Exotek release new XB2 option parts

Exotek have announced the release of two new option parts for the Xray XB2 platform in the form of a LiPo cups and plate set as well as the steel axle Puck conversion. Starting with the LiPo battery mounting set, the kit makes for an ultra adjustable and quick weight tuning battery tray for all XB2s with laydown gearbox. With the included link brace, the water fall is removed on the buggy so that drivers are able to mount the battery even further back. The battery sitting back and the added rear flex created by the new link opens up the XB2 laydown to perform even better on dirt tracks without the need to add  a lot of weight. Thanks to the design it is also possible to quickly fine-tune the weight bias by shifting the battery forth and back without changing the link length as all changes are handles by the side LiPo adjustment cups. The kit includes all needed hardware including alloy posts, ball ends, a titanium turnbuckle and hardware.
