wow thats a nice buggy i heard of them but never seen anybody run one where i live alest, atlest they dint copy off of other buggys. it looks easy to build but it looks like a pain in the ass to take the steering servo out of there if something happens to it.

It is claimed to be extremely light, but so far only for team riders

Because the factory that makes X-RAY is ,X-RAY & they cant keep up with the demand for X-RAY products. Almost 100% made in house,that would be the same building that the X-RAY buisnes office & packaging & shipping department is in,for 100% product control. I dont remember if the metal foundry is owned by X-RAY or just machined there after delivery,but plastic is mixed & molded there. There is a video floating around of a factory tour & its about as anal/insane as the nova rossi factory tour on their site.Some one U-google the tour & post the link.I'm too computer innept to find something like that,may have been on one of those english rc TV shows.

Yeah, foreign, domestic, any of them. When any company is getting quotes for a buggy, why not go to the factory in Slovakia and see what they would charge? Thats what is done all the time- you like the quality of product x, so you seek out that factory that makes it. Xrays prices dont seem to be off the charts.

It's not because the American worker charges to much, it's because companies want to line thier pockets.
I heard Nike shoes cost less than $3.00 to make so where is the leftover money from your $130.00 shoes going ? Millions on advertising, famous athletes and thier own pockets. Why make American workers money when i can just ship it overseas and keep it all for myself.
Greed.
