I read somewhere that Tenth Technology is still looking for a distributor in the US? I guess maybe the price will come down a bit when that happens so more people will get to know about the car and bring up the sales. After all the X10 is one of the coolest machine to HAVE regardless of the actual race.

Team3rd-Please dont be sorry I really didnt mean it to come out QUITE the way it did.I was simply stating to please refrain from saying things that may not hold any merrit is all.
The TT car is high in price AS WELL as other 4wd's.It's a class where you pay to play.

Richard at TT is working on an american distributor as we speak.If this does happen it can ONLY HELP as it has with Xray(RCamerica),Yoke USA and Kyosho USA.

Everyone have a Merry Christmas

Texracer: For someone so worried about "opinion" you sure put alot of "opinion" into your post. Your cost estimates on extra $ to make a buggy durable are your opinion and could be looked at in the same light you put Team3rdstreet's post. It was his opinion. It was your opinion he was wrong.

Default X10 Raffle

There are a lot of opinions about the predator being good or otherwise, just as there are about other 4wd cars being good or otherwise. The New X10 is stronger in it's design than previous versions, due to evolution of design and alterations in material choice. However, just like all other cars, if you crash it, it will break.

But, after all of the discussions going on about the car, it is a very good car, and with or without Richard being on hand, it wins races.

Why not enter the Raffle on www.the-pred.co.uk/raffle.htm and see if you can win one, so that you can find out for yourself!

Best regards

I got a chance to see the new X-10 up close (Yokomo-MX4 has one among other 4wd vehicles) and it looks pretty good. Not sure how well it drives, but at least it looked business.

DEH-How's Alaska?
Im worried when it comes to the status of a company.If you wanna play in the sand box at least use some common sense with your so called "COMEBACK".It was pretty lame.My statements are on the CARS thank you not a company's status.
I simply made a POINT based on FACTS that there are 2-3 OTHER cars priced the SAME or More Expensive than the X-10 and they are doing just fine.Thanks for the comments but PLEASE use common sense next time you decide to try and be a smartarse.

Being I have owned most of the cars listed Im not stating OPINION Im stating FACT my friend.
Kyosho even admits that the car that has been released is not perfect and may need some parts for certain drivers(Newbie's hitting things at higher speeds than normal 2wd,and tracks with BIG jumps).The Frontend has NO brace.This inlight means when you hit something with a ARM it rips the front bulkhead.
The way the Front Tower Mounts is pretty fragile.
So when replacing these items and going aluminum bulkhead the parts have what they call this cool lil thing."Its called a PRICE"Pretty neat huh.lol.
So take your so called "COMEBACK" somewhere else.
Im trying to help and pretty tired of people making "STATEMENTS" with no merrit,proof and 95% of the time no experience with the product.

Regards,
Les

Hey Les.,

Hows Texass?

So you think you're saving a company by berating a "beginner". I'm sure you earn every bit of money that Tenth Tech. pays you to do their PR for them. And that equals...NOTHING. Ya git what ya pay fer, y'all.

Of course you missed the point of my post. Let me see if I can dumb it down for you...this might entail hitting myself in the head with a hammer for a few minutes, so I can get the Texracer mentality. LOL

Team3rd made a blanket statement that a buggy over $500 bucks would not sell.( in a nut shell). You took great offense to that and could not wait to show your brilliance and experience, by letting him know he was wrong with a lengthy post as to the needs and costs associated with making all buggies, including sub $500 buggies, durable or work better. In your post you used ALOT of opinion. Some of what you said was indeed fact. Some was not. Still with me? Many of the companies you mention would take exception to what you are saying. As they feel that their product works just fine without modification. In saying that most buggies need hop ups to work better you are in effect damning them to a higher price tag and then possibly scaring potential customers away. In essence the same thing you accused Team3rd of doing.

Now, was Team3rd right?.... Nope. There is a market for a well made product even above $500 bucks. But it was his opinion and every one is entitled to one including you. There is no need to berate someone(like I'm doing to you now, since you cast the first stone) just because he says something you don't like.

I like this : "Im worried when it comes to the status of a company.If you wanna play in the sand box at least use some common sense with your so called "COMEBACK".It was pretty lame.My statements are on the CARS thank you not a company's status."

First you say you're worried then you say you're not? Which is it? Blah blah blah...ramble ramble.

In your original post you said this: "Your(sic) making statements that are opinion and when doing this you can really harm a buisness(sic)."
I thought you said you were not worried about a company? Or did you say you were? I'm confused?

And then you'd like to censor all negative posts?: "Team3rdStreet-Please do us a favor and keep your NEGATIVE Opinion to yourself."
Who made you the forum police? I don't see Moderator near your avatar. Unless someone posts contrary to forum rules everyone has a right to post. Whether that be noobs or someone like yourself that has to draw attention to themselves under the guise of experience.


Still don't get what I'm saying? YOU'RE A HYPOCRITE!!!!


Put that in your sand box and smoke it.

PS. Alaska is fine... Thanks for asking.

PSS apology accepted in advance...

DEH-Wasnt that fun.
#1 I have no affiliation to TT.

I tried to say it in the nice of ways and spin it in a way to show others TRUE examples of all the cars.Everyone takes things differently.
He Obviously didnt take any offense to it due to his reply.Sounds like a good guy with a good head on his shoulders.He simply made a comment without much thought or knowledge of the industry.Is that better MR.I want a BOW on everything that is said?Sorry I dont tame anything down.I say it like it is and you either love me or hate me for it.Im pretty sick of today's PC society and dont take offense to anything said over a computer expecially.
You call me the Police but you say what you say?Who's the Hypo now?
Please stop and share some knowledge or find someone else to police.
At least in MY POST I state alot of truth.How are they opinions when the companies themselves even will state the statements I made???
Oh you didnt know they did that did ya.Awww sorry you missed that part.
It's one thing to make comment on a company and a section of the hobby you know NOTHING about and to make lil comments about a car being strong or not.So please if your going to make comments in a post about 4wd's at least share some knowledge since most people that know me understands the way I am and actually LOVE it sometimes.They all know they can ask me questions and if I have the answer I will answer it.If I dont I will try to lead them in the right way.Now if your done.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year(Dont care if this offends you).
Any knowledge about 4wd's you care to share please do.Otherwise lets have this tiff in emails ok?
Team3rd understood that right away.Im hoping your smart enough to.

Dear Less,

Oh,man...this just keeps getting better and better.

That part about you working for Tenth tech, was sarcasm. You're probably the only one that didn't get it. Believe me nobody would mistake you for a PR person. Least of all someone who has read one of your posts.


I might have to get a team of scientists to figure out your last post. That is the most incoherent babble from you yet. After rereading your post about 5 times(very painful) I think you finally got the point of my post.

And this is my favorite line: "At least in MY POST I state alot of truth.How are they opinions when the companies themselves even will state the statements I made???"
I'm glad you didn't say ,state the statements I "state". I might have fallen out my chair laughing instead of just laughing really hard.

If you're so loved and respected on this forum then why has no one come to your aid? Not one person has put in a good word for you. My guess is they are tired of your bs and just put up with you.


Hopefully you'll think about your actions the next time you don't agree with a post on here and decide to flame someone for no reason. Kinda pisses ya off when someone does it to you, doesn't it?


Please don't stop your posts to me. I know they are off topic, but they are worth a lot of entertainment. This thread is a bit slow anyway. I guess we could start our own thread called "Texracer's incoherent posts" they are worth a lot of laughs. We could repost all your old ones and BAM we'd be up to 1500+ like that... Keep it up.

Really looking forward to your next work. Don't let your fans wait too long....

Dude, if you don't know anything about 4wd then I'm not telling you. Stop asking me. I thought you had all this experience and owned all these cars? Here you are asking me for advice? I have less than 30 posts. By your logic that means I know nothing. By my logic that means I listen more than I talk. Catch my drift? Mr. 1500...?

You last post was woefully inadequate in the irrationality department. I actually understood that one. In the future make your posts longer and ramble more. You're ruining the entertainment value.

Don't let me down.

Jimmy I thought your review of the zx-5 was spot on. Very well done. I wouldn't think of giving you a hard time. I'll be over to read your review asap. I've been checking your site everyday to see if it was done.


Take it easy and thanks for the work.
