Xray GT8’22 1/8th scale nitro GT chassis

Xray have released their GT8’22 1/8th scale nitro GT chassis. Featuring a longer wheelbase chassis with updated layout, with the front and rear suspension holders now mounted directly to the chassis with new GT specific geometry. Aluminium spacers raise the front and rear diff heights for better drivetrain alignment and the front and rear gear boxes sport cooling cut outs for the differentials. A new rear diffusor helps increase stability at high speed while the front upper bumper brace matches to the front gearbox opening for improved diff cooling with the front lower bumper providing clearance for the new suspension mounts. Front and rear suspension arms in a softer materials that on the previous GTX and the front C-hubs sport 6° caster for improved steering characteristics. A 3-slot steering Ackermann graphite plate allows for more initial steering and more overall steering angle for the GT category with hard rear uprights giving improved stability and the graphite rear upright extensions give increased corner speed. The front and rear shock towers are much lower with new shock positions and roll centre locations and aluminium lower shock mount extensions improve the corner seed and stability in corners.
