Cool The "DarkSide" enters nitro tourers!

www.teamxray.com have announced they are releasing a nitro 200mm tourer is this the beginning of the end for kyosho and mugen? or will we see the japanese finally being pushed by a legitimate competitor from europe?

is the new japsec going to be "EuroSpec"?



the release is April 2007, maybe we will see some early editions in sydney for the state titles?

i think most people will stick to what they know!
xray are new to the nitro onraod game and i am sure there car will have a few hiccups as with any brand new car design.

umm' no,
i'm thinking that updating to the new model every 6-8 months is a little too extreme for me
i think that i'll stick to my mugen and update to the new car when they bring it out in 2-3 years
that way i'll most likely get to use some of the spares i have

looks like a kyosho handle, kyosho/mugen rear tower, mugen top deck new style tank, kyosho/mugen rear links

except no doubt xray will build into it 5 different roll centre positions front and rear, 5 different ackerman adjustments, adjustable track width L-R and F-R, along with other cool inclusions.

i can't wait! finally a nitro car that ISN'T a Serpent that has the adjustable, clickable piston hole feature in the shocks
