    RC Tank Shops/Manufactures

    As I new person getting into RC Tanks it took me awhile to get a list of shops and manufactures for RC tanks. I am the type of person that likes to do research on things before I get it and we all know the Internet is a great source of finding information on this stuff. So I would like to put together a list of Vendors and Manufactures that would help other new and current RC tanker find this info quickly. Maybe we could make this sticky post up top. I'll start it and if anybody has additional information they would like to add just reply back and I will add. The more we get the better.

    RE: RC Tank Shops/Manufactures

    I would recommend against Raidentech- I dealt with them when I started in the hobby and got royally screwed. It took over a month to get my money back, adn only after multiple calls and chat sessions. In a nutshell, they sold me a tank they did not have, had backordered and had no clue when and if they would ever get in again. And the only way I found out was due to the note they shipped to me with all the accessories I ordered at the same time. Fat lot of good they did with no tank! And once I had cancelled the order, they were refusing to refund the difference in my shipping- why should I pay an extra $20 for shipping on a tank they weren't shipping?

    Anyway, they are out there but I recommend you stick to the reputable suppliers.

    I have no experience with Raidentech but that is the concensus I got as well with the dealer. They do operate under another company name as well. Maybe I should Note for them this dealer has had many issues in the past and is not a recommended shop? Or should I just take them off the list. I know some ppl still do use them which is why I added them.

    Ideas?

    RE: RC Tank Shops/Manufactures

    Raidentech has a very long and very bad history with members here on RCU. Way more negatives than positives. I think you should leave them on the list with a bad recommendation so new members don’t get sucked in.
    Man will occasionally stumble over the truth, but he usually manages to pick himself up, walk over it, and carry on.

    RE: RC Tank Shops/Manufactures

    Raidentech aren't known for their great customer service, but their prices are very good. It's a trade-off. I had a lot of back and forth with them over an HL Panther that broke down within an hour and a replacement that did the same thing. The third one worked. I subsequently bought a Tiger from them and had no problems with it.

    I don't strongly recommend them, but certainly don't flatly condemn them either. Individual experiences vary. If you're cheap or broke (or both ) go for it. If you don't mind paying extra for the goods and for service that you may not need, better to go elsewhere.

    I left them in and put a notation for them.

    Keep them coming.

    RE: RC Tank Shops/Manufactures

    For me, there is no trade-off for bad customer service. Too many out there to choose from so I would make that a deciding factor in doing business with a dealer.

    I concur, but not all of us think like me and you. Some may have different reasons for whatever but I thought it would be good just to leave it but with a notation that I put in there, Bascially be WARNED.

    RE: RC Tank Shops/Manufactures

    I agree. I once worked in the auto repair industry and we always went the 'extra mile' for a customer for we believed he could always go somewhere else to spend that $600.00 to $1,00.00 on his car repairs. Whether it was a free vacuum, car wash, free oil change coupons or just thoroughly explain and show what we did to their car and that we are there for them in the future.

    It's so easy to take someones money and ship something out, but service after the sale always brings them back.

    RE: RC Tank Shops/Manufactures

    How true, gentlemen, now true. Anyone can sell you a car, or a tank, or tracks and parts. It's service that brings the customer back. That is not an absolute, however. The only absolute is there are no absolutes.

    I would recommend also

    pices are a bit higher than asiatam, but customer support is great, and they have custom tanks available. English site too, location in Germany.

    I'll leave this open for a week or so for ppl to comment or add. Then I'll ask the admin to stick this at the top.

    For me this is very helpful in figuring out where to go for things.

    Also, aren't there more manufacturers besides the 3 that I have down. There has to be more.

    I've got one more - the-rc-dynasty on eBay. IT is true that they do not actually have a shop, but they have an ebay shop and have treated me very well when I've dealt with them.

    You'll want to add Hooben to your manufacturer's list.

    http://www.hooben.com/afv_e.html

    I was going to give you Andrew Design's website but see its down & their website domain name available for sale. Are they still in business?
