Default Xray Clones...

I was looking for a new inexpensive second car to run this summer. I have a T3 2012 and I was wondering what other chassis will share parts (arms, hub, etc.) with my Xray.

Let the Flaming Begin!!!

CSO One - Arms, chubs, knuckles from T2-T4 will all fit on the CSO One. I'm sure they just copied all of those parts. They look identical, just cheaper in price and quality.

you can always look at the spec-r either S1/S2 or the R1 pro-spec chassis. very good quality cars at a fraction of the price of the xray

also, guys have used xray parts on them when spec-r parts weren't available - used them without modification on some parts (knuckles)

Why not just stick to your t3/12?

The ARC R10 shares some parts also. I borrowed Xray steering components to get by once.

Valk, judging by the OP's first sentence, he wants a second car on a limited budget. A used T3 or T4 would probably be the best choice. I was just answering his question about clones though. The CSO car is extremely close to being a direct copy of an XRAY. Only a few differences (keyed bulkheads, different suspension mounts, etc)

Yeah the CSO shares the xray parts...it started off as an xray copy but with bigger bore shocks and individual mounting blocks like Tamiya, Yoko etc but now the v2 has some deveopment like the chassis, top deck, rear pully set up all for more flex and grip.
I run mine and win in our 21.5 turbo class(stock) and it out turns, and carrys more corner speed than the others and its strong as well so cant go wrong for the price and quality is just fine and you get more in the kit than the others.

The new RGT R2 pro is also a good/inexpensive car...

I'm sure whatever you buy you can convert all arms, hubs, knuckles to Xray if you felt like you 'need' to. Most cars are so close you can pretty much shim anything to work on anything as long as you do it on both sides of the car.

I'd vote Spec-R

I'm not looking for a chassis that I can "convert" into an Xray. I was looking for an inexpensive option that shares common parts with the T3 that I already have. Taking a new chassis and throwing different parts on it seems like a waste of time and money.

BTW...Thanks for the opinions that have been offered. I am leaning toward the CSO-ONE.

Default RGT 2

The RGT2 is the best car for your pound at only 240 in the UK and great quality. All the suspension parts from the xray will fit with the exception of the shocks.
