I'm not really sure what your point is since you've admitted not seeing or running one........ to make assumptions and judgments doesnt make any sense to me. And to compare the SX8 to the swift is like comparing your 8ight to a mini T........ 2 totally different vehicles

95% of everything on the market right now is made in either china or taiwan..... and like Angelo mentioned its up to the factory, dollars invested, experience etc that determines the final product. Pretty simple

Our relationship with the factory is solid...... we have a TOP notch car at a price noone else with comparable quality will ever approach. period

My car handles like a dream, is bombproof, no problem with support.Quality is on par with xray imo. It will take a lot more then the ignorant to make me switch brands.

Chill out!

If stuff are not made in China, I guess we cannot afford nothing now..

You visited Nanda, good deal, its a very unique experinence to visit someone else's company!! They usually do not show their production environment to the others. But looks like you are having some busines, such as an importer etc...Look at this thread in this forums, I do not see many outsiders, usually messages are posted by the same group of people.

See how many people will buy one! Once again, if you see OEM products, like they can sell it under different brands?? Hum..I may stay away. Even thunder tiger EB4, Cen matrix, all these are good buggies, but hardly earn popularity here in USA! I think this hobby can definitely win sales by popularity. I have 8ight, and yes I have problems with them too. If you would like to support Nanda, try to convince people buying one from different perspectives.

Do you see MBX5 is being sold under company XYZ?

Do you see 8ight is being sold under company YJK?

I am not saying TQ is not a good buggy, Nanda did a good job to earn the contract to make this buggy with TQ company!

Every buggy will have their weakness areas, but it dont mean they are no good. Weather to determine this is a good buggy or not, it's so subjective. But, i would say 80% driver, 20% buggy!

If I post my points in Ofna or Losi website, I will earn more haters! But, I am NOT trying to start a flame or hating TQ!!!!!

I do not hate TQ, as a matter of fact that I am using TQ fuel myself. I am very netural with TQ buggy as I have not yet touched and run it yet. But, I feel I want to say something about this new TQ buggy. I could be totally wrong, but hey that's the purpose for setting up forums/threads to talk about stuff. But, a few months down the road, we will see if the new TQ buggy will hook up some 8ight, RC8, mugen drives...Happy rcing

Dear friend

im not having go at you im only telling you the facts so you can understand thats all .

we are all friends here and your included as one of my friends ok .

so anything you need to know please ask

with maximum respect Angelo

Hey guys there is a thread on RCuniverse.com in the buggies section of a guy asking about the SX8. I really do not know anything but thought you guys could help. Another guy said he knew someone who got sponsored and it broke over and over again and gave it back in one weekend. It is always a friend of a friend of a friend who says stuff like that and knows nothing about what broke either. This seems like a very nice well built buggy to me and might be picking a couple up to sell on my site and try out. Later.

There were a couple of clowns in ontario canada that had the earlier version of the car last december who broke a bumper which left the lower hinge pin exposed, which led to the pin coming out and breaking an arm. They decided right there to dump the car deeming it "unreliable". Not sure if thats the incident your reffering to.
The car hasnt changed a whole lot since then but runs extremly well in the hands of people with a clue. The big bore shocks and new chassis made the car even better.
Try one out, you wont be disappointed.

Default Sx8

Well I am sure there will always be some racers that are not happy with something about all cars.

I have been racing 1/8 scale for 5 years and have worked with many cars,I will also say noun are perfect.

The SX8 is our car and we feel very comfortable that the factory we are working with has proven that they have the ability to build and desighn a product that will stand beside any thing on the market today.

Gm makes many brands of cars all controlled by price,if you bought a Saturn you wouldnt think that the same company also produces Cadillac right.The old saying will never change you get what you pay for.We felt it was time to give the racers race quality at the working mans price.

Well after a very long week of waiting, i finally got my new SX8 buggy today and all i can say is WOW! i opened it up and first flipped through the manual and everything is very neat and well organized! They put everything in the manual and more! i started to build up today be for work and everything goes together very smoothly.

A huge plus that was added in the box, they added the new BB shocks and i also received the stock shocks as well! as i started to finish the rear end i came upon new hinge pins! No more E-clips! Very impressed! I will post up more info and pics later tonight!

Ethan

Does this SX8 buggy come pre-assembled like the Caster and OCM or is it a complete kit in pieces that has to be built?

The buggies come as a complete kit that needs to be built, atleast this way you can build it right from the beginning.. its one build that you will enjoy
