    I`ll reply here just in case you havn`t seen the reply on RCU, but it`s probably a scam and he has no feedback!

    I know Rob over at HBF(Ram-tech)was going to start importing them or something but he got one and checked it out and it turned out to be pretty crappy.

    I just talked to the factory. There will be a new distributor soon. You all know his name, so just wait a few more weeks. I'll ask him to announce it if he can. Supposedly he is making alot more changes than I could have done, so that may be a good thing to wait for.

    Hey! No, I sold the Compagnucci to a guy who actually races them. For me, it turned out to be a shelf queen and an occasional parking lot car.

    This is a nice forum. I would probably have checked it out earlier, but I resist change. :batman:

    Looks like a cheap 5b knockoff. Ya get what ya pay for! Nothing like a major RC company like HPI with backing/support and parts. Been down the cheaper road and it's not cheap! Only in quality. Always someone out there looking to cash in on the popularity of a product. Just MHO and experiance:)

    Interesting that the spark plug is not pointing in the direction of piston travel like on Zen G230, CY, etc. Is this a different engine or head design?

    The one on eBay is an XRC RC-2 which is a copy of the Technokit
    As Rob said the new importer to the USA will have some soon and is asking for some changes.

    I have the on-road version RC-1 my son (11 years old) drives it. He has been hit really hard in the last two races he had it out. So far not a finish of a race weekend due to me not having parts but with the new importer that will not be an issue.

    Motor is really slow when held up to Zenoah standards BUT for the task it is fine. Starts really easy... We will see the jury is still out.

    But what people don't realize, for that cheap price, it WILL bring more people to the Gas market. I have talked to many people who liked the Baja, and the FG MT, but when i tell them its frakin $1100 or so for an RTR, they just cower!
    This might get some Nitro guys who are willing to spend $500 for a Revo, to jump to the Largescales.
    If i had the $ i would buy a bunch and some parts, i know i could move them up here in the North.

    VS will have the RC-1 with NASCAR bodies OR???

    At RCX the RC-1 and RC-2 had plenty of orders I heard about 60 but I do not know for sure. $500 or $600 RTR

    I talked with VSModelsport today about something else, and told them of my concerns. They should be getting the latest design version in their shipment. We are taking the RC-2 out this weekend with the ATVs, I'll report back Saturday night.
