Looks like they're planning on including some mud-guards for the rear arms too.
Updated front and rear suspension geometry will be nice

Probably experimenting with different lengths I would imagine.

A lot of mock up parts are pulled off the line before coatings etc are applied . Saves money and time . A lot of the parts don't have their finishes yet. I wouldn't read too much into it .

the white parts are all latest reviews of parts before production..
and how the kit will look..f.i. :

the screws for the antisquat links in the arms are in an angle now, before they were not
and the shape of the arms is optimised

the rear hubs are made less wide at the botttom, to allow more wheelbase adjustments
and to have the same look as the front carriers
longer chassis ?

front upper arms seem less wide at their roots and more refined too, aso
the top of the steering blocks will be more consistent cnc like the rear ones and black anodised

For the life of me! I can't tell how you would adjust the front camber! Don't see what you would turn! Or where a hex driver would go!

Cade and I think it is on the top arm on the inside where it connects to the top ball of the steering knuckle. There is a little space for a ball end hex driver. That was the first thing i asked Cade when we saw the first prototype pictures. If I knew how to copy pictures and put in arrows I would show you. There is also a good picture in the write up that shows the upper arm and that piece.

I know Reno and Martin are very excited about the XB8.

We should know very soon.
