Not yet bro, But there is a www.redcatracing.ca..but hes located in NB and theres another guy in Quebec.. You probably won't find a Redcat in your Local hobby store, Since alot of people do not see them as "durable RC Car's".. But thats not true at all.. I own one and I am very happy with it and Im not the only one here who feels the same, So don't feel that there won't be any parts support or customer service, But you will probably have to buy one off a website...and the people who sell them are right here on this forum.

I'd be happy to ship a car to you from BC. I think you'd be impressed with the Redcat cars. I'm an old school RC guy myself and purchased my first Redcat Volcano SV site unseen from the web. Compared to my old Tamiya trucks, they are an incredible value.

Lol...I know what you mean about being able to actually touch one first! When I bought my first redcat (earthquake), there were no dealers in Canada. All I could do was order from the US and take everyones word on this board about how great it is! Even my second redcat (shockwave) was from the US (Thanks so much to AllAboutFunHobbies for shipping to Canada at the time!). Only my latest (monsoon) I was able to get here in Canada. I was not disappointed at any of them and neither will you!

Homeplayentertainment.com Ithink they have two locations, one in Barrie and one in Mississauga. I just purchased a Dune Runner 30cc and got it from them, I live in Sudbury ON. and Igot it through Postal mail within 3 days - COOL!

Here's another vote for AmazingRCStore.com - a great dealer in the GTA that I've bought a couple RedCats from.Unlike many of the other online-only resellers they have monthly customer event all summer... the next one is next weekend! Go check it out and see a ton of.RedCats running around . Their store is also only a few minutes away if you see something you like. Sorry for.bad formatting - trying to.post from a cell phone...

Hey,

I have two Redcats, a Volcano EXP Pro and a Goundpounder. Bought them both used and they run like new. Great performance, great value. I know it nice to touch one then buy but you don't have to with a Redcat. Parts for these trucks can be found everywheres if you break something and trust me..you will. lol

If you have to buy from the web, don't hesitate to do so. I have read from other posts on this forum that Redcats customer service is great.

Find one, buy one, enjoy it.

Cheers.

Thanks FarBeyondDriven

I'm a small Authorized dealer in Richmond Hill area, I have a decent inventory and tons of parts and if I don't have the part you are looking for I will order and give you 10% off for the wait!

I also have super low shipping rates and if you're located in my area have been known to meet or deliver in person.

Check out my site and don't hesitate to email me
