I don't own an Xray anymore but these are nice changes they made. Also notice the new spool out drives.

As for the price, Xray/Hudy equipment will always be expensive. There are other top quality choices on the market. Lets not spend too much energy on what is inevitable.

I understand what you mean, for some those are minor changes and for some major. I belive that however they don't seem like big changes they will affect handling a lot and that what counts. If it's supposed to be called T3 or T2'010 was up to Xray marketing and I belive it wasn't completely bad idea as there were quite many T2 cars now and this makes it easier to distinguish.

If you think that I'm Xray biased - I'm not at all however I've raced their cars for many years - I'm now part of UK Schumacher team.

I'm perfectly happy with my 009, but the new car sounds / looks promissing.
Xray/Hudy stuff is always money, no matter what it is.

Considerably more changes than the 416x, whatever it should have been called, this car looks very good......even if it has no driveshaft, lol.

i was hoping the decision to upgrade from the 008 to the T3 would be easy, but my first impression from these pics is why bother...

The Xray technical explaination of the new stuff might win me over.

They will just bombard you with the word 'optimized'

Doesn`t look like anything special to me. Could be wrong though.

I`m guessing juria is gonna be bombarding us within a few days of how the t3 is optimized for this and that.......... and then at the end, hes also gonna say, it`s also optimized to empty your pockets dry.
Ah well we pay to play right, bring on the t3.
Mom can i get a loan, i need 600$ to but the new optimized t3,lol,lol.

Unfortunately very true indeed.
But don`t forget, she`s optimized......that`s worth at least .5 on every lap.
Unfortunately, that`s gonna be the propagander that x-ray gonna be feeding all of us. And you know what, were stupid for believing that gestapo crap, but not with me though. I for one will not be jumping on the t3 bandwagon.............. the car simply looks like a step back in time if you asked me, could be wrong though.

Looks like the rear shock tower has been raised by 2mm , by looking at the spacers on the outside of the top link.

http://www.rcxauta.cz/system/images/stories/t301.jpg

I wonder if the shocks have been lengthened to accomodate the tower height?

Interestingly though, the front positions dont seem to have been modified?
