Here's a great article from RedRC about 'making the Xray X1'.

Really nice looking product by Xray! The layout is reminiscent of our old F1Ultra (F103) which proved to be amazing for asphalt;



The only issue is it will be too wide for the realistic Tamiya F104 bodies....

I hope the new Xray helps propel the F1 class back to the top.

Will Xray jumping in inspire Associated next?

What? Is the Xray X1 wider than 190mm? That would make it useless for racing in the Snowbirds or IIC (both of them adhere to the UF1 rule set). I certainly hope that Martin Hudy didn't make it 200mm wide.

I really like this F1 body in one of the 'Making Xray X1' pics. I hope this body is included with the X1 kit.

I think he's talking about the transverse battery mounting. Makes it harder to mount Tamiya bodies with the teardrop side pod shape. (Imagine trying to mount an F104 body on an F103)

I was wondering if that front lexan wing mount was legal in UF1 Midwest?

I'm a die hard VTA guy and never had a 21.5 ride but this Xray F1 will be in my stable for sure! Very exciting time to be an on-road competitor!

It cannot be wider then 190mm, ETS rule is 190mm and narrower (so does every where else).....and HUDY is running the prototype car since last year ETS. And they are running the car right now at ETS #1.
