This car has to be up on all the new innovations, and weight balances that the newer run of the crop are runnin to be competitive
thats because you live in jersey and deal with people that have knowledge similiar to that of Snooki or the situation. if you want a real car get an Xray.......... j/k
our car is in no way, shape, or form not competitive. It is just as good if not better then every other car out there.

Tommy,

Put it this way, all cars have their weaknesses but more important is those weaknesses are identified and addressed accordingly.

For me, the 808 is very close to perfection (quality of kit, performance, supports, tuning options, etc). The next iteration will be even better...

How's the serpent, you got your new radio plate?

Xray must be doing something correct in Offriad, they dont have tons of big name drivers and still managed a 16th place in the Worlds considering the effort or focus seemed much less than other companies.

WTB 808 Springs. Looking mainly for silver F/R, but if you have some close in spring rate +2, -2 levels of stiffness, I may be interested in those as well

Thanks

Only XRAY boys will love an 808? Seems to me a lot of bad press and even hatred towards 808...

Not to talk abaout a 100 dollar serve that you fried for the 6th f...ing time, moore mony than THE CAR is off the shelf. Or the Xray BOB, that after the release still not have fixed the issus with the pinionbearings flying all over the place, heck, teamdrivers in Norway had to pick parts from the distributors shelf cars to get parts because they destroied pinions and ringgears sooner than i wore out my tires! And Xray could not get them parts because the could not produce enough of them.... Josh Wheeler is using Kyosho driveline to get the freaking car hold up, and so does several drivers here in Norway. Thats your seriously diploma engineer and LUXURY brand....

Bridgemond have some very very good points!!

When all the big manufactorers screw up, it is quietly swept under the carpet...

Hi ganymede - sounds like ¨Mr Know It All¨ hasn't actually ever driven a Ray. He just believes all the hype and BS that gets posted around the place and then thinks he is an authority on everything. Seems to be a common trait these days
We all know how good the 808 is, so it´s water of a ducks back really. Let them all live in ignorance while we enjoy what is arguably one of the best buggies out there

Shane,

I agree with you 100% but on the other hand I sure hope the 2011 spec 808 will blast the competitors out of the water for good...

If they fix the drivetrain, which they did, nothing comes close in durability and no one can throw the "Xray 808 Drivetrain Card anymore", because that was the only main issue. Come on 2011, even though I am happy with my mp9 drivetrain lol, I still want one.
