Hi,
I saw some prototypes parts on T4 19 and Xray try to lower shocks more down, so they move mounting point on arm lower. It is not in middle. They have new lower shock tower too. This cause that the arms are no symmetrical anymore.

That make sense....thank you.
Maybe it would been smarter (at least for spare parts management) to have symmetrical arms with eccentric shock mounts fixed on arms....

New Xray video is about plastics and there are new arms.

Yes maybe it was, but I think that there is always pros and cons.

I believe there was a company, maybe Ruddog. That was making the lower position shock mounts, for the 19.

But then you still have another part to stock in case it breaks. And they have another part to mold or machine adding expense. Id say in the long run having different arms is the cheaper/easier route on all sides.

In 7 years running Xrays, indoors and out, I've broken a total of 1 arm. And that was running a 4.5t indoors on foams, when I launched into a wooden bench at full speed.

So arms are not really a part you need to carry with Xray quality.

Similar experience, Xray arms don't break often, but I still carry 1 front 1 rear in my bag just in case. I just don't see how non-symmetrical different arms is cheaper in long run. Mean I will have to carry 4 arms instead of 2.

One is for mid motor and the other is for rear motor. The rear motor mount is shown in the same picture.
