Matias takes another Portuguese title

Miguel Matias

This past weekend hosted the 1/10 Electric Portuguese Championship finale. XRAY’s Miguel Matias headed into the final already claiming the 2wd buggy championship title, however, the 4wd class title was still up for grabs. The biggest threat to Matias in the championship, Bruno Coelho, was away at the IFMAR Onroad World Championships in Thailand. This made for a relatively easy win for Matias, gaining his second Portuguese 1/10 Championship title for 2014.

XRAY raised the bar in the 1/10 buggy class with the XB4, bringing a new high-quality, high-performance player into the field for all others to measure themselves against. Now with a more adaptive platform, XRAY’s 1/10 buggy, the new XB4’15, is even more the beast to beat.

We present the new 2-in-1 concept in the 2015-spec XB4, giving the ability to change or reposition components on the car to use a short LiPo battery pack -or- saddle packs. Everything has been considered, adapted, and included: repositionable bulkheads, slipper clutch, and motor mount; different upper decks and center CVD drive shafts; even a repositionable radio trays and servo mounts. This is an incredible leap forward to make the XB4 platform ultra-diverse to satisfy the needs, wants, and desires of racers around the world.

The new XB4 is artistically crafted in our in-house XRAY factory by design & production specialists, and then extensively tested and refined by the world’s best drivers. Designed, developed, and fully manufactured in Slovakia, Europe, with XRAY’s legendary attention to the details, fine materials and extreme performance, I am excited to present you the all-new XB4.

Tasos takes Greek Championship win

XRAY Greek Win

The last round of Greek 1/8 Buggy Championship took place in Athens at Zorri Track. The weather was sunny and hot, and the track very difficult. Tasos came from North of Greece to compete against the local drivers who raced at the same track 1 weekend ago. He started with a great pace and took the win in the first qualifier, and would take TQ.

In the Final, Tasos started out front with locals Makropoulos, Tsigkos and Perogianakis behind him pushing hard. A small stone lodged in between his chassis and front arm of Tasos car, dropping him back 11 seconds out of first. With only a short time to go, the stone fell out, allowing the car to once again work properly. Tasos then charged his way back to the front, taking an impressive win over Zagorisos and Makropoulos.
