I just put together a TA05 and it was much easier then my Pro4 and RDX to put together.

Tamiya kits have always been known for being easy to put together...top notch fit...and great performance so I don't know what his friends problems were.

If your talking Tamiya kits in general. I bought a Tamiya 501X about a month ago and the directions and parts bags were a joke.

Facts ARE facts. That is all there is to it.

I guess I will just stick with my EZ-2-READ instructions put out by other manufacturers. Thanks for the delightful insight.

What "facts"? The fact that every R/C mag on the planet has had nothing but great things to say about Tamiya's easy to follow instructions. The fact that myself and most everyone else who's put a Tamiya kit together thought it was easy. But, since you couldn't follow them...then it's a "fact" that the instructions suck. Wow, I'll be sure and ask you before I do anything that way I can get the "facts".

At one of our local tracks, I've watched two different( very fast drivers) go from well setup tc3's and tc4 to xrays. both of these drivers on there first time out racing ran a full lap faster with the xrays than they did with there associated cars. Both xrays were setup with a basic carpet setup. since then, with fine tuning on there setups, both of these drivers have become two of the three fastest at this track. The other guy (#1 fastest) also drives an xray. The largest share of associated drivers at this track have either sold them for xrays or quit driving them. There's no doubt in my mind that driver and setups equal, the xray will turn faster lap times

Default No Facts

Both of you are talking with no facts and that is a fact even if you work for AE. Very good possibility they have improved instead of remaining the same. Good luck with your crystal ball, mine is a little foggy I guess. I am not trying to be mean, let's just wait and see. You guys are probably correct in your assumptions. Gofastrlbrown

the new associated tc5 is right on pace with the fastest xray drivers at the snowbirds. its cheaper easier to work on and get parts for it same day. the team just proved to the world that you do not need an xray to go fast. if you gave paul lemieux a tc5 he would go just as fast. its not always the car. besides we all know the xray is better than a tc4. just my .02

It's never the car. Xray are like the Yankees...pay the best to make their product look better.
