nitrorcx is those hobbypartz people, impossible to work with if you have problems, very poor service and to be avoided if at all possible

+1 save up a little more and go with a better brand. I've found that buying something cheap usually isn't cheap in the long run once things start going wrong.

i have the exceed sunfire brushless from nitrorcx it was my first RC and that is the one RC that i STILL love. parts for it are cheaper than for my rustler and it seems to be more durable. the downside though is that i can't just go to the LHS to get the parts they do have to be ordered online.

all in all, my sunfire was the best 140 i have ever spent as far as RCs go

i am a basher not a racer though so if you're looking for a racer, i have heard that the sunfire is pretty good on the track as well

i havent bought a vehicle from nitrorcx, but i have bought several parts from hobbypartz(same people)

their service was fine, until on 1 order a radio showed up at my door busted. I emailed their customer service and got NO responce! there is no excuse for that.

with redcat, they have customer service on par with brands like traxxas.

but, like i said i never actually bought a vehicle from nitrorcx. but based on hobbypartz not responding to me email i never will.

some of exceed's models are nearly identical to redcats, as neither company manufactures the vehicles but imports them. but in my experience, redcat imports them an supports them.

i personally havn't ever had trouble with nitrorcx or hobbypartz. but there are always lemons in customer service and your perception of the company rests on whether or not you get that lemon

like i said, the items i recieved(except the remote) have all been perfect and shipped fast and at a good price. but not getting ANY answer back when i email them is pretty lame. whats the point of a customer support email if they dont answer?

i can say, i have an exceed mad speed(got it used, but its stock) and once i tightened up the rear ball diff it drifts pretty good for a $100 car!
