Coming from Xray and made for the T4 2018 touring car is a brass motor mount plate. Designed to replace the standard aluminium item with a heavier part, the plate is cut from high-quality brass and it weighs in at 5.6g. It offers T4’18-specific mounting positions and due to sitting on the centreline of the chassis it does not incidence flex while adding weight in one of the most central parts of the car.
Xray have introduced their new C=2.0-2.5 progressive centre shock spring for 1/10th and 1/12th pan cars such as the X10 and X12. Marked with two dots the spring complements the softer one dot C=1.4-1.9 offering with the new, stiffer one making for increased traction, off-power steering and steering response.
Xray have introduced an aluminium flex chassis for the X10’18 200mm pan car kit. Machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium and coming black anodised and with machined edge details, the 2mm chassis was developed to improve traction and car control on low, medium and high-bite tracks. Additional machining makes the chassis more flexible that full-face alloy main plates while also saving some weight. In addition to the chassis, Xray offers a suitable 2mm lower pod plate.
Xray have announced the soon release of the X1 2018 1/10th formula kit. The highly popular car is understood to having received some subtle updates and all information and images should become available very soon.

The ultra-flexible spacers are made from 0.4mm material and they can be used alone or stacked to heights of up to 1.2mm in order to lift the top deck to the preferred height. Doing so is understood to ultrafine-tune the flex characteristics of the car. The pack includes eight spacers and it is available soon.
Xray have announced aluminium ball bearing hubs for the T4 series of touring cars. Machined from 7075-T6 aluminium and coming orange anodised the bearing cams are a direct replacement for the standard composite parts.

Xray have introduced the 2018 edition of their 2016/17 EOS winning XB4 1/10th 4WD buggy kit. The car, that also is reigning IFMAR World Champion, EFRA European as well as US Champion, received some subtle updates to better cope with the rigours of today’s ultra-competitive Modified racing. First up is a redesigned chassis that accommodates a new, lower motor mount to lower the overall centre of gravity. The corresponding centre bulkhead lowers the position of the centre drivetrain for higher corner speeds especially on high-bite surfaces while the updated side guards add to the all-new low CG setup. In the suspension compartment, improved lower bushings for the shock absorbers allow for smoother and more precise shock shaft movement. The 2018 kit is rounded out by updated front and rear differential crown gears whose greater precision leads to quieter operation and increased reliability.
