The 18XT built upon the team’s previous 4WD vehicles to decrease weight while increasing performance, durability, and maneuverability! It features a new and improved overrunning front differential, an electronic shifter, and a tuned suspension for a smoother ride. In addition, in the 2021-22 season, the team completed more testing and validation than ever before, proof testing on-car components to their expected load before competition use, while pushing others beyond their limits to analyze their failure modes. At our Tennessee and Rochester competitions, it was clear that our hard work paid off!<
