Xray XII 12th scale

Xray have released their first 12th scale car. The new Xray XII may at first glance seem like a simple and traditional design, but that’s where the similarities end. The XII claims to achieve a state of perfection by focusing on well thought-out refinements to create a car that is easy to drive, work on, and adjust. Top-quality materials such as self-developed composite mixtures, Hudy Spring Steel, premium Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum and highest-grade graphite are the signature of Xray and the XII has them in abundance. Designed using sophisticated CAD tools, and manufactured using the world’s best machining and molding machinery, the XII achieves a level of quality in all details that is second to none.

Adjustable Reactive Caster

Reactive caster is easily adjustable by using easy-to-change eccentric bushings of 2.5°, 5.0° or 7.5° (included). Reactive caster is used to adjust the amount of caster change when the front end of the car is compressing (diving) or decompressing (rising).
