You won't regret it.
The Ruckus WAS NOT even a Hobby People (Global Hobbies) product! It's a Horizon Hobby product they import and HP sold as a dealer while looking for their own product line. http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...k-rtr-ECX03012
It is hardly honest to blame your problems with the Ruckus on Hobby People! My grandson (7) has a DHK Wolf which he's now starting to club race and I have a DHK Hunter Brushless I've been racing a while. DHK makes their cars and trucks entirely themselves except for the electronics (ESC, Motors and Servos are HobbyWing a highly regarded manufacturer in electric planes, boats and cars; and of course DHK does not make their own Nitro motors.) DHK also makes parts (suspension, body parts and chassis) for other well known RC upper level brands. That's how they got their experience to make their own RC off-roaders, which Global (HP) is the exclusive North American importer and Distributor. RC Car Action in a full review gave the Hunter an excellent ready to race rating.
The ONLY weak link in the DHK lower priced trucks is using a plastic gear steering servo, which just won't last long in any RC Truck or Buggie, so you spend $20 and put in a Metal Gear one. Otherwise, the "1/10th" scale DHK Hunter is based mostly on their own 1/8th scale full race electric Zombie Truggy, a pretty nice pedigree.
Try not to bash something you have misinformation on. Thanks
DHK 1/10th Hunter BL - 1/10 Hunter BL Chassis - 1/8th Zombie (75% the same)
