T-Works XB4’15 floating servo mount

T-Works XB4'15 floating servo mount

T-Works have a new floating steering servo mount for the Xray XB4’15 buggy available. Doing away with the need to run the standard parts that connect the servo with both the chassis and the side pod the mount makes for a more equal left-to-right chassis flex as it utilises the “floating”, centre-mounted design most of today’s touring cars use. Included in the set comes an aluminium centre mount, an outer aluminium post and a sturdy carbon fibre upper plate.

Reflex Racing RSD touring car spring sets

Coming from Reflex Racing and made for a range of touring cars including the Xray T4 are several shock spring sets. First up is the 20mm Progressive Spring set for the Xray T4. Progressive springs generate more traction than linear springs due to the dynamic of the compression of the spring. Early in the compression, when the spring needs to be soft to provide bite, they are softer and later in the roll, they stiffen up to provide more exit and on power traction and steering. The set comprises of three different rates of Yellow 13.0-14.0 lb/in, Gold 14.0-15.0 lb/in and Silver 15.0-16.0 lb/in.
