The new XB4 builds on a platform that has been winning races since 2013. Let's take a quick look at the recent updates to this championship-winning platform.

Xray XB4 2018 - 4WD Off Road Buggy

A Luxury Off-Road Racer

It's difficult to describe a 1/10th scale 4wd racing buggy as luxury, but XRAY seems to have managed that with their new XB4. This fresh redesign for 2018 already sports a number of championships including recent EOS Champion, European Champion, USA Champion and World Champion.

Head over to the XRAY site for an overwhelmingly large amount of info on this new 2018 XB4 buggy: CLICK HERE for more info

Features:

  • Redesigned chassis accommodates new lower motor mount to decrease the CG.
  • Lower motor mounts decrease the weight position of motor and central slipper clutch/diff, improving cornering speed and stability.
  • Redesigned lower composite central bulkhead fits the new lower aluminum motor mount.
  • Redesigned side guard allows motor to be positioned lower.
  • Improved shock absorber lower shims give more precise shock shaft movement.
  • Improved construction and production details on both front & rear differential crown gears results in quieter operation and increased reliability.

Kinda wondering what there is to improve over the previous model. I have noticed that stuff like chassis flex is suddenly a feature, not a disadvantage in modern cars, which I find odd.

Based on Ryan Lutz's recent blog post about the IOCC, the mod drivers on carpet need as much flex as possible:
