a nitro powered xbr16 would be a better christamas present ...

Great to see Xray catering to the novice or beginners.

So would I, if it was free!
From the limited views, it looks good.
However, I just don't see spending the money that thing thing will be on a "fun" car. I can only assume the price, but with it being nitro and in limited supply.....
Cha ching!
I also agree with everybody else, I would definitely spend my money on a 1/10th nitro or 1/12th Xray car. I know 1/12th is a dead horse on "new" technology but you never know!

Looks like the Mini Gas idea was not an X-ray original. These pics look like it is a production model. Ok, so it is not a 1/18, but 1/16th is pretty close!

Default I predict this car will be insanely popular

You heard it here first!

I think this car will be the nitro equivalent of the Mini-T s success.
If it is reasonbly priced, reliable and easy to tune/maintain; it is going to be a big hit. I think their may be a good chance many of us will be racing these next summer.

In general are smaller engines a little easier for novices; i.e. fewer problems tuning, maintaining, adjusting?
I know, difficult without seeing it or any real details being released.
