New from Xray and made for the X1 formula car are a 2.0mm carbon fibre chassis and rear pod lower plate. Using a thinner material compared to the kit parts results in increased chassis flex and thus improved traction and side bite on low-grip surfaces. Both parts are available separately and they are direct replacements for the standard pieces.

Reflex Racing have introduced two new option parts for the Xray T4’15 in the form of the RX4-15 aluminium chassis and a carbon fibre servo mount bracket. Starting with the chassis, it is made out of machined 7075-T6 aluminium and it comes anodised a light shade of gray with silver chamfered edges to give the chassis a high-quality finish and premium look with the textured finish looks similar to a diamond dremel cut off wheel finish. The shape profiles for the RX4 -15 have been developed over the past year with a focus to provide your car a more consistent feel and less tyre overheating over a run. The design takes flex away from the bulkheads and moves it towards the centre of the car which results in a more stable car that is easier to drive at high speed.

Coming from Spec-R and made for the Xray T4-15 touring car is a floating steering conversion kit. Making use of a redesigned upper servo mount plate and new orange anodised aluminium steering posts the set removes the kit’s steering assembly from the main chassis in favour of a “floating” design. The result is a more freely flexing chassis and less influence of the chassis’ flex on the steering angle during cornering. The conversion bolts right onto the standard inner servo mount and it is available now.
