Xray Column – Decade of Triumph

Xray Column - Decade of Triumph

The 38th installment in the Xray column from Xray owner and chief designer Juraj Hudy is now online. In this months column, Juraj reflects on a decade of the Xray brand, going through each element of the company and it has changed since 1999 and what they can expect in the future.

Over the past decade we went through plenty of very happy moments, but we have also faced our share of troubles, tough times, difficult decisions, and challenging moments. To put all those memories down on paper would be enough to fill a novel the size of War and Peace. I realize that to summarize them in one column is impossible, so I will try to share the highlights of the different areas and how I have seen how they have changed over the years and what I think will be the future.

X-Factory X-60 Body reinforcement plate

X-Factory X-60 Body reinforcement plate

X-Factory have announced a cool new carbon fibre part to reinforce the rear body clip area of the X-60 body. Because the rear body clips are in a recessed spot, this area is naturally a weak spot on the body, so this new part spreads the stress over a larger area to lengthen the life of the body. The C.F. part bolts onto the existing body and will transfer easily to a new body, so one purchase will last through several bodies for the life of your truck. Supplied with the screws and locking nuts to install it and a drill bit so the body mount holes can be enlarged to accommodate the new part.

Team Orion Marathon 1900 XL RX packs

Team Orion Marathon 1900 XL RX packs

Team Orion have developed an entirely new cell to create the largest capacity receiver pack, the Marathon 1900 XL. With the use of powerful digital servos in addition to larger and heavier cars like truggies and monster trucks, higher capacity receiver packs have become a must for nitro fans and only top-quality cells should be used to avoid loss of signal and radio glitches. Maximum capacity is a key advantage in racing and only Team Orion Marathon packs combine extreme capacity with incredible performance. Available in both flat and hump pack configurations, they also come in 1700mAh versions and with a choice of JR or BEC connectors.
