As I sit here basking in the warm glow of my monitor and contemplating the task of 
shoveling my driveway later on, I can't help but think about the many responses from 
the litter of tabby builders out there.  Why anyone would build such an obviously 
antiquated design with its primitive slab sided armor and overly complicated 
suspension that routinely gets bogged down in our good thick Russian mud, I'll never 
know!  But to build them they have begun.  Maybe they attempt to pay homage to the 
Pittelli T1, the first operational RC combat tank.  Is there not always the first 
lemming that throws itself over the cliff and then those that blindly follow it into 
the abyss?

"Lumps of rusty green iron" or "better dead than red"?  Such animosity displayed 
towards the T5 I can't understand.  Could it be that after they have begun on their 
misguided paths that they have reviewed the T5 construction photos and have seen for 
themselves the wondrous RC combat vehicle being created by Tyng Labs?  Could it be 
that the tabby builders have developed a secret envy of the T5 and try to cover it 
with such outspoken negativity?  I surmise that the tabbies have perceived their 
inadequacies and have formed a secret alliance in a desperate attempt to counter the 
power of the Tiger Killer, to defeat it, if not in a qualitive standpoint, then in a 
quantitive standpoint!  If the tabbies wish to gather, and I expect their backs will 
be arched high and their tails puffed out, then Tiger Killer will be ready for this 
target rich environment.  I look forward with glee to this encounter.  The scene of 
the tabbies licking off the volleys of paint after their encounter with Tiger Killer 
will be long remembered one in the annals of RC Tank Combat!
