Xray XB2D’19 2WD dirt-spec off-road buggy kit

Xray have introduced the 2019 variant of their popular XB2D 2WD buggy for low to medium grip traction conditions. The Dirt Edition kit includes several new parts and also optionals from stock to make it an all-in-one solution for a variety for track conditions. The buggy utilises a new short wheelbase chassis with updated machining to optimise the flex characteristics with the most important feature being the two different gearbox layouts. Included in the kit is a mid motor gearbox with a high-placed (stand-up) idler gear and slipper for improved traction on low-bite surfaces while the front motor (laydown) transmission is ideal for medium-traction racing conditions. To extract the maximum traction the stand-up gearbox is combined with the included composite shock tower while the laydown gearbox utilises carbon fibre rear tower. Dedicated idler gears, waterfalls, camber link plates, motor mounts, gear covers and battery mounts round out the all-in-one package. Also part of the 2019 package are an ultra-smooth ball differential, new multi-functional rear uprights, longer rear arms, updated rear driveshafts with 2.5mm pins, a 2-pad slipper clutch as well as the all-new Alpha 2 body shell. Hard composite steering blocks, front suspension arms, and upper deck help to find grip in lower traction conditions without sacrificing precision on grippier tracks. The kit will hit stores by the time you are reading this.
