Xray XB8 zero rebound shock absorbers

Coming from Xray are their new zero rebound shock absorbers for the XB8 series of buggies. The dampers can be set to allow less rebound than standard shock absorbers, decreasing responsiveness and improving bump absorption on bumpy tracks. The design of the shock body and upper cap allows the installation of a ribbed shock membrane on the top of the shock body instead of the traditional installation into the upper cap. The installation of the ribbed membrane on the shock body allows excess oil to leak out, and along with a shock cap vent hole and adjusting screw allows the adjustment of the amount of air until the desired zero rebound is achieved. The lower shock assembly ensures that the shock rod will move very freely inside the shock body, while minimising oil leakage and keeping dirt out. Other features include double O-ring sealing, 3.5mm shock shafts as well as lower rubber boots to keep dust, dirt and moisture away from the shock shaft and seals. Available separately for the front and rear, the shocks include a complete set of pistons but not springs.
