This is what Miguel has to say about the deal:
I am very excited to join the Xray team. Over the years I have admired the constant growth of the Xray company which is in my opinion a result of their very dedicated and professional work. Having tested both XB4 and the new XB8 I was surprised by both reliability and performance. Since the 2014 is the year of Worlds I wanted to have an absolute confidence in the car and to have a strong team backup and as such it was an easy choice to join the forces with the Xray. I am looking forward to work with the R&D team and I would like to thank to Xray for this opportunity. I will do all my best in 2014 in both 1/10 & 1/8 off-road and hope to see you all during the season.
