Xray XB4 centre active differential

Xray have introduced their unique centre active differential for the XB4. This high-performance, adjustable gear differential vastly improves the buggy’s speed and handling characteristics. The special design of the internal components, using different angled segments, allows the diff gears to engage on-power to increase forward traction and stability to make the buggy faster and easier to drive. While a performance option for serious racers who want to gain an edge on superior speed and handling, it will also benefit any level of driver that wants a more predictable and easy-to-drive car in any racing conditions.

Revolution Design T6.2 body mount stiffener set

Stadium trucks are fun to drive and durable, not least because the body protects the parts that are exposed on a 2WD buggy. Of course, this comes at a price, and stadium trucks bodies usually don’t last as long as their little brothers. For Team Associated’s latest entry to the category, help has arrived in form of the Revolution Design T6.2 body mount stiffener set. Precisely machined carbon fibre stiffeners brace the body mounts against the impacts of involuntary tough landings, thus reducing stress on the polycarbonate body. As a side effect, body clips tend to stay in place much better, which aids to solve another regular issue of stadium trucks.

1up Racing LowPro UltraLite wing washers

Designed for off-road use, these new 1up Racing LowPro ultraLite wing washers feature a smooth, low-profile design without any cutouts that pick up dirt during less-than-perfect landings. The oversized 16mm outer diameter is preferred by factory drivers as it reduces wing flex, aiding in rear-end stability. Precision machined from 7076-T6 aluminium and finished with dark black anodising and mirror-like chamfers for exceptional looks and durability. These also look killer on drag cars using screws to secure the body and the low-profile design improves aerodynamics.
