The road to realizing my dream was often filled with challenges, twists & turns, revelations & victories. Such was the literal truth in my pursuit of the ultimate racing machine, fuelled by passion and vision… a dream realized as the RX8. With a full stable of nearly every imaginable RC car in the XRAY line-up, the center stage held an empty spot for a new flagship to showcase XRAY ideals, philosophy, and commitment to racing perfection.

Borne of childhood passion and developed from my 37-year heritage of dedication to engineering ingenuity, the RX8 was crafted for one purpose: to be the definitive representation of XRAY craftsmanship and sophisticated engineering. My quest for realizing the dream has involved the full range of the substantial resources at XRAY’s disposal: concept & design, research & development in virtual and physical reality, and rigorously thorough testing before the RX8 races out of the stable and into the arms of the eagerly waiting world. Joining its brethren in the XRAY family, the RX8 is positioned to capture the hearts and minds of the racing world, and carry them into the Winner’s Circle.

The RX8 chassis has been redesigned to achieve better steering characteristics. The front of the chassis was widened to make the car less twitchy and easier to drive, and the chassis now has grooves for the engine mount screws which allows the engine to be moved forwards or backwards to accommodate either standard or small 2-speed gears. The new front middle shaft holder is positioned differently on the chassis, and there are two holes for the servo saver which allows for quick Ackermann changes. More placement holes for additional weights were added to the right side of the chassis.

The lightweight chassis is CNC-machined from 5mm thick premium Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum and is strategically machined in low-stress areas to make it as light as possible without affecting strength or rigidity. All screw holes on the bottom of the chassis are countersunk, allowing for a very smooth chassis underside with no protruding screw heads.

The outer edges of the chassis have been beveled and screw holes have been countersunk in order to provide a smooth lower surface. Provisions have been made to accommodate graphite reinforcing inserts or additional balancing weights, front and rear to tune chassis stiffness, balance and CG.

Radio Plate.

The radio plate was made stiffer in front to make the car more stable and easier to drive. A different set of two holes for servo saver placement allows for quick Ackermann changes, and there is more play around the fuel tank to allow more movement of the fuel tank.

The radio plate is CNC-machined from 2.5mm graphite material and the design allows for the easy removal of the entire radio plate (with all electronics) for quick & easy servicing and cleaning.

The unique compact lightweight radio case features a clean design and layout. The radio case is attached to the side of the radio plate and will fit any standard-size receiver and an optional on/off switch with water-resistant rubber cover.

Servo Saver.

The RX8 now has two alternative mounting positions for the servo saver that allow for quick & easy changes of steering characteristics. The forward position improves in-corner steering and steering response, while the rearward position improves cornering speed.

The centralized servo saver is ball-raced to ensure super-precise, smooth operation, and the adjustable spring preload tension allows for fine tuning. The servo saver also features easily-adjustable Ackermann positions which greatly influence the steering characteristics, allowing the RX8 to be adjusted for driving styles and track conditions.

Fuel Tank Mounting.

The fuel tank mounting on the radio plate has been redesigned to use a grommet and new O-ring with special screw. With extra space around the fuel tank in the radio plate, as well as the new mounting system, the fuel tank has greater movement in all directions which improves fuel pickup and scavenging as fuel is used up.

The 125cc fuel tank with hypertonic tank lid and internal stone-type filter is positioned in the center of the car, and features a unique low-profile design to allow the fuel tank to sit as low as possible. The internal baffles inside the fuel tank ensure that the fuel will always be in the area around the fuel line intake so even in long, fast corners the fuel will be constantly supplied to the engine. The fuel tank is mounted with rubber grommets to reduce vibration.

The fuel tank is molded from a special composite mixture which guarantees it to be extremely strong and robust. The fuel tank is glued together using a special self-developed robotic system that ensures maximum accuracy and precision in pre-heating and gluing.

The receiver battery pack is located beneath the fuel tank help create the lowest CG possible. Using the optional micro-size receiver battery pack allows the fuel tank to be lowered by another 3mm, creating an even lower platform.


Both front and rear bulkheads are now made from an all new composite mixture for increased rigidity and stability, and the all new designs accommodate a new front & rear wire anti-roll bar system.

The bulkheads are the backbone of the car where all main parts and suspension are mounted, so the flex of the bulkheads has a significant influence on the suspension, handling, and performance of the car. The RX8 features super-lightweight composite bulkheads with a very clean and lightweight design to create the lowest weight and CG, making the RX8 easy to service while allowing easy access to all parts. The bulkheads create a super-solid platform where all parts are mounted; a special composite mixture was developed to allow repeated assembly/disassembly cycles without stressing or wearing the parts.

Anti-roll Bar.

The front & rear wire anti-roll bars are all new. The kit now includes both wire and blade-style front anti-roll bars for freedom of choice based on track conditions.

The wire anti-roll bar is used to increase steering response on small technical tracks, while the blade anti-roll bar is used for improved cornering speed on larger open tracks. The new wire anti-roll bar is mounted to the bulkheads from outside, for quick & easy changes and adjustment. The roll bar turns in ball-bearings for maximum precision and freedom of movement. Anti-roll bar height is adjustable via a screw… quick & easy.

Different wire thickness anti-roll bars are optionally available:

The front blade-style anti-roll bar is fully-adjustable, and is fully independent from the downstop adjustment. The hand-ground front anti-roll bar blades — manufactured from HUDY Spring Steel™ for longest lifespan — are easily adjusted using a 1.5mm hex wrench.

The rear 2.8mm anti-roll bar helps to reduce rear chassis roll. The roll bar turns in ball-bearings for maximum precision and freedom of movement. For fine precision tuning, optional wires of different thickness are available. Anti-roll bar height is adjustable via a screw… quick & easy.

Upper Bumper.

The front upper bumper has been redesigned to accommodate the new front wire anti-roll bar system, and the special composite material is robust enough to withstand hard impacts.

The front lower bumper is designed for durability & reliability but, almost as importantly, to achieve the highest performance of the car. The downforce of the car can be easily adjusted using removable bumper outer window inserts.

Front Arms.

New front arms have been redesigned to accommodate the new front wire anti-roll bar system.

Suspension arms are one of the most important parts of any RC model car, as they directly influence the handling and racing characteristics of the car. The RX8 suspension arms are the result of long-term testing of different designs and layouts. Length, thickness, flexibility, geometry of suspension points and materials used… these are all the concepts and details that had to be thoroughly reviewed to create optimal suspension arms.

The exclusive composite mixture used for suspension arms is a perfect balance between reliability and performance. The suspension arm itself is rigid enough to provide a responsive feel, yet soft enough to provide extreme durability.

Steering Blocks.

The steering blocks have been redesigned to allow the mounting of new graphite aerodynamic disks.

The tiny yet tough steering blocks are molded from a special composite mixture for maximum strength. Thanks to perfect molding, bearings fit into the steering blocks perfectly without any extra play for maximum stability and steering.

The kit includes 0° kingpin steering blocks, with +1° and -1° kingpin steering blocks being optionally available.

  • The +1° kingpin improves cornering speed and out-of-corner steering while decreasing in-corner steering which makes the car less edgy.
  • The -1° kingpin improves in-corner steering and decreases out-of-corner steering.

Rear Uprights.

Newly-redesigned rear uprights allow mounting of new graphite aerodynamic disks.

The compact rear uprights are small in size but thanks to the special composite mixture used, they are also very strong. Thanks to perfect molding, bearings fit into the steering block without any extra play for maximum stability and handling.

The rear uprights feature two easily-adjustable upper roll center positions which are used for traction adjustment. The uprights also feature two body mount adjustment positions depending on the type of body used. Also included are shorter and longer pivot ball joints for optimum set-up adjustment.

Aerodynamic Disks.

New CNC-machined high-strength graphite aerodynamic disks
improve both low & high-speed steering, improve rear traction,
and improve stability in high-speed corners.

Rear Suspension Extensions.

Rear suspension extensions feature new different shock mounting positions. Made from steel for improved durability.

Pivot Pins.

Pivot pins have been improved with a machined groove that allows better fixing by setscrew, helping to prevent pins from coming out during operation.

Shock Towers.

Compact front & rear shock towers are CNC-machined from premium-grade 2.5mm graphite, and have been redesigned to fit the new front & rear shocks. New shock-mounting positions on the rear shock tower have optimized rear shock geometry and increase on-power steering.

Shock Absorbers.

The shocks are completely redesigned for improved traction and steering characteristics, and optimized up & down travel. The redesigned longer shock bodies accommodate the longer shock shafts, and new pistons made from special white Delrin™ material have been optimized for hole number and sizes. With the new RX8 shock absorbers, car generates more traction and better steering characteristics and car roll.

The set of pistons include 2 and 3-hole pistons with 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2mm diameter holes. The pistons are precision molded from special white Delrin™ material to ensure extreme roundness and extra-smooth dampening, while maintaining maximum stiffness and durability.

Shock bodies are CNC-machined from premium Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum and hardened to ensure maximum lifespan. External fine threading allows for quick & easy ride height adjustment. The shocks feature low-profile membranes for super-smooth, precise damping.

RX8 shocks are almost fully compatible with new NT1 2014 spec shocks, only the rear shock ball joints and spring hardnesses are different.

Shock Springs.

The RX8 comes equipped with C7.5 front springs to provide maximum stability and steering, and C5.6 rear springs to provide maximum traction and cornering speed.

The RX8 springs, like all the other XRAY springs, are manually measured, selected and matched into pairs to guarantee precisely equal length and damping characteristics.

Transmission & Drivetrain.

The 2-speed transmission has seen significant improvements: a new smaller & lighter carrier for 2-speed gear, new smaller & lighter alu drive flange with one-way bearing, and smaller & lighter gears from the well-proven NT1. All parts are smaller & lighter for better bottom-end power and acceleration.

The 2-speed transmission parts are installed on a precision-manufactured super-smooth lightweight hollow middle layshaft made from tough HUDY shaft steel for 2-speed, which is additionally heat treated for extra strength and long life. The 2-speed gear adapter is CNC-machined from Swiss 7075 T6 for precision fitment of the 1-way bearing, and allowing super-precise and wobble-free installation of spur gears. The high-quality 1-way bearing is hand-ground before installation for maximum running precision and strength. The 2-speed adapter is manufactured from hardened steel.

The RX8 drivetrain is the world’s smoothest and most efficient 1/8 on-road drivetrain. With the intelligent design and construction of all drivetrain parts, the transmission is super-smooth and low-friction. From the small lightweight axles, through the efficient ratios and lightweight pulleys, to the high-speed lightly-oiled bearings and lightweight drivetrain parts, all parts are specifically designed for maximum efficiency and durability.


The reverse clutch has been redesigned for use with the new smaller rear transmission. Smaller & lighter gears from the well-proven NT1 are now used, and a new 4-bearing system for the clutchbell gives improved durability.

This updated clutch design provides smoother and faster acceleration, while increasing the lifespan of the clutch shoe.

Easily-adjustable 3-shoe XCA (XRAY Centrifugal-Axial) clutch features clutchbell, clutch nut, flywheel nut and thrustbearing collar made from exclusive HUDY Spring Steel™. The hardcoated flywheel, clutch disc, and spring cup are made from premium Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum.

The internal shape of the clutchbell and clutch nut ensure easier clutch gap adjustment.

The Ultra Stabile Clutch Spring has very similar characteristics to the #348540 Conical Clutch Washer Spring Set. The main difference is that the new ultra stabile clutch spring works in a wider range of conditions and is easier to install. In order to eliminate spring deformation during use, the spring was pre-compressed as part of the production process. This results in the spring having a slightly shorter length. The length and characteristics of the spring will remain consistent even after a long period of use.

Spur Gears.

The smaller 2-speed allows the use of smaller spur gears from the well-proven NT1, allowing for faster acceleration and lower rotating mass.

Precision-molded spur gears are made from XRAY's exclusive secret blend of composite material, allowing the gears to run true and super quiet, and be robust enough to handle the power of a modern nitro engine. The spur gears are molded with a special technique allowing the gears to be absolutely true thus improving the drivetrain efficiency. Each gear is stamped with a tooth number for easy identification.

Front Middle Shaft Holder.

The aluminum front middle shaft holder was redesigned for easier access to the front belt and pulley for easier maintenance. CNC machined from premium Swiss 7075 T6 black coated aluminum, the smart design also allows for quick & easy front belt changes. The muffler mount is also now incorporated into the new holder.

Muffler Mounting.

The muffler mounting system is all new, and is now incorporated into the front middle shaft holder. This new design helps to ensure that the muffler is mounted independently from the radio plate and chassis so there is no flex transfer.

XRAY Multi-Flex.

When it comes to setting new standards in the RC industry, XRAY is always leading the pack in bringing new and innovative engineering ideas and solutions, raising the bar and quickly becoming a new market standard for others to follow.

XRAY's innovative Multi-Flex Technology™ (MFT™) was originally designed for 1/10 electric touring cars, and has resulted in some of the most significant milestones in touring car development in the past several years. This innovation not only received numerous awards and honors, but it has proven to be a distinct competitive advantage at racetracks worldwide... helping XRAY dominate races everywhere from local to national events.

The RX8 was the first 1/8 scale nitro on-road car featuring the Multi-Flex™ system. The smart design of the RX8 chassis allows for the mounting of additional weights or stiffeners for complete chassis adjustment. Whether you need to add weight or stiffen the front or rear, you have a choice of optional front/central/rear machined brass weights and central or rear graphite stiffeners. At the front of the car, both the brass weight and graphite insert can be mounted either fixed or flexible to avoid undesired stiffening effect.

Use stiff setting for high-traction tracks where a lot of steering and car response is required.

Use medium setting for medium-traction tracks. This setting offers good balance between steering responsiveness and traction.

Use soft setting for low-traction, dusty tracks. The car will create a lot of traction with this setting but will have less steering and response compared to stiffer setting.

Radio Plate Multi-Flex.

The flex of the radio plate can be now adjusted independently from the chassis flex which allows super-fine tuning.

Using the bushings in the rear, the radio plate can be mounted to the mounts either fixed or with a flex. The fixed radio plate mounting is recommended for high-traction conditions, while the flex setting is recommended for low-traction tracks to generate more traction.

The muffler mounting system was redesigned as well, and was moved from the radio plate to the front middle shaft mount. This eliminates the negative flex influence. Now the radio plate flexes more equally to both sides which improves consistency and, as it allows more flex in the front, also provides for more in-corner steering.

Low CG Platform.

Thanks to the very intelligent design concept and engineering, all parts are positioned ultra-low to create a very low CG resulting in super-stable and precise handling.

Premium & Exclusive Materials.

The RX8 is luxury model racing car and as such features only the most premium materials: premium woven graphite - exclusive top-secret HUDY Spring Steel™ - high grade Swiss 7075 T6 - high-tensile heat-treated steel and aircraft aluminum - and XRAY's self-developed and formulated composite compounds. All is premium and unique on the RX8.

Battery Access.

The receiver battery pack can be easily removed from below the fuel tank by a quick access composite cover at the bottom of the chassis. Optional graphite cover contains a special CNC-machined pocket in which the batteries are placed, allowing the batteries to sit as low as possible. The main feature of the graphite cover is its integrated Multi-Flex Technology™ functionality to additionally reinforce the chassis in the vertical plane.

The optional graphite cover is also recommended for use with a LiPo receiver pack. An optional brass battery holder adds weight to the bottom of the car. Multi-Flex Technology™ allows the mounting of the optional brass or graphite battery holders either affixed directly to the chassis or mounted independently from the chassis.

Engine Mounts.

The quick-set engine mounts are CNC-machined from premium high-strength aircraft aluminum. The engine mount has a fixed position for super-easy engine installation and gear mesh adjustment.

Integrated Belt Tensioning.

Both front and rear bulkheads feature integrated eccentric bushings which allow quick & easy front and rear belt tension adjustment.

Brake System.

A strong, highly-efficient brake system was created by focusing on all of the smallest details.

The laser-cut, precision flat-ground ventilated steel brake disk features extra-deep machined grooves making it very light and the split design allows maximum heat absorption. The ventilating holes are by design outside of the brake pad area to ensure maximum contact of the pads with the disk. Precision hand-grinding on flat grinding machine allows true, wobble-free rotation.

The specially-glued pads are resistant to high heat, and the special high-grip brake pads give strong, fade-free braking.

Both the brake disk and brake pads are specially heat-treated for maximum lifespan.

Brake inputs are transferred precisely to the brakes thanks to the ball-raced super-smooth brake cam. The alu brake cam is machined from hardcoated, black anodized 7075 T6 aluminum for better durability. Two spacing springs ensure a proper gap is maintained between the brake pads to reduce parasitic drag and heat build-up .

Drive Shafts.

The tiny drive shafts are manufactured from HUDY Spring Steel™, the most effective drive shaft material by the industry leader HUDY. Self-developed HUDY Spring Steel™ ensures the longest drive shaft life, maximum strength, and lowest weight.

The front of RX8 is driven by CVD driveshafts, while standard dogbones are used in the rear.

Hardened with a proprietary process, the drive shafts provide unbeatable lifetime and reliability.


The front 1-way and rear solid axle are small and light, ensuring super-low rotating mass and lowest CG. The super lightweight front 1-way bearing is inserted directly in the axle. The axle body is manufactured from Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum.

The rear composite lightweight axle pulley is inserted on 1-piece solid HUDY Spring Steel™ axle. All outdrives are manufactured from HUDY Spring Steel™ and are specially ground for maximum precision. All pulleys have self-cleaning holes.


All axle outdrives and wheel axles are manufactured from premium HUDY Spring Steel™ which has been additionally hand-ground for maximum precision and easy fit. These parts have unmatched lifespan and maximum strength to withstand the tremendous forces generated by today’s modern nitro engines.


All pulleys are molded from a special composite mixture to ensure low-friction operation, efficient and strong tooth profiles, and long lifespan. Pulley covers feature self-cleaning holes.

PUR® Drive Belts.

The drivetrain is operated by PUR®-reinforced high-efficiency low-friction drive belts, which ensure that all power is properly and efficiently transferred to all drivetrain parts.

Belt Tensioner.

The adjustable side-belt tensioner is captured on a graphite plate mounted to the side of the radio plate holder. The smart design allows the side-belt tensioner to be easily adjusted, or easily removed for engine removal.

The steel bushing for the belt tensioner also serves as a centering bushing at the rear center plate. The bushing is reinforced and stronger to ensure increased reliability of the belt tensioner as well as the centering plate.

Suspension Geometry.

The RX8 features the most advanced, race-engineered suspension geometry for nitro on-road car racing and is designed to provide responsive racing characteristics under all racing conditions.

Over the years XRAY has successfully gained and utilized extensive suspension geometry knowledge and self-developed suspension stiffness technology, which have been used with great success in electric & nitro cars, both on- and off-road. The ultra-lightweight suspension parts are molded from special composite materials that make the parts very light yet very durable to withstand the rigors of high-performance racing.

Integrated Suspension Settings.

The design of the RX8 features I.S.S. (Integrated Suspension Settings™). All adjustment possibilities are completely integrated, allowing complete set-up changes without changing or replacing any parts. The use of square eccentric bushings in the front upper bulkheads, as well as in the rear bulkheads for upper & lower suspension, allows for complete geometry adjustment. Roll centers are adjustable in the standard upper & lower positions, as well as in inner and outer positions. High-tensile steel suspension pivot pins are polished for smooth suspension action.

Adjustable Axle Height.

Front steering block and rear uprights feature concentric and eccentric bushings which allow roll center adjustment as well as positive caster adjustment in front. The eccentric bushings in the rear upright also allow independent wheelbase adjustment. The height of front and rear axles can be easily adjusted with eccentric bushings.

Wheelbase & Weight Balance Adjustment.

Wheelbase can be easily adjusted using clips on the front and rear suspension. Moving the arms towards the front or rear can also be used to fine-tune weight balance.

Offset Adjustment.

Wheel offset is easily adjustable by 0.5–2.5mm using included shims. This affects steering adjustment (when adjusted at the front) and also rear traction characteristics (when adjusted at the rear).


Less offset at the front gives more in-corner steering and improved steering response. Recommended for small technical tracks. More offset at the front gives more stability and makes the car easier to drive on large tracks or under high-grip conditions.


Less offset at the rear gives more in-corner steering, but less rear traction and stability. Therefore it is recommended to use less offset on small technical tracks or under high-traction conditions.

More offset at the rear makes the car more stable and improves cornering speed.

Suspension Arms.

Suspension arms are one of the most important parts of any RC model car, as they directly influence the handling and racing characteristics of the car. The RX8 suspension arms are the result of long-term testing of different designs and layouts. Length, thickness, flexibility, geometry of suspension points and materials used… these are all the concepts and details that had to be thoroughly reviewed to create optimal suspension arms.

The exclusive composite mixture used for suspension arms is a perfect balance between reliability and performance. The suspension arm itself is rigid enough to provide a responsive feel, yet soft enough to provide extreme durability.

Pivot Balls.

The RX8 pivot ball suspension contains precision pivot balls which are specially hardened for enhanced lifespan and to withstand hard crashes. A total of eight (8) pivot balls are included and are captured by strong M10 composite nuts to minimize weight and give smooth suspension movement.

Standard pivot balls are made from steel for maximum durability and lifespan. For those who are focused on minimizing unsprung weight, optional lightweight aluminum and titanium pivot balls are available.

HUDY Spring Steel Turnbuckles.

To guarantee maximum reliability all turnbuckles are manufactured from special HUDY Spring Steel™ material for turnbuckles for maximum core strength.
