Default ansmann mad rat x-pro macnum and xt pro, team c tc02 etc

Hi y'all, any one on here own any of these?
ansmann mad rat,
ansmann x-pro,
ansmann macnum,
ansmann xt-pro, team c tc02
team c tc02t, they all seem to be based around the same platform that is a clone of the kyosho rb5, lots about them on the oople forums but was wondering if anyone here has experience with them?
cheers.

I've been in this hobby for 20+ years and I've never heard of them. Either they are new to the market or just not very popular here in the states.....

just did a search on them
found 4-5 parts on ebay
They seem to be a german company that mainly makes rechargeable batteries (AA's and stuff not RC batteries) and other misc things
according to ansmann's American site they only sell the batteries over here

Seems the RC's and models they sell are only available in europe (from what info I can find on the net)

BTW never heard of them till this thread was made.

thanks for the reply folks, they are indeed German, Ansmann have been around since before i got into rc , over20 years ago!! not sure if they will be available in the states but i am thinking it wont be long as i am sure you guys over the pond would like a true competition ready chassis for $100, although associated and losi seem pretty dominant over there so perhaps not,the real surprise for me is that you can get a basic kit with body and tyres but with plastic composite oil filled shocks for half the price of the pro they are being sold in the far east re-badged as Team C, i have owned a b4 and an rb5 and by comparison the X-pro seems to be right up there, now that the 2wd buggy racing is active round my way again i cant wait to race it, compare it to the kyosho Rb5 and you will be surprised, i was.

thanks for the reply , there were a few minor issues with the Ansmann varient which was sorted very quickly but the general opinion is that these budget wonders are superb.

I'll look a lot closer next time, we had a fantastic day at the track. I had my two year old son thinking he was driving the old stampede around the track. He had a radio with no batteries in it. Awesome day at a new track. Is there a website foe these?

I dont own one of those models but my lhs sales alot of ansmann parts (antics) they seem a great entry into this hobby and seem well built with good part support over here in the UK ive bought various ansmann hopups parts like shocks,batterys,chargers etc and never had a problem with them and a friend owns the nitro virus which seems well built.

While ago i was looking at that pro version as its advetised as a 4wd truggy type on modelsport uk but was put off as it didnt look as strong as id like it to be but im sure they could be modded stronger.


This is most of there lineup

2 years old and holding a transmitter already, thats the way to go,, bet he could drive rings around me,LoL ,
team C has a web site, http://www.teamcracing.net/ , they can be purchased from rc mart, they are just in stock so spares are not listed yet, Ansmann branded ones are for europe only but you could get in touch with Ansmann uk for your nearest stockist.

I have been planning to purchase the TC02 buggy for months now and my friend just decided he wants one to.

They have alloy adjustable shocks, ball diff, slipper, and a few other nice pieces, no tyres tho?!? Gues its up to your preference!!

For any confusion they are all made by Hobbypro in HK, the line of cars are called team C, Ansmann has slightly different ones made and sold in UK. (green anodised)
TQracing sells Team C's in USA, Team C America is now selling them in USA too. Other people probably sell them also.

People might be more familiar with hobbypro's other line JConcepts.

I have one, my brother has two. They do fairly well in comps in the usa. The front is like the rb5, people say the rear is like a b4, the rims are same as kyosho

I have to Team C TC02, 99 usd from HK, bargain.

the guys i knwo that have them say to upgrade the shocks first, the stockers blow apart fast i guess.

i was eyeing up the mad rat a while ago, i figured that it was a kyosho rb5 clone due to the look of the front end.

I had an Ansmann royal flash, was very impressed in general, build quality, part durability and performance were all way up there. Been eyeing up the pro line but am really looking for something a bit more bashable. Maybe the SC truck they are releasing soon will fit the bill.

The madrat shocks are plastic, and pretty much what you would expect, first thing a madrat/macnum needs is bearings. The xt-pro/team c shocks however are second to none.

The royal flash and master smacker are not made by team C, ansmann gets them from someone else, so they cant be used to judge the quality of the team c products.

team C did put out a short course truck, for whatever reasons it's not the same scale as the rest of them, so they are releasing a roar legal one soon, actually they are putting out two

can only hope the 4wd sc is roar legal

I have yet to break anything on mine, only thing my brother has broken is the wing. Though they do have some issues, the hex hardware the kits come with are poorly made, because the plastic is so hard I had to prethread every screw with a nice 2.5 traxxas screw. then carefully put the buttery 2.0 team c screw in. Other than that my ball diff seems to come loose far to often, I am gong to replace the screw and nut with an rb5 one and see if that helps, if not Bfast makes a diff kit for them.

Hi

I recently brought the TC02T and im going to use it this tommorow in stock racing, Tamiya silvercan 27t
I took it to my hobby shop but apparently usual spur gears cannot fit due to the slipper clutch?
Any thoughts would be good....

Thanks
