Xray will probably have the prototype parts at the worlds and then will have the new kit/parts available afterwards. Around Oct. like RCKnight said.

the new one comes out. That what you can maybe update your electronics or whatever. Then later turn around and sell the use car. Buy a TC4 or something for under $100. Cheap parts and easy to find.

It's not certain if it will be a completely new car since they just came out with the T3. It might be a T3 with refined/redeveloped parts. One thing for sure if you are planning to get one, get on the waiting list. After the first batch is sold out it might be weeks or even months before the next batch is out and this is the same for any chassis (Tamiya, T.O.P., etc).

I don't think there is much else they can do. I still like the idea of a single belted car like the XXX-S. That is about as simple in design as you can get. Still waiting on Losi for that one. lol What we need is a "R" version of their new car much sooner.
Two belt design is the most efficient apart from shaft drive, but they have even greater problems due to the torque effect, and with the cars getting even more powerful that effect will only get worse.

Carbon arms would be a bit too easy to break for my liking as friends with Tamiya's keep finding out.

Your friends must hit the wall hard. I have never seen a broken Tamiya arm before. We have about ten 416's, 415's, and TA05's at my local track.

I am interested to see what Xray does about the suspension mounts. The separate blocks were pretty hyped up but it didn't take long for everyone to be running the one-piece blocks.

the reason i moved to Xray from Tamiya was because of the suspension arms and uprights breaking , I had 2 TRF415's and a TRF416we

i have only broken 1 arm on the T3 and i have had it since they 1st came out and i drive every week !!!!

www.overrc.com

you'll see a blackart lipo chassis for the T3. It was made on demand and designed by french driver WPV though so I don't think you can buy one.

Without wanting to rain on anyone's parade....

1. Xray haven't had anything leak in the past before a new touirng car chassis announcement. They normally do all their testing behind closed doors at their private track(s), then drop the car into the RC world fully finished.

2. 2010 is a Worlds year, but in the past Xray have always announced new TCs at the end of the year.

3. The T3 kits come with updated 1pc hingepin blocks now.

It just seems mighty odd that someone from America starts a thread saying how the ''new'' Xray will look like this or that, but doesn't remember how or when Xray announce new cars, and how he's ''sure'' it'll have certain features, yet doesn't have any apparent connection to the Slovakian company. Sounds like a result of an imaginative mind to me.

Its pretty much a given thing that Xray will have new parts to run at the Worlds, after all, its the centre stage for TC racing. But until Xray have the info on their website, don't believe anything you read about them. We all remember the FK06 Shaft Drive that was a ''100% certain to come out and had already been tested''....

Not sure if America or Europe makes a difference as to the origin of rumors. Wasn't a bunch of the European guys that were claiming to have seen with their own eyes a shaft drive car that was supposed to be the T3?
