Algemene Technische Specificatie DAX RUSH  (alle types)

LAYOUT:
Front engine, rear wheel drive

CHASSIS:
Comprehensively triangulated space-frame chassis with integrated structural rear hoop. Additional stiffness provided by bonded & riveted aluminium panels

BODY:
Self-colour GRP composite with the option of the bonnet and side panels in aluminium.

SUSPENSION / AXLES:
Front:

Ford Sierra (not Cosworth or 4 x 4) knuckle and wheel hub/flange assemblies with DAX unequal length, dual wishbones and Spax coil-over dampers. Design provides for neutral scrub, anti-dive geometry with full adjustment for height, damping and camber (Note: – The DAX Rush is unusual in using a shim adjustment system for camber setting which ensures much greater strength, accuracy and speed).

Front (with optional CC&AR system)
DAX fabricated, neutral scrub, front uprights with Ford Sierra (not Cosworth or 4 x 4) wheel hub/flange assemblies and DAX unequal length dual wishbones. Spax coil-over dampers, fully adjustable for height and damping. This option includes the unique (patent applied for) Camber Compensation & Anti-Roll system which optimises the tyre-to-road contact patch, and maximises grip, during cornering, accelerating, braking and all transient states in between.

Rear – De Dion:
Ford Sierra/Scorpio Granada differential unit, driveshaft assemblies, CV joints, bearing carrier assemblies and wheel hub/flanges integrated into a DAX De Dion suspension design with upper ‘A’ frame and twin lower radius arm location. Spax coil-over dampers, provide full adjustment for height and damping.

Rear – IRS:
Ford Sierra/Scorpio Granada (disc brake variants only) differential unit, driveshaft assemblies, CV joints, bearing carrier assemblies and wheel hub/flanges with DAX fabricated rear uprights and unequal length dual wishbones. Spax coil-over dampers, fully adjustable for height and damping

Rear – IRS (with optional CC&AR system)
As standard IRS, above, but including unique (patent applied for) Camber Compensation & Anti-Roll system.
Please note: the rear CC&AR system is currently only available for competition use.

BRAKES:
DAX, Dual Circuit, Balance Bar Braking System – provides a significant improvement in braking performance compared to a conventional tandem master cylinder system by allowing the braking effort to front and rear axles to be adjusted independently, so that the optimum braking balance can be achieved.

Front Brakes:
Ford Sierra discs and calipers. Depending on the Sierra chosen, discs will be 240mm dia. solid, 240mm dia. vented (most common) or 260mm dia. vented
As a cost effective upgrade for Rushes fitted with 16″ diameter wheels and above, DAX can supply adapter plates which relocate the standard Sierra calipers (240mm dia. vented disc type) allowing them to be used with the much larger, 278mm dia, Cosworth 4 x 4 front discs

Rear – Discs
Ford Sierra/Scorpio Granada discs and calipers. Depending on the donor vehicle, discs will be 253mm dia. solid, 273mm dia. solid or 273mm dia. vented

Rear – Drums (De Dion only)
Ford Sierra/Scorpio Granada drums. Depending on the donor vehicle, drums will be 203.2mm(8″) dia. or 228.6mm(9″) dia.
