Your servo's croaking has nothing to do with us.
Comparing a vac formed body to the engineering in an RC car ain't apples to apples. Its like me calling you and bitching my cylinder head is rubbing on the roof of your body so your body must be defective because the roof line is not high enough. you have no control of what engine I put in my car.
If your disc rubs your engine case fix it, I know you can handle it. The disc has been exactly the same for 5 years!!!!! I have run every Novarossi and Serio with 18/50 pinion and spur combo and it does not rub. Now I have no idea what is in your car for an engine it could be any one of 40 new ones released by numerous manufacturers in the last 5 years. If they designed their case so it hits our disc I cannot control that!!! If its a nova or serio I can show you ten cars that don't rub so it is something else causing it to be jacked up. (Trim the fin so it clears) I know you're more intelligent than that though your last three posts are starting to put that into question.
Is the car perfect no!!! so let me pose this question. would you rather us hold back the update parts and market it as a new car for 400 dollars each year so then you could purchase another 400 dollar kit for spares like everyone else does or would you like us to make a competitive kit available thats optionable for 200/260. given that you could have 4 new kits for the price of our competitors 2 and know that next year you won't be sitting on an obsolete car worth 150 bucks and 400 dollars of spare stuff you could use to wipe your ass with.
The serpent 710 has disposable rear pod plastic and I have had many a serpent tank that leaked at the cap. Don't worry they'll sell you a new model next year.
The MTX3 as good as it is had leaky fuel caps in the beginning and the front axles fell out. don't worry a new model's comming
Remember the Veteq
Show me a perfect car and I'll give you a Nickel. as a friend of mine says (Bitch up or Man up its your choice)
All that said sorry you had a bad track day we all do at times.
PS you were never accused of lying I just said we had not seen it. What I'm accusing you of is being to damn lazy to pick up the phone and call RD and tell them you have a defective part. I spose its easier to piss and moan about it here.
Wow, thats a good answer ...
Im from Chile, Southamerica, so i have to deal (as a 5 years RC car pilot) with ordering from USA or Europe parts for my RC stuff and waiting for 15/30 days to the packages arrive to my house, and PATTIENCE and WORK its all that this hobby demand from us. Its just plain illogical to think on buying a kit that does not need nothing of your work in order pass over issues/problems ...
Until 1 month or so i was runing my Yokomo GT4W2L and i can tell you this car can be as competitive as any other but wow how much work i have been puting on this chassis over the years ... now im training with my Team Magic G4 EVO and its a fantastic car !! ... i know that will have issues to solve, but nothing that a couple of minutes or hours of workshop and posting problems here cant resolve ...
In my whole country there are 3 of this kits and NOT SINGLE ONE have any issue related with fuel leakage ... the only problem till now are the fragility of the front universals and "for me" the reduced space to put the receiver (MY PROBLEM cause im a big hands guy who its terrible working with small spaces and wires) ...
well ... just my opinion, i think this thread on the last days have been acumulating a lot of adrenaline because of NOTHING ... there not a single PERFECT RC KIT IN THE WORLD !!! ... as Motorman says, maybe for a "perfect" mongoose you would have to wait a couple of years and finally will get a 400/500 dollar kit that its "perfect" but then you will say "but its outdated regarding the new technologies" ... so .. the history begins again ...
sorry about my bad english ... if someone speak spanish or portuguese here, i will re-write this stuff hehehehehe cya !!!
