RE: Smartech Titan/ owners review

You're serious?
Honestly, no offense, but your TMaxx clone was junk.
And, you were selling them direct to anyone with a business license. I even saw them locally at flea markets and garage sales....

Smartech, you're really grasping at nothing now...comparing branded and OEM? What does that have to do with anything?

You deserve the props Foxy. The detail in your review was fantastic, and you know your stuff.

RE: fs racing 4wd?

What a difference in prices... It's worth waiting for x-rover.
Weird because I think that it was the opposite for stock parts.
Gas Tank
FS Racing - $11.18
X-Rover - $28.00

RE: fs racing 4wd?

The owner of FS Racing lives in NETHERLANDS? I don't think so. Maybe, your local distributor?
