+1, although 008 had a bunch of changes so I guess they wouldn't do a big overhaul every year... sux to be them in that regard because they just redid all the bulkheads last year and now they have to put spacers under them for lipos. It's good to see them throwing in a bit more kit though e.g. sway bars

oh I thought the sway bars were listed as a new feature, looks like its just a highlight along with "Most parts are fully compatible with the T2008"

I thought that too, I guess all the other colours are taken (sometimes twice e.g. blue, red) and they're gambling on serpent going under

I would have said it was more of a "gold" colour, much in keeping with how Xrays hold their value...

No multidiff as standard and no alloy outdrives for the front spool, was this the same with the 008? The Orange looks nice, although, only two manufacturers have the the right to use orange and that is Serpent & Corally as they are Dutch (orange is the national colour).

Love this description for carbon spacers "LiPo pack ready with the use of unique graphite pads that raise the top deck to fit popular-sized LiPo battery packs"

well, a 4900 trackpower fits into an 008 no problems at all, without mods & without the use of an after market tray...

Yes Andrew, it was the same on the 08, though you can use a FK05/T2/T2 007 multi diff in an 08 so long as you use the 50mm axles (007) as the 08 axles are 52mm

From what I can see, it comes with the black drive shafts. It does make mention that the hubs will also support the ECS driveshafts.
