Predator X11 Big Bore shocks

Predator X11 Big Bore shocks

Our mates over at oOple have the first information on the new ‘big bore’ shock absorbers from Team Extreme, manufacturers of the Predator X11 4WD electric buggy, who brought some of the first production examples to the recent Talywain BRCA National. Nathan Ralls has been testing the shocks behind closed doors for a while now, but has finally started to race the car in public – first time out at the recent South East regional, and a win for the new X11 driver with these new shocks. The new shock absorbers are the same length but Team Xtreme have maxxed out the diameter to the limits of what would fit within the existing range of springs.
