XRAY XB8 2018 Spec 1/8 Off-Road Nitro Buggy Kit
The best set I've ever bought, after some of the buggies, Kyosho and Mugen. The hudy metals are impressive. After a lot of time and a lot of research. I opted for XB8! One of my passion is to build the car, and create the best set and this time I got it!

XRAY Rear Upper Inner Camber Link Ball Joint (2). Must have best fit!!!!!!

For this range of parts is missing:
XRAY Graphite Center Differential Mounting Plate (XB808).
Pro-Line ElectroShot Pre-Mounted 1/8 Buggy Tires.
XRAY XB8 Chassis Side Guards Graphite Brace Set

There is five stars!!!!!!!!!!
