Some of the Thunder Tiger parts actually are the same as the NTC3`s....the fuel tanks are identical

replacing the tc4 ALREADY! hrmph do they not wish to recoup the dev costs, and as for the thunder tiger buyout I hope the quality of the car that has "team asociated" written on it is good stuff, don't really matter who owns ae as long as ae continue to make good cars, we all know what will happen if the nitro tourer from ae that supercedes the ntc3 is shit, well they will have killed ae's branding now wouldn't they. If I was thunder tiger I would view the "team associated" brand as an asset, releasing a shit car devalues THEIR asset

aight I shuddup now sry guys

That Germany Toy Show couple weeks ago............by all means, it is NOT the new NTC4, but isn't it...? (that is a new Thunder Tiger TC....I have to agree, so, 1999....)

I hate belt tensioners - in the past they have always stuffed up at the most crucial time for me

Where did you get this info from and how accurate is it? Just curious since I am looking into getting a nitro for next season.

That car is the old thunder tiger TS4-N series, if thats new they must be smoking something because it looks like the one i got 4 years ago even with same parts.

To tell you the truth even though it don't look like much i had one when i first started and it handled quite well and was very smooth.

I was beating alot of the top guys with that thing with only a thunder tiger EVO motor in it which hp wise is probably less than 1 lol

the info is very accurate and the new nitro tourer should be out early next year.The new car will definately be ae not thundertiger.as i said before, thundertiger is going to be producing cars aimed at the bashing market e.g rtr or newbies.thundertiger is going to be using ae designs on their cars so that ts4n will be obsolete and thundertiger will adopt the ntc3 design into their rtr cars.

associated will be producing the racer kits and the new car is all new car.They may use bits and peices off the ntc3 but the overall design should be different.

the info came direct from associated although i don't think they will give info out to the public.

LOL,


I'm not holding my breath on a AE "racer" belt car....WAYNE, you'll get plenty of time out of your NTC3 as people still have parts for the old HPI RS4's...no reason to worry there.


Now I admit the car is mechanical piece of art. Thats why its been out for so long, it just works! But to put it on the mugen/kyosho/serpent level..i dont know about that (you'll have to be one hell of a driver)...it'll be one hell of a back up car though!

that's what i am going to do this spring. since the LHS at my track is closed on race days ( ), and i don't like stocking parts, i usually have to resort to a backup car by the end of the day (most of the time, not all ).
