I am very much interested in this car, however I do not know anything about electric tc. I have heard good things. Please advise....
Well lipo is more on the "bashing" side, but it's getting bigger in racing.

- they did not add the alu shocks they just announced so the same old plastic comes in the kit

Last time I checked plastic parts are cheaper than alu parts... I'm not questioning if those are better or not for the application but they are easier and cheaper to manufacture for sure.

I'm just guessing here but I think one reason why xray went with the plastic is the ridiculously low minimum weight EFRA came up with for the 5 cell (1350 grams). They are trying to shave off every gram they can...

The US version may not fit the 4800 Orion (23mm thick) but the 5000 maxamps (18mm thick) should not be a problem... . I think it is Kokam's turn to come up with a thinner LiPo cell design in the 4800 capacity range.

• Both suspension arms feature incorporated anti-roll bar mounts, with rear arms featuring two different anti-roll bar mounts for super-fine adjustment of anti-roll bar; EU Edition includes both front and rear 1.2mm anti-roll bars

According to Xray website it does seem like the T2-008 will come with the new alum shocks...they have a whole section on them- they are shorter, and seem to come with the kit. They dont seem to say its an option part.

I believe the kit will come standard with the composite body shocks.

Overall, it seems a great upgrade. But is just me that finds the plastic outdrives non sense?
Im sure blades are cheaper than outdrives, and i dont think the outdrives will last much in in mod...

Sure, optional metal outdrives will be released, but why not make them standard?

Those optional outdrives won't be cheap. You can count on that.

Ya, me as well! These guys haven't even tried the car yet with the composite out drives and are complaining about them. Maybe they wont be awesome for mod but I know for stock and 19 they will be dialed.

The out drives looked as if they possibly had a metal ring around them which should help strengthen them.

Me too, believe me. But given that said i dont think it is possible to make plastic outdrives that last in mod, at least with this cvd design.

Even the current spring steel outdrives will wear out fast if you run them without blades. In any case, no point arguing about this. The future will tell.
