Almost everyones' opinions will be biased. Both are great cars. Run which one you like and feel you can get parts better for.

I'm having Deja Moo, the distinct feeling that I've read this bull before.

I'm sure that the RDX is a good car, but if it was so great, why didn't everyone jump onto it's bandwagon back when it was released?
IMO, the T2 is a new platform and in need of some testing to find out it's best set-ups. This is something that people are either not able to figure out or unwilling to dedicate the time. I'd be interested in seeing the reviews after the T2 has been out as long as the RDX to this point.

I like my RDX because it is easy to make a setup change (you can feel what the changes did on the car), how smooth and quiet the car is, how much support I get from the Team Corally guys, making small changes to the design of the cars dynamics, how easy it is anymore for getting parts, alot of setups for the car on Corally's website that are good and not too mention Corally has I would have to say the HOTTEST chick driver! I can't say anything bad about the XRAY T2 as I have never drove one, but after driving this car I don't feel the need to. It fits all of my likings.

If I were going to buy an electric sedan right now, I would go with the RDX. It is an awesome car. The T2 right now just seems to have too many small issues that would steer me away from it.

From what I've seen, most Xray FK05 and T2 owners here are so pleased with their cars. Xray cars are so tough that buying replacement/spare parts is the least option. They are indestructable!

Well, I had the choice not too long ago and chose RDX. Why? Because I figured I'd be doing most of my running on rubber tires and I never had a positive experience with an XRay on rubber tires (I had owned an FK04 and an FK05) If I had decided I would be running foam only, I may have gotten something different although I haven't given the matter of buying a car for foam racing any serious thought.

There are people who love the XRay on rubber tires but I am not one of them. Although the car was fast I just didn't have any fun driving it because I never really liked the way it handled. I like the RDX because it handles the way I think a car should, plus its fast.

RDX - I was an xray faithful for 3 years, but bought the corally to "try something different". I won't be going back.

Both cars are great and I don't think that the RDX is any faster than the Xray. But for normal joe drivers like myself that don't run the perfect line every lap and that can't hit the same lift point the RDX will be better.

To me its seems like when I go into a corner too hot I would scrub speed and lose 5 or 6 tenths with my Xray. When I make the same mistake with my RDX I only lose 2 or 3 tenths. For some reason the car just doesn't scrub speed like the others.

So if you are a perfect driver either will be fine I'm sure, but if you are like me and still are striving for perfect lines lap after lap I think the RDX will be better for you.
