I bet the only change that will happen this year is a lipo friendly chassis!!!

Default Does every post have to have some point to it?

So what, what is wrong with a topic about TC design? Funny how many seem to feel they need to police this thread. I've seen far more less interesting topics that have no point. Who cares, were talking about toy cars. I think most people would consider anything about toy cars as being pointless. Let the speculation and buzz fly until we see what they decide. I know I have a wish list as well.

Default You would think Xray would like to create some buzz...

but they have no information right up to the release date. If people could see the new Xray maybe they would hold off on buying some other brand name. It may be in their best interest since there are so many new ones coming out. Everyone knows a new one is coming so a few perhaps T3 sales loss wold be better than people going to another TC brand.

well if it's a centered design it will fail like the rest of them in sales. Any more info on what it's going to be from the worlds? The T3R is a steal right now, but I want to wait and see what they do. If they don't update it to the current trend then I may consider trying a 416 or their new one. I've never tried a Tamiya. I just don't care to spend that much though. lol

Why would they leak information on stuff that is simply being testing and has not been finalized?

i would still buy a T3 waiting for the new car, i wouldnt expect a car too soon tho becuse lipo chassies needs more testing. atleast it seems like. and when they come with a new car it is probably compatible with older T versions.

just buy a t3r, then you can get the new chassis when it comes or buy the one it will probably copy, the Exotech, now

the current t3 is one of the top 2 cars


Look how fast Paul was and ask him how many races he has on asphalt with the t3

Xray will release their next car on November as they always do (it used to be March but past 3 years is November)

As T3 the new platform was released last November the new car (T3 2010) most likely will have very small differences, most likely the chassis, which can be easily be bought and be used with T3.

Don't worry with compatibility with Xray, there many parts that fit from to T3 to T2!!

very narrow chassis with trf416 style steering and the servo was mounted in the same orientation as the T3 but the servo saver was centre line with the car

I was waiting for Xray to go to twin bellcrank steering. HB have gone that way too. Wonder why Hagberg and Paul L were not running it?
