Wow, Mr Hudy sure is a skilled draftsman. Those prints look almost like they were computer generated.

whether you are kidding or never seen any exploded drawing printouts or both of them its yours,
I believe Mr. Hudy is more than draftsman he is a design engineer that made his own nitro car chassis since 70's

Regardless of what it is, look closely, you will see a tub chassis.

After the 411 article, do the drawings in the previous pics STILL look like a tub?

You guys: "Uhhh....uhhhh....i see a tub car on the drawings" You can't see shit on those drawings from those pics....LOL

On the T2R Specs
Externally-adjustable front and rear differential made from special high strength composite. Aluminum collar to prevent the diff outdrives from spreading.
Take a close look @ the pics....plastic diffs

That's really impressive, and they didn't take too much off from the T2 kit. So far the differences are:
* CF chassis/shock towers - composite chassis parts
* Metal diffs - plastic outdrives
* alum hex hubs and servo mounts - plastic

anything else?

Hex hubs and servo mounts will be composite.

Yeah, that's what I meant by CF chassis and shock towers.
It's ok though, the BMI replaces all those anyways.

A tub chassis would cost more than a fiber glass to produce. I do not think they had a tub in mind at all.

My son will like this one for christmas.
