XRay, Corally and maybe Schumacher (I've never onwned one of those) may have a slight advantage in the quality dept but AE has one thing that not one of those cars has...parts on the shelves in the local shops.

I agree, it's about driving style and setup. Of course driver talent comes in no where here...it's all about the hardware

I'm looking forward to the AE's new belt car as well. It will have one thing that none of the other current belt cars will have (except maybe the JRXS), parts on the shelf at the local shops here. That counts for a lot.
And their parts don't cost an arm & a leg

I think you can blame you're distributors for the parts issue.
Over here (UK) I can get hold of any Xray part I wish. However when it comes to Tamiya parts.... The distributor for Tamiya here only seems interested in cheaper RTR kits and models so most of the racers have to import.
