Xray have only some small updates to their gas on road cars which is new here at the fair. The NT1 2012 spec car features a new revised radio plate with a different front to help give more flex and in turn give more steering. The other update is to the chassis plate which has been machined below the engine blocks and engine to lower the engine to help improve the car’s centre of gravity.
For the RX8 2012 spec the big improvement is the new clutch which sees the location of the flyweight tapers from the flywheel to the back for the clutch shoe plate. The new design is lighter than the previous version and along with the use of conical washers instead of a spring for consistent settings, gives the clutch more punch. The car too features the updated radio plate for increased flex and steering as well as a new chassis plate which is narrower towards the front and features larger cutouts for more flex and steering as well as more traction.
Another change to the chassis plate is they have made the engine mount holes slight larger than the screw needs allowing the mounting of a wider range of engines while allowing the user to better adjust the play between the clutch and gearbox. The final change on the car is to the suspension arms which are shorter on the front to allow a narrower track width while the lower front and rear wishbones are fitted with a carbon plate that allows for a new lower shock mounting position.
