xray is the slowest company i have seen coming out with new cars, the t2 platform was in r and d for 10 months the nitro buggy over 1 year, Xray designs a platform car then improves the chassis, unlike othe manufactures who design and build a new car every other month to keep up, xray then offers a upgrade to the latest design, are the expensive, shure are, are the worth it, every penny.

I don't understand, everyone knew last year that another car would be out this year. Some people bought the 007, some didn't. It will be the same this year, some will buy it some won't. DEAL WITH IT!! My personal opinion; I wish they would make a 4 wheel offroader.

Um slim, hold your britches and cool your jets. Unless you have been living under a rock, we arent talking about different scales. We are talking about the on-road cars. Every year for the last 7 YEARS, they have come out with a new on road touring car. YES, it took them a hot minute to go 1/8th scale off-road and YES it took them forever to go nitro, but as far as electrics, when they got from behind Serpent, they have hit the market every year without fail with a new whip. No one is saying that arent worth it, but how many times can you put "this is the ultimate" on something before it starts to read as bullshit? And at those prices? They claim the most adjustable, they have the multi-flex, they have low CG, they have diff access, they have top quality parts...what else can they do???? How about re-generating parts that mold after breaking and make the necessary tweaks.....during a race?!?!? And snow, what other car manufacturer comes out with a car every month? HPI/Hot Bodies comes out in spaces of who wins a big race (or every two years), Corally, once every two years or so, Schumacher, whenever the need hits em, Team Associated 6 years from TC3 to TC5...Yokomo, when do they come out with something new.....Losi, 3 years. So, you were saying?

it will either be:
T2'008 followed by the T2'008 EU and the T2'008 US later this summer
or T3

but either way, it will be a tenth faster.

If it built to fit an Orion 4800 right out of the box, without shimming or grinding anything, I'd buy it.
