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.

XRAY Multi-Flex™ Chassis Adjustment
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 front/central/ 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.

Powerful, High-efficiency Brake System
A strong, highly-efficient brake system has been created by focusing on all of the smallest details. The CNC-machined, precision flat-ground ventilated steel brake disk allows fade-free braking in conjunction with the special high-grip brake pads bonded to brake plates. The specially-glued pads are resistant to high heat.

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

Two spacing springs ensure a proper gap is maintained between the brake pads.
Brake inputs are transfered precisely to the brakes thanks to the super-smooth ball-raced brake cam. The alu brake cam is machined from 7075 T6 aluminum and both brake disk and brake pads are specially heat treated for maximum lifespan.
