XRAY 808 – 2009 Specs


“Based on the successful 808 platform, the new 2009-spec XB808 was updated with a focus on improving tiny details to make a tougher, lighter, and more durable top-competitive nitro buggy. With the legendary Dipl. Ing. Juraj Hudy leading the XRAY design team, the new XB808 benefits in every possible way. Knowing that upgrades of small details give big overall effects on performance, the 2009-spec XB808 is a perfect example of legendary XRAY craftsmanship. Stronger yet lighter components, smarter assemblies and designs… all with the idea of making the XB808 easier to drive & maintain, while still being ahead of the competition on the track and on the podium.
