"There's no better time to shop for an 1/8-scale off-roader, and the XRAY XB808 is a very worthy contender."

Here are a few extracts from the article:

"The 808 is a fantastic piece of kit."

"The feel of quality shines through and although we have only had limited testing, other reports and feedback from drivers seem to conclude that the XB808 is a whole lot easier to set up and far more user friendly."

"The real revelation though is jumping. The XB808 is so much more controllable in the air, a wholesale improvement over the XB8 series."

" The chassis has additional bracing coming from two composite parts which triangulate the chassis and front/rear gearboxes. When this is all assembled, it certainly does have a lot more flex and give over other Xray buggies, something that has again been engineered in by the team."

"It accelerates hard and carries excellent corner speed, whether you're on the gas on exit or coasting as you enter a 180."

"During testing we didn't break anything and the wear of the parts, or lack thereof, is impressive."
"All of the XB808's driveshafts are made out of XRAY's signature bronzecolored spring steel."

"The chassis is now longer to increase stability and has 10 degrees of front kick-up to improve rough track handling"

"Bling or not, it's certainly one of the best buggies I've built and raced for a very long time and that's coming from a dedicated truggy driver, so to put it into perspective, eight our of 12 drivers in the A final at DRT were running an 808 and when I spoke to these guys about the kit, they were just full of praise for it with comments such as it handles better, jumps better and turns better that the XB8EC."
"With the diffs built you get to one of the parts I'm most impressed with, the diff housing. Again these are a completely nwe design and it's one that has gone to every effort to protect and seal in the bearings."

"XRAY is at the top of the class when it comes to parts quality and component choice"

"The 808 felt very neutral in the air and did what it was told. I could attach a jump and not really worry about what the 808 was going to do;it simply leveled off and was predictable."
"When XRAY uses the term 'luxury', they're refering to well designed parts and quality materials"
"The input gear is integrated as part of the CVD for the center driveshafts, and it's encased in the diff case. This is a totally new, pure genius idea."
"XRAY cars are a tuners dream, and the 808 is one of those cars. Not only does it have all of the tuning options, it has the Hudy touch of adjustable everything. The 808 will be a snap to set up for any race track you happen to race at."

"The 808 accelerates like no other buggy I have driven."
"The all-new chassis was designed to keep everything close to its centerline. Xray also reinforced and beveled the chassis down-stop areas, and I haven't seen this on many cars."
