I'm looking forward to this. My son runs a T1FK05 and it does well enough for him that he doesn't really need to go to a T2. I've resisted getting in to touring cars with him because of the cost. My T1M just can't compete against the tenth scalers. This might push me over the edge to finally try it.

Hopefully they won't take out too much other than the chassis and CF bits, since I would be replacing the Xray chassis anyways, this kit would be cheaper overall.

It'll be interesting to see how many (if any) new racers are introduced to this hobby with both this T2R and Cyclone S on the horizon.

Most manufacturers now produce kits that need parts upgrades(thats where the money is)

guys the quality of the t2r will be the same as the t2, thats the xray way. take a closer look at the pick above, 95% chance thats the car itself.

I love how Xray always says they have a new car coming soon and then don't release any information at all for another few weeks. At least when we saw the TA05 and the Cyclone S, those companies offered a little info on the cars, and even (heaven forbid) a pic of it. The car in the pic is obviously a T2 missing some parts. If the car in the pic were the T2R, it would not cost any less than the T2. The cost saving comes in eliminating the carbon fiber and aluminum parts (and Xray's favorite, the spring steel), which the car in the pic is chock full of, unless they've found a way to magically produce them at half the price. My guess is that it will be a plastic tub version of the T2 and still cost too much, but people will buy it just because it's Xray. So, when does the next disappointingly unoriginal and gravely overhyped car come out? What's next? Tub chassis RDX? Tamiya Evo 6? That rear motor JRX-S?

xray is annoucing the T2R now as the cyclone S is coming out these days.
It is commercially a good way to have people consider holding their purchase, undercutting the competitor, at least for a while.
This is a normal business practice, there s nothing wrong with that.

When you look at the price of the cyclone S and the price of the T1R "back then", they are really competitive cars for an excellent price... and the price difference was significant. I m all for it.

With the current currency rate, the Cyclone S costs less than 120USD. I would love to see an Xray for that cheap, but I seriously doubt it. Then again, the Cyclone S is nowhere near the quality of the full versions, and I don't know what the specs on the Xray T2R are going to be like.

If the T2R isnt going to be substancially cheaper they are wasting there time on a marketing scam

Nah. That's a full T2 in the pic. Take a close look at the drawing he is working on. It is a tub style chassis.
