Description

The GTX8 is an all-new 1/8 luxury nitro GT car based on the XRAY’s European Championship-winning XB8 off-road car. Sharing many high-performance parts the GTX8 incorporates all the finest details to achieve a state of perfection.

The GTX8 is typically XRAY–premium, professional, high competition R/C car for the most demanding racers, developed with attention to the smallest details and backed by premium service & support…a luxury masterpiece.

“I designed and hand-made my first off-road cars back in 1986, and they were dominating the races thanks to unbeatable reliability and best performance. Years later in 2004 we have started our first mass production XRAY XB8 platform based on our long-term experiences, knowledge, and R&D expertise gained over decades, taking over the heritage I brought with me.

Using the XB8 platform we have worked with the XRAY R&D team to create the finest and highest performing GT nitro car and I am happy that we continue to carry the legacy of my first off-road cars into this new platform in order to take you to the Winners Circle.”

Dipl. Eng. Juraj Hudy
XRAY Chief Designer
