Exactly, this one cost like a good 2.4 Ghz radio for car, but you can drive or pilot almost anything, it's reliable and construction is robust.
You can get decent FM receiver for 20 $ unlike spectrum stuff ...

Damon,

WOW! As a Tekin team driver that has received a large amount of FREE product and considering that the majority of the products listed on your site for sale are Tekin, do you think perhaps this is not a professional manner to conduct yourself?

You picked the wrong company to claim as inferior considering there are a large number of lipo batteries currently on the market that do not come close to meeting the ratings they claim, are manufactured with no regard for the environment or human rights and do not have proper testing to even be legal to ship by any means in this country. We did our homework and can sleep well.

You may run your business however you would like, but I must say I am almost speechless.

I was wondering when someone would bring that up.

Was there any actual testing procedure or is that "seat of the pants" testing?

WOW,

Let me start off by saying that I am a Tekin fan, I have used their products for well over 10 years and have had great results and their CS has been second to none.

That being said I have tested (On a tekin DIS350) 3400mah tekins and my 3200mah Yeah racing (Seem to be the same as diggity's packs) and the yeahs have a slight advantage. I didn't take his comments to say tekin packs are inferior just not as good as, and considering they cost less than half as much as the tekin packs a much better buy.

As for evironmental concerns and human rights, like many others on this site I am a racer first, I do not have the will or time to look up every products human rights records and other companies have been shipping them with no problems for a while now. If you have problem with them and think they are in violation contact the proper agency.

I guess what I learned from this is that if you run for Tekin they have the best battery period and you better not say anything otherwise. I always figured it worked that way but glad you cleared it up for me.

Part of being sponsored is representing your team and it's products with intergity.

This means you would not bring your own competitive product to market and claim it's better then the companies product from which you're sponsored.

That would be like the Ryan's from AE coming out with their own chassis and saying it's better or faster the AE's and still expect to be sponsored?!?!?

Bottom line on top of that is that it's not good business to simply call out other companies product and claim superiority to better your chances.

You never see Trinity bashing Orion by name, Losi and Ae duking it out by name,etc.

We wish him all the best but a little time spent researching market strategy may be in order.

I am sure there was no harm meant by what was said and maybe it was a good thing to bring to his attention. That being said, Tekin does have great products and i have used them currently and in the past. Diggity also helped out many, many racers by customizing lipo braces. A big thank you goes to both companies for everything you are doing for RC car racing. THANK YOU!

Well I like Diggity products and have all them on my GV2 and my local hobbyshop carries alot of Diggity stuff. I will continue to buy the products no matter what is going on here. I bought off his website and have always had excellent service and my products arrive quickly.

Actually looking forward to piloting my Diggity 1/18th Associated buggy this winter. Going to start building in in the next month or two. Should be killer when its all done.

So,

Jeff Cuffs really rips with your 3400's
Right?
He does use Tekin batteries, right?
I mean, he wouldn't use a competitors batteries because they are faster would he?

Besides, NO WHERE has Damon claimed superiority over Tekin stuff. Now you guys are just making stuff up.
I believe he merely stated a fact according to a GFX and track tests.

I got a couple of Diggity packs for myself, and I would say he is right.

Who care about the brand, the most important is ratio performance/price if it's good then go for it.

Can Tekin please elaborate on how your lipos are environmentally friendly and the rights of the humans who made them were not abused? Did you travel to China and tour the plant where theyre made or what?
