JConcepts have introduced new Aero narrow and wide front wings for the XRAY XB2. Aerodynamics is a key point on any vehicle and in particular, 1/10th off-road vehicles. A drivers aero package consists of the vehicle type, body style and finally the finishing touch, the front wing. JConcepts regularly experiments with aero features throughout the entire product line, primarily bodies and wings. Front wings are not a new concept, however, they are new to the latest generation of mid-motor vehicles and demanding high-speed and grippy circuits.

Race report by Mike Gosvig (XRAY)
The weekend was a busy one for me, I started out with Friday practice on the nationals round 5 track in RCkongen Søndersø, track was super low traction, so I was working a lot to find a good setup to the track, the track was also technical and some corners you could not see the car, but I was almost the only driver in 4wd who could clear the tripple jump in the middle of the track with a good landing, this was good if you liked to get away og pass other drivers! I found a good setup to both my cars.
