Default Shame on you

If anyone buys this...SHAME ON YOU...
This doesn't help the hobby at all....
1. If you’re getting into the hobby this is not the way to go..support your LHS
....you know, the one that has the track available for your use and enjoyment. There are few cars on the market in the $200 to $300 range that are very good and support is easy.

2. Obviously supporting a company which has blatantly copied and stolen a product from a premium and one that supports racer and vice versa. SHAME ON YOU.

3. SHAME ON YOU…

Now that is funny shizzeeee!!!!!!....
I would pay and entry fee to see that....

Niether does sending some poor bastard out to run rubber tire with a car thats going to shudder itself to death and make them think they drive sh**y when the car just plain sucks out the box.

granted Sammy actually wears victoria secret pajama pants on race night,,,, so the quality of driver matches the chassis: ghey

I will match that by allowing you to choose which one from the 4 wheels to take off. Sammy will run it with just 3 wheels and giving you a 5 seconds head start.

OK - who bought their TRF416WE from their LHS???????
What price did you pay?
What place did you get at your last event?
What job do you/father/mopther do? ie what wage you earn?
When did you last shop at your LHS for more than paint and tires?
Why pay out on a country that has little or no laws governing the "copying" of a product when the original company (eg.Tamiya) organizes most of the manufacturing to be done in that country due to wage and social costs?

Just adding my 2 cents in

You may be throwing your two cents in, but one of your pennies is saying one thing, and the other one is saying the opposite...
