lol, no bro, not directed twards anyone, its just the way it is 95% of the time.

I have heard about how i was running in the street and my front arm just broke, i was laughing so hard at my lhs that the whole store started laughing. it wasnt a redcat, an hpi rs4 i think, it was just funny how the guy was like, i didnt hit anything, it just broke, it was so obvious that something was hit, the wheel was out of round, you could see the body was cracked.

I didn't think so. Wanted to clarify things though. I have definitely noticed people putting things up, like they haven't done anything wrong. I feel like I have caught on to stuff pretty quick. Thanks bro.

it seems like the move really screwed them up, phone systems are still funky and stuff. I know what your talking about, nothing like talking in person.

We are sorry for the delays in phone messages and the full mail box. We lost a few guys during the move due to the new location, and as many of you (workers) know that when you are training new people it takes more time to do anything then when you are just understaffed. We now have some good workers here and are getting all of the problems fixed. just be sure that when you have to leave a message that you leave a name phone # and a message and when you say your phone # be sure to say it slowly and clearly. that way we will be able to call the right person back also try to include a date when you called.

there is either a nut or a screw where the carb mounts into the crankcase.

This thread was last posted in back in 2008. Also, we prefer more constructive posts in a product support forum. If you wish to make a new thread to outline your disappointment with your Redcat, go ahead, but be prepared to defend your position, as there are many here who have had many gallons of fun from their cars and would have been happy to share with you how to solve the niggles that the car develops, had you asked them. As for needing to change the brake pads and tires, it's a budget car. If you expected indestructible for $300, then your expectations need an adjustment.

In order to prevent digging up of the old issues in this thread from many years ago, I must lock it now, but as I say, feel free to post a new topic describing the problems the car has, and we can probably help you get through them at minimal extra expense. If you choose to do so, keep it calm and civil. Thanks.

Locked.
