It's hard to talk too much trash on XRay right now, the cars are beautiful and it's basically considered an upset when an XRay driver doesn't win a large event.

I do think it would be neat to see them maybe fork the sedan design, and release a second car that's a modernized "balanced" chassis that's more FK04 inspired, and could possibly do more with LiPo, but I doubt they'll bother since they're winning every race already, and don't seem overly concerned with emerging technology.

The onus is on the other companies to challenge XRay, they're clearly on top right now.

Trudat. They do make one of the best rides out there. ITs just fun to talk about the newest version that everyone will be crying about to either get or the fact that there 0007 is not even a year old

From the first year Xray created they were realising every year new car. it used to be around March but for the T2007 changed to around November.

So I guess next car will be around that time

Because most racing is done in clubs, and LiPo is catching on with a lot of club racers? Losi and Schumacher have at least made provisions with their newest cars to make sure they fit, so clearly some companies feel like there's enough interest to give it consideration.

And if not LiPo, a chassis that's more balanced to handle the heavier brushless electronics might be worthy of consideration. There's certainly plenty of momentum behind that.

They probably don't care, like you said. I'm just throwing out ideas, since they have to change something other than the design of the bulkheads and height of the topdeck to justify a new car.

the club racers at my local track think the 007 is a piece of ass it dont handle well and they all jumped back onto the t2 and sold the 007 so hopefully the 008 will be a mild variant on the t2 as they discontinued that and i wanted a new 1

In my opinion Paul L ( paul lemieux ) word is as good as gold


no sense in talking about 08 car when the one of the best in the world says there are no plans in the near future.
