XRAY proudly presents the XT8. With the extensive knowledge and experience of the R&D and racing team, the XT8 was completely redesigned to incorporate the latest technology and racing designs to allow the XT8 to win races at the highest-competition races.

"The XT8 is built to the same standards of excellence that you would expect from all other XRAY platforms. It is one of the most responsive trucks that I have ever driven, and I simply love it. The XT8 has the agility of an 1/8 buggy but the stability of a truggy, acceleration is outstanding, and the drivetrain is extremely smooth and free. My fuel mileage has never been better!

I look forward to racing the new XT8 and having many successes at upcoming races.  Please come to say hello if you see me at the track, I am always happy & willing to help."
