XAVAGE is designed to be the ultimate wind breaker of all exotic supercar, the sharp edged surface and polygonal aero dynamic structure provide force glide against wind resistance. Its not easy to come out with an ideal design that combines elements of wind, aerodyanmic, hydraulic principal and public eye catching looks. Even tough XAVAGE is merely concept in design the looks of its body overall tells the truth and differentiate between facts and fiction in aero technology.
XAVAGE holds basic key to SupermotoXL Designs:
EVOLUTION- Our cars always an evolution from previous parent models, an improvement from experience and hands down from one original genetic from other. XAVAGE is an evolution of its parent's genetic the NEMIXIS and X3-SIXTY
AERO-DYNAMICS- Our cars always an aero head in designs, slice and break through the wind barrier. The Wind Resistance always been a factor in design, i sculpt the body based on the flow of the wind direction.
RADICAL- A car physical looks and appearance that send dominant messages to any road rival. A looks that have sense of angry, masculine, radical, rebellious, power, ego, luxury and most important a sign of domination. Sharp headlights, wide body, low CG and huge rear power plant compartment ready to charge head on with competitors.
OUT OF THE BOX IDEAS- Nothing comes close to our design especial with lines of “CD” (Concept Design) models its always been and always be different. “X” always been our trademark/signature and we always incorporate this pattern into our design which fused and blend in into the contour of the car bodies. XAVAGE maxed more among other lines of our car before her, The rear always been the most striking uniqueness which makes SupermotoXL’ Designs XAVAGE and others striking than other super cars world.
SPEED- The theme of every design is always been speed, When I make the car for speed its always been dashing forward line layout design. Pin head like design, sexy, brute force body styling and massive engine hp.
XAVAGE design is heavily influence by wind or should we call airfoil factor. The forward edgy sharp looks are meant to break the head wind allow smaller increment of broken wind to flow though XAVAGE body surface in proper path. These path redirect the wind to several surface point around the body for several purposes that includes:
Down force effect:
To create downward air pressure to keep the car stays on the ground for more grip and stability
Side force effect:
To create sideways air pressure to keep the car stay straight by dissipating left and right air pressure to 50/50, avoid the car going sideways or skidding.
Create rear vacuum point where the rear car produce a vacuum void and quickly filled by the frontal air pressure which results the car pull/throttle forward like a balloon gushed its air to the rear. Which is why XAVAGE and parent car before her have much bigger and wide rear body and curvy architectural surface pattern built or this purpose.
Forcing air into ventilation system for internal purposes. Made possible by channeling the outer air to glide through deep narrow grooves on the body surfaces.
XAVAGE adopt almost 85% of its design pattern from its parent the NEMIXIS XL-GT and frontal body dynamic from X3-SIXTY. With proper aerodynamic calculation and distribution body mass proportion XAVAGE was born.
XAVAGE car structure made from 3 layers, these are.
XAVAGE main chassis is a monocoque structures sculpted from 1 pieces new composite steel nylon material, rigid and absorbent to vibration.
The parts which holds crucial components of the car to the chassis. These include cockpit bucket/tub, engine bucket/tub/bracket and outer body shell bracket holder. The material are mostly high density composite nylon instead of traditional steel and aluminum sheets. These material is impact resistant, vibration absorbent, light weight, temperature resistant and crash safe.
Composite Lexan OPLEC shell (Organic Passive Light Emitting Cell)…as discussed previously.
Overall XAVAGE structures are made entirely from enhanced hardened plastic material fused partially with molecular steel giving it more lightweight, rigid and crash safe material. For another reason its built to protect the passenger and critical components from broken debris extreme shocks and hard impact if crashed do occur. The material theory is very much like a rubber ball, no matter how much you bash the ball it will remain its original round shape and bounce back the inertial impact. XAVAGE is the rubber ball with passenger tuck safely inside.
XAVAGE incorporate several new technologies unlike its older parent model. This includes.
OHID headlights and OCDLED rear lights:
OHID (Organic Hi-Density headlights) and OHLED (Organic Controlled Density LED rear lights) is a new technology which uses flexible and low charged high luminance thin light panel made from organic cell structure (cob webbed cells). These panel are shock resistant and consume low electric current yet it produce high output of light just similarly used on LCD and Plasma panel.
Multi-channel Bernoulli Ventilation System:
Unlike is old parent the NEMIXIS and X3-SIXTY, XAVAGE have built in “Air Buoyancy Chassis” which allow air to circulate full 360 degree range around the chassis for few cycle before exit out to rear end air exhaust port. This feature helps to cool the chassis and components in the car and also allow natural hydraulic cushion. The Multi-Channel Bernoulli Ventilation System which located 2x on the front + 2x on the sides help to gulp massive air by force into the chassis and tunnel the air into several channel for above purpose. Other than “Air Buoyancy” feature other use of tunneled air includes auto deflation control of tire pressure, suspension shock pressure, engine turbo compression, pneumatic pressure discharge, force combustion discharge, inner down-force system between wheels, power regeneration via air turbine for power charging, air pressure refill for hybrid engine module for kinetic propulsion, artificial cockpit and engine coolanrt coolant and pressure balance between inner and outer body wall.
XAVAGE uses hybrid engine technology that runs 50/50 propulsion from fossil fuel energy and electric under single engine block yet modular in mechanism.
Fuel powered module:
As usually NEMIXIS share same “X12” engine spec as her parents the NEMIXIS and X3-SIXTY where piston configuration remain in “X” push layout for complete 360 degree equal torque for every drive shaft turns per- revolution. 4 lines of piston in partitioned in to 4 in every 360-degree distribution where each lines have each line consist of 3 piston (3 piston x 4 lines) = 12 piston. These configuration taking advantages over standard “V” overhead engine, Boxter engine horizontal push and Rotary engine layout. “X12” allow high acceleration and lower fuel injection to combust per-joule,
Consist of twin brushless motor powered by high capacity rechargeable lithium ferum (Li-Fe) battery. The motor controlled by computer programmed ESC (Electronic Speed Controller) to propel the motor according to required rpm. The motor connected to variable ratio gear case and then interfaced to main engine’s main 1 way turn spur gear. As the spur gear turned by electric powered brushless motor the spur will auto disengage from fuel powered engine drive crank shaft to reduce mechanical load from the engine, which the electric powered system will take over the full transmission drives.
Kinetic module is a mechanism, which is powered by stored energy produced by kinetic output such as air pressure and heat source. XAVAGE carries 4x120 liters of air tank which store compressed air collected from various vents around its chassis. Each tanks can handle 50 bars of barometric air pressure, Collected air will be used as air compression source to push turn and propels 4x turbo-turbine units on X12 fuel engine, 2x turbine pinion gear on both electric motors and 1x twin turbine built-in main spur gear. To summarize that the air are mainly to boost all the cycle of the gear reducing the burden of acceleration thus save both fuel and electric cell. The heat kinetic are used to heat up the tank thus increasing the pressure of the air before gush into output mechanism. The heat source comes from fuel engine, electric motor and external environment via Radiator system.
Composite Lexan OPLEC shell (Organic Passive Light Emitting Cell):
For the first time XAVAGE uses Composite Lexan OPLEC shell which have advantages over traditional stainless steel and aluminum sheet for body panel built.
Composite Lexan have been long used on hobbyist Radio Control models since 1980’s made up from hard, shiny yet high impact resistance material which allow any impact on the surface to be rebound and keeping the surface structure maintain to original form, very similar concept to Memory Plastic. These material is lighter and easy to mold.
OPLEC (Organic Passive Light Emitting Cell) is layered behind Composite Lexan surface provide programmable surface color like an Organic LCD screen. However this surface does not illuminates like any OLED screen type surface because its emits passive lights that doesn’t glow but only shows solid paint like color. This characteristic of OPLEC fusion Composite Lexan allows user to customized the color on the XAVAGE based on their preference allow forms of artistic display of color and images shown on the car like paint canvas. Each panel of Composite Lexan OPLEC are connected via central CPU via HOTSWAP cable to complete the grid of body canvas.
XAVAGE is equipped with GYRO system which allow the car to run stable during speeding, drift and cornering. The gyro components links to several components in the car to control the overall stability which includes:
Front and rear differential
Control the differential slips among 4 wheels by distribution proper traction needed during cornering, drift and an event when traction error and body instability detected. Note that XAVAGE have a full time 4WD transmission.
Partially control the steering at micro level where as if GYRO needed to recover the car to proper lines if the driver swerve too much on the steering especially in wet condition and loose gripped surface such as sand, dirt, muddy trails and road full patches of holes. However in situation where the driver (dominant) control the steering the Gyro effort are only to control under steer and over steer error where it will try to synchronized the differential slips with the driver steering style to minimized stability error.
GYRO level of control is very much similar to “driver steering” detection protocol as mentioned before on steer part If any anomalies detected such as under steer/over steer braking or side ways braking the GYRO will engage ABS control plus will also control other components in the car which links to GYRO to synchronized with ABS system demand.
Mechanical Down-force System (MDS)
XAVAGE have special down force system built within the undercarriage between front and rear wheels where air sucked from the “Multi-channel Bernoulli Ventilation System” are flow though down force airfoil fins to create down ward draft which pushes the wheel downwards for forced traction. In relation to GYRO, this control the down force system where needed if it detects error in level of horizontal and vertical G-force distribution as well as level of CG (Center of Gravity) on the chassis. The air diffuser however is fixed and independent of Gyro control.
The GYRO however does not cater 100% desirable handling as driver wanted so it can actually be enabled and disabled manually by the driver (person). When GYRO is active it offer several option where the driver can selection according to his or her driving preferences, these are:
Cruise/Normal mode (default): For normal car handling.
Expert Touring/Racing mode: Racing and high speed touring handling.
Drift mode: Drift handling. More differential gear control involve.
Drag mode: Straight line handling with high anti-sideway control. Very heavy use of down force mechanism.
Off-road: For off-road handling.
Preset/Learning mode: GYRO in learning mode (no control), feed and learning from drivers output, allow personalized handling from different driver’s handling style. When Learning mode is completed the GYRO can actually cater several handling mode to different driver according to their individual driving style.
FAIL SAFE mode: However if GYRO fail to function due to EMP distortion, damages or other accident which cause Gyro to shutdown a fail safe mechanism will be activated automatically and independently via mechanical system. The fail safe mode will reset all the configuration inside the car including differential, braking, engine, steering, suspension, hydraulic aerofoil and others inside XAVAGE back to normal model without causing disruption to XAVAGE normal driving ability.
