“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
With XRAY’s uncompromising design philosophy bringing everything together to make the best GT nitro car, the GTX8 has the unique XRAY character, born of precision craftsmanship, highest attention to detail, and using only the finest quality materials.
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 GTX8 is truly a masterpiece.
Before I started racing off-road cars, I was actively professionally racing 1/5 scale on-road cars and I won 2x a European Championship. In my position as R&D Designer at XRAY, I was very happy to be involved again with an on-road project where I could bring my prior experience to the table.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my involvement in this new GT project, and I strongly believe this class will rapidly gain popularity due to its simplicity, easy handling, and great fun. I will continue to support the ongoing development of this new platform, and will be available to support all XRAY customers.
