The RX8 2018

Based on its ultra-successful predecessor, XRAY proudly presents the RX8 which incorporates the latest improvements and refinements gathered by the team, race-proven in high-competition races around the world.

2018 All-new Features:

  • Redesigned chassis features larger front window opening for improved forward traction
  • Redesigned chassis with unique, innovative front flex adjustment using an insertable aluminum brace. Using the aluminum brace increases steering response and cornering speed; without the aluminum brace, the car is easier to drive
  • Redesigned adjustable weight position on both sides of the chassis for quick & easy weight balance adjustment
  • Redesigned rear layshaft bulkheads allow use of bracket bushings to connect the layshaft bulkheads with rear bulkheads to reinforce the entire rear suspension, giving improved handling especially in high-traction conditions.  Without the bracket bushings, the car has more traction; recommended for low-traction conditions. The new bulkhead design also allows installation of a top graphite brace
  • Redesigned rear aluminum bulkheads
  • Redesigned graphite brace for rear layshaft is part of the rear suspension Multi-Flex Technology
  • Redesigned graphite holders for rear upper arm have new positions – lower & more inside – for increased traction and improved durability
  • Redesigned rear aluminum suspension holders have new position for the rear arms – more inside – for increased traction
  • Redesigned steel extensions for suspension arms have a new position to work better with new rear aluminum suspension holders
