Broken molds, oval dead!

Guess your talking to the wrong people, just raced at Marshall's this past weekend 24 heats of oval, so not quite dead.

dont forget there's and most other 12th scales use the same front end as well.. so they would have to discontinue them as well..

cant wait for irs lower arms.. get some crc uppers, and a set of aluminum caster blocks, and we can still race.. I would think there front end parts have to be one of there better selling pan car parts..

Gee. Maybe it's time for a new Frontend this one been out since 1992.

I don't care if ROAR does say it can only be a three shock car.
Times have changed keep the "T" bar and make a new frontend with shocks.

Crow, another voice heard from the sidelines. See ya in a couple weeks at the spectacular.

On my front end the only assoc parts are the lower a ram and the upper pivot housing. When dave gets his lower done, I will have that, nice looking piece.

Also read some where, someone else, Murdock or Lefthander, or someone is doing a new front end. It was suppose to be something like the old TRC from end.

Katf1sh, I couldn't agree with you more. Too many companies are moving overseas just so we can save $0.15 on the bottom line. It is a sad day when AE (which if you remember used to advertise the original rc10 as "the import fighter" ) sells out to a foreign company. When I have kids their three choices for employment are going to be Wendy's, Burger King, and McDonald's!

Consumers are the ones who drive it. Hopefully you aren't shopping at Walmart and are choosing the products you purchase based on quality.

Wal-Mart ? Never heard of it! seriously though, this country needs to wake up. our products are not inferior to those overseas. It's a mindset that some folks have. Also, some people will sell their souls to save a little cash. I can rest easy at night knowing that I did not sell out my country, and that I did not desicrate the memory of the brave souls who gave all to give me a chance at life in the good ol' USA. Before you go telling me that I am wrong, please remember I am 25, I drive a 1968 Dodge Charger R/t (just try finding a jap part on that one!), and I believe that this country needs a few more people to take pride in it.

Not sure Thunder Tiger's motives, but a majority of businesses move into foreign areas. For instance the company I work for has 10 domestic plants with 2 foreign joint ventures in Shanghai and Thailand. Any form of expansion is going to be overseas due to cheap labor and less regulatory measures. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 gives me job security as an Internal Auditor, because our Domestic locations have to be in compliance for the SEC. Europe, Asia, etc have not such Act. Therefore costs related to keeping in compliance is less.
