The GTX8 is an all-new 1/8 luxury nitro GT car based on the XRAY’s European Championship-winning XB8 off-road car. Sharing many high-performance parts the GTX8 incorporates all the finest details to achieve a state of perfection.

The GTX8 is typically XRAY–premium, professional, high competition R/C car for the most demanding racers, developed with attention to the smallest details and backed by premium service & support…a luxury masterpiece.

With XRAY's uncompromising design philosophy bringing everything together to make the best GT nitro car, the GTX8 has the unique XRAY character, born of precision craftsmanship, highest attention to detail, and using only the finest quality materials.

Designed in virtual reality using the world's most sophisticated CAD tools, and manufactured using the world's best machining and molding technology, the GTX8 has attained a level of perfection that is second to none. All parts are purpose-designed and manufactured by XRAY, so all parts fit and work perfectly together.

The GTX8 project follows a typical development progress at XRAY: 3D models were first printed & tested, and after successful test results the production moulds were machined. To ensure perfect fitment of all parts, all pieces are individually tested during the development phase and then are tested on track to ensure maximum reliability and performance.

Designed, developed, and fully manufactured in-house at the XRAY factory in Slovakia, Europe, using the most high-tech German & Swiss machines and premium European materials, crafted with XRAY's legendary attention to detail by our artistic production specialists. The GTX8 is truly a masterpiece.

The chassis is CNC-machined from 3mm high-quality Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum, strategically machined in low-stress areas, and then anodized to make it as light as possible without affecting strength or rigidity.

Non-essential material below the engine, fuel tank, and differential was removed to allow for the lowest possible center of gravity and appropriate chassis flex.

Front and rear chassis braces have significant influence on chassis stiffness and flex, and as such have a great impact on handling under different grip conditions.

The longer rear brace is moulded from a medium-stiff composite mixture for proper flex & rigidity, and allows the mounting of optional graphite inserts to reinforce the brace to make it even stiffer (suitable for high-traction conditions).

Weight balance on the GTX8 is easy to adjust for different track conditions. Weight can be moved to the front, middle, or rear by moving the suspension arms as required to get the best handling.

Diff bulkheads are an important chassis component, housing both the front and rear differentials and providing mounting points for the suspension mounts and shock towers.

The diff bulkheads have been designed for extreme durability, while providing easy access for tuning and maintenance.

XRAY Pivot Ball Suspension XPBS is a uniquely innovative concept, and smart R&D design. The ultra-robust pivot ball suspension has integrated suspension geometry adjustment, with different kingpin plates being optionally available.
