1/10-scale 2WD electric buggy kit

Need a highly competitive buggy? The XRAY XB4 has all the makings to be the ONE!

XRAY wisely worked off of its proven XB4 4WD platform to develop the new XB4 2WD buggy. This is a huge benefit as its compatibility makes parts sourcing easier as only a few parts were redesigned for the 2WD platform. The goal was to create a highly competitive buggy specifically for high traction tracks, carpet and artificial turf.

  • Dual arm steering system with Ackermann and bump steer adjustability

  • 3mm graphite shock towers with multiple shock mounting positions

It appears to be very refined, not all claimed novelties are fully new though. Using parts from a 4WD design to make a 2WD can also be seen on the Team C TC02 EVO for instance, which uses the same motormount, slipper etc like their 4WD design. Nevertheless, an interesting looking car, which should have plenty of options to tune it to most tracks, and driver's personal preferences.
