No shit..Every year its like this the more you spend on advertising the more the ''red neck vote" takes over..

Hey Corey,

Ive only ran the car on carpet a few times BUT did do more than my fair share of hitting things and the only thing I broke was a couple of caster blocks. On the same note though they would have broken on any car with the hits I had It seems the AE Design/Race team did an outstanding job of making the car durable.

So basically, Associated took all the best ideas from existing cars like the RDX, 007 and Cyclone, combined them with their own ideas and ingenuity, plus everything they learned from the TC3/4, and now they're releasing the car for half the price of the competition? And spares are a third the price?

You don't need to race this car, you've already won.

Brent,

Would you be able to post Juho set up once the car is released?

I also sent you a PM when you have time could you get back to me.

Thanks
