Xray release the GTX8 & GTX8E’23

Xray have released details on their all new for 2023 GTX8 platform. The new GT nitro and EP chassis feature an all-new aluminium bulkhead framework which increases reliability, strength and allows for much greater airflow to cool the drivetrain as well as more convenient maintenance from the super easy diff access. Front & rear aluminium diff pinion adapters maintain proper gear mesh and allow for significantly improved cooling of the pinion gear bearings aluminium eccentric bushings for the rear differential allow for a new diff height tuning adjustment. A redesigned chassis plate to match the aluminium bulkheads features extra cutouts around the engine and rear driveline to promote airflow and increased cooling of the drivetrain. The front & rear shock towers now feature a second row of shock absorber positions for super fine adjustments. Additionally, to accommodate the latest low profile racing bodies, the rear shock tower features an additional wing mounting position to place the wing mount as low as possible. A redesigned front upper carbon top deck reinforces the new aluminium bulkheads and chassis. In the drivetrain, the all-new high-acceleration clutch bell features an independent clutch housing with a separate one-piece machined 2-gear 14/18T pinion gear module. New diff crown gears and pinion gears use specially designed profile of the 46T and 13T gears for a perfectly matched engagement that ensures smoother operation, less drag and significantly longer lifespan. All this plus a a whole lot of other updates.
