Post subject: Re: New 1/8th Electric Kit for 2013?Posted: Wed Mar 27, 2013 13:29:43


Thank you all for your patience and ongoing support. The new 1/8 electric off-road and 1/8 nitro truggy have been in progress. At this moment it is impossible to provide any exact dates as some major changes are in progress which require new moulds, modifications of existing moulds and all this requires a lot of time. We have been working on and as soon there will be some news we will share with you.



Most of us have seen the photos of Reno's truggy at the Dirt with the XB9 tray and guards. It still looked to have the XT8 c-hubs and steering setup. So it may still be a wait if they are still designing new arms and such... But at least they are testing it

Cant wait for this one

From what I hear, it will have some XB9 items incorporated, but I don't think suspension arms/knuckles will change much if at all. We will see when they make the announcement though. I know there was quite a bit of input from the US drivers on the truck, so it should be good!

I really hope they do change the arms. My latest setup with the 16deg carriers and '13 knuckles is so good it's almost cheating

According to Brano Bulko's reply on the Xray forum "The new XT9 should be available within few weeks"

Come on already, waiting for this to come out... I really do hope they release an electric version of it as well.

I seriously hope they update the arms on the truggy, as they are not as durable as the xb9 ones.

The same arms in the hard plastic compound would be good.
I had great success with some carbon arm stiffeners I made
