Most of you guys are funny. You get yourself worked up over speculations and rumors instead of just being patient and waiting to see what actually does hit the fair/website/market. I remember when many of you did this the first time thinking it was be an onroad nitro touring car and Xray released a bunch of 1/18th scale stuff and a revamped nitro 1/8th scale buggy. The next time it all the speculation happened about onroad stuff and it was another version of the offroad buggy and a new truggy (1/8th scale stadium truck). It wasn't until the third time speculation started is when the NT1 finally hit the scene. The very last time this stuff started about an 1/8th scale onroad car, many of you were extremely disappointed when it was to release a 1/12th scale and 1/10th scale WGT car. Slow down Speed Racers, be patient and wait; you are driving yourselves nuts with all this guessing.

Only if you know more info within industry, than you won't call it rumor, but "controlled leak"...

We shell see within 24hrs anyway, if it's rumor or controlled leak.

With great success and total satisfaction with the NT1 it too has been VERY difficult to improve anything.
I guess it's not really hard to "improve" with additional camber hole and damper hole...

The true news on the car are only the radio plate (narrower on the servos side...It's now more similar to the Capricorn's one) and the factory adjustable wheelbase that means new upper and lower front brackets...
..and maybe the shock tower and the rollcenter bridge with more adjustment points


Few but nice improvements....
..well done Mr.Hudy

For me the only good thing is new front arm, as while using +0.75 wheel hex, the "old" front arm is kind too long to use.

Everything else, I can dremel it....;ppp

Pff, they are really trying to squeeze every last $ out of the car.
No need for me to buy the 2010 kit, have had the rollcentre bridge and shocktower for more then a year but then made by Capricorn.
The new radiotray is mad within 5 minutes with a dremeldisk.
And I have had the adjustable front (and rear) wheelbase since mid 2009.
Maybe the belts are interesting, but only when I have gone through my current stock of belts.

The other 2 models are just easy moneymakers, design 2 or 3 new parts and tadaaa we have a new model.

As I'm learning with the XRAY T2/T3, Juraj likes to create a car with infinite adjustability so that the car can be all things to all people - i.e. any track layout and track conditions on the planet. Weather someone will use or can benefit from some of these optional adjustment features is immaterial. The mere fact that it is possible to offer these new types of adjustments seems to be more than enough justification to release a new car.

It's a good thing the other manufacturers are not this *sensored* about being able to make all these little adjustments. Otherwise the other manufacturers would be coming out with a new car every year as well.

Offcourse, more adjustments is always a good thing if you ask me.
I'm currently busy with designing my own 1/10 car and it will have even more possibilities.
A thing I forgot in my previous post that xray will sell it for the same price as the 2009 and in that case it's a good thing to have these small changes.
However, the 2009 kits still in stock will be priced down a lot, so if I will be needing a new kit I would buy a priced down 2009 and buy the new rollcentre bridge.
