Let's hear it for Associated/Thunder Tiger. And once again IMO, I could care less about the quality of pictures on their Website. I don't have my car yet, but everyone who has received their car seems happy. I think that is what matters most. Do we really care that Xray's picture were better?

Just my opinion,

It just seems like if they wanted to market it better they would have spent a bit more time and effort in making it look as good as possible for that person who looks at it online and not in person. If you look at the XRay site, their pictures are almost "art" like, obviously professional. Little things like that (heck it really isnt a little thing its a major thing) can really make a difference.
Why not make it look better ?

I mostly agree with you actually, but at the same time someone recently posted that they should have prepped the chassis and sealed it and all that kinda thing. I responded that I would rather have them display it to us the way we will receive it. As far as quality of the pictures my opinion on that was that I was happy their effort was more on developing the car and not all on website layout or glammor. I liked the Xray pics as much as anyone but that not why I bought them, FK05, then T2, then T2 007 US. I just want the car to be were their effort is and with the TC5 I think they did a great job.

Ah so the comment really was not directed at me really. I know you like the Type R as well since you have one listed in your sig. I don't run Lipo so I don't worry about needing a battery to fit my car even though the R will except them.
