    Yeah I thought it looked like it also. It said it was Hi- speed nitro I think it is the same company that makes the redcats. If so it is going to destroy the redcat company. There is alot of HI-speed rc's I think smart tech, extreme, acme are all the same. There might even be a few more I don't know.

    RE: Ebay is sell rc cars dirt cheap

    Yeah there are super deals on ebay but i'd say do your research before you by, parts availability, compatibility, location of parts are key. Also i think its a good idea to get something thats durable and if you buy used, you buy a well maintained car!

    RE: Ebay is sell rc cars dirt cheap

    Yup, ebay rocks for nitros. I got my 1/8 torpeda pro with aluminum upgrades (himoto version of Hurricane XP pro) and a 1/8 Tornado Truck (Hi-Speed version of redcat earthquake) for less than what I would pay for a "brand name" RTR buggy or truck at my LHS

    RE: Ebay is sell rc cars dirt cheap

    I bought two cars... One Himoto Torpeda and on Hurricane. I paid less for both combined then I would have for any 1 car at my lhs.

    If you factor in shipping.... it's still a good deal... even at $60. It's still cheaper than paying the tax on a $500 car here in Canada.... as long as they use USPS and not UPS (If it's brown, flush it down).

    RE: Ebay is sell rc cars dirt cheap

    I just picked up a NIB Redcat Volcano SV off ebay for $152.50 including shipping and a starter kit. It seemed like a great deal so it was an impulse buy, this is the third RC I have bought off Ebay and all of them have been cheaper than the LHS around me.

    RE: Ebay is sell rc cars dirt cheap

    I just ordered a tornado bb off of ebay for 125.99 plus 45 shiping to cananda. This ebay thing seems to be the hot ticket for buying rc's I also boutght a megatech megachopper for 9$ pluss shiping new as well A couple of weeks ago. I am a mechanic and love messing with things and have lots of loctite kicking around. So getting this thing ready and to stay together will hopefully be not to bad for me. This is also my first nitro. I was just on youtube and saw a nitro jump a house.

    Ya, UPS brokerage in Canada is horrilbe (just paid $27 for $24 dollars worth of parts from US, but paid no duty when my buggy came from exportpro (post)) If you order anything, check how it will be sent. I own a Mail Boxes Etc. (didn't change to "The UPS Store") and have dealt with this often (way to often). If you order anything online and it is sent UPS ground and has a value of $20 or more, they will get you for brokerage.
