Considering how well the XB9e drove, this should be just as good.

That looks like another low clearance body though. What is with these guys that design these bodies?? Have they not seen the size of the latest lipos and some of these ESC's??

I hope it drives better than my converted xb8. I put it together, drove it a bit and put it on the shelf.

X-ray certainly does know hot to make their cars look good. I like that the car has no flashy colored bits to clash with the pain job you decide.

Cool. I have a converted XB8 and could not be happier with it.

I'm curious to see if they come out with something really new or just use the existing XB9e parts(that's what i did).

I have to say I'm surprised they announce it so fast, glad I sold my XB9E not a long time ago, it would loose a lot of its resale value today

Xray must have realised how many people converted their nitro XB8, they have never been much involved in the developpement of their 1/8 e-buggies so let's hope this one will be more "dedicated"

They always make a electric version, this is no different.

Yeah I know I raced all of them..(two 808E and a XB9E), that doesn't mean Xray released buggies with an advanced electric design. It doens't change their performances on the track but they should think more about details specific to electric like Tekno or Losi does. It's just my opinion.
