Xray XB8EC Chassis Flex Tech Tip

Xray XB8EC Chassis Flex Tech Tip

Xray have published a notification that they will start to only include the composite chassis braces in their XB8EC kits as it allows the chassis to flex more and give more traction, where the aluminium versions previously included made the chassis too stiff for most conditions.

Some XB8EC drivers who were used to the XB8TQ may feel that the chassis is softer, but please note that the XB8EC chassis is not softer but rather it is more flexible due to the use of composite braces both front and rear. The XB8TQ included both composite and aluminum braces and experience has shown us that most customers installed the aluminum braces; this made the XB8TQ chassis flex less and in most racing conditions where a more flexible chassis was required the XB8TQ did not have sufficient traction. For this reason XRAY decided to include only the composite braces in the XB8EC kit, which can be used in most standard racing conditions as they provide more chassis flex, making the car easier to drive.
