there is no new car coming out if there was a new car it would have been at iic and someone would have pics posted. but as hudy said they are working on new ideas. i would say and this is just my opinion but there wont be a new car till the next worlds race.

Im sure the Xray accountant would not agree with that statement. Its simple business, keep products fresh and you make cash. There will guaranteed be a new model, its just a matter of how much will it be changed, and what features will come std.

The fact that Xray hasn't said there is not a new car for 2010 is relevant.

007, 008, 009...why would they stop for 2010?

From a sales standpoint, NOT announcing a new car for 2010 until the last possible second is the smart thing to do. Their supporting retailers want to sell as many of the "old" kits as possible at full pop. Deplete the stock on the 009 as much as possible before being forced to discount and make room for the "new" kit...same as what happened to all those discounted 008 kits last year.

Last year they said there wouldn't be a 2009 and there was. At this point no one would believe them if they did say there wouldn't be a 2010. On the flip side if they want to make major changes to support lipo batteries in a different way they might take 2 years to create a T3. If I were running Xray though and had the following I had I would make a minor change, change the anodizing color again and release a 2010 just to get some extra sales.

Did the company actually make a statement, or is that what sponsored drivers were saying? I've heard the drivers aren't saying anything either way this year...

Such drama! They should get Kanye West to make an announcement.

The sponsor drivers said the company (or at least distributor) said that. At least from how I remember it. The RC crowd is so critical on those types of things if I were them I would keep my mouth shut too. It only gets thrown back at you if you miss a date, change something, etc.

LOL re: Kanye!

well here is the thing
the 09 is soooo nice i dont see why x ray would rush a new car out
the already revised the 09 about 1 mouth ago
it seems to be winning so why change it.
my opinion is to take a year off and try to make a new car but take a little extra time to get it as good as they can.
