I hope for real US distribution, the fact the only 5th scales that get any attention around here is the baja and the 5ive sucks IMO. If even a quarter of the aftermarket support existed for FG as it does for hpi and Losi's 5th scales. They would would be kings right now.

I went to their website and it would seem that they are merely a distributor for FG product in France. I sure hope FG will live on since I have a couple of them. I haven't seen or worked on a Losi 5ive but I've dealt with enough Bajas to realize how much nicer the FG product is out of the box. They have some aftermarket support overseas, but not as much because there aren't as many weak points on them that need improving to begin with.

Doubt it... What's wrong with the losi 5ive??? Does FG even have anything in the same class and quality?? (SCT)
i allways thought FG offroad stuff was more of a bashers car like a baja than a race car like Losi and MCD?

please correct me if I'm wrong

I don't think he meant that Losi sucks, I think he meant that HPI and Losi getting ALL the attention and no attention for FG sucks.
