Not completely sure of the shelf price onthe new car however the last few cars has been relatively close in MSRP.

There will be a EU and a US kit for the T3 as well. As far as "tests" not sure what you mean.

The T3 is supposed to be alot better than the 009 on asphalt Hudy himself mentions this in the xray site.

I have to say, Team B&B I dont know what planet you live on, or where you come up with the ideas that you have. Maybe your smoking something really good before you grab ahold of the keyboard.

but dude you are so far out to lunch on the things you say, the fact of the matter is you really dont have a clue. i've been at big races watched sponsored drivings use any and all products including the ones that conflict with what they are driving or who makes the parts for the company they are driving. when all is said and done, being a racer you do what it takes to win the race.

you keep referring to Mr. Hudy... as long as he is selling car kits and parts he could really care less what parts you put on it when you get to the track.

i hope in the future, you maybe just think alil more about what you are going to type before you type it. The T3 looks like a great car and should be awesome like all the xray products in the past.

you really know how to screw up a good thread

Wow. At some point a thread turns from cars to personal. Let's get this thread back to XRAY and T3.

Does anyone know if Paul Lemieux had the T3 at the On-Road Nats in Frederick MD? I need to collect a bet.

XRay's way of differentiating itself in the market is with its very high quality, which is undeniable. And, as we know, generally means parts are noticeably more expensive than other brands. The perception is that you get what you pay for, and as long as people are willing to pay more because they feel like they're getting more, XRay will likely continue to be successful. You can't fault them for this, they provide a cutting-edge kit that you know is going to work, and make no compromises.

So, when a representative of the company (like a team driver) uses a less expensive part from another brand, it undermines the very core of the whole idea that paying more means you're getting better parts. How can they charge 200-300% more for springs if their team guys are ditching them in favor of springs from HPI made 15 years ago?

I can understand why they want to keep this image up. Because even with all the quality and engineering, at big races with all the teams in attendance, XRay has struggled to get a marque win for a while now.

All that said, I still want one.

What races? Xray has either dominated show or won at every national/regional race in recent memory.
