See you in Cleveland bro.

Oh and I think putting Hanulec on 3 cars is underestimating by about half.
No I still don't have one. I am at my local Fedex right now using there's people keep looking at me funny while I yell at the computer

Look forward to seeing you in Cleveland, what about the Halloween race?

I think I'll have to clear out the stable again to make room for some new rides like I did with my T2's. Be on the look out for some smoking deals on rctech...

And just to make some things clear -- real men don't buy parts -- they buy kits!!

All of those parts have been, em, replaced. I decided on my 'kits only' strategy after replace parts from that wreck. 60mph on your lid going backwards into a concrete wall isn't a good look for any car.

I think I need to install a rear bumper like our 24 hour race winner plastic hoopdee had - http://www.rctech.net/forum/racing-f...2010-a-49.html

As of right now the stuff that has been tested will bolt up but not sure if they are changing anything else before release.

This reminds me of the time I was at the UPS store and forgot my password for the UPS account I had. I went up to the desk and showed my ID, etc. They had to write the password down and hand it to me. It was" FED_EX_RULZ "....

Default Relax guys...

Chill Drew man, I never claimed anything I said was fact, read my posts. If that is a incorrect number of sales, I very glad to know that. My sorces have been good in the past. If they are wrong, so be it, their intentions are not bad. Again though, this is not a advertisement place for Xray, this is a place to talk racing and products. Sorry if posts don't go in the direction you want. I never jump on anyone for giving their opinion on a product or otherwise. I've always said this is my opinion, but much of it makes logical sense to me. Sorry if I expose shortfalls, but I have much good to say about Xray as well.

Default My reasons for wanting the TC4, Tamiya...etc...etc..

toe blocks is less parts count and reduce weight. The camber links on the bulk heads, it's for finer adjustments. There are my reasons. If Xray didn't accept those design changes then my guess is that they don't want the extra costs involved in kit production. Same as with the shocks. It's cost vs profit margin. Same as AE TC6, but their kit is cheaper and comes with titanium camber links and hard coated shocks. Get it? As a customer, I want those features if I'm paying a high price for it. Heck I would pay more, as Xray already has great design features to add. The car is not out yet, so we will see soon enough. If you fanboys can't understand this then, well, sorry, but then you can't see past the name. Drew I respect you and the team, don't get me wrong here, it's their decision and sale will reflect it. My point is made and I'm done.
