What else can we do until they release more info/pics.

The last video released could have been about literally any new car produced. It gave zero details.

No one is ever going to push anything even remotely negative about their new products.

Donít get me wrong, Xray makes quality products with great support. But they market just like Apple claiming innovation when they really just tweaked (but made substantial improvements on) existing ideas, making everything flashy and bright too ok distract from this, and when there are real issues in design(T4-20 bumper/chassis, top deck w/ motor rub), itís the end users problem to correct, they made no errorÖ So when they make videos like they did, it invites mockery.

But hey, it got everyone talking, and that was the true goal. Congrats xray. Congrats

IMO that video unfortunately was really kinda useless. We learned absolutely nothing useful about the car (yes, yes, except that it's easy to drive) And so yes, I will continue to mock them for stuff like that. But not out of spite or hatred or anything like that. I'm still a big(!) fan of Xray's products and that is not going to change anytime soon. But I am not a die-hard Fanboy who agrees with everything they do. However, I will very likely praise them for their final presentation, when it's out. They have - in my personal opinion - the very best internet product presentations in the whole RC industry - at least the best I know. And I am still very curious about the new car. Not quite excited, but definitely curious. And it's quite likely that I will end up buying it (presuming that I like it - also quite likely.)

Iíve never liked these drawn of releases of vehicles. I remember more then a few on the basher side just turned in name calling, to be polite. I get the idea that the long, slow delay is supposed to generate interest. But it never seems to work they way.

Yep. We could continue guessing / discussing what the X4's design is going to be or what we are hoping for.
This thread needs split into "Discussion about the X4" and "I hate XRAY's marketing department" threads.

None of it makes any sense... The ones pissing and moaning, also even taking shots are acting like babies. Last time I checked XRAY is marketing their own brand and business, not yours...

I canít wait to see whatís coming!

Be glad then that you aren't in the market for a new Tesla Roadster.

A little more insight into the rear suspension. The attachment of the lower control arms is visible. Seems to be similar to the MTC2.
No front upper control arms can be seen through the glass.

Phew, seems they haven't copied my h2e five suspension design I wonder though why no new car design seems to focus on rear chassis overhang... Same issue with the MTC2. Dragging under power?

TA08 has solved this issue on the rear 😉

The rear chassis overhang isn't really an issue, my chassis doesn't have many scratches there. Most of the scratching is on the nose of the chassis or on the sides where it rolls.

I like how the T4 '20 and up aluminum chassis have chamfered sides.

IMHO, all the random babble until XRay decides to pull back the curtain is all in good fun and nothing Iíve never seen before hereÖ Speculation is always fun (as are the off the wall comments), just as long as no one insults anybody.
