Default Exceed RC Discussion

Is there a reason why these Built RTR RC's are so cheap compared to the Tamiya TB-03 and TT-01?

The 1/10 Exceed RC Brushless PRO 2.4Ghz Electric Champion RTR Racing Car Fire Blue is 170 USD and it comes with everything. Why aren't more people buying it as much as the Tamiya's I mentioned?

Tamiya is one of the most well known RC companies where as Exceed... well it's just not. Exceed makes great stuff if you want a budget car or basher but the only place you can get parts for them is nitrorcx.com. There may be one or two other places you can get parts but that's really it. All in all I think Exceed is pretty good stuff and I have been impressed with their stuff given the price. Those Tamiya's you mention have been around for a long time and everyone and their mother carries parts for them so they have become extremely popular. Are you planning on buying one?

IDK, I don't know how to do most of those things and I can't seem to find anyone in rl or online to do it for me...(Not to sound lazy but I just don't wanna spend so much cash on my car and I mess up)

Wow that is expensive but it also sounds like looks are important to you which is completely understandable. If the looks are that important get the tamiya as the upgrade parts are readily available and easy to get. You can get a budget brushless system that will be just as good as what comes with the Exceed or you can get better.

Budget ESC
Budget Motor
Transmitter/Receiver combo - this Tx/Rx combo it simply the FlySky GT3B with HobbyKing's logo on it.

If your worried about damage you can do two things. 1). Buy another body for driving/bashing. 2). Just get the Exceed and not worry about it. The only other issue is I've never actually seen the Exceed Brushless Champion in stock. I know they get them obviously but everytime i look they are sold out. In that case you could buy a Drift Star which is exactly the same except with different wheels/tires/body or the Drift King which runs a different chassis but with regular on-road tires you be like any other entry level on-road car

I have the exceed madspeed and love it.For the price you can't beat it even with all the carbonfiber parts i bought for it it's still cheaper then the tamiya.I had the tamiya and i did not like it at all maybe there belt cars are good but the shaft one i had needed to many hop ups.Looking at the madspeed it looks like other brand arms and knuckles will fit.Also i like the fact it comes with ball diffs and the adapter for the spure gear.

Well, confused now... If that's the Case, I would like to find the top-of the line Exceed RC On Road Electric RTR Car then. When I say top-of-the-line, I mean:
Performance, durability, reliability, speed, drift action, best parts and everything that makes a "good rc car". Then Ill make my decision on which one I want...

The Mad speed is the Drift King. You'll need different tires as drift tires and street tires are not the same.

Bottom line just get this and two of these

He means their putty is good.

Exceed is know more for their tools, tires, oils and accessories than they are competitive vehicles.
