Well in the case of the '007 to '008 most of the parts will carry over because it will still be a T2. That means caster blocks, steering blocks, arms, etc will all be the same so you know parts won't be a problem. Even parts for the T1 series are still available. I understand, eventually that those parts won't be available but by then if someone still had a T1 i'd say they got their money's worth and its time to let that car go.

Hey Bobby,
How's it going?? I see you have been doing well with the new gas car. Very nice
the new gas car is awesome. Looks like from the "spy" pics the new electric stuff is looking good too much more competitive on rubber for sure..Like winning. LOL Hope you come back for some carpet action this winter,

James

A number of these parts have been around since the beginning of the asphalt season so they havn't just been designed specifically for the Montibrison track.

Unluky Steve, but well done Ronald!


Just add front&rear diff, front&rear belt, links and wuupppsss a new car


Sorry just had to be a little sarcastic

Im hoping most of the parts do carry over from the 007 to the 008.

Both cars have another topdeck and chassis, one 5cell version and the second 6cells 2mm chassi version.

Any new news, possible release date etc...

Want to buy a T2 in Sept/Oct, wondering if it's worth waiting?
