    Why a difference in price?

    Could someone explain this to me.... I understand that Exceed's 1/10 Buggy is the Redcat's Tornado BB which even share the same part number in the manuals. So why is it that when you decide to buy a part in Redcat you will pay more for it? I understand that they use better parts on certain items, but lets use the servo for an example, is the servo installed on the Tornado BB the same servo used on the Exceed 1/10 Buggy???? If so why would it costs more??

    The servos are the same, the reason the redcat is a little more money is because of the motor, and the billow ball supension. I think the exceed compairs more to the tornado XP which uses a c-hub designed front end. This being said the tornado BB is a better vehicle than the exceed which is based on the lower grade tornado xp version. Hope this helps clear up some things for you.

    actually most of the electronics are better in the redcats, also redcat dealers usually have the parts cheaper than the redcat company themselves, if you check most companies sell their parts and cars more than what dealers and hobby shops sell them for, its just the way it is.

    I agree that the 1/8 electronics are better, but we are talking about the 1/10 model. The electronics in the 1/10th are the same on both. Same futaba control and 3003 servos.
