Wow, XRAY seem to have kicked it with this update.

Every little part of the car that needed attention has been given it, and every part that was good has been left untouched. Having read through the details a few times there are MANY parts that have been updated, so it's no surprise they've chosen to change the name. Let's just hope the changes do what they're supposed to do! Looking at the short clip of Reno'w car I looks great.

The body design is definitely a bold move, but, I think it looks bad in the silver colour they have chosen and it really isn't doing it justice. Once it's in your own colours it will look much better, and I think a lot of effort and thought has gone in to designing something that adds a performance gain on the track.

Plus, as others have stated, there will be many aftermarket shells available soon after launch!

Roll on Jan/Feb next year!!

Not saying anything bad about Xray. I know they are solid cars, from those I know who run them. If they bring their E-buggy up to XB9 specs, I might even consider trying something new.
Yah, thats true. I was just thinking of the "Whatever wins Sunday, sales Monday" thought!

That works on the lemmings, true.

Hopefully most of us can make up our own mind.
