Prestige... Elegance... Luxury... Performance...

"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."

Dipl. Eng. Juraj Hudy
XRAY chief designer

"Taking over the further development of the RX8 has been a real challenge for me but also a great opportunity at the same time. The first years of the all-new RX8 have been very exciting and successful with winning multiple national championships including the US national title as well the Winternats titles. The XRAY on-road racing team, as well as the R&D team, have been doing a fantastic job and I am more than proud to present you the newest version of the RX8.

Development at XRAY never stops, nor does our pursuit of perfection. The new updated version of the RX8 brings forth all the best from the RX8 platform and adds plenty of refinements and improvements to make the already successful car even more reliable with increased performance and handling."

XRAY RX8 platform designer
