You disagree, yet confirm my point. What I said was
Your main complaint was the lack of strong and/or reliable components. I know the AC's are rated pretty high in terms of power, but it seems to take alot of power to get them to work right....in off the shelf form. My main point was that slippage has nothing to do with brand. Its the fin/turbine setup. Alter fin angle and the TC will have different characteristics. You can make an AC TC slip less. Getting them to do it may be a different story. I havent heard a whole lot of good stories about customer service....but I havent heard alot of bad ones either....other than people taking their cars back 20 times to get it to shift where they want it to....The only time brand names make a difference, is in terms of engineering practices which support strength and reliability.
