Honestly, its quite of a anti climax after all the hype.

Just talking about looks of the car. I think the Motonica RS is the nicest looking car, then the mugen X5.

The RX8 maybe more functional and etc, but in terms of looks, pretty boring.

No shocks no suprizes as promised
Looks a good solid car, I'm sure it will do very well, but unfortunetly xray will never get my money, I like manufactures to push the envelope of design, not just make it stick down better n have nice square edges

I'll wait to get shot down now

Ha, if you don't tell me, I will say it is a 4. This proves what I believe, a good re-engineering. Poor, poor, poor.
My 4 can be un-retired.
again, what is the next proven platform for the touring?

After seeing the real pics, I'm still a little disappointed. Looks like an evolution of a MRX4 and a P81.

Good luck to the xray team.

Shocks are aluminum Phil just like the NT1 but may also come with the plastic bodies on a tree like the nt.

Nice features on the car. It looks like the successor of the MRX4X. If they would write "X-Ray RX8" on the Mugen MRX-5 and MRX5 on the X-ray I would think that's for real

On thing I don't like on the x-ray: Looks like there is no quick change option for the belts...

Say what you want to say...

The RX8 is by far the cleanest design I have seen in a long time... Why go with complicated designs when something simple can do??

Look at how complicated the floating radio tray is on the Capricorn and Mugen... and Xray does it with two simple inserts...

You may have x100 innovative things... But they may or may not work at the end... I just look at the MTX5, and I am disgusted by the complexity of the car... It does have some nice features, but other things, Robert just went over the top complicating it...

Choisan, if you have nothing but trolling to share, go some place else.

Look at all your posts...

"Poor this, poor that".. "Re-engineered"... "I guess I can use my 4..."..

If that ain't trolling, I don't know what is.

This is an open forum of course... But if you are just on here to bash on something, go bash on your mugen threads...

I really like the car, very close to motonica in itīs design.

One thing I donīt like are the screws not being countersunk in the radio plate.

But as I said itīs very close to motonica in design with xray quality and that is a proven fact.

Meh, just like every other class on the market, they all look the same in principle. I just know which ones are the most simple to work on and have consistent results to back it up.

This thing looked like a blown up NT1 to me. Where I don't see any similarities is it won't have the rat's nest hanging off of the receiver side like every other car.

Riketsu, best thing to do with trolls is ignore them (unless you're JACK HAMMER and just make the same post twice to get seen). They wouldn't go into the XRAY pits and say it looks like such-and-such car, they will sit behind their keyboard and use their lack of racing/engineering/developing experience make them look like fools.

Have some class, guys.........Nevermind, this is the internet.
