Xray have introduced the 2017 variant of their popular XB8E platform. The buggy makes use of a lot of updates already part of the nitro XB8, such as redesigned, larger volume front, centre and rear differentials for improved performance and consistency during longer runs, trailing axle front steering spindles increase traction and handling while the improved Ackermann geometry and graphite material servo saver optimise the buggy’s steering response. Other changes in the steering compartment include a composite front upper deck, redesigned steering pivot balls do away with unwanted wheel locking and narrow profile front steering arms move the front wheels forward for better jump take off and landing. The package is rounded out by longer rear suspension arms and shorter suspension mounts for an updated rear end geometry that will help generate more traction and make for improved handling characteristics.
