Chassis Focus – Ty Tessmann


The car that won this year’s US Nationals in the hands of Ty Tessmann has broken cover here in Chico. A very non conventional design the HB D4-13 can be configured in two ways with a shorty pack on one side at the rear with the motor mounted to the rear of the centre diff and the electronics to the front or with a saddle pack at the rear and the motor to the front of the car and main electronics in the middle. Looking like a well finished car, nice features include a centre gear differential, wishbones that can be stiffened with insert plates, widely adjustable Ackermann, carbon chassis & top deck and the unique front and rear shock tower braces. The car normally comes with a 3 piece body shell but Ty is using his own designed Pro-Line Type-R shell this weekend.
