This video doesn't prove much or disprove anything about the buggy. Maybe if we saw a video that was alot longer, showing it making some passes on other cars. then I could give some feedback.

It's nice that it didn't flip upside down is all I can say.

That car looks fantastic. It rotates well instead of of sliding the rear all around and the suspension appears to work very well on the small stuff.

As soon as I buy one and beat the living crap out of it I'll let you know. The video looks ok, but so does all the other buggys that are well driven.

It looks so much like an 8ight it's not even funny. The shocks are almost identical. It's not an exact copy, but you can't ignore how similar they are.

Well how do you expect the shocks to not looks similar? Although Xray could have at least mabye added some kind of lip or something distintive to the shock cap maybe so they don't look as Losi-ish. The Jammin shocks look a lot like the Losi shocks too. Xray probably would have used their old shock design with the aluminum/plastic construction, but I'm guessing that the new wider shock caps would make that design too weak. What I really wish Xray wouldn't have done is to use the molded front top plate, that is what really make it look extra Losi-ish. They should have used a carbon plate, it would have been a lot more distinctive.

I don't like the fact that the drive shafts are at that much of an angle; it's more than the Losi. I don't think Sartel's drive shaft breaking at the Neo08 will be the last time.

It doesn't surprise me that it similar to the 8ight, but it also doesn't really matter.
