Looks great. Wonder what the price will be? I know someone mentioned around $200 but i cant see it that low. Probably more like $299 or somewhere in the range that it is cheaper for you to buy the T2R but not so cheap to buy a T2R and hop it up and still be less than the T2. My bet is $299.

The price is 199 in Europe, so around 250USD.

Unless you are running carpet, you most likely won't need the posts. I personally wouldn't use a battery strap, as it's another tweak source to worry about and there is enough weight on the battery side as it is. A good roll of tape should only cost you about $10 and it will last a long time.

The only drawback for using the car as is, is the diffs. I believe that in mod diffs wont last long. Other than that it's another high quality car from Xray

I never thought a battery strap would tweak the chassis. Im just a little over protective with my car and everything in it. I just dont want the battery to fall out and rip off the speedo wires. But that tape bonds to itself verywell so Ill rethink the battery strap. And yes I do run on carpet. I was thinking about it and I think the regualar t2 would be far better for carpet racing because of the less flex in the carbon fibre. So the t2 would be a far better investment in the long run.

Have you tried the diffs that will come with the T2R?

* 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)
__________________________________________________ _______________________________

Looking at that i must say this car packs much more value in it then the T1RAYCER did for sure. For the outdoor stock/19t racers this car will be hooked up,FRP will give it the flex and you wont cry after a days scrapping on the track. Wheel hubs comp instead of alloy? LOL who cares i raced for years with my TC3's with comp, solid layshaft extra rotating mass ok thats a negative but its minor upgrade if needed. The diffs being comp outdrives would be perfect for stock/19T racing. This car may be the better pick for many racers. IF the price stays low.


As for the upgrade to BMI side of things i guess its a matter of wether or not the BMI is actually the hot ticket for carpet racing is it really better then all the technology built into the T2 chassis. Would the cost of a T2R+BMI be less then or more then a T2? IF more the BMI better alot better.

The RRP for the UK will be 139.99, looks like an extremely good value car to me! When the T1R first came out it was 220!

i think that you will see many drivers using the plastic diffs in stock for sure, and maybe many using them in mod also..
