We should have some details tommorow, or the day after. I know that the motor has been moved back a few millimeters, aside from that I don't know what else has changed.

Cool

Whoo there cowboy! That is Les. I'm Tex1. No problem.
To me the Xray was the fastest car in the world. And watching the Worlds video proved it could handle the rough. Yannik made those guys look silly.
Hope I didn't butcher his name.

Guess Les is going to have to change his name. Since his name is Les.

Xray is probably the best fit and finish of any car in any class. Unreal materials and workmanship.
Good stuff. I hope this is a big improvment for you guys.

Les you should come race some gas with us.
Looking forward to Rocco and the crew to start comming out again.

Later and good luck with the new car.
TEX

Xray is after all known to be the luxurious kit among them all.
yes, seeing Yannick drove the XB8 with his RB C6 at the world.... unbelievable he didn't win any podium finish at last. But the world had known who's the fastest among them.

Has anyone read the details on this car?


How's this one:

New big bore shock pistons - new precision round shape for perfect movement inside the shock body

What the?
So does that mean the shock pistons in every previous model were square shaped and with the release of the EC model, they're going to be round?


And, I love this one: ultra lightweight racing body Like it matters on an 8lb car!

This car company is getting friggin ridiculous with making the most trivial of changes to a car, which before was supposed to be the "most adjustable and best handling of all time", and calling it a new model. One reason why I never bought a Kyosho, they'd come out with a new car and 3 months later make some changes and call it something else.
