well i was thinking of getting a few models for the guys at my shop to teach them more about the batteries and rc in general,i looked at there new models about 2 months ago,i decided on the 1/8 scale light truck with the .18sh engine,i have always wanted a larger vehicle with a small block to see how much power i can make from the small block,kind of a challenge thing,i decided on the landslide 18,afterall it was there new vehicle so i figure parts would be around for a while at leas,so i saved my money and went online last night to order 2 of them and what do you know?there are discontinued?what the hell is going on,there were brand new like a few months ago.the first time i seen them they were out of stock and now thewy are discontinued?so so much for getting a redcat,its like they dont even sell trucks?i mean who put out a truck for only 3 or 4 months?losi still sells the xxx-t,hpi still sells the savage,whats with redcat?glad they didnt have one in stock for me,ever.because now i would be out of luck as far as parts go.every time i find a redcat i like they never have it for me?come on guys step up your game?i mean do you just do one run of a few dozen trucks and then thats it?the landslide was a new vehicle a few months ago and now it is discontinued?i never heard of a company doing a vehiocle for less than 6 months?i still want a redcat just because they come with the best engines but now i am quite nervous of getting one,by the time i get the thing broken in and running it will be discontinued and have no parts avalable?
No worries about getting parts, Redcat Racing has changed some models to better there product line but they still offer parts for all the older discontinued models.
