Based on the ultra-successful XB8 platform, XRAY proudly presents the 2017-spec XB8 which incorporates the latest improvements and refinements gathered by the team, race-proven in the highest competition races around the world.

"With my long-time experiences with 1/8 off-road racing, combined with the expertise I have gained from the R&D process at my previous projects at XRAY with XB2 and XB4 platforms, I have incorporated all the improvements & refinements to the XB8 platform to make it better, easier to work on, and more reliable."

Martin Bayer
XRAY XB8 Designer

XRAY has been a driving force in the 1/8 off-road car racing scene since the release of the first XB8. Continuous development and evolution of the XRAY product line has led to ever-increasing performance. The craftsmanship, durability, and performance of XRAY kits have become legendary. Be part of the family, live the heritage.

All the work and refinements on the XB8 were incorporated based on our own experiences, and also by vast majority based on feedback from drivers all around the world. New ideas and prototypes were long-term tested by the factory team worldwide to ensure the improvements would work well in all track conditions and tracks in Europe, America, and Asia.

With countless wins in multiple classes at local, regional, national, and international levels, XRAY XB8 is designed for highest competition racing and ready to win.

Designed in virtual reality using the world's most sophisticated CAD tools, and manufactured using the world's best machining and molding machinery, the XB8 achieves a level of perfection in all details that is second to none.
