Xray 4-Hole Composite Shock Pistons

Xray 4-Hole Composite Shock Pistons

Xray have released details of their new 4-hole large-bore shock pistons which have been designed specifically for use with the wider XRAY shock absorbers, that are sold for the XT8 and XB8 EC. The newly-redesigned pistons use a new production process to improve roundness, ensuring perfect piston movement in all four shocks and each of the pistons have four straight holes, in sizes of 1.3mm 1.4mm and 1.5mm, in every set. The 4-hole pistons with the same hole diameter have increased oil flow compared to pistons with fewer holes (for example, 2-hole pistons). This allows the use of thicker shock oil, which will allow for different damping characteristics.

HB Gumball tyres & D4 diff upgrade

Hot Bodies Gumball tyres

Hot Bodies have announced that they will be soon shipping these new pre glued tyres, called Gumballs, which have been designed to be used as control tyres for 30T, 27T and 23T motor classes. Made using a compound that is very durable, yet provides sufficient grip, the Gumballs come pre mounted, with insert, on these durable white disc wheels. Also new from Hot Bodies is the release of a diff upgrade set for the Cyclone D4, with the main change being the use of a 2.6mm screw in place of the 2.0mm version that was originally available. This extra thickness on the diameter of the screw increases the durability of the differential.
