I'll let you know if my building turns out ok! (you probably don't give a damn about that but.... )
SEE YA LATER!
I give a damn! I care!
If you simply take your time and cut each part off the spru properly, and take some time to build it well, it will be a perfectly fine car.
Here's to your building success!
Plus, too many people have it in their heads that for a car to be "GREAT!" it must have Ti this and Al that.
People say the TC4 seems cheap because it's made of "plastic."
Actually, it's a molded carbon impregnated resin. A material that when compared to ANY metal besides Titanium is stronger per unit of weight than ANY other metal.
It's made out of that material for a reason. Metal bends, tweaks and otherwise is malleable. Carbon impregnated resin/plastic parts either survive or break, very rarely do they bend.
Now maybe some will understand why MANY pro drivers opt to run the old TC3 "plastic" dogbones as opposed to the Al ones. In a hit, the Al bones will ALWAYS bend horribly easily. The fibre/plastic ones will simply flex and take the abuse...or break. However if a fibre bone breaks, most likely your arm and control link is history as well.
I simply LOVE it when KIDS bash the work of PHD holding Engineers in their 30's /40's.
It's a funny sight to behold.
