Xray T4 2014 electric touring car kit

Xray T4 2014 electric touring car kit

Xray introduce the T4 2014 electric touring car kit. Still called the T4 platform the 2014 spec kit features a range of new and updated parts that heavily separates the ’14 version from the previous kit. First up is the 89mm wide 2.2mm carbon fibre chassis that comes with pre-drilled holes for optional parts such as chassis weights, motor guard, battery holder or battery straps. Also part of the newly designed chassis is an updated motor and layshaft mount – both separate parts now to eliminate unwanted tweak. The layshafts mounts are of a captured design to allow the layshaft bearings to stay in place even with the top deck screws removed. The chassis flex is now additionally adjustable using a sturdy aluminium post that can be screwed onto the motor mount.

New for the 2014 T4 are the updated suspension mounts that are now fixed onto the chassis rather than being a part of the bulkhead assembly. Included with the kit come FR single and RF two-piece blocks with additional split or one-piece blocks being available as option parts in order to fine-tune steering and grip characteristics. Either way the caster, toe, kick-up and track width settings are now adjustable using plastic inserts for the aluminium suspension blocks. Another new feature on the ’14 car are the SFA (Suspension Flex Adjustment) arms whose flex characteristics are adjustable using optional carbon fibre plates – a feature formally known to 1/8th off-road buggies.
