Grainger wins Schumacher BTCC Rd2

Chris Grainger took round two of the Schumacher BTCC at the magnificent Cotswold track over the weekend. The modified class was dominated by the MI4 of Grainger who took FTD and the overall victory, the day was made sweeter for Grainger’s team as the modified class saw three of the Schumacher cars on the podium, Colin Price was second with John Pape third. In Pro Stock it was another Schumacher 1-2-3, James Hart took both legs of the A final ahead of Lee Price and Mark Musgrove, while in the stock class Zak Finlay won ahead of fellow Schumacher driver Scott Hauser. Many drivers were using the BTCC as warm up for the BRCA national in three weeks time, and with the event held in scorching hot conditions, it did cause a few problems with overheating motors and ESC’c. Drivers may be hoping for slightly cooler conditions in a few weeks time.

Xray XB808 composite 8 & 10-hole shock pistons

Xray XB808 composite 8 & 10-hole shock pistons

Xray have released a set of composite molded 8 and 10-hole shock pistons for two shock absorbers. 8-hole pistons are available with 2 different-sized holes (1.2 and 1.3mm) for changing damping (2 per piston). 10-hole pistons are available with 1.1mm holes and these pistons are conical for smoother damping. Big-bore pistons are manufactured from well-proven specially-formulated composite material to provide smoother action and durability. The well-proven molding production process is used to ensure perfect roundness of the pistons after production, so that the pistons will move perfectly inside the shock bodies for identical shock action in all four shocks.
