Very strange.

They are offering Gear diff V1 as standard but V2 as option in this GTX8.
Why not offering gear diff V2 as standard like in XB8 2017.

We all know V2 was introduced in XB8 2017 to solve all V1 issues in XB8 2016.

Same goes to servo saver.
Why not offer the same stronger material servo saver like in XB8 2017, instead of the one in XB8 2016???

Where are you seeing that V1-V2 info??
Any hint out yet as to who will handle distribution and maybe price range??
Absolutely stunning presentation of their incredible product.
Congrats to Mr. Hudy and an outstanding design and production staff, beautiful machine!!

Hi FH1 !! Good to hear from you.

Trying to get 'giddy factor' under control. I didn't see that on my search on AMain earlier......bookmarked now!! What a beautiful bit of work.
Got to get my other computer up with bigger monitor to be able to 'STARE' at Hudy site better. 🤗

You got the 'itch' after having driven one of the earliest 'XRay buggy/GT conversions' ?? 😎

It looks like the GT car is built on the 15/16 platform. which is fine.
