XRAY have introduced the GTX8 1/8 luxury nitro GT car based on the XRAY’s European Championship-winning XB8 off-road car. Sharing many high-performance parts the GTX8 incorporates all the finest details to achieve a state of perfection. The GTX8 is typically XRAY–premium, professional, high competition R/C car for the most demanding racers, developed with attention to the smallest details and backed by premium service & support. With XRAY’s uncompromising design philosophy bringing everything together to make the best GT nitro car, the GTX8 has the unique XRAY character, born of precision craftsmanship, highest attention to detail, and using only the finest quality materials.
“I designed and hand-made my first off-road cars back in 1986, and they were dominating the races thanks to unbeatable reliability and best performance. Years later in 2004 we have started our first mass production XRAY XB8 platform based on our long-term experiences, knowledge, and R&D expertise gained over decades, taking over the heritage I brought with me. Using the XB8 platform we have worked with the XRAY R&D team to create the finest and highest performing GT nitro car and I am happy that we continue to carry the legacy of my first off-road cars into this new platform in order to take you to the Winners Circle.” – Dipl. Eng. Juraj Hudy, XRAY Chief Designer.
Designed in virtual reality using the world’s most sophisticated CAD tools, and manufactured using the world’s best machining and molding technology, the GTX8 has attained a level of perfection that is second to none. All parts are purpose-designed and manufactured by XRAY, so all parts fit and work perfectly together.
“My commitment to perfection carries over into the GTX8 platform, as it has with all other XRAY platforms I am responsible for. Owning an XRAY, you can be sure that we remain committed to our goal to improve our products by continuous development and testing to ensure that you always get the best-performing GTX8 straight out of the box.” – Martin Hudy, XRAY GTX8 Designer.
The GTX8 project follows a typical development progress at XRAY: 3D models were first printed & tested, and after successful test results the production moulds were machined. To ensure perfect fitment of all parts, all pieces are individually tested during the development phase and then are tested on track to ensure maximum reliability and performance. The GTX8 is designed, developed, and fully manufactured in-house at the XRAY factory in Slovakia, Europe, using the most high-tech German & Swiss machines and premium European materials, crafted with XRAY’s legendary attention to detail by our artistic production specialists.
“Before I started racing off-road cars, I was actively professionally racing 1/5 scale on-road cars and I won 2x a European Championship. In my position as R&D Designer at XRAY, I was very happy to be involved again with an on-road project where I could bring my prior experience to the table. I have thoroughly enjoyed my involvement in this new GT project, and I strongly believe this class will rapidly gain popularity due to its simplicity, easy handling, and great fun. I will continue to support the ongoing development of this new platform, and will be available to support all XRAY customers.” – Martin Bayer, XRAY GTX8 Designer.
