AE's going to be hurting now. When are they going to pull their head out of the sand?

When they put a real car together, I guess.

It's only fair for him to stay with Associated...kind of a handicap to keep him from winning every time!!
Good luck at the Novak Race guys!

It's friendly banter, chill man. Sure they may sell more cars, but look at the high end race cars, I'll be willing to bet Xray has sold more FK05's than FTTC4's, it's only fair to compare apples to apples. Arrival dates? Just to dip into that subject, I think we waited on B4's when those were first expected, when I was working at my LHS, we didn't see spare parts for the 18T for several weeks, and as far as availability goes, two of my LHS haven't seen a FTB4 (until last week) for several months... There are no perfect companies and there are so many variables in shipping and creating a product so I think it's understandable if there are delays and the arrival date has always been around the frist of the new year, so please calm down. I also bet there is a TC4 thread somewhere.

Good luck with the shop, David, and nice avatar!

Back to the T2, oh man, this car is going to be awesome! And just a couple weeks away!!!!

Hey King I guess you either weren't around or don't remember when AE announce the TC3 as coming soon in the Summer of 98 and the first ones didn't arrive untill September of '99 over a year later, but they don't have delays dude know what you're talking about.

I for one can't wait for my T2 I'm hoping to get one from the first sipment

People would'nt be freaking about arrival dates if:

They weren't so HIGHLY sought after.

As you can see, I've been missing in action since Thursday morning. So here's my T2 update.

Even with a hastily put together one-way setup and only a few hours of practice to slightly modify it the results were pretty amazing, although par for the course from what other team drivers have found.
