Xray have released complete details on their all new XT8 1/8th scale truggy platform. A totally new car from its predecessor the chassis was completely redesigned to allow for updated and all-new weight distribution to improve chassis balance and stability. The major performance & handling improvement of the XT8 is the all-new weight balance that relocates weight to the front. This improves rotation of the truggy, increases cornering speed, improves handling in jumps, and offers more forgiving handling. To enable this an all-new fuel tank was designed and produced to make it super short, allowing placement (and weight) towards the front of the truggy. Every other part of the car has also received some tweaks and updates from the suspension arms, to the drive train, gear diffs, diff bulkheads, shock towers, shock absorbers and more.
