Again you fail to see to see the obvious. The point is that people nowadays are more willing to "Buy" their way out of problems rather than to fix it on their own. In the case of the Xray, you're "Buying" all the extra precision and fitment. Why do you think they call it a "Luxury Touring Car" Just the same with an RTR you are paying for the "Luxury" of not building the kit.
Kit building is a craft. Some may build a kit better than others depending on how much extra time and "EFFORT" is spent on the kit.
I do see what you are saying, I have the whole time. I feel you are trying to put people down for expecting things to be right. I don't agree with your implication that expecting something to work properly or fit properly is somehow worse. If you buy a Chevy instead of a BMW, and the door won't close, are you going to rehang it? I doubt it. If you buy a TV and it doesn't work, are you going to fix it? I doubt this too. Why do you have lower expectations from your RC kits? If you get your enjoyment out of building a kit, thats great. I do not. I buy race quality kits to do just that. Race them. I have no desire to re-engineer them for the people that my purchase has helped to pay them already do that. You are missing the obvious.
Some people do assemble kits with more skill than others, however you shouldn't have to manufacture your own parts or redrill things in order to make it assemble. I obviously have higher expectations from my purchases than you do. I will no longer post on this dead horse subject.
