XRAY XB4 81mm ECS front driveshafts


XRAY have introduced the new 81mm ECS front driveshafts for the XB4. The unique ECS driveshafts with 2.5mm pin equalize the speed between the drive shaft and the wheel. With a unique 2-piece joint between the axle and the wheel, the same extreme wheel turning angle is divided into two shallower angles without joint binding. This means that at the same cornering speed, the inner wheel will not bind or vibrate. Drive through the corner is more stable, more precise, and easier to drive. The ECS Drive Shafts help also with improved landing after jumps. With the ECS driveshafts, wheel vibrations and noise are decreased to minimum, steering is increased, stability of the car is increased and cornering speed and smoothness are noticeably increased as well.

Spring rate is constant during the entire spring compression. Both rear and front linear springs come marked with 2, 3 and 4 DOTS for easy identification. The springs, like all the other XRAY springs, are manually measured, selected and matched into pairs to guarantee precisely equal length and damping characteristics.

XRAY XT2 ultra light body & rear wings


XRAY have introduced a new ultra light body and rear wings for the XT2. The redesigned XT2 body allows shock absorbers to be mounted either in front or rear positions. The high-performance aerodynamic body offers high-downforce areas for proper airflow and also the lowest CG possible to avoid chassis roll in most track conditions. Also new are the rear wings available in two designs to increased or decreased downforce. The new body is made from 0.75mm high-quality premium Lexan polycarbonate while the rear wings are made from 1.0mm strong Lexan material. The wing is mounted to the wing mounts supported by extra-flat shims to better support and increase the lifespan of the wing.
