XRAY XT9 1/8 Luxury Racing 4WD Off-Road Truggy Kit
This truggy is one of the best handling rc cars i've driven. The chassis is very well developed for truggies - not just an upsized buggy chassis and it is fast, high quality, and after a gallon of abuse, no real signs of wear/damage. Wouldn't hesitate to buy again - Highly recommended.)

Looks like my TIX Devolopments chassis. To bad Xray took this long to release a new truck. The racers are already years ahead of this new truggy.)
