David Kukla takes 4WD Czech National title

The second and final round of the Czech 1/10th Electric Off-Road National Championship was held in Prague. Following the first round, run during the Summer on a clay outdoor track, the second round took place on a grippy carpet indoor track. After winning the season opener David Kukla was the pre-event favorite for the overall title in the 4WD class and he was able to put his buggy on the 3 spot after qualifying. In the triple A-mains David finally came in 3rd which was enough to hand him the overall title in the all-wheel class. Martin Bayer took the day’s win in front of Kaja Novotny. Marek Schiller and Milan Mudra rounded out the top 5 of the second round. In the overall championship Marcel Dostal grabbed the runner-up spot from Matej Sulc.

Xray XB8 2015 – Coming soon

Xray XB8 2015 – Coming soon

Xray announce the soon release of the 2015 spec XB8 1/8th nitro off-road buggy. With the 2014 version being well received within the nitro buggy community Xray had a hard time to improve the successful platform. This is what Juraj Hudy has to say on what is to expect with next year’s model:

I am very happy that during the year majority of the feedback and comments for XB8 were very positive and as such we have had a very difficult task with the 2015 improvements as there was not much to improve. The 2015 version of the XB8 will be the next evolution of the platform featuring a dozen of refinements and improvements making the car even stronger and better performing.
