Default Personally, I could care less....

if it looks like any of the other TCs. Xray looked to improve it over the 05, they designed it better and it looks better. What more could you ask for other than better handling. I hope it has even greater corner speed and easier to drive aggressively. One other thing, I always look for parts wear and durability. For the most part, since I got my Xray I have not looked back. I'm still about the front end of the 05. I hoped Xray made the frontend stronger with the T2. It looks like they don't have the front upper bumper plate in the bulkhead anymore. I just wish a company would make a assphalt or carpet specific chassis. It just makes sense to me. Weight transfers difference on carpet than on assphalt. I hope you can use the 05's larger wheel bearings on the T2. It looks promising.

THe Schumacher Mi2EC & Mi2EC "foam spec" have different chassis to enhance weight transfer for carpet & asphalt racing

I think it's pretty awesome how many great cars are available!!!!!!

It also shows the dilemna that car makers are in...

some people want a different chassis for carpet and one for asphalt...

another segment of the racing crowd complains that they need to get too many parts to cross over from one surface to the other...

People say that the biggest drawback on a car is that the spur is too difficult to access....changes are made to remedy it and people complain that it is a copycat design...

I guess people will just always find something to gripe about

Personally...i'm glad the added all the extra features..and Idon't careifother cars have the feature or had done it before....I'm still really looking forward to my T2

I have my new double cage thrusts sitting here waiting should a rebuild ever be required...although I doubt it...

I decided to go through and rebuild my car after running it heavy for months..and listening to allthe griping aboutthe shocks....but..not a single air bubble in the oil...oil was crystal clear...still rebounding perfectly...

I understandthat there were a couple people that may have had a fastener or small item here or there mis-packaged...but thatcan happen at any point during a production run...

I just don't know where all your negativity is coming from?
What negativity?? Are you saying these things haven't happened before or don't happen at all? I'm merely speaking out about it. You guys always seem to take things the wrong way. Its not like its your first born - is it?

I'm saying that many, if not most of the perceived 'flaws' or hiccups at the launch of the 05 were hype, hysteria and user error...just my personal opinion...

I'm not worried about flaws or launch problems....had none with my FK05, had none with my T1, had none with my XB8, none with my M18T...all first batch Xray kits...

They've earned my trust

Whoa! Do you feel old when you remember all those cars posted by AdrianM? I remeber when touring cars were just a novelty (even have old RC car action books from 10 years ago that show these cars ), kinda like an 18th scale nitro car now!....who knows what will be 10 years from now

Either way, the T2 is oozing innovation no matter how you slice it. The tuning options on this car make a rocket scientist stand up and say "wow"!

Sure, there are only so many ways to have a drive train, it's how you apply it that counts! Racing is all about having the edge and I think this car is the edge! You can bet that you will see this car in the winners circle on a regular basis!

So cars having off-set bulkheads and inferior thrust bearings were "perceived" flaws, huh? So you managed to escape the 1st run "bugs", you were fortunate. Many others weren't - we have the posts here to prove it. My M18 was fine and so was my FT '04, but i'm not going to pretend that the '05's initial problems were a mis-read of people's perception. I think you just insulted everyone's intelligence. You "brand crusaders" never say quit.
