I've been there. I actually went Losi, Xray, Losi, JQ, Losi! I'd loooove to go back to Xray now that they've fixed the diff-bearing-explosion-taking-diff-case-with-it-every-weekend problem. That and the parts avai... unavailability kinda killed it for me. Sweeet machine, though.

Anyone else catch his lil word slip. He said he is testing this car getting ready for a new car. Then back quickly said he will test this car more.

Does X-ray have a new car up there sleeve?

Not surprised, they seem to release a new buggy kit every year. 08', 09', 10', 11'. I'm sure there will be a 2012 kit released soon.

He did say in the video that X-Ray have predominantly concentrated on on-road, but that he will begin to be more involved with the development of their off-road program.
I think that would be a good thing for them.

Semple,

Look at it this way, you won't need much spare parts to start with. It is good to stock some "essential" parts like bulkheads, drive pins, arms, rod ends, etc.
