RedWorks from France have introduced new carbon fibre optionals for the Xray XT2 and XB4 kits. First up are front and rear shock towers for the XT2 truck. The parts are of an updated design that is both stronger and also cooler looking thanks to several machined sections and a heavy chamfer that ensures greater durability. The front and rear tower are available separately. Also new is a 2mm gearbox and suspension spacer for the XT2 and XB2 that raised both the gearbox and suspension which comes in handy especially when running with low ride heights and in high-grip conditions. Last but not least is a carbon fibre top plate for the XB4 4WD buggy that connects the front gearbox and the steering posts. Like the shock towers the top plate features heavy machining for looks and durability.
Redworks from France have introduced new carbon fibre optionals for the Xray XB2 and XB4 off-road buggies. First up is the L4 rear shock tower for the XB2, a low-profile variant for the use with pre-2018 rear shocks of the XB2 or XB4. The updated geometry offers less droop and a lower centre of gravity which can be beneficial in certain track conditions. Next up and also made for the XB2 is a flex battery hold down that allows for a softer chassis flex setting while doing away with the need to use battery foam spacers thanks to multiple battery stop positions. Another flex battery strap come for the XB4 4WD buggy – the updated design results in a softer chassis flex setting for improved drivability in a variety of conditions. Last but not least comes a small carbon fibre electronics mounting plate that ensures quick and easy mounting and removing of the buggy’s electronics. All parts are machined from high-quality carbon fibre and they are available now.
Available now from French brand Redworks are carbon fibre slipper plates for the Schumacher Cougar KC and KD 2WD buggies. They are machined from high-quality carbon fibre and offer a vented design that makes them both lightweight and more consistent than standard full face plates. In addition they offer self-cleaning capabilities and are more consistent. The plates come as pairs and they are direct replacements.
Redworkshop from France have introduced two under LiPo tuning weights that help to adjust the chassis roll by offering two different designs. At 2mm thickness the plates weigh in at 43g with the dual cutout variant making for a more centralised weight distribution while the single cutout version shifts the mass to the outer parts for increased chassis roll without the need to change roll centres or ride height. The weights are designed for the use with transversal battery layouts but they can also be used, without the chassis roll feature, with inline batteries too.
Coming from Redworkshop and made for the Team Associated B6 buggy is a steel weight kit. Designed to use the under-servo and under-electronics pockets already available on the standard B6 and B6D chassis, the under-servo plate adds about 23.5g of weight while the under-electronics plate weighs in at 35.9g including hardware. Using the plates adds weight to one of the lowest points of the chassis which can be beneficial in a range of track conditions.
