King Headz makes some aluminum parts for it - www.kingheadz.com
Xray makes some new parts - www.teamxray.com
Avid Racing has new brake discs - www.avidrc.com

Those are the only ones that I know of. I am sure some other companies are making parts, but I haven't seen them.

Also, I know of a few people using mugen clutches and shock springs on their Xray's.

Zukre, there are not many hop ups available for the xB*, since it comes very "hopped up" already. X ray does have some new parts and there are things like Brake Discs and bearings available from Avid Bearings. I think I heard Racers edge may also be making some parts, but they would be hard pressed to out do what X ray already has done, imo.........Jim

The aluminum knuckles are out, I have a set that I haven't gotten on my car just yet, since the stock ones seem very good(and light).

I have also checked out some of the new machined aluminum parts, but other then the bling factor i'm not too worried about those just yet..........It's amazing how we always want more no matter what we start with, ........Jim
