Coming from Techra and made for the Xray T4 series of touring cars is a battery mount system. Utilising machined, L-shaped 7075-T6 aluminium brackets the mounts are designed to minimise chassis tweak while giving the option of using the supplied hook and loop strap or optional fibre-reinforced tape to hold down the battery pack. The brackets sport a 2-tone black and orange finish and included in the set is also suitable mounting hardware.
T-Works have introduced a ball end set for the Xray T4’17 touring car kit. Coming with a friction-reducing titanium-nitride coating the ball ends not only improve overall suspension performance but the gold-colour finish also adds visual impact. The 18-piece set includes four different ball end sizes and it is a direct replacement for the kit’s ball ends.
Coming from Xray and made for the RX8 series of 1/8th on-road cars is a new 2.0mm front anti-roll bar wire. The thinnest in the range, the 2.0mm variant is an addition to the already existing 2.2mm to 2.8mm variants. The item is made from high-quality spring steel and it sports laser-etched markings for easy identification.
Coming from X Factory’s Infinity line of option parts are new carbon fibre accessories for the XB2 and XT2 off-road kits. First up is a front carbon fibre shock tower for the XB2. Cut from 4mm sheet material the part is a direct replacement with unchanged geometry and fitting both the dirt and carpet spec kits. Also new but fitting the carpet edition XB2’s only is a 4mm rear shock tower that replaces the standard 3.5mm part. A dirt spec shock tower will become available soon.
Hiro Seiko have introduced a range of new lightweight screw sets for various kits including the latest Team Associated and Xray vehicles. Available for the Team Associated B64D is an all-titanium kit, while AE’s RC10F6 formula car can be equipped with an all-titanium or mixed titanium and blue aluminium fastener kit. Also new are all-titanium Xray RX8 2017 and XB8 2017 screw sets, as well as all-titanium or mixed titanium/alloy NT1 2017 sets. The range is rounded out by an all-titanium screw kit for the BZ 2017 Evo mini-size touring car.
Coming from Xray and made for the T4 series of touring cars is a wide front bumper cut from extra hard foam. Offering the same dimensions as the standard #301227 bumper the hard foam used will make for added chassis protection while offering a low weight at the same time.
Coming from Revolution Design Racing Products is the Ultra Servo Mount for Xray’s XB2 platform buggies and trucks. Designed to replace the kit’s plastic servo mounting brackets and by using machined aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium and machined carbon fibre, the assembly greatly improves the overall rigidity of the servo area which results in a more precise steering feeling especially when running on high-bite surfaces. The alloy mounts sport RDRP’s new signature finned look for a low weight while the heavily machined carbon fibre upper brace further adds to the all-out factory looks. The servo mount is available in black and orange anodising and it fits the XB2 and XT2 series kits.
Coming from Revolution Design Racing Products are new 26 degree front bulkheads for the Xray XB2 and XT2 kits. The overall design and material used greatly improves durability while also giving a more solid base for the inner hinge pins and additional weight, resulting in improved lower A-arm support on high-bite to very high-bite tracks. The bulkheads sport laser-etched markings for easy identification with the brass item weighing in at 45g while the alloy item only is a fraction heavier than the standard composite part. As with all of RDRP’s Xray-specific alloy parts the bulkheads are available in either orange or black anodising.
