Mabe you should re-read what I wrote.....you seem to be jumbling thing's around.....I was refering to when the long awaited Associated TC-4 team kit came out it had the batterys moved to the "exact" same inner location as the year old BMI tc-3...and now even more similarities to the BMI line of cars on the factory team kit...I just find it funny.....It just seems like more old "been there done that" technology......Im also not trying to start a pissing match.... but since this is a public forum and we all have different opinions and experience's of what associated has turned into, in comparison to what they used to come up with......oh well ......

At what point do you think other than re-inventing the wheel each time that perfecting a design isn't a better option?

NP Joe. I understand your points totally.

I'd like to know what other 'similarities' you see between the two cars???

also, in regards to the antenna mount, it adds to option of totally removing it for instence if you are running a spectrum system and you dont run the antenna, that will save a minute amount of weight

my .02 cents

Your arms, mounts and hubs will transfer over to the new car.

At the moment, we do not have a release date.

Will they have an "FT" front arm? One that doesn't flex so much or snap as easy?

Really??? Didn't know that was a problem, actually.

It will come with the same design arm, just in carbon composite.

TPhalen,
Before I say anyhting else, the car looks absolutly amazing. I sense more money leaving my wallet....
With the current trend of manufactures to make asphalt cars more felxible (Pro 4 2005 edition and TRF415 MS) by having thinner decks, will this mean that you will carry on the graphite moulded TC4 as the asphalt car (with its more flex), or use the dual deck layout and play with the flex using the chassis posts etc?
Also, will the dual deck be released as a hop-up for our current cars, or will this prove too costly to be an economical idea?

Cheers
Crashmaster
