Xray 2013 spec RX8 1/8th scale chassis

Xray 2013 spec RX8 1/8th scale chassis

Xray have released details on their 2013 spec RX8 1/8th scale on road chassis. The car features a number of major changes, as well as some refinements, including the all new fuel tank with interior baffles for stable engine performance. Other new parts, and something that seems to be on all the latest Xray cars, is the all new low profile shocks and related lower shock towers. The new LP shocks were developed to lower the CG of the car in order to improve stability. With the new LP shocks the RX8 stays flatter, making it easier to drive in chicanes and more resistant to traction roll, letting you carry more speed through high traction sweepers. The other major change is the all-new reverse clutch set whose design provides smoother and faster acceleration, while increasing the lifetime of the clutch shoe.
