The MBX6T will share most of the parts from the MBX6 (just like how the MBX5T was to the MBX5R). It will have longer arms, longer drive shafts, longer chassis, different ratio ring & pinion for the taller truggy tires, will come with ProLine MT tires here in the US. It will have steel turnbuckles and graphite shock towers like the MBX6 with available Ti option turnbuckles and aluminum option shock towers. The other MBX6 hop up parts will also fit the MBX6T (alum axles, center joint cups, front upper arm support, rear hubs, etc). It shares the same center diff, radio tray, diff cases and diffs (ecept for the R&P), axles, F&R uprights, shocks, sway bars, motor mount, etc. New stiffer rate springs will be available (in black like the MBX6 springs) and a larger tank will be on the 6T.

You really don't need pictures to know what it is going to look like. Just look at any MBX6....LOL

Expect the street price to be not much more than the MBX6 (truck tires cost more).

$600 seems cheap for the initial launch, I bet it will cost more. Even the Losi 2.0 costs more than $600. I can't imagine the Mugen coming in less than $700, at least at first.

MSRP on the MBX6 is like $960 but no one sells kits at full retail (at least not in the US...LOL ). The street price on the MBX6 is around $510-525. I'd suspect that the MBX6T will not be much more.
