Xray XB4 2WD buggy kit

Xray XB4 2WD buggy kit

Seen as teaser image some days ago Xray now introduce the XB4 2WD mid-motor buggy kit. Based on the European Championship winning XB4 4WD buggy the 2WD kit makes use of around 95 percent of the parts of the all-wheel kit including the main chassis frame and the rear end. The only real difference compared to the XB4 are the aluminium backbone chassis that sports increased kick-up to make for a 2WD-ish castor angle and the front bulkhead including shock tower. The chassis weight distribution with a saddle pack battery mounted in the rear of the chassis combined with front-located electronics and motor is what appears to be the holy grail for 2WD buggy when run on medium to high grip clay, astro and carpet surfaces.

The buggy makes use of Xray’s very own Multi-Flex Technology that allows to adjust the chassis stiffness to your liking to adapt the car to a wide range of track conditions while the I.S.S. suspension mounts with eccentric inserts make for swift toe, kick-up and anti-squat adjustments. The kit also features Xray’s new SFA graphite stiffeners technology to alter the flex characteristics of the wishbones. Other setup possibilities include widely adjustable wheelbase settings, height adjustable steering blocks via different thickness bushings and rear arm length adjustments using inner or outer holes for the outer hinge pins. On top of that the position of the rear shock towers can be altered to run then in front or behind the wishbones in order to adapt the car to low or high traction surfaces.

Part of the kit are also aluminium big bore shock absorbers, a heavy duty slipper clutch and a rear gear differential with a ball differential being available as an option for medium-grip tracks. The kit is topped off by the new DMX cab forward body shell that provides maximum downforce.
