This is one of the best threads ever.... even better than the dozens of "whats the best engine" "RC8 vs. Losi"

Sorry, the TQ SX8 is the same as the Nanda NRB3 or whatever it is called. Made in Taiwan I believe, or maybe mainland China.

Thumbs up

It doesn't matter but it can't be just about the money.Seems people on here buy motors that the price isn't that big of dealwhich aren't yet all made in asia.

well by those calculations it still would be cheaper then the kyosho and with a more just reasonJ/K

To me it does matter where things are made.This country was allowed to become a country that spends and not make.How long can that sustain
But i don't want to ruin this great hobby with politics and economics.Just wish there where more options

You need to look at wages and cost of living in Japan. If you think it is cheap, you are mistaken. That's why cars from Japan (as opposed to China) are pricey.

But yeah, Kyosho is overpriced IMHO.

As far as I know RS9 is still in prototype stage (RS9 is designed for USA tracks), the RS7 is readily available thought.
