Ah yes, but true marriage is for better or worse, richer or poorer, through sickness and in health.
All due respect, real fans don't drive other manufacturers cars... They make do with their chosen manufacturers cars no matter what.
I would like to consider myself a true AE fan.... a nut, if you will. I have always loved my FT TC4 and I think it goes pretty darn well. It is only my driving skill that prevents me from winning my club races in an - all but me - belt driven field. My best lap times are on the pace, but my consistency is not. If I get a better car from AE, then perhaps I will reap the benefits from putting in the hard yards with a "below par" car as some might put it (although I'll still love my TC4, and fervently race it in stock class).
My only defection is that I also race a WE BJ4 along with my B4 and 18B at off-road, but I think it's as close to an AE EP4WD that you can get at the moment plus it has Team Associated stickers on it!!! I may not be a real racer, at the top of the podium every weekend, but I would like to consider myself a true AE nut... nothing will sway me. I think Mr. Boyle is a step up. He is always getting his fingers dirty for the sake of "The Team"
Sorry about the ramble
