XRAY have introduced the new Slipper Eliminator for XB2. It a direct replacement for the slipper clutch set. The Slipper Eliminator is designed and recommended for use with stock motors to reduce rotating mass, reduce weight, and improve power transfer from motor without any power loss. With the Slipper Eliminator, motor performance is transferred directly to the car, and there is also no need for clutch & slipper adjustment. Exchanging the spur gear is then extremely very quick & easy. Set includes aluminum slipper shaft, aluminum spur gear hub, and 69T spur gear (an optional 72T spur gear is available).

From April 27th to 30th the South American championship and FAMAR Cup, took place in the city of Medellin, Colombia. It was a tough challenge for all drivers to set the engine and clutch just right due to track being located 3,000 meters above the sea level! Wednesday was a free testing day. Testing kept on during the Thursday morning and at the end of the day the first qualification was ran. On Friday Q2 and Q3 were completed but due to the rain, the last qualification had been postponed till Saturday morning. Bregante Nicolas wins this qualification with perfect score and achieved the TQ.

Race report by Bruno Coelho:

Last weekend, we headed to the last EOS race of this season, in Nurburgring Germany, with only one thought in mind. We needed to win. The XB4 behaved so well throughout the entire season, there was never a track that the car didn’t felt comfortable and for me the only way to make this car any justice would be adding the EOS series to the World Championship. 
My XB4 was perfect from minute 1, and I manage to get TQ, which early secured the goal for this race. And once that goal was secure, we could relax and simply enjoy how much fun this car is to drive. I’m super happy and proud with the win in this race and also for the overall results we were able to achieve for this car.

The second round of the Czech 1/8 IC buggy series took place at beautiful track in Horni Jeleni. In qualifications the Top 4 was pretty close with local star Max Gotzl, Jiri Mara, Tomas Kapicka and Kaja Novotny fighting for the overall TQ. Overall TQ went to Jiri Mara with Gotzl and Novotny in second and third.

After few more changes on his XB8’15 for the semifinal Novotny manages to take the pole position for the main final. In the final the same Top 4 as in qualifications, got quickly away from the rest of the field. Around the 15th minute Jiri and Novotny were away from the rest and fought for the win. Until the 26th minute they crossed the timing loop every time less than 1 second apart from each other, switching positions many times. However Novotny had to face a small problem (stone under the clutch bell), which meant he had to settle down for 2nd place. Tomas Kapicka takes the third position.

The first round of the 2016 Austrian Nationals was held on the wonderful track of the MRC Oberaich in the middle of Styria. It is quite a unique track in Austria because it is possible to race 1/10 scale as well as 1/8th scale and both feel right on the track. In the past years the track had a lot of traction, but this year the sugaring did not work as usual and the surface started to become glazed and polished and was super slippery but still very abrasive.
