Xray XT2 2018 1/10th 2WD stadium truck kit

Xray have introduced the 2018 variant of their EOS and US Championship winning XT2 1/10th 2WD stadium truck kit. The main difference from the previous version is the inclusion of both carpet and dirt-specific gearbox setups in the kit, allowing to built the truck for high and low grip conditions right out of the box. Included are both laydown and standup gearboxes, a gear differential for high-grip and a ball diff for low-grip surfaces, as well as hard and medium compound suspension plastics, carbon and composite rear shock towers, and also two battery brace setup, upper brace mounts and a composite gear cover. Also part of the updated package is a new, short front chassis brace that allows to mount graphite chassis side guards to adjust chassis flex and an updated outer steering link mount increases reliability. The kit is rounded out by new lower shock absorber bushings for more precise shaft movement, new shock O-rings for better sealing and shock performance as well as new suspension pin washers that prevent the pivot shafts from moving. The kit will hit stores very soon.
