Wow..... old thread.....

If I had to say any particular company had a good product, but just not enough push or support to back it up, its MRC / Academy. I had the sbv2 pro 4wd buggy, very nice in my opinion. They also had that TC that looked decently engineered, along with other vehicles. But for whatever reason, they aren't even on the map (comparatively speaking)... I guess it goes to show just how much hiring really big names and running the bigger races makes a difference.

(Not bashing them at all, btw).

Another flop was the Losi MT's

Losi Hydra Drive.... I loved it, but it was a pain compared to the slippers we use today.

And Losi had slippers also..it was meant to help on lose blown out tracks..the "flop" was guys didn't know how to use them..the same with the smart diff..it's just a tuning tool, they do work, you just have to know how to drive with them..I always thought the sportworks line was a flop..

This would have been my pick. That Kyosho Maxxum FWD was the worst handling piece of junk I ever owned.

They put dent's in their exhaust's just to make it fit!

Colt shaft drive cars, the only shaft drive car I've seen where the diff(s) can be put in the wrong way.
