don't need to Its not my problem. But I can assure you if I EVER had one of my XRAY kits do this to me I wouldn't stop making phone calls till I had Martin Hudy himself on the line making it right. I wouldn't be using plumbing washers from True Value to straighten my car out. The industry gets away with stuff like this because people don't call them out on their flaws

Ive been building and racing RC cars since the mid 90s... Ive built my fair share kits and I can count on one hand the number of kits that didn't have at least one or two small quirks that required modification or tweaking in some way.

Associated makes great cars. But their strong suit is in the engineering and design, not necessarily the production quality control. When you buy one of the cheaper TCs on the market, you don't expect top-of-the-line quality. Associated makes cars for those people who want a car that can win without having to pay out the nose for it. You don't pay Associated money and expect Xray quality.

Im thrilled that you like your Xray. And Im thrilled that you feel entitled enough to complain about such minor problem until it is rectified for you. Some people don't mind fixing little things like this themselves... and would prefer to do so, rather than complaining about something that could easily be explained by small variances in manufacturing tolerances.

Your damn right I feel entitled to. I paid 500.00 dollars for a box of graphite and plastic. And you should feel entitled too. 400.00 is not a cheap price to pay for a kit either. I personally think Xray is nuts for what they charge for a kit. But i really like Orange Once you start to settle for little things the bigger they will become. Associated is a leader in this industry and should be held to producing a quality product for you and everyone else that spends their hard earned money.

Happy Holidays

It isn't your problem yet you feel compelled to keep shouting from your soapbox. But thanks for bringing this to our attention. Your diligence in bringing tweak free chassis to the world is a real favor to all mankind.

Happy Holidays, you are making the world a better place one toy car at a time.

Im not sure if youve been following this thread, but everyone who had a legitimate issue with their TC6 was taken care of by AE... quite promptly at that.

But no... I don't feel entitled. Working in an industry that mass produces products, I understand how things like the above mentioned top deck can occur. It is easier for me to pull 8 washers out of my parts bin than to call Associated demanding a replacement top deck because mine doesnt line up. Im comfortable knowing that if I had a problem that I could not fix in 2mins using something from my tool box, Associated would take care of me.
