Default oddonnel and losi

the zo1 and eight have been in every rc mag i have bought in the past three months. I never see anything from xray or mugen. Why?


Oh and of course traxxas in always in there.


let me sneak another question in here. I bought some fuel line and it has some whilte powdery residue on it. What is that? Will it hurt my engine? I am obviously gonna flush it with fuel first.

The fuel tubing is probably getting old and starting to break down a little bit.

um, because hobbico and horizon own the industry; traxxas is so flush with cash they can sponsor 1:1 racing, alot of margin in Revos it seems.

xray and mugen are real small players, in comparison. but that has no relation with product quality.

The white powder on the outside of the fuel line is normal, I believe it is a releasing agent used in the making of the fuel line.

I knew that horizon owned Losi, but slap me silly and call me sally. I didn't know Hobbico owned Odonnell. Guess you learn something new every day.

I would guess you're right, I know for a fact they own 3/4 of those named, the other 1/4 I'm not sure about because I don't know them. But I wouldn't be suprised if they do.
