Xray XB4 extra-stiff aluminium chassis

Xray XB4 extra-stiff aluminium chassis

Xray have an extra-stiff aluminium chassis for the XB4 1/10th scale buggy available. Made from 3mm Swiss 7075-T6 material and coming hard anodised the chassis increases corner speed and stability especially on high traction surfaces and it can be used without the buggy’s graphite front and rear top decks. The chassis is still light of weight thanks to strategically machining in low-stress areas and optional graphite body mounts are recommended for easy body mounting.

Francesco Martini re-signs with Xray

Xray has announced that the multiple Italian Champion Francesco Martini has re-signed with the Slovakian manufacturer for the 2015 season. Francesco is an extremely dedicated touring car racer and an important member of Xray’s R&D team as he was involved in the development of the T4 platform as well of the X1 formula car. Francesco says:

I am very happy and thankful to continue my collaboration with the Hudy family. In the last year I was able to work directly on a new X1 platform development and this has been for me the greatest RC experience. Being direct involved in the entire development process from design stage through very long and exhaustive prototype testing until final production has been a great journey that I have enjoyed and that allowed me to experience how passionate, professional and dedicated everyone at Xray is with Martin in the lead. With my involvement into R&D I am fully motivated to continue our work on the further development and I am very honored to be part of this great team. I am available to anyone with any questions concerning the X1 so do not hesitate to see me.

EX Lab T4’15 floating steering servo holder

EX Lab T4'15 floating steering servo holder

EX Lab has released a first rendering of what appears to be a floating steering and servo holder for the Xray T4. Making use of a redesigned upper servo holder plate that takes the steering bellcrank posts the part removes the steering assembly from the lower chassis plate to minimise the influence of the twisting chassis on the steering angle during hard cornering. The chassis will also flex more with the steering posts removed from the lower plate which can be beneficial in certain conditions while an additional post allows to connect the servo holder plate with the top deck in case a stiffer front end is required. The set, that from what is understood is designed to work with the T4’s standard inner and out aluminium servo mounts, will become available in mid-March.
