XRAY XB8 ’14 Review: On The Track



XRAY XB8 ’14

Luxury Defined: Quality And Adjustability

Author/Photos:  Stephen Bess


This is a word most often associated with food, makeup or Rolls Royces.  But a “luxury” RC car?  XRAY has included the word “luxury” with its vehicle names for quite a while.  The Webster’s Dictionary defines luxury as “a state of great comfort or extravagance” and “an inessential or desirable item that is expensive or difficult to obtain.”  Should your idea of luxury include ideas of foo-foo frilly and fragile items that are more show than go, you’d be wrong about the XB8 ’14; in its first full racing season, the XB8 ’14 has impressed in the USA and holds multiple TQ’s and national championships across Europe. 

XRAY nitro buggies have always been on the expensive side, but with the new XB8 ’14 kit, the buggy’s extravagant fit, finish and quality have recalibrated my expectations of what RC luxury truly is.

“Like all XRAY kits, the parts fit together like a Patek Phillipe timepiece.”
