Strong composite lower suspension arms with mounting spots for the pivotball activated anti-roll bar. The arms are a closed type design for aero effect, rigidity and clean looks. On the upper side optional carbon inserts can be applied in case harder arms are needed for handling. Composite insertplates are standard.
The rear arms have 2 shock mounting positions on each side front and rear. The front and rear shockmounting positions are different and the arms can be used on both sides of the car, so you have 4 shock angle positions to choose form.
The rear arms allow to mount the shocks also in the rear of the car.
Suspension arms pivot balls
Instead of inner pivot pins the SDX4 uses small pivotballs which thread inside the arm. The suspension brackets are machined to adapt the pivotballs and create a low friction, no binding suspension. By turning the pivotballs in or out you can set the optimal play between the front and rear bracket.
Hard coated aluminum suspension brackets fr fr and fr rr. Small but effective composite front bumper to protect the front end. The angled front built in kick up allows for smoother landings.
The rear rear suspension bracket can be used standard with o-degree or upside down as 3-degree anti-squat.
The strong front diff case assembly based on 2 durable 7075 T6 bulkheads is a very strong affair to mount the diff-housings, front shock tower and chassis too. Its also features the holders for the ballraced anti-rollbarmounts.
Both the front and rear arms and bulkheads allow mounting the ball-raced anti-roll bars. The wire type anti-roll bars are lasered for easy indentification. The wire connect to the arms with the proven friction free supersmooth pivotball system. Its very easy to access and change the anti-roll bars as needed.
The motor is mounted securely to the thick 3mm cnc machined 7075 T6 alu motor plate. The motor is mounted to the sliderplate, which is then easily slotted in position.
Center drive holders
The slipper clutch unit is hold in place by the motormount bracket and a H shaped lightened 7075 T6 aluminium holder topped by a carbon connector plate that also holds the cable guiders in place.
The slipper can also be replaced by a geardiff in the center. Its supereasy to access the slipper or central gear diff.
The lightened 7075 T6 aluminium uprights are same left and right and feature 3 camberlink positions.
The front and rear wheel hex are 12mm industry standard size. The hexes are clamp type and anodised to last. Flanged wheelnuts are included to keep the wheels in place.
The strong composite body mounts are easily located in case used. As alternative velcro can be added to the side of the chassis stiffeners/side bars.
Top quality clear polycarbonate is used for the Spyder SRX4 buggybody . The nicely shaped body has flat sides and roof for extra downforce and great handling. It leaves enough space for electronics and cooling finds as needed. The body closely follows the chassis shape, so less debris can enter the car. The body comes with a white precut masking sheet.
Rear wing and wing holder
The strong clear polycarbonate wing is mounted to the nylon rear wing holder.

The SDX4 starts at $533, definitely a 4wd Buggy that will appeal to the average consumer. Given its top speed with a Hobbywing 5.5T brushless Motor, that’s probably a next level thing.
