We understand that Juraj Hudy of Xray attended the 4WD class at the 2012 Off-road Euros with an as yet unreleased car; the talk on the track suggests a 4WD XRAY buggy! To everyone’s disappointment Juraj ran a Durango during his first practice heat, however switching to the ‘unnamed buggy’ later in the day while running a plain unbranded all white body.
Neo Buggys people did manage to sneak a peek or two and tell us that the car looks production-ready, with an aluminium chassis, and an internal layout similar to that of the AE B44 buggy. The gearboxes look quite big, potentially suggesting an option of gear diffs as well as ball diffs, the car also has a carbon fibre top deck, incorporating some of the flex technology seen on other XRAY cars. Further details and of course photos have yet to be released, join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter!
From the two exterior photos we've seen, its clear that XRAY have based many of the features of their 10th scale on it's larger 8th scale cousin - an area where XRAY have had much success, and immediate results with the release of the XB9 earlier this year. Its clear that XRAY have designed the front end with kick up, which should help handling on European tracks which are not usually as smooth as some of the American ones. The body Juraj is using appears to be a Yokomo one and looking very closely on the left side of the car (right in the photo), you'll notice a very small HUDY logo - this may be a servo horn indicating a laydown position. As mentioned before though, the package looks well thought out, and the lack of visible prototype parts all hint towards a production-ready project.
