LOL, avoid any T3 for sale ads in the Dallas area for the next year, especially if they say, "Adult driven"... Congrats, that video was hawt. I really enjoyed the part near the beginning when a few cars got hit and looked like a pinata busting open with RC parts all over the track.

That was ping pong balls. One car had a large ballon tied behind it full of PP balls and when it busted they went everywhere.

That T3 barely took any hits and was still in perfect shape after the race. I checked it over before and after and not a single broken piece! Thanks to David for letting me drive her to Victory! I think I laughed more than anyone while driving it!

Hey Eric, you are welcome! Thank you for driving my car so well. It took a little over 11 minutes for you to get 100 laps down. Then you surprised the judges because you just kept on driving, and driving, and driving more. I think that by the time they called the race, you had about 162 laps down. Great job!

My figure 8 body had a few scratches and dents on it, but the Xray T3 chassis came away 100% clean.

How cool is it that pictures of the Figure 8 (formerly VTA) car is in the Team Xray web page!
Go here to see the pics --> http://www.teamxray.com/teamxray/news/2013_Snowbird_Nationals

The author, Alexander Hagberg, didn't really know who I was, so he just said the car was put together by the RC America team. My car was driven by Eric Anderson for the win.


About half-way down you will see a white 1955 Chevy Bel Aire body like this one ...

Here's an article on Xray's web page specifically about the Figure 8 Race.

Did you know there is a crash race Super 8 in USA where the goal of the driver is not to be fastest but to be the last one standing? There was a Super 8 race at Snowbirds 2013 and it was the XRAY touring car prepared by David Walker and raced by Eric Anderson that survived this crazy derby. Check out the video here: http://youtu.be/EDzvupJr1JU
