so, is this car available yet??? The Border shows you can buy it from them, do they have them in stock or is this a pre-order? How much does $699 Euros work out to in US Coin? Anybody else selling these buggies and if not do you guys know when it will be available around the world? Thanks.

Last report was the XB8 was ready to be shipped. That was awhile ago, so than would mean that they are ready to be purchased.

I have a feeling it will come in cheaper than that. My guess is they want to price it at or lower than the 777 special 1 otherwise they wouldnt sell to many of them. I have one on order regaurdless of the price.

The Border is also selling a Xray T1 FK for 435 euros or $522 USD and it sells in the us commonly for $300-$320....kits cost more in Europe than they do in the US or Asia for some reason

1/8 buggies are one hell of an investment. Talk about operating costs.
