For you information. Taiwan has excellent and cheap manufacturing processes.
Please do not confuse this with China made parts which are currently slowly but surely catching up in standards in quality.
Besides, why do you not question the cheap taiwanese parts in your PC now? Last I heard, a huge chunk of computer parts and components originate from Taiwan.
If buying cheaper priced Associated cars is not your cup of tea, you can always look around for more expensive brands.
You might also wanna check with the more experienced Associated drivers on the shabbiness of Associated "US made" parts.
