Default Waiting waiting waiting.

I'm tired of this waiting. I just want the bloody car. It looks like everyone even remotely associated with Associated, and his granny, has already got the car. "Oh, sir. weren't you Associated teamdriver in good old "63, here is our new car." WHY isn't the car in shops?
I'm giving up on this stuff, seriously thinking about Pro4. And considering the way they try to control the market here that's saying a lot.

Paulc: Avatar rules, bud!!!

Yes: To make putting in and taking out the diffs easier, dremel a slight angle on the chassis braces. This is more of a 'Racer Tip' than a fix....we made the chassis brace standoffs thick so they would be durable.

Battery slots: I'm not sure I understand your concern, Nightbreed. The cutouts are made for purpose, not lightweight. I know a couple 'other' manufacturers that lightened the heck outta there battery side of the chassis and they have some issues with the chassis breaking on that side during a hard side impact. I'm not saying that the slots are the reason, but it could be a partial cause.

Default factory team kit...

I have a feeling they are holding back the release of the factory team kit until they really need to... Say maybe when Losi releases their new kit??? Umm, what if Losi decides to release a "G+" of their new car straight away...

Dave: its not the first time that we have recieved stocks of newly released (US made) stuff here in Manila. That particular picture paulc posted was taken at one of our biggest local hobby shops who deals directly with AE, Trinity, Horizon, Novak, etc. So he does not have to go through a dealer, sub-dealer or any other middle party to get his stocks. So he is pretty much in the "first layer" of the distribution chain. He actually supplies to shops and dealers throughout the Philippines and some parts of Asia (ie. HK) and Australia. So for us locals, it means we get some of our gear early.

That's my point. Well, two points, weight and better cell cooling. Sorry TPhalen, I have to ride you on this one. I understand the cost of correction, so maybe in the future you guys could test it's durability and see if it will weaken the chassis. Then AE can mod it for a future revision. I'll buy one. It's these little details I like to see in a TC

Thanks

Looks like a little T.L.C. with a dremel or CNC machine would work just fine.. ...... now if I could only remember the name of that guy that did the Awesome CNC jobs on the TC3 chassis
