XRAY XB8E 2018 Spec Luxury 1/8 Electric Off-Road Buggy Kit
Extremely well designed vehicle. Parts quality is second to none. This latest edition has improved an already proven platform and made a durable, easily adjustable, and easy to drive 1/8th buggy. Replacement parts seem to be expensive but the need to replace parts on this car is rare.
