Reedy’s new 5700mAh 65C SP LiPo is intended for use in vehicles that require saddle packs or vehicles where the use of saddle packs creates a handling advantage. Serious racers will appreciate the generous run time and the raw power available on tap. Thanks to its relatively light weight, racers are able to utilize additional ballast to alter their vehicle’s weight distribution to improve handling. A durable hard case helps prevent damage while 4mm socket connectors reduce resistance and allow for short and clean wiring.

In a commendable display of customer service, Xray will be giving out this upgrade package to current XB4 owners for free. “Despite the long term performance and durability testing to which the Xray XB4 was subjected by the factory and R&D team, several XB4 customers have reported minor issues in crash situations. Xray has been well known to fully stand behind their products and is known for providing first class customer service and support. Even though the reported issues have affected only a small portion of XB4 owners, Xray felt that it would be prudent to provide a free XB4 upgrade package to all XB4 owners through the shop where the kit was originally purchased.”
