Awesome.

Brits are funny (that's a true statement, no sarcasm intended)

I'm going to add "mongchild" to my vocabulary. Thanks Prick Priest.

Hey Nick, Im curious in your finding if you can post pictures that would be cool. I guess if it is going to be a problem would be nice to see if there was a way to help prevent it. I assume the guy CAed a washer to the top of the chassis for the screw to be held in place to fix temporarily?

Dunno where you're getting your prices from but I paid $320 for my tc5 brand new from the states


Comparison from Rc Mushroom... Xray T3 $529!!!!

Photon $370
Tc5 $328
Mi4Lp $469.99 (schumacher direct)

Hrm..... so $59 more for the next most expensive car, lot of money to pay for something thats weaker and not really any faster.

Lets face it you're all getting ripped off

Schumacher mi4 IS the best car out at the moment.

I think it's quite a good post considering xray have basically said my friend is lying that his sponsor currently has 9 cars with f**ked up chassis.

Apparently there have been enough concerns for Xray to post this on their site.

Yawnnn seen it... pathetic that this should even be considered as a fix.

Xray should be sending out new chassis or even a newly designed part (possibly a stolen design from a tamiya or cyclone)
