A few notes to add on the differences between the T2R and T2:

* The chassis is made of FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic) instead of CF (Carbon Fibre)
* The wheel hubs are composite, instead of aluminum
* The layshaft for the T2R is solid, unlike the T2's lightened layshaft
* The multi-diff/diff aluminum & spring steel components have been replaced with another material (waiting for confirmation of the material type)

It's ok though, the BMI replaces all those anyways.

According to Xray's site the diffs are externally adjustable and come with carbide balls and thrust bearing. The driveshaft and turnbuckles are still made out of Hudy Spring Steel.

t2r wil be a very good car for rubber im pretty sure!! like people who run outside rubber this car is the one to get! you dont have to get liek stiffer uper deck or ticker chassis and its fiber glass so you dont really care if yu scrath the chassis also whit the same flex technologie !!

this car is a first good car if someone want to join the RC World!!

Well done Xray!!

It's also great for carpet guys since you would be replacing the chassis anyways.

That is correct. The wheel axles are also Hudy Spring Steel.

One other item of note is that the T2R does not include aluminum stands for the top deck.

What is so great about having some alum diff outdrives? Wouldn't plastic be better for stock racing? But anyways this might be my ticket into on-road racing.

plastic outdrives are not such a bad thing.i run the origional cyclone with the delrin rear outdrives.i run a brushless 4.5 all the time and there are no signs of wear at all.i like them and will not change to aluminum because there really is no need and the plastic is lighter.

Are replacement parts gonna be expensive? Since my LHS doesn't support this car, I'd definitely get a few extra front and rear lower suspension arms. Our outdoor track is a pretty good size, and sudden stops in/on the wall just "happen" in racing...hehe

so the t2r is an ok car for stock or spec racing? from what I understand the only real thing to do to is put alu stands on. I mainly only club race on carpet with a tc4 team kit so Im just wondering if this would be a good car for someone in my situation.
