Yes you can still buy parts for the first car.

I was at my local track today with my 808 09 model with another guy and his new 2010 model 808.. Wow i have to say with the box stock setup his car looked a treat on the track ,and he was a losi driver for the past 2 years and he commented on how much easier the xray covered the track.

Woohoo i am getting my 2010 this coming week and i cant wait to start building the kit.

hey guys. I have a mbx6 and was looking to get something different. I love my mugen, but was thinking of getting the 2010 version (if i can find one)

How would you compare the two?

motor's in and so are the servo's..hated the supplied brake/throttle linkage so I've swopped in my modded one from the sp2.

Any major difference between the fibre brakes with metal pads(currently fitted) or the metal discs with ferodo pads..

I'll give the metal and fibre ones a go as they are currently fitted..I do have at least 4 or 5 sets of kyosho bonded pads to play with plus a few sets of hyper 7 ones too..I did just find that the kyosho discs won't fit though.the xray has slimmer diff outdrives in the centre..now thats a shame.wonder if the kyosho outdrives will fit..I see some mix and match coming on.

I just installed the kyosho pads on my xray, but I had to dremel the hole into a slot shape to make it fit. They will fit a actuate smoothly with a little grinding.

I've been thinking of the pads from Mugen Seiki. The material they put on their pads for the MBX6 is really awesome. Whether it would fit or not is another story. Just sharing...

Been running the X-Ray carbon fibre disks with the hardened shoes for a long time now. Love them. Awesome braking, and no fade at all. Just take them out once in while and run them over some very fine sand paper in a circular motion to buff up the faces then pop them back in. Easy
AVID also do a set of Phenolic discs for the X-Ray. I am told these are really good too. I hope to try some as a comparison this year.
Just make sure you have the golden coloured hardened X-Ray shoes installed. The stock metal shoes with the ferodo material removed don't work that well.

I offered up the kyosho bonded pads and the holes line up exactly the same as the xray ones..I ran a set of them for 2 seasons now and I still can't see any wear to the pad material and they stop so hard I had to drop my brake epa from 60% to 25% or they locked instantly..absolutely no fade ..ever..

guess I might have to buy a set of 2010 metal discs then..shame

There was 4 people at my last state titles in sydney who were running the xray carbon fibre discs with the hardened metal pads,and every one of us suffered the worst brake fade after about 3 mins. There was just no brakes whatsoever after 3-4 mins.. I have now put the old losi 1.0 hopup front discs in my xray and they are fine. I am getting the 2010 model this week and will just run the stock brake setup.
