yeah jason i understand where your comin from, but like wyd said dont let one bad egg ruin your top notch stuff. i bet that they were just scared of the competition if you do stop with ae stuff i might have to sell my tc4 and get an xray or pro 4 so i can still use the stuff that you make your stuffs the best

Jason, have you considered making any Yoko parts? Yok has alot of cars out and not one are stiff enough for the rug.

The TC4 thread is a shame. I just finished reading the last 10 pages of it. I'm not to sure what those guys were thinking(especially the AE "reps"). The TC4 is mostly sold (and designed) to newer racers, and you make the car good enough for the die-hard racers. All everyone does is complain about the FT kit, when they can just buy your stuff and be faster and cheapier

Default Jason, that's all the more reason to put out products for...

the TC4. AE would like nothing more than to chase you away, because you cut into their profits. AE's decision to take short cost/cuts means nothing but good news for an after market company like you. They are not going to put the effort into details. There are alot of customers like me that want the best designed part avaiable. TC4 owners will choose your parts over AE upgrades. Stick it to them. Don't give up man, what about your loyal fan base customers? At least make those shock towers you talked about. You will sell the cr@p out of them.

hey guys,
thanks for all the support.i gotta tell you,what bothers me most is how they argue with customers with problems with there cars and are freindly with the happy customers.that is no way to do business.i also get bothered by the engineer posting his foolish comments.they want me to post where i placed everything on the chassis for them to see after they already copied me. and then critisize me for not getting specific.they are funny.and then to be questioning anyone after the mess they made from a good existing design.the wrong choice of materials,god,it looks like the trew the parts on the chassis and placed them where they land. im just surprised that torrence is still employed after the abortion of a car he spat out.anyway,enough of me venting.i feel ya guys,i may just go ahead with the projects and be insired by the customers and friends that want them.

thanks guys,
jason

Thanks! It is running great! I finally have all the Nomadio telemtry stuff working (motor temp and battery voltage). Pretty cool stuff.......
Now I just have to improve my driving....
Don't get me wrong, the carbon TC4 chassis from Associated wasn't bad but the BMI takes it to another level.

Works very well.

And I just bought a TC4 so I could BMI it.

Oh yeah quality control problems again. The kit was missing a spring perch. Last kit had the wrong shock parts(10l2). Before that the kit had a defective shock(b4). Kit before that I had screws that looked like rivets(T4). Before that the pipe had a crack in it and a hinge pin was too short(NTC3). Yea and i still buy there kits. These for the most part were minor problems but some where a real headache.
