Relocated from >> RC Cars, Buggies, Trucks, Tanks and more >> Off Topic Forum - Cars, Trucks, Buggies and more

More appropriate to this forum.

Sounds like someone's fishing for marketing information the lazy way.

DING DING DING! Someone give this man a Cupie doll!

He was doing the same thing in the giant scale forum, but he wound up trying to sell only what he carried instead of considering also selling what the majority of the people really liked.

I agree. I don't answer questions or polls without a name to go with them. This is the same bunch who were hawking the "Racing tank" couple weeks back, and lamented that if no one bought it, factory would cease production. However, seems engageRC has never seen one, and my suggestion to stock one was unanswered.

He wont ever sell what you might want him to acquire, we kind of tried to ask him to carry RCs and parts for some RCs we already had or wanted in the Giant Scale forum and all he did is dodge everything we suggested. And these were not just lame and bashing suggestions, these were actually valid suggestions and questions. He just replied back with more dodging and even tried to stir the pot so to speak.

I wont say more, check out the threads he has started in the giant scale forum and judge for yourselves.

tanks!
The company that makes them is [link=http://www.chunwai-model.com/list.asp?owen1=model&owen2=B2]Chunwai Models[/link]. I believe they sell direct.

Here's a link to a [link=http://www.rctankhq.com/Chunwai-Model_M1A2.htm]review[/link] and a link to a [link=http://rctankhq.com/panzerforum/index.php?topic=602.0]build[/link].

Hi Puff,
No, I haven't bought one (yet)... My economy hasn't gotten stimulated enough yet.. I think they were running around $1200, but my info is somewhat dated. Oddly enough, I didn't see a price on their web site.

I'm sure you'll hear back from them soon, their customer service seems top notch.

Yeah as soon as I saw them I knew they were the Chunwia tanks. This guys prices are way over the top. Looks like he's trying to make 7 or 8 hundred dollars on each tank no mater the scale. I would deal with chunwia direct myself if i could afford one of these tanks.
