i wanted to get back into nitro.
i was hesitant to get a redcat, as i have heard so bad things.
but i was offered a backdraft 3.5 NEW at a good price. and it sure did look nice.
during the breakin process, the recoil broke![:@]
$30 and a week later i finished the breakin.
3 tanks later, the stock throttle servo failed. [:'(]
i replaced it with a traxxas servo.
3 tanks after that, the REPLACEMENT recoil broke!!![:@][:'(]
thats breakin and 6 more tanks and ive gone through 2 recoils!!!
by this point i like the buggy, it handle nice and is pretty quick. i have jumped it alittle and it seems overall to be fairly durable.
if it werent for the servo and recoil i would say that this redcat is well worth the money. but it seems that redcat still has some stuff to get right
