Default Xray X4

New Thread for the Xray X4 rumors in Social Media.

Let the speculation regarding the class begin.

Edit (08/27/21): Xray has confirmed the X4 will be a new Touring Car Platform.

It could be someone cool like a Monster Truck or a Mini / micro, but it will probably end up being a NP Drag car.

While I do not disregard your theory, the fact that Hagberg posted it on his IG, leads me to believe that it is a class/car that he drives. Typically, I don't see him posting/promoting regarding Off-road vehicles or other classes that he is not running. I could be wrong, but just hyping it up.

I don't care what it is, I need it I'm ALMOST as bad with Xray as my wife is with Apple.

On a completely unrelated note, if anyone needs a kidney let me know, I know a guy with one for sale, barely used

The theory is the T4 is being deprecated and a all new TC platform will take it's place.

They should have done it with the '20 ... or do you think It will be 100% new?

Well I think this was response to the 20 as they developed the platform as far as they could with the T4 constraints. There are some improvements on non standard TCs such as AMX and Mugen that couldn't be implemented using T4 suspension arms and such. Of course I am speculating at this point.

Heard a tiny rumor it will be closer to MTC2 style. Don't know how true this is. Xray typically make very tiny changes after a recent big change (T4 2020)

But also a part number announced for the T4 '22 coming in two months....who knows...

We also know that the X10 is getting an all new design. Could it be a 4wd 10th scale Pan Car like a smaller version RX8E?

I think they wouldn't invest in development and molds for a car that has not a big market.

I'm anticipating a new T4 car redesign with hopefully shared/compatible consumables from the T4 (long arms, hubs, belts, etc).

The arms and belts have close to 2 years right now from T4 2020, there hasn't been a ROI compared to the T2 arms which had 15+ years?

They could do both cars at the same time, similar to how S-Brand had two cars, traditional and innovative; and see which one takes the better performance.

Whatever it is, I’m sure we will soon get a series of 12 YouTube videos that will tease it bit by bit…

All kidding aside, I definitely respect how they just go all out on some of their product reveals. The series of videos for last year’s XB4 ‘21 reveal was pretty slick.

Yeah, I like the idea of having T4 being the existing touring chassis with the Xray durability, and X4 being the new innovative touring platform aiming at AMX and MTC2.

Since they do all of their tooling and machining in house which helps to keep their prototype and production costs relatively low in comparison to outsourcing ....could be anything... as an x-ray Fanboy I'm dying to know... Are they changing the designation of the t4 to an X4 is it a four-wheel drive Short course truck could be anything.... I patiently await the next teaser
