Now - it's true I'd heard some negatives about the old M18T, so I was quite sceptical as to what Xray could really do to the car - would the 'PRO' be a mere collection of cheap 'bling' parts that added naught but weight and price? I was, I confess, instantly impressed by the thorough write-up by Juraj Hudy, the brainchild behind Xray & of course HUDY. Now talking up a car is one thing, but Juraj went through a step-by-step of exactly how they improved the car - stopping short of pointing out the flaws in the previous car, but giving an impressive account of just why the new one is improved.
Probably the biggest change is an additional 16mm length in the dual-deck carbon fibre chassis - that would be a big change in any car, but one of this size it's nothing short of huge (and goes to show just how short the original car was). The extra length should in theory give the car added stability and make it easier to race - fast.
Whilst the original car sported plastic drive shafts to all four wheels - the M18T Pro features universal shafts made from the renown Hudy spring steel, which should handle any power you could possibly strap into the little car.
