Xray RX8E’23 1/8th EP onroad chassis

Following last week’s release of the new for 2023 RX8, Xray have today unveiled the EP version of the same car, the RX8E’23. The car is a major update on its predecessor with only a few parts carrying over from the old car. The all new chassis has narrowed front suspension pivots to increase stability & traction, more chassis cutouts to create greater flex in desired locations and additional chassis cutouts to improve engine cooling. Hard composite suspension arms combined with the improved central chassis flex keeps the suspension geometry stable while the flex is transferred through chassis and radio plate to maintain traction. Narrower front suspension holders help improve geometry, while longer lower suspension arm shock mounting holders compensate for the narrower suspension holders to maintain the ideal shock absorber geometry. Lower down-stop mounting holders without the eccentric geometry make the car easier to set suspension down-stops. There is all-new front aluminium bulkheads with a lowered design and new front upper clamps that feature integrated upper shock mounting positions, eliminating the need for a separate front shock tower. An innovative front upper shock mounting directly on the upper clamps adjusted via shims provide more flex on front suspension. A new front upper bulkhead brace for easy flex adjustments. More stability with the brace installed, more traction and steering when the brace is removed. There is an ultra-compact and super lightweight receiver box that moves the weight lower and closer to the centre of the chassis. Plus many more changes that make up the all new RX8E.
