Juraj Hudy spills the beans regarding the heavily gossiped Xray 1/10th electric buggy during his latest column…
After several months of round the clock work we were ready with the pre-production prototype of the all-new project with code named XB4. At this stage there are not many details to share, but I can say that I was more than happy with the initial handling and performance, and that I was able to confirm that the ideas we had conceptualized were successful. This means that production will get the green light for this project.
Completely new projects like the XB4 are always the most difficult and demanding, as we need to make all the moulds required for the new components (in this case, 25 all-new moulds were required). To be able to test the prototype we had to prioritize the production, build and complete first the moulds for components that could not be replaced or simulated using machined components. It was a very tight timeline to have the prototype ready for the Euros, but due to a strong effort in production we were able to make it on time. Now the rest of the molds are in progress with some more deadlines fast approaching. I will get in some more details about this project in an upcoming column.
We look forward to giving you the latest updates as and when we get it!
