am.. I call a car outdated, if the new car with the new options
is running much better and easier on the track too
in reverse, I never saw the 808/XB9 as a upgrade to the original XB8..
the skinny arms, the bending chassis, the 808 transmission.. no

Cade is correct. This is how you change the camber.

I think camber is a very important setup tool going from track to track.

If he needs to get to grips with his "new" XB8, are there changes from the prototype to the car he drives now? Is it not the protocar we have seen up until now that will be the XB8?

From watching the euros, it's seemed from video Ofcourse! That the xb9 lacked corner speed compared to the mp9 of ronnafelk n the mbx of battle.....so I'm sure they've tweaked the geometry to attempt to achieve this.......prob what Savoya is trying to get use to...n i bet the xray guy sitting in the top 10 is running the exact same car from the Euros!

I guess they run the euro cars with the new kit arms ?
longer chassis ?

French 6mik(French importer of Xray) driver, Lorenzo Crolla, is driving a XB8 too first time out and is doing good..

NEOBUGGY:
"In P3 a stunning performance from Austria’s Martin Wollanka – the new XRAY driver and VRC Pro fan excelling round IBR missing a 9 lapper by 0.03 secs. In 4th and 5th Riccardo Berton & Davide Ongaro – both drivers locking themselves in decent semi positions it would seem. Similarly Reno Savoya in 6th, he seems to be struggling slightly in the tyre wars, the compounds not quite suited for Padova’s chilly slick surface this time of year."

...as i wrote before, tyre wars... wollanka fast as hell with fx & xb8

Local Xray pro has been testing and getting his set up at our track. He's ripping. Says the car is much better than last car. Day one, low 28s... Day 2, high 26s.

It's got me thinking.....

Glad he got his buggy. We should have a dialed base setup by the time the production version hits RCA. I think I am more excited for this buggy than any model previous. I can't wait!
