Xray XB4 12 degree aluminium C-hubs

Xray introduce 12 degree aluminium C-hubs for the XB4 line of off-road buggies. The parts are machined from high-quality 7075 alloy material, they come black anodised and laser-etched for easy identification. The pre-set 12 degree castor setting is ideal for high traction conditions, it increases corner exit steering while the aluminium material makes for less flex and added overall rigidity.
