We have all paid retail for Xrays because of quality, durability, and how much support you can recieve. All touring cars on the market today are capable of being fast. They are not much different than each other. But, Xray does the little things that create a following like the above said. Dont hate!
Well said.

With the very good results of our XRAY USA team at races in the USA, winning the national races a few years in a row, we all worked very hard to achieve the very best result at the Euros. With preparation for the Euros I knew the areas of the car that needed improvement when it comes to high-competition racing with rubber tires, and as such after several months of very hard work and daily testing I am very happy that we have achieved the goal we set. The new prototype has showed to outperform the rest and we have not only closed the gap for performance on rubber tires but now I know we have raised the bar higher again. The team will continue its intensive testing and analysis under all different track conditions around the world, and we will make some final conclusions and decisions shortly.
I just read the above snippet from Team XRAY's Euro Champs report and was quite surprised at the statement that was made in blue. Given what I've come to understand of the XRAY R&D process, one might get the impression that the T2 '007 EU spec was an interim release to address some specific issues with the T2, but not really to the extent that the T2 '008 addresses them.

All of this R&D brings about an interesting dilemma from a company standpoint. As stated above, Juraj wants the Team drivers to test the new car on different tracks, but when it comes to releasing information about it, it's hard to keep the new changes a secret while the car is in public, unless you specifically tell everyone you're testing a new car - so you're going to expect them to keep things a secret.

I ran my pair of 007's on asphalt tonight, and they were awesome. Dialed. And between races I didn't touch a thing. They are brilliant cars, and I'm extremely glad that I bought them. Thank you Team Xray.

This thread, on the other hand, doesn't even deserve the title "Xray T2'008."

I dont plan on buying the 008, but Im interested to see what has been improved. I hope they some how addressed the rear lower shock rubbing with the inside of the wheel issue that does seem to be a major flaw. Other than that I have no problems what so ever.

That issue was fixed on T2 (and '007), what tires are you using? I only noticed the front lower ball joints rubbing a little when using the outside shock mounting holes...

Im using CS27's. I shave a little plastic off the inside of the wheel to prevent rubbing.

These pics are from a few months back and show a number of new parts. This is not officially the 008, just a number of the parts that may make an appearance on it.

PS both pics were online anyway and could have been seen by anybody a month ago!

PPS neither are mine!
