Agreed with the turnbuckles and driveshaft. It's tricky because Xray themselves used to mention that the 7075 T6 driveshaft should be used on the rear only (too much stress on front end with the spool). It was a while ago when they introduced this alloy version for the first time (during the T2008 period, if I remember correctly).

About $250. My hobbyshop, Hobbytown USA HobbyPLEX, was the first one in the nation to order the T3R.

Yep, my original T2R had adjustable turnbuckles, why they would remove them on the T2R PRO and now the T3R is ridiculous.....

yes the T2R is a very nice car. spring steel turnbuckles and driveshafts

im trying my luck with a tamiya 416WE this year. have always enjoyed running xray for the quailty and preformance of their touring cars. but the T3 just isnt in the budget and dont want another T2R PRO, rebagded. i hope everyone that picks up the T3R enjoys their car

Whilst they may be more flexible, if you weigh them you'll see for example the FRP deck is heavier than it's carbon cousin...

That orange is the reason I bought the T2R pro over the 009. It's horrible.

Graham, it helps being a little blind. That way you don't see as many grey hairs amongst the brown ones !
