Imitation is the best form of flattery! Throw a little innovation and call it yours. They first copied the Corally Platform and improved it now the copied the Tamiya platform and they will improve it. I personally like to K.I.S.S.

Improve?
Maybe some things are good with the Xray, but some other things are really crap in compare to Tamiya or HPI/Hotbodies. And they didnīt change on the new car.

Trust me...there are enough additional features to make it a different car

It's like 1/8 offroad buggies....superficially they almost all look identical....the differences are in the details...and I'm liking the details on the T2 just fine

Default about the T2 from xray

hiya folks,
ima currently torn between a cyclone, a refine2, RDX and now the T2 from xray.
ima more partial towards the cyclone and refine2( since i have experience with the 415)
why has xray not provided inboard vertical roll center adjustments like everyone else though?+scratch scratch+
or is it an evil marketing ploy to sell "upgrade" parts later?
even though i've been using tamiya( who are the king of evil hopup ploys) all this while. for once, please let the T2 be something like its predecessors.... run outta the box with NO hopups...
oh well.
-alexander

new 06 xray looks nice...hmmm..time for another new car...
NOT!

I do like the notched cam type diff belt tensioning than HB's octogonal shaped bearing holders that could be at times a pain to re-install...

you know the new xray looks nice not nicer thean my (our)cyclone but with xray it doesnt stop it like every 8 months there is a new car out with them this is why i like HPI/HOTBODIES they worked on a design that will be competitive for like 3-4 years like the pro 4 anyway good luck with all that and yeah be original for god sake that thing looks like cyclone/msx/rdx had an orgy and this came was the outcome i know i wont be getting one

Can anyone tell if the Titanium Racing CVDs really help improve the turning or is it mainly bling. Still can't justify spending $90.00 for a set.

They are very light and as strong as steel. The pin problem is that some units dog bone pin can drift over to one side. If this happens to your dog bone tap the pin out, apply green Loctite (Green is permanent) to the pin and tap it back in place. The pin will never move again.

The TiR dog bone should neither increase or decrease turning radius. They are just better replacements than the stock or optional HB units.

We sell them for $39.99 per pair in the US. We are waiting for a shipment from TiR for these right now.
