No new buggy. They are just releasing the 808 with 2009 specs. Not alot of big changes and should allow you to get a great deal on an 808 right now if you find one.

I think X-Ray releases a new upgrade to all their vehicle lines once a year... At least that's what it feels like.

Its the same buggy with a few small mechanical upgrades that improve durability, and improve maintenance cycles. Basically this buggy was solid before, but now its bullet proof!

Here is the info:

Based on the successful 808 platform, the new 2009-spec XB808 was updated with a focus on improving tiny details to make a tougher, lighter, and more durable top-competitive nitro buggy. With the legendary Dipl. Ing. Juraj Hudy leading the XRAY design team, the new XB808 benefits in every possible way. Knowing that upgrades of small details give big overall effects on performance, the 2009-spec XB808 is a perfect example of legendary XRAY craftsmanship. Stronger yet lighter components, smarter assemblies and designs… all with the idea of making the XB808 easier to drive & maintain, while still being ahead of the competition on the track and on the podium.

2009 XRAY 808 New Specs:
• new ultra-low profile racing body, designed exclusively by XRAY
• new super-low profile foam air filter with redesigned rubber elbow
• new stronger, one-side steel-sealed diff ball-bearings
• new alu bearing collar reinforces diff bearing assemblies
• new reinforced composite front & rear bulkheads
• new larger capacity fuel tank with capacity-adjustment segments
• new fuel line holders mounted directly on fuel tank

• optimized front/rear and left/right weight balance for perfect jumping

• pinions, spurs, crown gears and clutchbell manufactured by HUDY
• optimized multiple upper and lower shock mounting locations for front and rear
• laser-cut, precision-ground steel brake disks for ultra-efficient fade-free braking

Nothing wrong with taking something and making it better. Losi had a good design. Xray just improved on it and the materials.

All I have to say on this matter (which happens to not be subjective like the posts above): please look at any thread/forum on the topic of what the customers would like to see change on the 808, you will find that most asked for the changes that have been made for this year's model.

Just for the small details. In Europe
Losi 2.0 499 € Made in Taiwan
Xray 808 2009 spec 499 € Made In Slovakia (still more expensive than china)

Don't blame people to buy an xray, if you can get the same performance and better quality for the same price. At least here it's an obvious choice..

Well said.

The only thing I wish the 808 came with is a set of plastic rear blocks like mugen did.
