Check this out....

So I ordered my TC5 from Tower on 02/28. Well, right now they are in stock but only at the RENO warehouse. So to transfer my order to my the reno office, I have to cancel everything and start over and be put at the bottom of this list. SOmetimes I hate tower.......

outlandr, nice job on your car, but doesn't the tc5 come with a battery strap or do you have to buy that seperately?

Ok, AE really needs to redo their photo shoot. The car on the website looks horrible compared to the photos taken by owners. What an injustice.

That aside, car looks great. Thinking about getting one of these. My only concern is that when I had my TC3 and ran it on carpet, the c-hubs and steering knuckles were not very durable. Hopefully they toughened those up a bit.

Guess the next question is when is a PDub or Parma bumper gonna be available ?
