Mr. Black im my book you are the Industry peer.
No one has ever been more truthful than you on here. And don't think people don't respect that.
You keep it real and thats the kind of leader ship the Industry needs.
Keep up the good work.
I'm ordering my T-4 tonight we are going to see what those platinums are made of this summer.
Later.
OH and I'm not sucking up Fellas just trying to get sponsored. Sit back and read how its done.

I wish I knew where the budjet racers in Florida are. I have a Mini and a buddy has an F103GT collecting dust because no one around here runs anything but sedan and 1/12th.

I think my Black lives in a very unusual pocket of consumers around Tamiya USA.

I want a new car every 6-8 months. So every year I think there should be a new car, it gives me reason to buy something new. As long as it's improved, refined, or better in some way I will buy the new version.

Thank you XRAY.

Thank you for the kind words, but I have no control over sponsorship.

Wrong Adrian, The racer at the track even Tamiya wants new, new, new the Tamiya "racing" crowd is not a budget racer look how expensive it is to run competative TCS these days. I am speaking for the guy who doesn't have a corner of his garage sectioned off for his R/C bench but still loves to show his neighbor the new hop-ups he just got and run with said neghbor on the weekends during practice days at the local track.

Tamiya sales do not go up by what is bought and sold at their track they sell a lot of both of those cars you mentioned regardless of their track.

Based on your mode of thought then monster trucks are dead because nobody in my area seems to race them? And we all know that monster trucks are definately being raced around our country just not "our way".
Our industry is short sighted and we fail to take in the big picture as we also fail to think long term, problem #1

Look at the F-103 GT and Mini threads on this forum and you will many places they are popular and embrassed by budget racers. Many budget racing clubs do not feel the need to promote themselves beyond their club, they are happy racing with their buddies why ruin it. Many of the people runing these classes don't want industry people like you or myself racing with them because we spoil the show and I understand why they feel that way.

g'day
just about all the points made are correct but doesn't it come back to the club racers that hold the sport together. Think about this if a manufacture came out with a car that only needed minimal upgrades every couple years and spares were readily available at your local hobby shop how many people would by the latest and greatest (especial if it is competitive for these years). More spares should mean cheaper parts? The cheaper it is to maintain a car the more people this would attract to the sport. But unfortunately we are our own worst enemy.
This applies to car,radio,electronic and battery manufactures (these people only put out so many units of a perticular item then thats it unless there is a great demand for it.)
thanks for your time in reading this, i could be barking up the wrong tree but i think this is whats needed. Power to the people.
Steven.

Yes the Recoil is a good, but wait until better tires, hop-up shocks, aluminum parts a new grphite chassis from a company in Japan comes out then the guys racing Recoils will think they have to have a $400 Recoil to be competative.

TC was huge when the cars where all plastic, fiberglass and were hard to break and could run easily on a rough un-prepared asphalt surface. The adjustments were limited. Tires were not the best but they would easily last longer them 3/4 of a run and would even get better as the run progressed not worse. What people were racing 8 years ago were also the same as the RTR's from from the same time. Today if you tried to race with an RTR you will get driven over.
