Neox GS

The world champion
On Saturday 27th August 2011 Guillaume Solon and his Contrast Neox with black and orange bodywork were proclaimed World Champions in Brest (France). We had to manufacture for everybody the Contrast Neox GS replica World Champion, with those all improvements tested along the year 2011 and with the initials of Guillaume Solon.

The cars of the Neox series are the result of many years of technical evolution over a base, the Neo and Neo 2.5 chassis, which already revolutionized the market due to their advanced technical solutions when they appeared for the first time. The good decisions in all the evolutions made until present day led us to win the most difficult competition, while they transformed the Neox models in the favourite election of many drivers all over the World thanks to their ease of driving, in competition as well as for using it as a hobby, without thinking about races.

The Neox GS is the latest evolutions of the Neo saga and it closes this family of cars that is replaced by the new Neox Q with a structure and concept similar to that of Quattro 4WD.

The Neox GS is based on some basic and necessary technical concepts but which are difficult to combine in many cases: 

Low weight... under the legal minimum Weight is the only magnitude of a car that affects to ALL its actions and reactions, either the acceleration, the braking, the agility between curves or the tyres rubbing, among others. Having a total low weight like the 9,8 kilos of the Neox GS, even under the minimum allowed in the regulations, is very important to improve the general performance of the car when you are driving fast to the limit. Centring that weight within the space placed between the two axles of the car is very beneficial to improve agility and diminish the resistance of the inertia moment of the car when driving.
Low gravity center It is one of the most important aspects of a car, essential to get a good and easy performance when driving at the highest speedy. The more you take the gravity centre down the farthest the physical limit of the car is placed and due to this the chassis becomes more competitive. Contrast Neox GS has the lowest gravity centre of the world large scale and we keep taking it down with new pieces…everything in the Neox GS is dependent on getting the lowest position of the gravity centre.
Mobile ballasts system in the chassis With a total weight inferior to the minimum regulated, adding ballasts to the chassis is essential to be within the rules. The placement of this ballast in the chassis reduces the gravity centre even more, which is very beneficial. The chassis of the Neox GS offers three sockets in the chassis and three models of ballast of 100, 160 and 250 grams to use the most appropriate combination of weight and position for every moment. By combining these ballasts and their sockets it is possible to move the gravity centre in its longitudinal axle (front-rear) controlling the understeering or oversteering of the car. A wonderful advance introduced in 2004 and not available in other large scale cars.
Advanced suspension geometry The suspension geometry of a real car and also that of an auto model one is something more complex than placing the roll centre and the gravity centre. In the Contrast Neox GS we have used a computer Simulator of real cars controlled by the wise man of the chassis Jaume Xifré (Seat Sport) to choose the best compromise for the necessities of a 1/5 competition car, such as the maximum rear grip, a great spinning agility in small curves, a great ease of approximation in fast curves and the maximum traction possible when accelerating, all this combined with the minimum degradation possible of the front and rear tyres, achieved thanks to the fact that the car does not vary its car wide when moving the suspension.
Balance between the speed of reaction and ease of driving Not everything has been done by computers in the Neox Gs. The last touch has been a human one thanks to the suggestions of our official drivers and clients all over the world. A fast car must be aggressive and it is usually difficult to drive; on the other hand an easy car is usually slow. At some point in between there is the ideal combination we have been searching for from our beginnings. We have found in the Neox GS that point of magic balance. We have polished the balance between aggressiveness and the speed of reaction needed in a racing car combined with the ease of driving and a high total grip to feel the maximum control from the transmitter. The point of balance does exist and the Contrast Neox GS has it.
Mechanic easiness The mechanic easiness of the Neox GS is appreciated when it is compared to other cars in the market. Over the last years other cars have been adopting the technical advances introduced by Contrast in 2004, such as the adjustable and removable servo saver, the fast change of differential or the fast disassembling of the engine, but no one has achieved the mechanical accessibility and the technical simplicity of the Neox GS, advances that can be specially noticed when it is necessary to change a broken servo or an engine when there are a few minutes left for a final. The studied simplicity of the Contrast Neox GS allows you to sort out urgent mechanical problems on time. It also outstands our disassembling by blocks that drastically reduces the time and work of maintaining and cleaning of the car.
