The 808 throws down a challenge for you to drive itâ€¦ race itâ€¦ win with it. Answer the callâ€¦ take the challenge. Experience a new form of fascination, undreamed-of driving enjoymentâ€¦ performance and dynamic ability you can count on. Experience the all-new XRAY 808.
Since 2004 when XRAY released the first 1/8 off-road car, the XRAY XB8 platform has enjoyed great success both on and off the track. Praised by the RC press and media, as well as customers themselves, the XB8 platform has been the recipient of several Car-of-the-Year awards. Along with numerous National titles around the world â€“ including the most prestigious European Champion title â€“ the XB8 has been one of the worldâ€™s most successful off-road cars.
Balanced load distribution creates outstanding driving dynamics and excellent track stability, making the car super-easy to drive in any racing condition â€“ no matter if you drive on flat fast track, bumpy technical track, or sky-high jumps â€“ the 808 is the new form and level of performance.
Loaded and equipped with premium high-tech materials and engineering throughout â€“ all-new suspension and geometry; improved oversized shocks; optimized and centralized weight balance; all-new drivetrain concept â€“ the 808 is easy to drive and control, making it a top performer under all racing conditions. Imagine overtaking maneuvers that are a thrill thanks to the precision controllability at your disposalâ€¦ and response so fast and precise that you think your mind is directly connected to the car. Squeeze the throttle for the first time and you will immediately experience what the carâ€™s looks only hint at.
The all-new chassis was completely redesigned following the all-new weight distribution and centerline placement of internal parts for improved side-to-side weight balance. To obtain better stability, the chassis was elongated and along with the new suspension concept the front of the chassis is angled 10Â°.
The chassis is CNC-machined from high-quality Swiss 3mm 7075 T6 hard-anodized aluminum, and is strategically machined in low-stress areas to make it as light as possible without affecting strength or rigidity. The chassis is hard anodized at XRAYâ€™s own in-house fully robotic hardcoating line, ensuring a perfect hardcoated surface.
Non-essential material below the engine, fuel tank, and diffs was removed to allow for the lightest weight and lowest possible center of gravity.
The downstop setscrew area was greatly reinforced. All screw holes on the bottom of the chassis are countersunk, allowing for a very smooth chassis underside with no protruding screw heads.
Strong composite side guards help protect the internal components.
All-New Suspension The most significant handling improvement was achieved by an all-new suspension components and geometry. The suspension concept was carried over from 1/10 electric off-road cars â€” redesigned and adapted for 1/8 off-road, incorporating XRAYâ€™s innovative ideas, and reducing the size of the components used. The suspension geometry was fine tuned to give the car super-easy handling in all racing conditions.
