FTM is still the US distributor.
Website got hacked and is being rebuilt.
Contact Bill Dolch on here for orders or questions.

Intech has been unable to provide consistent US support for over a year now. Great short course truck. Mine drives awesome and rarely breaks. But if and when it does, no one else at the track will have parts, the hobby shop won't have parts, heck no one in the United States sells parts right now. I shouldn't have to order a servo saver on eBay from France for the truck.....
Really bummed by the lack of effort on the part of Intech Taiwan to address the distribution issue. Without reliable sellers, it doesn't matter how good the product is.
Guess I will be looking to join the Tekno club... bummed...

I only went online. I did not message him direct. Probably should have.

Ended up ordering one from someone in France via eBay.

Completely unacceptable for a supplier to allow such a situation to occur for multiple months. What good is it to design and produce such a quality piece and then totally drop the ball with distribution?

BarryJCM above sent me a spam link to a website that appeared to be fake... it had no search engine and no parts for InTech anywhere that I could find... I sent him a follow-up email and got no legitimate response.

There was a guy on the FB page for InTech that was claiming to distribute parts through Puerto Rico, but I haven't checked back since to see if he ever got his webstore running yet.

I can't speak for the 1/10 buggies, but the SC and 1/8 buggy have been durable rides for me as a part time/some time racer. When I switched to the SC I dropped my lap times significantly at the 2 tracks I was running at regularly. Went from being a top B-main guy every time out to mid-pack in the A-main at the more competitive venue and top 3 guy to clear class leader at the less competitive venue. Unfortunately I don't race much anymore (kids stuff) and Intech has royally dropped the ball with US distribution. If they get that figured out, I would recommend in a heartbeat. Until then, steer clear...

The InTech Taiwan main website now links to the Droopy Hobby shop site out of Puerto Rico for the US distributor. I have also seen some activity on the Intech USA FB page, but very very little. Barry Bedlion (Intech US FB page admin) had announced himself as the US team manager last year and had reached out to me with a parts support issue I was having. At the time there was no continental US inventory and I believe he had ordered a box of stuff direct. I had already placed an order from France for the key parts I needed before a big event and then life got in my way after, so haven't followed with him up like I shoulda.

I am not racing off-road much due to kids activities, doing some dirt oval though. Figure I am going to keep running my Intech stuff until the parts I have run out. Then I am going to move on to a company that can make a kit AND support the kit. I shouldn't have to chase parts from Europe for my rig...
