I'd say that qualifies as a "need".
Your top-line racers are difficult to finish a race??

Default 1 more AE negative

Oh and call AE for some customer suport I'll never make that mistake again. I have gotten good service everytime from R/C America. Schumacher USA's customer suport is second to none so soviet if you really like the MI2 trust me they are only a phone call away and will get you anything you need quick.

Give me a break...
If you do not think they are making money on a $80 kit you are out of your mind. I am all for buying replacement parts but when I pay $380 on a kit I shouldn't have to upgrade the steering axles just to be able to remove my bearings. Most LHS, like any other business, goes out of business because they 1. fail to adapt to the current market 2. over estimate the need for their product.

Also regarding your "Give me a break" comment - When I pay the money for a kit I earn the right to express my opinion if you do not like it then don't read it. Bye, bye now don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out!

Sorry to pop your cork PaintRoly. Maybe we are both stupid spending this much money on toys that we can't even ride in.

I meant to say $380 kit

Steel Axles are a must and should be included. The only thing about the battery strap that gets me is Xray's standard line of "we didn't include it because the best racers want to use tape" then I see Ralph's car in RCCA with a battery strap

Notice that the FT TC4 has no battery strap either? Neither does the Pro4, nor the 415, etc....
