Based on its ultra-successful predecessor, XRAY proudly presents the new RX8 which incorporates the latest improvements and refinements gathered by the team, race-proven in high-competition races around the world.
All-new chassis features larger front window opening for more forward traction. The chassis also features a unique, innovative front flex adjustment using an aluminum insertable brace.
Adjustable weight position on both sides of the chassis offer quick & easy weight balance adjustment.
Overall, the chassis is very narrow to increase chassis flex and generate more traction and steering. The narrow chassis also prevents chassis contact during cornering, and helps to eliminate the feel of the car ‘stopping‘ in mid-corner.
The chassis features cut-outs for all bulkheads, front lower arm mounts, radio plate mounts, and front shaft holder as well as rear layshaft bulkheads for perfect fitment and to ensure that all parts will always mount into the same precise position.
The outer edges of the chassis have been beveled and screw holes have been countersunk to provide a smooth lower surface.
The lightweight chassis is CNC-machined from 5mm premium Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum, strategically machined in low-stress areas to make it as light as possible without affecting strength or rigidity.
All-new chassis with unique, innovative front flex adjustment via an insertable aluminum brace. Using the aluminum brace increases steering response & cornering speed; without the aluminum brace, the car is easier to drive and has more forward traction.
The new graphite brace for the rear bulkheads is an integral part of the rear suspension Multi-Flex™ system that offers the choice of different flex adjustments to easily adapt the handling of the car to particular track conditions and tires used.
There are two different flex characteristics to choose from:
Graphite brace not used. This setting increases flex in the rear suspension and generates more rear traction. Recommended for low-traction tracks, or races with spec hard or large tires.
Graphite brace is connected to the 2-speed bulkheads. This setting reduces flex in the rear suspension and improves out-of-corner steering and rotation, but also slightly decreases rear traction. Recommended for medium-high-traction tracks, or when tires with additive are used.
All-new redesigned 2-speed bulkheads allow to use bracket bushings to connects the 2-speed bulkheads with rear bulkheads to reinforce the entire rear suspension. There are two flex settings of 2-speed bulkheads.
Bracket bushings not installed.
The car has more traction. Recommended for low-traction conditions.
Bracket bushings are installed.
The car is more free. Recommended for high-traction conditions.
The new bulkheads are an integral part of the chassis Multi-Flex™ system that offers a variety of choices for different flex adjustment.
The all-new redesigned graphite brace for the rear bulkheads is an integral part of the rear suspension Multi-Flex™ system that offers the choice of different flex adjustments to easily adapt the handling of the car to particular track conditions and tires used.
All-new redesigned rear bulkheads are an integral part of the rear suspension Multi-Flex™ system that offers the choice of different flex adjustments.
The rear bulkheads are CNC-machined from premium Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum to provide the lightest & strongest framework for the car.
The all-new redesigned rear lower suspension mounts to allow the rear lower arms to be moved lower arms and more to the center to improve overall traction.
The suspension mounts are CNC-machined from premium Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum to provide the lightest & strongest framework for the car.
All-new redesigned rear suspension extensions work with new rear suspension mounts. Both front & rear extensions are made from laser-cut steel and additionally black coated for improved durability, and they also features optimized shock mounting positions.
All-new graphite holders of rear upper arms feature new positions for eccentric bushings which position them 4mm more inside and 2mm lower for increased traction. The new design of the holders offer improved durability.
The rear upper arm holders are machined from strong 3.5mm graphite material for optimal flex of the rear suspension. Both front & rear mounts are mounted on the rear upper clamps.
