Modify have introduced specially designed 5g chassis balance weights for Xray’s T4 series of touring cars. Made to use the chassis’ pre-drilled holes underneath the steering assembly, but also fitting other brand’s cars, the dumpbell-shaped weights are a snug fit and they come with suitable mounting hardware.
Xray have announced their new Xray Racing Series for the 2016/17 season. The events will be run in multiple countries and classes and all information about dates, rules and more will become available shortly.
Coming from JConcepts and made for the Xray XB2 buggies are the Aero front wings. Already available for a range of 2WD buggy the tailor-made wings help to fine-tune the buggy’s aerodynamic behaviour. The Aero front wing mounts in “clean air” and is quite easy to trim, use and test without sacrificing all important track time. Available in two widths, the driver can choose either the “narrow” for a lighter feel or “wide” for heavier down force. Each set includes two narrow or two wide wings.
Team EA Motorsports have introduced their Energy Absorbent touring car front bumpers. Offering a 6mm extended design the foam bumpers do away with the need to add material in order to better support the bodyshells and keeping them from dragging on the racing surface. In case a less forward position is desired, the specially designed foam is very easy to sand down to whatever distance is needed. The highly supportive are also very light, preserving excellent steering response compared to heavier parts. The bumper is currently available in three different configurations, solid, pre-cut with inserts, and cut-out, with the solid bumper giving the least amount of steering and the cut-out one being the most corner-hungry, and it was designed to fit the Xray T4 but it also is usable on Awesomatix, Team Associated TC7 and Gizmo cars with some minor trimming.
Xray is busy teasing their forthcoming 2017 kits with the latest being the ’17 edition of their popular T4 1/10th 4WD touring car. No details are known yet nor is an official release date but expect more information to surface shortly.
Exotek have introduced the Flite aluminium motor plate for the Xray XB2 Dirt Edition buggy. Machined from high-quality 7075 aluminium and coming black anodised and with silver chamfered edges the motor plate’s vented design allows to reduce motor and slipper temperatures while also looking the part. The extra machining also reduces weight and lowers the centre of gravity without weakening the critical motor mounting areas, making for solid motor mounting and gear mesh.
Trinity have introduced two new chassis protectors for the Team Associated B6 and Xray XB2. Coming in the Monster Horsepower design the stickers not only protect the chassis bottom from becoming damaged or excessively scratched on abrasive surfaces but they also let the car look cool in the pits or when upside down. The pre-cut decals are available from now on.
Xray have released a first teaser image for their forthcoming X12’17 1/12th scale pan car. With both the IFMAR Electric On-road World Championships and also the indoor season ahead the car will soon make a first official appearance and we bring you more details as soon as they surface.
