V1W X1 Chassis Bundle

The V1W-X1 Chassis is designed for class 1. The frame and cross braces are constructed from 2mm 6061 Aluminum. The cross braces fit thought the frame and are secured with 3x6mm screws with m3 Lock nuts. The construction incorporates some 3D printed parts for spacers, standoffs and cosmetic parts. The horizontal facing tabs can be used to mount beds or other accessories to the frame by substituting a 6mm spacer and longer screws for attachment.

Frame Assembly: The frame is designed to bend around the braces allowing the front and rear of the chassis to be narrower than the center optimizing the shock angles and tire clearance. If you are skilled with Welding or Brazing Aluminum, you can also Weld the cross Members and trim the screw tabs off.
