The third round of the BNK championship was held at the Vlijmen dirt track this past weekend. Sunday was devoted to free practice however previous rain showers ensured the track was wet but not muddy. The following day qualifying took place which were indeed very tight, for example when ranking the first qualification only 3 seconds separated the 4th from the 9th! That being said it was Bart Van Echelpoel who claimed pole position before going on to claim second overall behind Bryan Van Rijnberk but ahead of Michael Somerwil.

Ultimate high-performance racing springs give you additional precision tuning options for your XRAY model racing car! Developed through extensive testing and racing experience, these racing springs were designed and precision-crafted to have a more progressive rate than standard XRAY racing springs. As the car enters the corner the spring is softer which generates more grip, but as soon the car inclines the springs get stiffer and a higher cornering speed is achievable.

New optional XRAY XB4 spring sets; the main advantage and benefit of progressive springs is that as the car initially enters the corner they work like soft springs to provide maximum traction. At the same time, when the chassis begins to roll, in the middle of the corner, the spring rate progressively increases until they work like a hard springs which allows the car to maintain maximum cornering speed.
Like all the other XRAY springs, these springs are manually measured, selected and matched into pairs to guarantee precisely equal length and damping characteristics.
#368174 Front Spring Set Progressive – 2 Stripes (2) | #368184 Front Spring Set – 2 Dots (2) – Standard | #368185 Front Spring Set – 3 Dots (2)
#368273 Rear Spring Set Progressive – 2 Stripes (2) | #368284 Rear Spring Set – 1 Dot (2) | #368285 Rear Spring Set – 2 Dots (2) – Standard | #368286 Rear Spring Set – 3 Dots (2)

Juraj, first off thank you for taking time to take part in this exclusive Q&A with NeoBuggy, tell us a little a bit about ‘FX’ ?
FX Engines is a private company located in Europe in Trencin, Slovakia. Owned and operated by the Hudy family, the FX Engine company was established in 2006 to develop, design and manufacture RC car engines. FX engines are pure high competition racing engines for model racing cars. Designed with the purpose of bringing you to the winners circle and engineered with a focus on absolute perfection.
Why the name ‘FX’, what does it mean, where does it come from ?
The name and the idea is linked to the level of specialisation on this project – custom machines, unique processes, specially trained staff and selected materials, and tooling just for this project – all made ‘specially‘ for the engines. The name comes out of this philosophy – at times as if by magic the Special Effects would appear, and in the movies shortened to ‘FX‘, we thought this name suited this new venture perfectly – making special effects – FX.

XRAY racers can now run the signature AVID machined piston setup on the XB4 buggy. The AV1033 pistons are custom machined for XB4 shocks to tune high speed and low speed damping separately with 2 large 1.5mm (or 1.6mm) holes and 2 small 1.1mm holes (we call it the 2+2 piston). AVID’s test drivers found that these pistons help provide the traction and bump handling of running lighter shock oil or larger piston holes, while still maintaining the control of running heavier oil or smaller hole piston when taking on jumps.

This weekend the first round of the Czech Nationals took place in Horní Jelení. Unfortunately the forecast for the weekend was really bad, with rain all weekend long. Practice for both the electric and nitro classes were scheduled for Saturday however Martin Bayer completed only a few laps with his XB808E and decided not to participate in this class due to the track being flooded. Luckily the weather improved for Sunday which saw qualification start well for Martin, winning 3 out of the 4 runs. During the semi final Martin lead the race from start to finish with the scenario repeated for the finals. Overall it was a successful weekend for XRAY taking the whole podium and having 5 cars in the top ten.
