XRAY raised the bar in the 1/10 buggy class with the XB4, bringing a new high-quality, high-performance player to the field for all others to measure themselves against. Now with a more adaptive platform, XRAY’s 1/10 buggy… the new XB4’16… is now even more the beast to beat.

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 detail, fine materials, and extreme performance, I am excited to present to you the all-new XB4. – Juraj Hudy

HB D216 1/10 2WD unveiled


Despite not being officially announced yet, we were very kindly granted access to a production-ready version of Hot Bodies’ new 2WD 1/10 buggy, the D216, here this week competing in Japan for the first time in the hands of Ty Tessmann and David Ronnefalk. We reported earlier in our spy shots story about HB’s rather unique vertical transmission setup, rather than go with the popular laydown transmission as used on multiple prototypes here the D216 features a unique design.

Having not been specifically designed for astroturf surfaces, the D216 is likely more at home on dirt surfaces with an emphasis on adaptability and offering a plethora of adjustment options. Speaking with David Ronnefalk it sounds as if a laydown transmission would be the way to go for future astroturf and carpet racing – the trend more in Europe.

With the layout and style of transmission, motor and speedo placement is such they balance the car from left to right, expect more details in the official announcement and release expected before the end of the year in time for indoor season!
