Now what about sponcered drivers having conflict of intrest.
Like Billy Easton racing for TT and Losi....Will Losi get a little upset that one of his top drivers is working for the "enemy" so to speak.
Has to make you think a little.....
Wonder how this is all going to pan out.

I've got a TT Raptor heli and it's a well made piece of machinery. I don't believe that TT egineering would hurt AE because both companies know kung-fu.

Working at Volvo, it is tough time being owned by Ford, who is leaking money as h-ll....
Yeah, I seriously doubt they'll rename AE. Brand association is huge.

Guys, I have been racing for over 20 years. Have had kits from all the mfgs over the years. I recently purchased a Thunder Tiger EB4 S3 1/8 buggy and for anybody to say the quality of Thunder Tiger is substandard would be extremely untrue. Now maybe the older earlier models were as this is my first Thunder Tiger car but the fit and finish on this new car is spot on. The quality of the parts are excellent. The car has over 2 hours of run time on it already and there is NOTHING loose on the car. The plastic parts are making it through the riggors of offroad in flying colors.

I think with the added resources that it should only make the Associated line of cars even stronger. Thunder Tiger is not afraid to step out of bounds on car design just like any of the other mfgs. I mean look at this buggy. Its the first car to have an extruded chassis and front shocks mounted behind the front shock tower which goes against the norm in 1/8 buggy design for sure. I would say look for great things to come out of those two camps.
