What's the difference between 808 and xb9? Which suppose to be better? And why does X-ray comes out with so many variances of buggies? I would think people wouldnt wane to buy this car because you will never have the latest.

Xray improves its models each year, so do most brands. Now it's been 4 years since the 808 came out and it's time for a new model. Just like most brands, 4 years/2 WC = new car.

But what's the differences between 808 and xb9? Are they similar like 808 2010 vs 2011 or completely different

I remember many years ago the 808 and xb8 luxury was out all at the same time. But I wasn't paying much attention to the differences at the time. This is why I ask.

blue shocks.... how RTResque of xray....



I am glad to hear they are redoing the shock and the suspension geometry. If they managed to solve the 808 bounce on jump landings I'll be back.

A steel antenna tube?
That sounds strange ...
Wouldn't that shield the antenna from the signal?
And wouldn't that break every time the car is on its lid?

I will believe it when I see it

Probably nothing the average driver would ever notice on the track...

Of course I'll probably buy one

LOL thats funny, probably half of it is true too, i remember laughing at the 2011 "new" stuff list too when xray posted it on their site....they had the "new optimized shock tower geometry" thing up there as a new feature.....and it was the exact same tower as the original 808, same with the arms metrials and stuff they said
what pisses me off the most about xray is what you were trying to convey in your post:flaming, each time they change just enough so it makes the previus version impossible to upgrade really...and yea...ill also guarantee a new bulkhead and bearing size for the diffs LOOOOL, it's like they got into the habbit of changing it and cant decide which version of other componies drivetrains they like the best i hope they dont, as i feel the 2011 solution works fine, but they prolly will. something that will definatly be n the new car is a new radio tray i guess...since reno runs his batteries in the front.

like staded by rfleck earlier......Reno wil help compete the cycle of the 808 to the Xshoogen 808.2b-R
