XRAY goes electric with the XB8

xb8 - coming soon - facebook

After much success with the XB8 nitro platform, XRAY has announced today the all-new XB8E is coming soon! While the front and rear of the car we assume will be the same as the nitro XB8, it’s what is hiding under that sexy new body that really counts. Stay tuned for more details!

phoca_thumb_l_IMG_1836

Round 2 of the Austrian Offroad Championship was held in Kärnten, Austria recently. A strong lineup of drivers made an appearance for the event including Hupo Hönigl, two time 1/8 nitro Austrian Champion Martin Karner, 2011 Euro warm-up finalist and Euros finalist in Wölbling, Bauer Dominic, and many others.

While many expected one of the three names listed above to set the pace, it was in fact Martin Wollanka who captured the overall TQ spot in qualifying. Despite some heavy pressure from the competition in the final, Wollanka drove smooth and fast to take a one lap victory over the competition. This makes Wollanka’s 2014 Austrian Championship run 2 for 2, and has him leading the points heading into Round 3.

The Lap Paradise Nitro Challenge event was recently held in Bahru, Malaysia. Indonesian ace, Jason Nugroho would battle it out with Switzerland’s Didier Perrin throughout qualifying. Perrin would capture the TQ spot, but the race was far from over. Rainy conditions set in for the semi-finals, but surprisingly the track would improve immensely for the final. Nugroho would take the lead early, and score the overall victory over Ben Panic and Youyi in second and third.

Notes: Running small mods here and there, a nice O-Ring rear body mount post as well as coloured wheels which Robin says he borrowed from another driver after ‘it annoyed him’ to perhaps try the same, and found it helps him to set his brakes during races i.e. not locking up.
