Been driving myself nuts with looking at tv's lately and it seems like I can get an 82 inch 80r for ~$3000 and an 85 inch 80T for $3300

Reviewers seem to indicate that the 80T is worse in almost every way:

Less zones for the FALD
More DSE
worse build quality
lower contrast
lower brightness
black uniformity

The only real advantage I see is that the 80T is HDMI 2.1 certified and has an extra 3 inches. The 80r has almost full 2.1 functionality, though, I believe.

Am I missing something here, or is getting the 80r in this situation a no brainer?

HDMI 2.1 (albeit at 40gbps and only one port has that feature) capability including eARC support and more up to date overall support. If you are not interested in Xbox Series X nor the PS5, then go find the now-discontinued Q80R while you can.

Q80R doesn't have HDMI VRR, but if you don't need than then it's probably a better TV.
The Q80R does have VRR. So does the Q60R, Q70R and Q90R.

It has Freesync. But doesn't have HDMI 2.1 spec HDMI VRR. We don't know if that means next-gen consoles won't work with it. The consoles might have Freesync and HDMI VRR, they might only have HDMI VRR and that would mean you would be missing out on VRR completely.
