Amain or discountrc always seem to be stocked. Also eBay is a great resource for parts.

Its very rare to find XRAY parts out off stock, however there are a few parts that seem to fail on some cars but not all, for example the front drive shafts and the 14t bevel diff gear seem to always be out of stock around the world and i don't no if its because XRAY is addressing the issue or because people are going threw them quicker than they can be produces, in either case there are options, I've been running SPEC-R for a year now with out a problem and as for the bevel gear, well the minute you start stripping them thats usually a sign your rear bulk head needs replacing well for me anyway but other than that my xb4 is the best most durable car i have ever owned besides the drive shaft and bevel gear my car is bullet proof and trust i punish my car 5 days a week and close to 5 packs a day.

The '16 will have re-inforced bulkheads so if they can be retro fitted then that may be a solution HSV

This is not an "issue"

Your Hudy setup system when used correctly and with the 20mm chassis support blocks (#107701) will give you the correct measurements each and every time

As the name indicates the Hudy quick camber gauge should only be used for quick setup changes and to give you a quick reference when making adjustments.
The results obtained using a camber gauge will vary when turning the wheel and will not be a consistent measuring method like the setup system

It normally only takes a couple of minutes extra to use the setup system instead of the quick camber gage and is always our preferred method of measuring if time allows

The front '16 bulkhead is a direct replacement, but for the rear you will have to slightly clearance the shock tower to make room for some of the reinforcements on the bulkhead when running the shock tower in front of the bulkhead (standard position).

Xray normally releases updated or new models with 1 year intervals.
This should be no surprise to anyone that has followed Xray for a couple of years

Updated parts and setup changes the Factory Team work on during the season will be incorporated into the updated kits to ensure the different platforms are as close to the top of their class as possible.

New parts are always tested to search for improvements and is a continuous work in progress
Some parts never even make it to production as they offer little to no improvement and in some cases might be too fragile or complicated for the normal end user.

The release times of new or updated Xray kits normally follow the European racing calendar to make sure new models are in place for the start of a new season

But some times this will vary slightly due to production capacities.

I think the wheels have been the same since the '14 model.

'14 and newer wheels labeled V2 have a +1mm wider offset in the front.

Other than that they are interchangeable.

New 12mm wheels also have the same offset but are significantly softer to increase traction.
