Now we are just happy if we get a set of wheels with it. Most onroad kits dont come with bodies either. So a race kit without a body isnt very shocking to me, Just out of the norm for off road.
On a post on Tessmans Facebook he said that the North American kits will come with a body which is exclusively distributed by RC America

That wouldn't be a good idea. If it is anything like past truggy offerings from XRay, there are not many bodies that will fit. They tend to use weird body post placement etc.

Xt8 2017 version uses a c hub which looks like the first xray buggy. It is not the same as the xb808.
