mounted servo). You can learn more about CMS and AMS in the answer at the “What is CMS and AMS and which one to choose?” question below.

Having any further C23 V2R LCG Chassis System related setup questions?

Feel free to contact us and we help you.

What is CMS and AMS and which one to choose?

The CMS Setup

CMS means chassis mounted servo. In a CMS LCG crawler setup you want to use a CMS mount plate to mount the steering servo to the chassis. With the Flatgekko™ C23 V2/V2R X-Low™ Horizontal CMS Servo Mount you can leverage the low COG (center of gravity) of the AMS setup but mounted the servo on the chassis.

For a CMS setup you want to use only one front upper link (mostly the right one) to avoid bumpsteer and other disadvantages and use the Flatgekko™ C23 V2/V2R Panhard Mount and a panhard link to stabilize the setup.

The Flatgekko™ C23 V2/V2R X-Low™ Horizontal CMS Servo Mount, the Flatgekko™ C23 V2/V2R Panhard Mount and the panhard link are included in all Flatgekko™ C23 V2R CMS Chassis Kits.

The CMS setup is more scale but can slightly raise the COG (center of gravity) of your LCG crawler depending on what CMS mount solution you use. We recommend to use the CMS setup mostly on rigs built for SORRCA Class 2 as it gives you additional scale points, any other comp rulesets where CMS is recommended or maybe a must or if you simply prefer its scaleness.

The AMS Setup

AMS means axle mounted servo (a.k.a. SOA, servo on axle). In an AMS LCG crawler setup you mount the steering servo onto the front axle with the help of an AMS mount. AMS mount is fully axle dependant and can be provided by stock like the Capra one or any aftermarket manufacturer.

The AMS setup is not so scale like CMS but it takes the COG (center of gravity) lower. This way the AMS setup is a perfect choice on LCG crawlers built for performance driven comp rulesets like WRCCA Performance Scale, ISRCC International Scale Rock Crawler Championship™ or if you prefer performance over scaleness.

What is Maxxx™ and Supaflat™ and which one to choose?

The C23 V2R Maxxx™ LCG Chassis

The Flatgekko™ C23 V2R Maxxx™ LCG chassis kits give you the classic rail design with both front and rear shock hoops. These rails don’t need any special shock setup or treatment, you can use your best practice in front and rear.

The C23 V2R Supaflat™ LCG Chassis

The Flatgekko™ C23 V2R Supaflat™ LCG chassis kits are famous for their special design having no rear shock hoops. The rear shocks are mounted directly to the chassis rails giving the possibility of building a real-world flat bed that is more scale and even lowers your COG (center of gravity) in the rear end.

Due to the laid shock positioning the C23 V2R Supaflat™ version needs some special shock setup and treatment. After laying the shocks they significantly soften up so you want to use shorter shock ETE (eye-to-eye) and harder springs in rear to reset proper stiffness.

The Pro-Line Pro-Spec 90-95mm Scaler Shocks perfectly fit in front (maybe drooped to 80mm) and the Pro-Line Pro-Spec 70-75mm Scaler Shocks with hard springs and 60W+ oil are perfect choice in rear.

What materials and technologies do you use?

When engineering any details of the Flatgekko™ C23 V2R LCG Crawler Chassis System we keep on using the latest technologies and high-tech materials.

Toray® Premium High-Grade Graphite

Toray’s M-series high modulus carbon fibers represent the highest modulus PAN-based carbon fibers available. PAN-based high modulus fibers are superior to pitch-based fibers due to tensile and compressive strengths that are often times more than twice that of a corresponding pitch-based fiber.

PA12 High-Tech Nylon Polymer

Crafting a superlight but still ultra powerful competition level LCG crawler chassis system requires careful engineering when it comes to materials and only the best of the best comes to consideration.

That’s why we decided to take it to the next level with the Flatgekko™ C23 V2R LCG Crawler Chassis System and use the ultra light and rock solid PA12 high-tech nylon polymer paired with the high-end SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) 3D printing technology for the Flatgekko™ C23 V2R LCG Chassis Accessories.

SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) Industrial 3D Printing

SLS (Selective Laser Sintering)  is an additive manufacturing (AM) technique that uses a laser as the power source to sinter powdered material (typically nylon or polyamide), aiming the laser automatically at points in space defined by a 3D model, binding the material together to create a solid structure.

It is similar to selective laser melting; the two are instantiations of the same concept but differ in technical details. SLS (as well as the other mentioned AM techniques) is a relatively new technology that so far has mainly been used for rapid prototyping and for low-volume production of component parts.
