Spec-R XB4 aluminium wing mount & servo brackets

Spec-R XB4 aluminium wing mount & servo brackets

Spec-R soon have two new aluminium option parts for Xray’s XB4 4WD buggy available in the form of an aluminium wing mount and servo brackets. Starting with the wing mount, the part is CNC-machined from 7075 aluminium, comes black anodised and laser-etched with Spec-R logos. A carbon fibre mounting plate allows to place the wing in a forward and rearward position without the need to drill a second set of holes, while the plate also acts as a support plate prolonging the life of the high stressed plastic part. Also new are the 7075 aluminium servo mounting brackets. They come with a black anodising and allow for a more precise and durable servo mounting while also looking the part. The brackets come as pair and are a direct replacement for the stock plastic mounts.
