Xray T4'15 graphite ARS rear A-arm

Made for the use with ARS converted T4’15 cars is this graphite-reinforced rear suspension arm. Offering the same geometry and 1-hole specification as the standard kit arm, the special graphite compound makes for improved rigidity, making the arm ideal for the use in high ambient temperatures or when running on high-bite surfaces. Additionally the arm, that is usable on the left and right hand side of the car, improves traction and stability in normal grip conditions too.

Hobbywing have announced the signing of US racer Loran Whiting to their team. Loran is an avid nitro onroad racer with a busy racing schedule that included the European-based ENS series and the recent IFMAR Worlds in Thailand and for the 2015 season she will be increasing her program to include more electric racing following a season of electric touring car and 2WD buggy appearances. Using Hobbywing products Loran will also race in the 4WD buggy class in the coming season. She had the following to say:

I am very excited to join the Hobbywing team and am thankful for the opportunity to help build the Hobbywing brand. I have been racing for 12 years and have recently started to work on stepping up my electric racing. In 2014, I ran more modified electric touring car and 2WD buggy, with an expansion into 4WD buggy and other classes coming in the next year. I can’t wait to expand my knowledge alongside Hobbywing in the US and internationally. I am really looking forward to the 2015 onroad and offroad season.
