Default TLR 8ight-X 2.0

Well I saw two on ebay today, so I guess it's time. Surprised 2.0 is how they named it TBH. Going to pick one up and see how it compares to the elite.
Truggy battery tray and motor mount, looks like a lot of the XT design crossed over to be honest, including the dual type parts. The ebay listing was $599, so I wonder if that's the retail price.

The kits were probably already in the distribution chain when the teaser photo was put out.

If someone chooses to put one of them on ebay, its shouldnt come as a surprise. Probably someone who knows someone who runs a hobby shop, and got the shipment early, so they can be ready for launch day. But they put it on ebay. So what?

x2. The kits have already been delivered. Stores are just sitting on them with a NDA and 'cant sell until' clause.

Well dang, prob gonna be a $800 kit with plastic carriers and hubs with a bunch of useless parts left over depending which way you build it. Still excited but was hoping it wasn't going this route...

Well if Horizon manages to trace the source, Iím pretty sure that shop will likely lose their account over this.

From the FB page. New blocks. No more offset diff (truggy style now). New spindles. New ackerman arms...
