XRAY have introduced the new medium hardness rubber shock membrane cell set for XB8 and XT8. The cell shock membranes have less air gap that helps to generate more grip, and they offer increased rebound and traction. The specially-formulated rubber material of the shock membrane ensures equal damping characteristics from the beginning of the race to the end, even after extreme operation. The membranes come in sets of four.

XRAY XB4 front & rear linear spring sets


XRAY have introduced new sets of front and rear linear springs for the XB4. Front & rear linear springs have been specifically designed for the big-bore shocks.

The springs, like all the other XRAY springs, are manually measured, selected and matched into pairs to guarantee precisely equal length and damping characteristics.

VSR 8IGHT-X 10mm wing shim

See: VSR Products

Coming from VSR and made for the TLR 8IGHT-X is a 10mm wing shim. The addition of the 10mm wing shim elevates the rear wing of the ‘X’, creating more downforce and stability at high speeds, on large jumps as well as bumpy tracks. It was developed with TLR team driver Jason Frank, who had this to say about the effects of the VSR shim:

“The VSR wing shim helped generate more grip and stability from the rear of the car and without a doubt is must have on a bumpy and low bite track.”

The 10mm 3D printed shim comes with 2 metric screws to replace the stock ones.
