Nothing against the other companies but with the economy the way it is, support the U.S. models.

i'm still undecided mainly because xray does have great quality parts, but the others are locally produced here in the USA so that also influence's me!
as for which i'll buy still up in the air?

as for the guys bashing the design and innovation of the xray, just don't buy it if you don't like it then don't look at the xray site and just forget about them existing if that's what you need to make you guys feel better, forums are for positive feedback!!!

My two cents
There are already 2S Saddle lipo's available and soon a 1S Saddle lipo

Well if your going to do that then CRC and BMI are the only company who has most of their parts made in the US. And are owned by people in the US.

Keep in mind that there are a lot of people (distributors) that sell the other cars that ARE in the US and make a living doing this. So either way you are bringing money to the US distributors.

And China has a ton of money invested in our markets... We're also borrowing money like mad from them while we stabilize our markets.

Slovakia does not have even a fraction of what China invests with the US.

I guess the plain jane "optimized" car isnt so bad. 2 cars in the man at the Nationals in their very first event with near zero track time.

Good to see there are so many options now in WGT for people to select from.

I think they could have been in the A-main if they drove Bricks with tires on them LOL
the only reason their wasn't more in the main is because all the other sponsored driver already had rides LOL

You may want to look at the entry list. There were some very heavy hitters in the B main and if I am not mistaken the WGT A main was the closest main there top to bottom in qualifying.

Let's see how this car performs. It is very optimized to be a copy...er... luxurious car to stand above the rest!!

But yeah, I will drive it first. I just get a huge kick off their website about how Hudy nuts over this car yet it is nothing more than a carbon fiber board that can't even take a 2S LiPo like the CRC can.

So optimized and luxurious. I think Hudy could have done a much better job on this car if they weren't thinking about tried and true technology to maximize their profits. Now, how about that CEFX 10th scale pan car. THAT car looks like a contender.

But this is my opinion, so chillax.

Wow, I totally missed seeing this thread first time around. I just started looking into the whole WGT thing since I'm thinking of getting one for next winter (I know, it's early for that).

Here's my take on this car:

Yep, it's not innovative at all. That kinda sux but there is a good side. I guarantee you that this car will work very well. How can I know that? Because the 10L, 12L, CEFX, T-Fource, HB, XII and every other similar T-bar car all work very well.

I really like the design of the CRC and BMI cars but I prefer T-plate cars. They have always been faster for me.

So, liking T-plate cars as I do you might expect me to jump on the X-ray bandwagon and get one of these right? Nope, I think I might have to go with a CEFX car.
