I think AE should just listen to complains and issues from customers and
just update there products like releasing some updated parts that address
problems. Or release a TC5R ver2 or a U.S. made TC5 (higher price). Like
what Tamiya is doing, releasing a ver2 of the TA05 that addressed some

In airsoft there is this brand KSC who sells airsoft replicas made in Taiwan
and Japan so you could choose, of course the Japanese-made went to
a more strict quality control and the materials used are better but
it's almost double the price of the Taiwanese airsoft replica.

Im happy with my TC5R and TC4 because they do what theyre suppose
to do and not that expensive on maintenance and spare parts even though
the components are sourced from different countries.

Firstly, if you're interested in someone's trader rating, there's a place where you can check it out. This thread is about other matters.

Secondly, this is not the place to post such comments. That place is here:

Thirdly, you've got to make sure you understand how the trader rating system works on this forum. Here, we don't have real protection from revenge feedback when we leave negative feedback. Other web based trading places such as ebay have corrected this, you might find it useful to check it out.

Lastly, your comment does not relate to anything (my expenditure on my hobby does not have any relation to my trader rating on this forum as most of my money is spent elsewhere) so your comment falls in the "comments we could have done without" category at best. At worst, you're trying to pick a fight and I am not going to give you that satisfaction. I suggest you take a moment to reassess your situation.

I hope I made my point. I will not respond to further comments here. This is a thread about other matters.

I would tend to agree.. let's not hijack this thread.

I don't really care where the TC5R is made personally, but would prefer someone here to be at least having as much in put in the car as possible besides just r&d.
