Team XRAY Nuremberg news wrapup

The biggest new item from XRAY at the Toy Fair was their prototype 1/8 scale brushless truggy, the XT8E.  They were characteristically tight-lipped about specs, features, release timeframe, and cost at this early point, but it should be a cool new entry in a rather small segment.  Being XRAY, the XT8E is sure to be an all carbon fiber race-bred [...]
