I see this car being very popular with the guys who run the BMI chassis. As far as the composite diffs go I wouldn't be surprised to see Stock racers running these in the rear. I know I'm gonna give it a try

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
I'll always be the first to admit I was wrong. That's a lot better than being a gloating know-it-all.

Default Comparison T2 versus T2R

I am currently running an FK05 but looking to upgrade to the T2 next year.

Based on the information available, could any of you current T2 users or anybody else knowledgeable do a side by side comparison.

I'm not asking for details, but just the basic stuff that jumps out right at the get go.

Looking forward.

Don

The diffs are not covered with the dust covers and probably they are not adjustable from the outside. In exchange they are lighter (less rotating mass). Of course there is no CFC component in the car but other than that it is the same as the T2. As somebody stated before this is the best deal for those who are looking at changing the T2 CFC to some BMI stuff...

Is this basic enough for you???

Thumbs up Excellent

Thats great info. I noticed the Carbon Fibre bit when looking at the two cars. What is the T2R chassis and parts made of exactly? Look fiber glass-ish to me.

So basically to compare the T2 you'd have to put a T2 kit versus a BMI upgrade package plus two diffs plus a T2R. In the end it might be cheaper just to get a T2.

What is the BMI kit used for exactly, carpet or asphalt. We run outdoors on asphalt hence the question.

Default side by side

I ended up doing a side by side by actually opening two instances of the Team Xray website and going thru the descriptions of the T2 and T2R literally side by side in the windows.

Some parts seem lightened as well (Layshaft).

Default It would have been nice to see....

the same outdrives but in molded version. Buying aluminum outdrives for $60 a pop, is not customer friendly. It would be nice if Xray would release a set like on a Pro 4 with retaining collars. With more and more knock offs hitting the market this would be nice featured part at a reduced price. Just my 2 cents. The "R" is a good move by Xray, with an AE car hitting the market in the near future.
