XRAY Column – XT8 Truggy

Xray Column

The 9th installment in the Xray column from Xray owner and chief designer Juraj Hudy is now online. In this months column, Juraj takes about the development of the newly released XT8 truggy and the work that went into producing this car, from concept, to testing, to final production as well as the many setbacks on the way to market.

Having most of the parts finished and ready for the release for spring, we were hit with some very annoying bad news – the market standard for the truggy class had developed significantly within the last year, including the requirements for a 150cc fuel tank. Again we were faced with another difficult decision… either release the XT8 with the planned buggy fuel tank (120cc capacity) which would cause some negative feedback, or delay the project again and make a completely new mould for a larger fuel tank.
