Well...the info on RadiocontrolZone is from Xray directly....and was late to be posted as well.

Look at the date it was posted and compare that to the text posted on the XB8 description tab on the teamxray site.

RCZ has been doing this a LOT lately...information on new stuff is showing up here long before it hits there.

On a side note, Horizon had the XS3 pro in their Tork flyer and a thread was running on RCZ for weeks before it made it to the new stuff forum

So if they would re-introduce an MP6 under another brand it would be new...?

Often times companies will release a product to the public through RCCA because they know it will reach a fair amount of the public at the same time.

Sometimes companies don't.

Good luck.

I can't find anyplace in the US that has infoo on this buggy yet as Horizon hasn't received or hasn't released any information on it yet and they are the distributor.

Horizon is the distributor for Xray products?

Until any other announcement is made, Horizon is it for the US...since the relationship with Serpent USA and Xray/Hudy came to an end, Horizon is the only other distributor.

Hopefully another supply channel will open up soon. I'm rather frustrated by Horizon claiming they have no info on the buggy when Serpent USA, RCCA, Xtreme RC cars, this forum, the RCZ forum and teamxray.com have had detailed information on this buggy yfor months.

My understanding was Serpent USA was the only US distributor. I suppose the Horizon thing is new.

Horizon started carrying and distributing Xray back in the winter.

At that time I had heard that Serpent was still the importer though. I'm not sure exactly how the relationship stands now, except that Serpent is out, and Horizon is where shops are sourcing parts from. Whether Horizon is surviving on current inventory or is actively importing is somoething I don't know.

I,ve seen the car on the official website and other sites.
It really seems a LUXURY buggy for a "I dont care how much" driver.
Very good materials and smart solutions for those common problems that have both Mugen and Kyoshos.

But ther is one thing thatīs bothering me.
Are those shock caps Alluminium-Plastic? If they are, They better be made whith a strong composite.

Has anyone seen them? are they?


PD: By the way, GOOD LUCK to all the drivers attending to the worlds. Specially to my good friend Adrian Castro.

PD: My pick is for Chad Bradley. Just for the revenge of what happened to him on 2002 worlds Final in Uruguay.

Excuse my bad english.
