Xray T4’15 graphite ARS rear A-arm

Xray T4'15 graphite ARS rear A-arm

Made for the use with ARS converted T4’15 cars is this graphite-reinforced rear suspension arm. Offering the same geometry and 1-hole specification as the standard kit arm, the special graphite compound makes for improved rigidity, making the arm ideal for the use in high ambient temperatures or when running on high-bite surfaces. Additionally the arm, that is usable on the left and right hand side of the car, improves traction and stability in normal grip conditions too.

Xray XB8 2015 – Coming soon

Xray XB8 2015 – Coming soon

Xray announce the soon release of the 2015 spec XB8 1/8th nitro off-road buggy. With the 2014 version being well received within the nitro buggy community Xray had a hard time to improve the successful platform. This is what Juraj Hudy has to say on what is to expect with next year’s model:

I am very happy that during the year majority of the feedback and comments for XB8 were very positive and as such we have had a very difficult task with the 2015 improvements as there was not much to improve. The 2015 version of the XB8 will be the next evolution of the platform featuring a dozen of refinements and improvements making the car even stronger and better performing.

Smokem T4’15 IIX carbon fibre chassis

Smokem T4'15 IIX carbon fibre chassis

With the recent release of the updated Xray T4’15, Smokem Racing has now released an updated IIX chassis for this popular electric touring car. Made from their proprietary Pro-Weave 100 percent carbon fibre construction, which is stiffer than a conventional weave, yet softer than a quasi weave, the 2.0mm thick chassis material allows to lower the overall centre of gravity for optimum response and corner speed. Flex is also improved to deliver greater traction over a wider range of track conditions and temperatures. The chassis’ contoured shape was developed through an extensive prototype and testing phase, the result of which saw significant gains in high speed steering and transitional response. Furthermore, the differential and spur gear openings are closed off to further enhance flex characteristics and improve airflow on the bottom of the chassis.
