New from XRAY:
XRAY proudly presents the all-new XT8E conversion set. Based on the ultra-successful XT8 using the XT8E conversion you will be able to easily convert your nitro truggy into an electric powered truggy. The XT8E as such features all the finest parts and the high performance pedigree of the XT8.
Made in Europe.
Designed, developed, and fully manufactured in-house at the XRAY factory in Slovakia, Europe, using the most high-tech German & Swiss machines and premium European materials, crafted with XRAY's legendary attention to detail by our artistic production specialists. The XT8 is truly a masterpiece.
The XT8E is a typical XRAY: premium, professional, high-competition for the most demanding racers, developed with attention to the smallest details, and backed by premium service & support…a luxury masterpiece.
With attention to the smallest details and a mandate to simplify servicing of the car, the all-new XT8 features cross-platform compatibility to ensure you can use the same car platform for both nitro and electric powered version making it either XT8 or XT8E.
Using the XT8E conversion you can easily convert your XT8 into an XT8E in just few minutes.
The XT8E includes all necessary parts to easily convert your XT8 into XT8E.
Being responsible for R&D at the XRAY off-road division, I was actively involved in the XT8 project with the follow-up XT8 conversion that will allow you to swap your XT8 into XT8E. I can assure you that not even the smallest detail was overlooked.
With the huge amount of effort, time, and energy our R&D team put into the off-road platform development, you can be sure that the XT8 and XT8E are nothing less than the highest-competition, premium truggy capable of winning any race. You will be amazed by the superior handling and reliability of the new XT8.
XRAY XT8 Designer
XRAY has been a driving force in the 1/8 off-road car racing scene since the release of the first XB8, followed by the Truggy platform. Continuous development and evolution of the XRAY product line has led to ever-increasing performance, and the same success story follows the XT8 platform that was designed for an easy conversion into the XT8E. The craftsmanship, durability, and performance of XRAY kits have become legendary, and you will find all of the finest features in the XT8 platform. Be part of the family, live the heritage.
I designed and hand-made my first off-road cars back in 1986, and they dominated the racing scene thanks to unbeatable reliability and superior performance. Years later in 2004, we started our first mass-production XRAY XB8 platform based on our long-term experience & knowledge, followed soon thereafter by the XT8 truggy platform.
Since the release of the XT8 platform, we have continued our dedicated work of refining the platform to bring forth the latest improvements & innovations. With our focus on no-compromise performance, the XT8 has undergone a major platform upgrade to ensure the XT8 will stand out in the crowd and take you to the Winners Circle.

The XT8E is based on the ultra-successful XT8 which was developed with vast input and dedicated work by the entire racing team, with major influences and significant improvements incorporated by World Champion Ty Tessmann.
All the incorporated refinements on the XT8 were tested in “blood, sweat, and tears” in North America at various tracks…from fast packaged tracks, through destroyed bumpy tracks, to huge super-jump tracks… to ensure the XT8 would be the one to beat anywhere. The final result is an amazing, completely all-new XT8 & XT8E platform. Enjoy!
Designed in virtual reality using the world's most sophisticated CAD system, manufactured using the world's best machining & molding machinery, the XT8E achieves a level of perfection in all details that is second to none.
Choice of World Champions.
The XT8 & XT8E are built to the same standards of excellence that you would expect from all other XRAY platforms. It is one of the most responsive trucks that I have ever driven, and I simply love it. The XT8 has the agility of an 1/8 buggy but the stability of a truggy, acceleration is outstanding, and the drivetrain is extremely smooth and free.
I look forward to racing the new XT8E and having many successes at upcoming races. Please come to say hello if you see me at the track, I am always happy & willing to help.
