In the world of the small, agile, and super-fast 1/12 pancars, winners are separated from the rest of the pack sometimes by only fractions of a second. With simpler designs compared to larger touring cars, attention to detail is paramount.

The new XRAY XII may at first glance seem like a simple and traditional design, but that’s where the similarities end. The XRAY XII achieves a state of perfection by focusing on well thought-out refinements to create a car that is easy to drive, work on, and adjust.

Top-quality materials such as self-developed composite mixtures, HUDY Spring Steel™, premium Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum and highest-grade graphite are the signature of XRAY and the XII has them in abundance. Designed in virtual reality using the world’s most sophisticated CAD tools, and manufactured using the world’s best machining and molding machinery, the XII achieves a level of premium perfection in all details that is second to none. All parts are purpose-designed and manufactured by XRAY, so all parts fit and work perfectly together.

In a world where overly-complicated designs hinder rather than enhance, the XII stands alone and ahead as the best performing out-of-the-box racer.

See it. Feel it. Drive it.

T-bar mounting
Two unique T-bar mounting methods allow for two different settings:
o Club race setting – direct mounting of T-bar to chassis without pivotballs gives limited adjustment possibilities (recommended for beginner drivers)
o Pro race setting – pivotball mounting of T-bar to chassis for more advanced adjustment possibilities (recommended for advanced drivers)

The T-bar features two different setscrew positions:
• FRONT HOLES: Effectively lengthens the T-bar, making it easier to drive and smoother but less responsive to driver input
• REAR HOLES: Effectively shortens the T-bar, making it more responsive to driver input.
