Radtec T4 aluminium centre steering mount

Radtec T4 aluminium centre steering mount

Coming from Radtec for Xray’s T4 touring car is an aluminium centre steering mount. The brace connects the steering system and the carbon fibre upper deck to adjust the front chassis flex and thus the steering feeling. The part is CNC-machined from 7075-T6 aluminium and comes orange anodised to match the chassis’s other alloy parts.

Xray T4’15 electric touring car kit

Xray T4'15 electric touring car kit

Following our exclusive Xray T4’15 presentation in the form of an in-depth interview with Martin Hudy and hot on the heels of our article about the making of the 2015 specification car we now have the official release available. The car is based around an all-new main 2.2mm thick chassis that is 3mm narrower for now being only 86mm wide. The chassis was designed to accommodate the new motor mount as well as the included ARS rear suspension system – two of the most significant changes with the 2015 model.

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.

Xray XB8 rib-less chassis side guards

Xray XB8 rib-less chassis side guards

Made for the XB8 nitro off-road buggy are these new chassis side guards without reinforcement ribs. The composite parts offer more twist resulting in improved chassis flex when needed. Due to their design they still offer exceptional chassis protection and they work with the XB8, XB8E and XB9 V2 hardcoated 3mm aluminium chassis.

Avid carbon fibre touring car option parts

Avid carbon fibre touring car option parts

Avid have a range of optional carbon fibre parts for the Xray T4, Team Associated TC6.2 and the Yokomo BD7 available. The line-up includes 2.0mm carbon chassis, 2.0mm and 1.5mm top decks, as well as 2.0mm shock towers with all parts being direct replacements for the kit items. The chassis allow to lower the centre of gravity and the roll centres more than stock and they are specially cut to ensure equal twisting resistance side to side. Also the chassis shape is smoothed to keep droop screw platforms from digging into the track during hard cornering. Different thickness top decks help to fine-tune the chassis stiffness to adapt the cars for both carpet and asphalt racing. The shock tower are available separately for the front and rear and as combo sets including both the front and rear shock stay.
