I just called my LHS. They spoke to RC America. No more FK05's will ship. Next car to ship will be the T2.

basically you change a setting on the diff and it goes from a oneway to a spool to a diff and I believe there is a locked oneway in there also
What Ddesrosiers is referring to is the last screen on the flash presentation...

Xray Multi-Flex technology - One car for all surfaces

sounds interesting

They kept the car well covered up at the race...and respectfully asked people that were given a glimpse to refrain from taking photos...

If this car is as close to landing at our LHS as it sounds like, Xray has done an AMAZING job of keeping it under wraps...

the way it sounds...I may be buying myself a Christmas present!!!

Believe me...I'm scouring the net for them....

There are some witness accounts of the car on a couple of other threads..and some information that was posted to www.rczone.net but that's about it so far...plus the Multi-Flex that was talked about on the Xray site at the end of the flash presentation....

I don't care if there's a T3 T2 or T10....

As long as Xray doesn't leave their FK05 owners out in the dark by not keeping the same arms, knuckles, ect...or atleast keep them available.

Similar to how Tamiya utilizes the same type of suspension across all their cars.


Whatever they come up with I'm sure it will be sharp!

i dont think itll be a drastic change.. maybe new flex-adjustable chassis and top plate along with new motor mounts to bring it closer to the center of the chassis.

or maybe it will be drastic....
article from RCZONE.NET

After some strong rumors during the last few weeks it has now been confirmed that there is indeed a new competition electric touring car coming soon from Xray. As almost per tradition there are no pictures or official press statement which so far been released by Xray themselves.



The first hints came from various sources a few weeks ago and now it seems the project has advanced enough for a prototype to be used at last weekends Team Orion Speed Weekend meeting in Germany. It appears that the prototype was used by Martin Hudy in Rheinberg whereas the other Xray drivers run FK'05.



According to reports coming from the race the car was well hidden but it would appear that the new car will look fairly similar to the latest belt-drive offerings from other manufacturers. Where the FK'05 was still very much a refinement of previous Xray's sharing many parts with the older cars it looks like the upcoming car will be a much larger step with almost no parts carried over.



Here's a sketchy list of details as seen by those with inside info:

- same basic layout but with new chassis with changed weight distribution
- lowered upper deck and new bulkheads for easy access to drivetrain
- new adjustable upper deck
- completely new front & rear suspension
- wheels fastened with nuts instead of screws probably indicating smaller wheel bearings
- no information on this but one would assume new dampers



According to some unconfirmed reports the new car could be released very soon and knowing Xray's part this would not be surprising.
