Not wasting any time, T-Works have introduced a whole host of new items for the newly released Xray X1 2017. New items include a set of 64-grade titanium ball ends, a complete titanium turnbuckle set, as well as a hybrid version, and a load of different screw sets. The screw sets include full titanium with the newly announced UFO head, gold plated steel screw set, a mix of titanium and 7075-T6 orange anodised screws and finally a complete set of orange anodised aluminium screws.
Xray have announce that top Austrian on-road racer René Kölbel has joined their factory team. René will be driving the X1 and T4 on-road platforms at major international races including ETS. A front runner and race winner at the popular Mibosport Cup, he had the following to say:
I would like to thank Xray for the given trust in me. I drive the T4 and I’m excited about the quality and functionality of Xray RC cars, therefore it was clear for me to join the Xray team in the formula class as well. Xray X1 is a very good car with a lot of potential. During the season I will participate at all major races including ETS, and of course, the National series as well. I will be available at the Austrian races to help to any Xray drivers, so do not hesitate to contact me with your questions.
New from Xray for the T4 comes this super smart fan mount designed specifically for the T4 platform. Able to accommodate popular fan sizes including 30mm and 40mm fans, the fan mount is installed on the bulkhead rather than the chassis to eliminate any tweak and to ensure no vibrations are transferred to the chassis.
Xray have released a first teaser for their forthcoming XB4 2017 4wd Buggy. No details are available yet but expect photos and information on the successor to the 2015/16 Euro Offroad Series winning buggy to surface shortly.
Xray have released complete details on the follow up to their ETS Championship winning X1 Formula car. The all-new and innovative feature of the F1 class is the fully-adjustable wire anti-roll bar. The anti-roll bar improves steering characteristics & precision, and makes the car easier to handle. The wobble-free anti-roll bar system is mounted to anti-roll bar holders which are mounted on the arm mount plate via bearings for extra-smooth movement and quick & easy changes and adjustment. The all-new upper & lower graphite arms were redesigned to fit and work with new wire anti-roll bar system while the all-new arm mount plate was redesigned to allow mounting of the new aluminium anti-roll bar holders. Other changes include an update chassis plate, a shorter big-bore shock absorber, a new shock spring collar, an updated central mount plate and a rear wing graphite mount.
Coming from Techra and made for the Xray T4 touring car are hard-coated aluminium front spool cups. The lightweight parts are machined from 7075-T6 aluminium and they scrub about 5g of weight compared to Xray’s optional spring steel cups while offering higher rigidity than the standard composite parts. Their hard-coated surface in combination with Techra’s delrin drive shaft caps make them very durable, although they are only recommended for stock racing.
Made for Xray’s T4 2017 and coming from T-Works is a hard front bumper. Cut from a special foam material and offering improved impact protection the part is a direct replacement for the standard kit bumper, offering improved resistance in hard crashes while being light of weight at the same time.
JConcepts’s popular 2WD buggy lower front wing series is now available for all popular 1/10th 2WD buggies on the market. The range includes sets for the Team Associated B5/B5M, B6/B6D, TLR 22 3.0, Yokomo YZ2, as well as the Xray XB2 and Kyosho RB6.6. All include tailor-designed front wing mounts made from injection-moulded and durable material as well as a V-angle front wing. The wing mount itself attaches with supplied hardware to the top deck on TLR, Yokomo, Xray and Kyosho vehicles while the Team Associated versions mount directly to the front shock tower. Cut lines are included for easy trimming while dimples are located on the wing itself to indicate where to mount to the front wing mount.
