Not so sure if they going to complete the package, but I also had the opportunity to drive the xray GT prototype twice. Came in 3rd at floyd bennett sweep challenge and 5th at the last race. Car was easy to drive and is very promising. Car handle very well. My friend speedy did a lot work on that xray GT car. Looking forward to running that GT car again next season.

there a few guys out there that are running the 1/8th off road converted to on road. The older version and newer version. Rino - Speedy - and one other I am aware of. Rino is the only factory sponsored driver running one at this time that I am aware of. And he would be the best source of information for a converted off road xray to on road GT.

XRAY factory has no intentions of putting out a factory Xray on-road GT at this time. They are working on other things.

So rumor is BS!

I've been working in my own GT conversion of an XRAY XB9 with the help of RC America and some racers that converted their XRAYs buggys into GTs before me. I am building a couple of cars for friends in South America right now and while doing this I'm taking pictures and doing templates of the things that need to be modified. It is very simple and easy to do. I have received emails and PMs regarding this in the past but I had no time to document everything. I will be replying with this information as soon as Im done with this conversions.

I would like to thank: RC America, Kevco Racing, Alpha Tires Brazil, Murnan Modified and Bukupower for their support on this fun project.

Aja I have built 2 XB9,s as well as the XB808 so with all the bugs worked out this summer should be alot of fun



With the Xrays doing so well last year and winning at homestead RC America may have to reconsider

GT racing should be GREAT THIS SEASON

Is it spring yet
