xlau

XRAY’s new ‘extra stiff’ 3mm XB4 alu chassis is CNC-machined chassis made from high-quality 3mm Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum, strategically machined in low-stress areas to make it as light as possible without affecting strength or rigidity.

Designed and recommended for use at high-traction tracks without graphite front and rear top deck. The 3mm chassis increases corner speed and overall stability – a “must have” option part for serious racers. Optional graphite body mounts are recommended for easy body mounting.

Spy shots of the new XRAY XB2

XB2 Spy SHot

A surprise email found its way to our inbox this afternoon, and inside it contained a little something many have anxiously been waiting for. An anonymous source has provided us with a few spy shots of the all-new XRAY XB2 buggy. The photos are from the recent EOS event, where XRAY’s Martin Bayer was behind the wheel of the prototype new buggy. The prototype buggy features an abundance of carbon fiber, including shock towersbattery brace, and a unique rear chassis brace/top deck design. It would appear as though the mid-motor car has multiple battery positioning options, however, Bayer is shown here running a ‘shorty’ pack turned sideways.

We anxiously await the official release of the XB2, and to see the production car soon!

Ashlee Owen wins at SWIS Rd.5

Ashlee Owen

Round 5 of the Swiss Winter Indoor Series (SWIS) was held in Shropshire, England. The event gathered some superb talent, including that of XRAY’s Ashlee Owen. Despite a trip to the emergency dentist to start the weekend, Owen qualified third on the grid. In the A-Final the front runners, Elliot Taylor and Chris Eley, would get caught up in lapped traffic, allowing the clever Owen to sneak by for the lead. Once finding himself out front, Ashlee never looked back, and went on to take the win!
