Xray introduce new optional brake discs for the XB8 1/8th scale buggy. Being of a ventilated design the precision-ground and heat-treated discs are light of weight and they offer vibration-free operation. At the same time they minimise brake pad wear and disc glazing for consistent braking performance even on high speed tracks and during long mains.

Smokem Racing LCG touring car chassis

Smokem Racing LCG touring car chassis

Smokem Racing has introduced its range of LCG low centre of gravity chassis for three of the most popular electric tourers on the market as are the Tamiya TRF418, Xray T4’14, Yokomo BD7 2014 and BD7. Made from premium 7075-T6 aluminium for a maximum in durability, Smokem’s LCG chassis feature strategically located cutouts for improved flex characteristics and reduced weight compared to other alloy chassis on the market. At 2mm thick and weighing approximately 25-30g more than the IIX-series of chassis, the LCG chassis will substantially lower the centre of gravity of the tourer and they are ideal for higher traction carpet and asphalt surfaces where traction rolling is a problem. Using the LCG chassis in these conditions will make the car more stable, easier to drive and less “edgy”. The extra flex created by the strategically placed cutouts means that the LCG chassis will also work well on medium traction conditions and with a wider setup window.
