Well said. The FK04 and FK05 were/are great cars, but the T2 looks phenominal. Didn't look a whole lot different than the FK05 at first glance, just noticed the new bulkheads and lowered top deck. Upon further inspection, Xray has really put some thought into this thing. I'd be interested to know how long they've been working on it. The car itself looks very polished, but the press release was a bit fumbled. There's some interesting speculation in that.

The T2 looks amazing, it has every great feature the other TC's have combined!
This is the car I've been waiting for, I guess it's time for me to sell my FK04 and buy the T2

well i got the glasses already.. yeah it's my shitenhousen monitor, on the laptop the pics look good

i still think the fk04 is a work of art. i think Mr Hudy, saw the pics of my Full BMI FK04 i took a few months ago and copied my polished baulheads look

from experience the polished look disapears pritty quick, this might be the same with the fk06, unless hudy placed a chrome layer on the baulks or something

T2 looks fantastic.
1 question to answer. take a close look at the motor mount. whats under the front of it. why doesn't it touch the chassis like at the rear?

I would suspect that is for allowing chassis flex when running the chassis more flexible...

Spacer in + screwed down = when stiff

When flexy, Spacer out so that it will allow the chassis to flex torsionally without tweaking

Steve, from prior experience do you expect to get spare parts at the same time as the cars? I always like to grab some extra hubs and arms when I buy a new car.

Windsorguy99:

Hi,

Well after looking at the pics this morning (5am) I might have to get one to add to my fleet of XRays. it does look nice. I was going to buy another 05 (Chucks car and all his parts) and may still do so but I'm going to get one of these.

I'll talk to you a little later.

Thanks
