This is exactly the type of feedback I've been looking for guys! I really want that T2. I've had a TC3 and a TC4 and I'll admit that the parts "should" be more durable than what they are. If the FT TC4 is using these same "sub-standard" parts and has only incorporated a new carbon double-deck chassis then I think I know what direction I'm going in. However...AE (or should I say-Thundertiger) does a good job keeping extra parts available.
The $100,000 question is...will I be able to get parts if I have the T2 car within the next month?
It won't be too impressive if a brake something and it sits on the table with people oo'ing and ahh'ing over it!
Don't get me wrong. It's not like I have a "board magnet" in my car it's just that I'd feel more at ease if I had back-up parts before I even begin to race it.
