The XB2 platform works at the highest competition level in any track conditions, whether it be super-low-traction dusty tracks, medium-traction, or super-high-traction carpet or astro turf; there is an XB2 for you that will handle flawlessly in any of these conditions.
To ensure that the XB2 will work at the highest competition levels in most typical track conditions, the Carpet Edition features two different hardness of suspension parts. Regardless if you race on low, medium, or high-traction tracks, the XB2 has got you covered with a complete suspension specifically designed for particular track conditions. For some specific very-high traction conditions, optional graphite suspension parts can be used to further improve the performance and handling of the car.
The layout of the XB2 was designed with attention to optimal weight distribution & balance. During the design and prototyping phases, several different layouts were tested and an extensive amount of data was collected, compared, and evaluated by the factory team before the final design was chosen. The XB2 weight balance was specifically optimized for each Edition, individually.
The XB2 is a conventional gear-driven 2WD off-road car featuring:
- Rear ball differential (Dirt Edition) or gear differential (Carpet Edition) with adjustable oil viscosity, featuring 53T gear and internal satellite gears
- 25T graphite composite idler gears
- 20T super-lightweight Swiss 7075 T6 hardcoated aluminum top shaft
- Adjustable slipper clutch with 81T main spur gear
rear CVD drive shafts
The dual-arm steering system is very simple yet effective. The steering system is fully bearing-equipped with 8 high-speed ball-bearings for very precise steering. The Ackermann is easily adjusted by quickly & easily changing the steering link mounting positions on the steering plate. Bump steer is easily adjusted for more aggression by inserting a shim between the steering block and steering linkage. Ackermann is also easily adjusted by inserting a shim on the steering plate as well changing various graphite extension plates on the steering blocks.
Front and rear shock towers include multiple shock positions, and the rear shock tower also holds the wing mount.
* Carpet Edition includes shock towers machined from premium-grade graphite.
* Dirt Edition features composite shock towers in order to generate more traction.
The high-performance, low-profile aerodynamic body was designed by XRAY to perfectly fit the XB2 and to work effectively in most track conditions. The front and rear of the body (together with the central rib) have been designed for additional downforce to stabilize the car. The body sides as well as cockpit sides are as flat as possible to direct airflow around the body for improved side stability. On the top of roof, two flow channels are incorporated for proper airflow.
