I thought foxy owned some of the 1/5 redcats?
Maybe im thinking of another mod tho. I know there is a mod who's had a 1/5 redcat and has posted both in the 1/5 forum and in this forum.
We have to remember that forums are a place for expressing opinions. Like it or not, thats how it goes.
Yes, foxy is a mod. Be he is also human, and we all have bad days.
I personally dont get the hang up over redcat not making their own stuff. They sell them, provide parts and a good warrenty. Why pick on them for not making the models themselves?
All I know, is my $170 brushless tornado will smoke a $250 traxxas (brushed) model and hold its own against a $300+ vxl model.
and I have no more breakage with my tornado then I did with a rustler vxl (which had lots of RPM upgrades)
Don't worry nitro, there's a little cadre in here mixed in amongst the genuine new hobbyists and fans, which are just super-clicky, go figure. I've explained my position over and over again, but they understand things that aren't there. I suppose its to be expected with so many Redcat haters around, but I am not one of them. Ask Darin, we used to chat regularly, but we lost touch for a while now. Like I care what Ed thinks about me. lol.
I've owned and worked on several HSPs, but no actual redcats. As I mentioned above, I think Redcat adds value (in the form of customer service) to the HSP range.
I actually thought my post was helpful, as the OP could have gone to HSPs site and see what they offer, then maybe approach redcat concerning what he saw. I genuinely don't know if HSP or Redcat has a boat, if they don't they should consider one. I have no hang up with resellers at all, as long as they add value, which I believe Redcat does. I feel sorry for some of the hobbyists that get into it with some of the dealers in here though.
