If and when is the real question.Iv'e already waited long enough and that was for the wrong buggy.I ordered a buggy and another truck from a different site the same day and have had them since last week and they were the right order to bad they didn't sell red cat and they answer the phone unlike tri county or red cat.

I remember when redcat was moving...someone said they had parts and to go check their store on ebay...went there and only seen cars and starter kits...now im not saying they dont....what I am saying is hey if u got parts PLEASE put up a site were we can look through what ya got and place orders...times like right now some parts are scarce...and knowing were to get a specific part without having to email tons of people would be nice...for instance someone was looking for front bumper and lower arms for a hurricane...all the places I could think of were out...then I remembered rufaster..luckily I think he found what he needed...granted people are going to have their favorite dealers...but if u wanna run and ur broke down and u can get a part somewhere else ur gonna go there...few times I thought I was going to have to order from rufaster..I have a p.o box and their shipping to p.o boxes is expensive...
Future Reference, We have always shipped to PO Box for same price.

I bought 2 hurricane pros from tricounty, and although initial contact seemed good the goods were delivered very late. This isn't the problem though.

The two cars had been removed from the original packaging and placed in another box. The cars were placed side by side in this box, and the TX's and starter kits were thrown on top. The box didn't make the journey and fully collapsed by the time I got them. The lcd's on the TX's were scratched, as were the bodies and wheels. One of the wing mounts was also broken. Both Glow plugs were DOA. One shock was bent and one air filter assembly had come off. One steering servo was also DOA and there were cracks in two rims. The nose on one of the bodies had come off. One TX not functional. One wing bent

As I am from Australia, no point complaining as postage alone to get these parts would be more than the stuff is worth. Also like to note that the engine that had the air filter off on arrival is now dead before 1 gallon, but the other one is going strong.
So now, I have fitted 645MG steering servos, bough a DX3 to replace the dead TX, replaced the shock, replaced two wheels and just putting up with the scratches. Glued the wing mount back together and getting a new SH28 6 port engine.

Costs to fix
2 servos $90
DX3 $180
Wheels $20
Engine $150
Shcok $20
Saying that, love the performance of these Hurricanes, just dissapointed with the vendor, no quality on an AUD $1000 order.

There is not much point, it is obvious nothing was going to be done about it. If they were packed this way to start with, then you would not expect any quality in the follow up service.

They were all new parts as far as i could tell, I bought them for the good price as I have always been interested in racing these things. The hurricanes definitely wet my appetite for the sport and have / will spend a lot of money on buggies now. Just getting into decent jumps and setups for different terrain, and am having a heap of fun. I was looking at getting a 'name' brand buggy for racing, but I cant see why the hurricanes would not be competitive with the right setup and tires.

I would like to thank EHROOF for the posts in this and other forums, your interest in helping the forum users gives me confidence in continuing with the redcat, can I ask what you postage is to Australia for small items like arms and screws and the like? I like to do a bulk order of spares .

The Tx's were oos , just lying on the cars, no packaging in the box at all to seperate the parts, no foam or bubble wrap, just two cars, two TX's and two starter kits thrown in a thin cardboard box big enough to just sqeeze the cars in side by side with the wheels touching.

It looks like this may not be the norm for Tricounty, looks like I just ordered the buggies at the wrong time. Be nice to get some sort of compensation for the money I spent to get them going. Obviously the DX3 was an upgrade, but the other gear is just replacing broken stuff virtually like for like.

ThevRedcat engine replacement wont work for me either, as I can get the standard 3 port SH28 with pull for around $117 delivered in 4 days. The replacement program will cost me that, unless shipping to Australia is also covered in the 1/2 retail price replacement program.

That is Unfortunate!
No....That just plain Sucks!
I would contact Tri-County via e-mail (send some pictures) and tell him what happened. I dont know if it is common to Insure an order of that Magnitude, but it Should be. Especially if it is to be shipped Overseas. Hopefully they will make it right by you.

I have done some Business (4 vehicles +parts) with Tri-County, and they have always been responsive and helpful.
In fact, I stood up for them in this very thread and endorsed them, so I am eager to see if they have anything to Say about this.

Hopefully they will grant you some Satisfaction regarding this matter.

Tri County Racing is the person responsible for my addiction to Nitro RC's! I bought my first nitro(Tremor) from them and I have been hooked ever since. I can't seem to get enough.
Thanks Tri County!!!!
Everything I ordered from them, it was drop shipped from Redcat Racing. They forgot my starter kit. I e-mailed them and they had my kit shipped in 3 days to my house.
I would do business with them again...
